Vivaldi by Michael Talbot( Book )

62 editions published between 1978 and 2014 in 8 languages and held by 2,159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vivaldi has emerged as a major composer of the eighteenth century. Known as the Red Priest (for his striking red hair) Vivaldi left the active priesthood to teach music at a girls' school, shaping a group of charity pupils into a world-class performing ensemble. He became Italy's most sought-after composer, yet, unwise in business affairs, he died alone and destitute in 1741. This carefully researched text examines the life and works of this cosmopolitan musician

The finale in western instrumental music by Michael Talbot( Book )

7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The knowledge that finales are by tradition (and perhaps also necessarily) 'different' from other movements has been around a long time, but this is the first time that the special nature of finales in instrumental music has been examined comprehensively and in detail. Three main types of finale, labelled 'relaxant', 'summative', and 'valedictory', are identified. Each type is studied closely, with a wealth of illustration and analytical commentary covering the entire period from the Renaissance to the present day. The history of finales in five important genres -- suite, sonata, string quartet, symphony, and concerto -- is traced, and the parallels and divergences between these traditions are identified. Several wider issues are mentioned, including narrativity, musical rounding, inter-movement relationships, and the nature of codas. The book ends with a look at the finales of all Shostakovich's string quartets, in which examples of most of the types may be found

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Like literature and art, music has?works?. But not every piece of music is called a work, and not every musical performance is made up of works. The complexities of this situation are explored in these essays, which examine a broad swathe of western music. From plainsong to the symphony, from Duke Ellington to the Beatles, this is at root an investigation into how our minds parcel up the music that we create and hear
