Symphony #3 ; Elegy ; Lament for Beowulf by Howard Hanson( )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hanson described his symphony as "large-proportioned" and "full-throated"--True estimates of melodic curves, dynamic thrusts, and ripeness of color that yield a music of discernment and craftsmanship. Tonality is the king in this musical court, dressed in modal array. One senses a religious fervor throughout the score. It has emotional impact; it rings true. In the Hanson symphony there is no false posturing. It is music with a wonderful rapport of style, finish, and romantic beauty. The Elegy in Memory of My Friend Serge Koussevitzky represents a long and productive association between Hanson and the Boston Symphony. A suave, flowing theme for strings opens the Elegy and at once sets the mood of the work. Although scoring for full orchestra, Hanson treats his musical forces with the utmost economy. Dramatic utterances in which the brass figure prominently alternate with warmly expressive string writing. The work swells to a mighty climax and concludes in a hushed phrase played by the upper strings. The Lament for Beowulf was, in the words of the composer, "to realize in the music the austerity and stoicism and the heroic atmosphere of the poem. This is true Anglo-Saxon poetry and may well serve as a basis for music composed by an American ..." Musically, the work follows the text, the following précis of which Hanson provides: "There is a brief picture of the great burial mound by the sea on which the funeral pyre of the hero is built. A great beacon mound is constructed and on it are placed the trophies of the hero, mementos of his famous battles and victories. The women lament as the mound is built by the warriors. Then follows an episode in which the wife of the hero and her handmaidens voice their grief. The young warriors in a group surround the bier of their dead king and tell of his prowess. The work ends with the eulogy of the great hero." - Booklet in container
The tragedy of Cymbeline by William Shakespeare( Book )

18 editions published between 1893 and 1923 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first full-scale edition of Cymbeline for thirty-seven years. Based firmly on Roger Warren's extensive experience of the play in rehearsal and performance, this edition shows how Shakespeare draws upon a wide range of sources to create a self-sufficient dramatic universe, combining virtuoso theatrical and poetic means to present a story of a marriage imperilled by mistrust and painfully rebuilt through the physical and spiritual journeys undertaken by the heroine and hero, set in a context of international conflict. A full and detailed commentary pays close attention to the play's complex, evocative language
