Symphony in B minor : (Unfinished) : an authoritative score, Schubert's sketches, commentary, essays in history and analysis by Franz Schubert( )

26 editions published between 1968 and 1971 in 3 languages and held by 1,102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Schubert's Symphony in B minor, known as "Unfinished," has been one of the central works of the musical literature for over a century, since its discovery and first performance thirty-seven years after the composer's death. This volume includes the complete musical score of the work, and a stimulating selection of materials illuminating its historical and musical background.For this edition, the musical text that Johannes Brahms prepared for the Schubert Gesamtausgabe has been revised and corrected on the basis of a thorough comparison with Schubert's manuscript. The surviving piano sketches for the symphony, including the incomplete third movement, are for the first time presented in the same volume with the score; the orchestrated fragment of the third movement is also reprinted. The complex history of the symphony and the riddle of its incompleteness are traced in essays referring to original source material, while the editor's detailed analysis and his selection of views and comments (ranging from a review of the first performance up to the present) acquaint the reader with the views of such figures as Wolf, Dvor̆ák, Stravinsky, and Copland. A selective bibliography is also provided. -- from dust jacket

Schubert's dances : for family, friends, and posterity by Martin Chusid( )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Of the several genres comprising Schubert's prodigious compositional output, the one that has attracted the least attention from scholars has been his approximately 500 dances. Of these, more than 200 were published during his lifetime, twice as many as his songs; and they were received enthusiastically by the public. Yet, strangely enough, there has been only one slim volume devoted to the subject and it is in German, Schubert und das Tanzvergnügen (Schubert and the Enjoyment of the Dance). A translation of the opening section of that book forms the Introduction to our volume where it is entitled "Dancing in Vienna in the Early 19th Century." Although the composer's dances have been enjoyed in the United States and England by pianists and their pupils for generations, the current book is the first in English about them. Furthermore, there are relatively few articles or commentaries of substance that treat them seriously. Our publication begins with chapters on the minuets, all of which were written for members of his family, and his ecosaisses, primarily itended for his friends. Later another section is devoted to the polonaises and his other four hand dances, works that Schubert composed mainly for his only serious students, the Countesses Marie and Caroline Esterhazy. But by far the largest portion of the volume is devoted to the quick, triple-meter compositions Schubert labeled German dances or ländler, although his publishers most often gave them the title of Waltzes. The composer, however, used the term Walzer just once in his lifetime; and he did so in the course of a humorous poem to rhyme with the word Pfalzer, an inhabitant of the Rhine region of Germany, at the conclusion of a dance he in fact called a Deutscher (German dance). In the course of studying the dances a number of points insufficientally, or not at all, discussed in the Schubert literature has emerged. For one thing forty, approximatel 8% of these relatively short compositions--most are only 16 or 24 measures in length--begin and end in different keys. This is and aspect of Schubert's fremarkable harmonic imagination also visible in some 75 of his well over 600 songs. Another aspect of interest is that, despite their similarity in meter and tempo, there is a considerable diffence in musical character between the dances Schubert called German dances and those he labeled ländler. A third noteworthy feature of the composer's dances is the manner in which all of his later published dance sets, those which appeared from late 1825 to the end of his life in 1828 are organized tonally. They all begin and end in the same key. And, furthermore, they display close inner relationships as well. In contrast, of his earlier dance sets, those issued from 1821 to early 1825, a single group, the twelve waltzes of Op. 18 (D. 145), is rounded tonally in similar fashion. Finally, of the eminent composers influenced by Schubert, there are three who were particularly fascinated by his dances: Robert Schumann, Franz Liszt, and Johannes Brahms. Their frequently expressed warm admiration for the composer, and especially their deep concern for his dances, are treated in the closing section of this volume, the Epilogue
Verdi's middle period, 1849-1859 : source studies, analysis, and performance practice( Book )

Verdi's "Il trovatore" : the quintessential Italian melodrama by Martin Chusid( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No full-length study has ever been written on Il trovatore, in his day Verdi's most successful stage work. This book by one of the world's great Verdi authorities fills that gap, providing a comprehensive look at the opera, from its genesis and structure to its early performance history and critical reception. Starting with the background of the opera, the volume traces the origins of the original play by Antonio García Gutiérrez, El trovador, and offers a new, more credible source for the drama. In addition, it examines the evolution of the libretto, the music, and the arrangement of the narrative, revealing innovative musical and dramatic features not seen by other critics. The book also includes a discussion of contemporary reviews and a section on some of the important performers in the twentieth century (for example, Toscanini and Caruso), as well as a consideration of several of the more unusual stagings of the work mounted during the final decades of the century. With these and other explorations, Martin Chusid offers a thorough survey of Verdi's Il trovatore and in the process deepens and enhances our encounter with one of the mainstays of the operatic reparatory [Publisher description]
