Callas at Juilliard : the master classes by Maria Callas( )

27 editions published between 1987 and 1998 in English and Japanese and held by 1,507 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Ardoin's transcription, returned to print in this volume, captures the insights of a supremely self-aware artist of impeccable musicianship. In detailed commentaries on seventy-five arias, she talks and sings her way through famous passages of Norma, Violetta, Mimi, and other heroines, not as the imperious diva of her reputation but as a thoughtful artist passing on a great tradition. The intensity that she brought to her roles derived from the clear artistic insight she demonstrates here. With hundreds of music examples, Callas at Juilliard is a truly invaluable resource for every young singer and serious opera lover, and for all those who must have Callas in her own words."--Jacket

"The Furtwangler Record is an attempt to analyze and explain this phenomenon, a study of Furtwangler's subjective, compelling, and creative style of music-making. The introductory Part One is devoted to an overview of Furtwangler's place in the mainstream of the German school of conducting, his career and personality, and the quality of his art. Part Two, the bulk of the book, consists of detailed, illuminating commentaries on each of his recorded performances."--BOOK JACKET

Valery Gergiev and the Kirov : a story of survival by John Ardoin( Book )

11 editions published between 2001 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Acclaimed music journalist John Ardoin focuses on the inspired directorship of Valery Gergiev in this celebration of the Kirov theater and its heroic survival. In the 1990s the great artistic institution regained its original name, the Mariinsky Theater, and thanks to Gergiev's tireless efforts won back its status as Russia's premier opera theater. At Gergiev's invitation, Ardoin moved to St. Petersburg and endured the long Russian winter of 1995-1996 to chronicle the struggles and triumphs, the people and politics, of opera and ballet at the Kirov. Four stories are woven together in these pages: an intrepid arts reporter's exhilarating year of discovery in Russia; a lively portrait of the jet-setting Russian conductor; a history of the theater and its fabled occupants since its inception in 1860; and the tale of an artistic entity surmounting great odds to meet the 21st century."--Jacket
The Callas legacy : the complete guide to her recordings by John Ardoin( Book )

16 editions published between 1991 and 2003 in English and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Ardoin analyzes every recording made by Maria Callas, the most influential of twentieth-century opera singers and one of the most prolific recording artists of all time. John Ardoin's expert recommendations in this biography through sound will guide both opera neophyte and opera fanatic to the best of Callas' many recordings, all of which have been reissued on compact disc, including the legendary live performances captured on so-called pirate recordings, and Ardoin also specifies which live versions have the best sound. With a new epilogue, analysis of newly discovered performances discussed in no other book, previously unpublished photographs, as well as an essay on Callas by playwright Terrence McNally written especially for this compact disc edition, the Callas Legacy remains, as Beverly Sills says, the only book on the soprano "completely worthy of her artistry."--Back cover
