Vivaldi by Michael Talbot( Book )

65 editions published between 1978 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 2,118 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

The chamber cantatas of Antonio Vivaldi by Michael Talbot( Book )

17 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Detailed survey of Vivaldi's unjustly neglected chamber cantatas, showing them to stand comparison with his more famous works. Vivaldi's chamber cantatas for solo voice, some forty in total, are steadily gaining in popularity: but because of their relatively small place in the oeuvre of a composer famed for his productivity, and also on account of the general scholarly neglect of their genre, they are little discussed in the literature. This book comprehensively explores their literary and musical background, their relation to the composer's biography, the chronology of their composition, and their musical qualities. Each cantata is discussed individually, but there is also a broader consideration of aspects concerning them collectively, such as performance practice, topical allusion, and the conventions of Italian verse. The author argues that while Vivalid's cantatas are not as innovative as his concertos and operas, he produced several masterpieces in the genre that rank with his best music.

The business of music by Michael Talbot( Book )

11 editions published in 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is business, for music, a regrettable necessity or a spur to creativity? Are there limits to the influence that economic factors can or should exert on the musical imagination and its product? In the eleven essays contained in this book the authors wrestle with these questions from the perspective of their chosen area of research. The range is wide: from 1700 to the present day; from the opera house to the community centre; from composers, performers and pedagogues to managers, publishers and lawyers; from piano miniatures to folk music and pop CDs. If there is a consensus, it is that music se
The musical work : reality or invention? by Mike Talbot( )

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
