"This book is the first guide to Berg's second opera, Lulu, written in non-technical language and intended for those students and music lovers wishing to become familiar with one of the masterpieces of twentieth-century music. Jarman presents a clear and concise introduction to the musical language and to the intricate musical and dramatic structure of Berg's opera. The volume also examines the literary background, the genesis, composition, and tortuous posthumous career of the work. The final chapters survey the performance history and suggest a possible interpretation of this complex and challenging composition. An important feature of the book is the inclusion of source documents and critical responses to the opera. Illustrated with photographs from the premiere and from recent productions, the volume also includes a synopsis, bibliography, and discography."--Publisher's description

1 edition published in 2004 and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Als Requiem für die an Kinderlähmung gestorbene 18-jährige Tochter Manon von Alma Mahler aus ihrer Ehe mit Walter Gropius komponierte Alban Berg 1935 sein Violinkonzert und widmete es "Dem Andenken eines Engels". Es ist d a s Violinkonzert des 20. Jahrhunderts. Benjamin Britten schrieb sein Violinkonzert für den spanischen Geiger Antonio Brosa, der es auch 1940 in der New Yorker Carnegie Hall uraufführte. Die spanische Herkunft des Widmungsträgers spiegelt sich mitunter deutlich in der Komposition wider. - Zusammen mit dem BBC Symphony Orchestra unter Paul Watkins interpretiert der vielfältig kammermusikerprobte Daniel Hope (jüngstes Mitglied des legendären Beaux Arts Trios) beide Werke. "Was dem jungen Geiger ... besonders zugute kommt, ist seine langjährige Kammermusikerfahrung: Selten habe ich diese beiden Werke so zerbrechlich und zugleich fein ausgelotet gehört wie hier", jubelt der Rezensent von Klassik-heute online. Bergs Violinkonzert ist wichtig für alle - zugreifen! (pr)
