Gabriel Fauré : the songs and their poets by Graham Johnson( Book )

8 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in English and held by 442 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The career of Gabriel Fauré as a composer of songs for voice and piano traverses six decades (1862-1921); almost the whole history of French mélodie is contained within these parameters. In the 1860s Fauré, the lifelong protégé of Camille Saint-Saens, was a suavely precocious student; he was part of Pauline Viardot's circle in the 1870s and he nearly married her daughter. Pointed in the direction of symbolist poetry by Robert de Montesquiou in 1886, Fauré was the favoured composer from the early 1890s of Winnarretta Singer, later Princesse de Polignac, and his songs were revered by Marcel Proust. In 1905 he became director of the Paris Conservatoire, and he composed his most profound music in old age. His existence, steadily productive and outwardly imperturbable, was undermined by self-doubt, an unhappy marriage and a tragic loss of hearing. In this detailed study the author places the vocal music within twin contexts: Fauré's own life story, and the parallel lives of his many poets. We encounter such giants as Charles Baudelaire and Paul Verlaine, the patrician Leconte de Lisle, the forgotten Armand Silvestre and the Belgian symbolist Charles Van Lerberghe. The chronological range of the narrative encompasses Fauré's first poet, Victor Hugo, who railed against Napoleon III in the 1850s, and the last, Jean de La Ville de Mirmont, killed in action in the First World War. In this comprehensive and richly illustrated study each of Fauré's 109 songs receives a separate commentary. Additional chapters for the student singer and serious music lover discuss interpretation and performance in both aesthetical and practical terms. Richard Stokes provides parallel English translations of the original French texts. In the twenty-first century musical modernity is evaluated differently from the way it was assessed thirty years ago. Fauré is no longer merely a 'Master of Charms' circumscribed by the belle époque. His status as a great composer of timeless

Seeking the soul : the music of Alfred Schnittke( Book )

5 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Believed by many to be the greatest Russian composer since Shostakovich, Alfred Schnittke (1934-98) spent much of his career in the Soviet Union, and frequently was unable to attend performances of his own works in the West. This collection of scholarly articles is based on a 2001 international conference on Schnittke held at Guildhall School of Music and Drama (GSMD) and includes seven chapters by international musicians, critics, and professors of music. Topics include Schnittke and shadow-sounds, Alfred Schnittke and Gustav Mahler, and Violin Sonata No. 2 as an open commentary on the composition of modern music. The book includes an audio CD containing several performances of the Schnittke's works at GSMD in 2000 and 2001. Ashgate distributes the book.
