Valved brass : the history of an invention by Christian Ahrens( Book )

12 editions published between 1986 and 2008 in German and English and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the history of brass instruments, few developments can rival the early nineteenth-century invention of the valve for enduring significance. Nevertheless, the acceptance of valved brass instruments proved controversial, as newspapers and other documents repeatedly attest. Christian Ahrens (Ruhr-Universität Bochum) in his important monograph, Eine Erfindung und ihre Folgen: Blechblasinstrumente mit Ventilen (1986), devotes considerable attention to this heated controversy, as he traces the early use of valved brass instruments in the realms of art music, military music, and Volksmusik. Stressing social and aesthetic issues over the more familiar mechanical aspects, the author draws on a rich body of journalistic source material to detail a compelling reception history [Publisher description]

Piano culture in 19th-century Paris( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The volume aims to investigate the world of the piano in France, and the evolution of the instrument between the ancien régime and the Restoration. Particular attention will be devoted to the circulation of central European pianists at the turn of the nineteenth century, their influence on the development of piano culture and technique and the impact this had on French musical tastes. Nineteen contributions will explore the piano industry, aspects of performance practice and the bravura tradition, and will investigate certain lines of interaction between publishers, composers, institutions and concert venues between the French Revolution and the first Industrial Revolution. The ultimate aim will be to determine more comprehensively the role of piano culture within nineteenth-century Parisian musical life

"Zu Gotha ist eine gute Kapelle--" : aus dem Innenleben einer thüringischen Hofkapelle des 18. Jahrhunderts by Christian Ahrens( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in German and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Gothaer Hofkapelle galt im 18. Jahrhundert als besonders leistungsfähig, nur die Dresdner Kapelle war ihr in Mitteldeutschland überlegen. In diesem Band wertet der Autor Quellen aus, die bislang in der Musikwissenschaft selten oder gar nicht genutzt wurden: die Korrespondenz der Musiker mit ihren Dienstherren; Ausgabenrechnungen und -belege; Zeitungsanzeigen. Die Dokumente offenbaren, wie das künstlerische Niveau der Kapelle erreicht wurde und welche Rolle dabei die Hautboisten spielten; sie beleuchten das Sozialgefüge der Musiker in den drei höfischen Formationen sowie die Macht- und Fürsorgefunktion der Herzöge. Und sie zeigen, welchen finanziellen Aufwand die Gothaer Regenten für die Musik trieben und wie sich dies im Konkurrenzkampf mit den Kapellen in Sondershausen und Rudolstadt auswirkte
