Boris Pasternak : a literary biography by Christopher J Barnes( Book )

36 editions published between 1989 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 854 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This authoritative new biography of the Russian poet and prose writer Boris Pasternak is the first part of a two-volume set, covering the period 1890-1928. Drawing on archives and many eyewitness accounts, Barnes' study sheds light on currently unexplored aspects of Pasternak's character and family background, and his artistic, social and historical environment. He combines biographical investigation with detailed textual analysis of translated quotations in verse and prose to reveal the source of Pasternak's extraordinary writings. The book examines a wide range of topics that include his musical enthusiasm and relations with Scriabin, his philosophical studies, his activities in World War I and his response to the 1917 revolutions, and his stance as a liberal artistic intellectual in the 1920s

Targeting the MTA 1s-LM04 Pathway in Hormone Resistance( Book )

4 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The overall goal of this research is to determine the role of LMO4 in breast cancer progression. New insight into these concepts will likely provide new targets and strategies for therapeutic intervention. We have identified estrogen receptor alpha (ER) and its corepressors MTA1 and MTA1s as novel binding partners of LMO4 and have shown that LMO4 is essential to maintain ER transcriptional repression in breast cancer cells. This work was reported in a recent Cancer Research article. Since LMO4 is up regulated in human breast cancers, repression of alpha (ER) transactivation functions by LMO4 might contribute to the process of breast cancer progression by allowing the development of ERa-negative phenotypes and hormone resistance, leading to increased aggressiveness of breast cancer cells

The life and artistry of Maria Olenina-d'Alheim by Alexander Tumanov( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Maria Olenina d'Alheim, the first performer of Russian Lieder, was a pivotal figure in the early 20th century European classical music performance. Maria had the ability to "tell the song," uniting words and music in an art of vocal declamation." "Her personal ties to the "Mighty Handful" of Russian composers - Mussorgsky, Borodin, Cui, Rimsky-Korsakov, and Balakirev - inspired Maria's singing. Her performances of Mussorgsky were the first to bring his music to western Europe." "In 1908, Maria and her husband, music critic and writer Pierre d'Alheim, established the House of Song (Dom pesni in Russia, La Maison du Lied in France). Through her performances, his lectures, their publishing activities and by hosting international competitions, the House of Song influenced the musical climate of Europe." "Through her own words and those of her contemporaries, Balakirev, Cui, Cortot, Conrad, Bely, and Ravel, Alexander Tumanov has recreated this exciting period of classical music in Europe."--Jacket
