The Amadeus book of the violin : construction, history, and music by Walter Kolneder( Book )

11 editions published between 1998 and 2003 in English and held by 1,372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in 1972, Walter Kolneder's Das Buch der Violine quickly established itself as the standard work on the violin, dealing with every aspect of the instrument in truly encyclopedic fashion. This first English-language translation, by eminent scholar and educator Reinhard G. Pauly, is based on the fifth German edition, published in 1993." "Ours is more than a translation, however. Dr. Pauly also took the opportunity to revise the text, for American and English readers particularly, and has included information on recent developments not available to the author." "The book begins with an examination of the violin's construction and history. Part One offers fascinating detail on woods, glues, varnishes, shapes and dimensions, and bows and strings; Part Two traces the evolution of the instrument's form, from the violin's pre-history through the five centuries, roughly, that have elapsed since it took its present shape." "Part Three is a chronological survey of the violin's musical aspects, treating performance techniques, pedagogical philosophy, and literature for the violin. Kolneder examines the various national schools for their distinguishing characteristics and shows the influence of composers (Bach and Beethoven, among others), virtuosos (Paganini, Kreisler), and teachers (including Tartini and Geminiani) upon the development of the modern violin and its music." "Together the three parts form the best single volume on the violin and its music, an extraordinary encyclopedic resource for the general music-lover as well as for violinists."--Jacket
Gustav Mahler : the symphonies by Constantin Floros( Book )

17 editions published between 1993 and 2000 in English and held by 1,243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gustav Mahler thought of his symphonic writing as being based on personal experience, as autobiographical, and as an expression of his philosophy of life. Thus his symphonies deal with profound existential questions and with programmatic ideas that the composer was at first willing to reveal but later preferred to keep to himself. Important references to musical meaning in Mahler's symphonies can be found in numerous sources - sketches, drafts, autograph scores, and
Arthur Honegger by Harry Halbreich( )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1,239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arthur Honegger (1892-1955) is a major composer of the twentieth century. He first came to the attention of the musical public, along with Poulenc and Milhaud, as a member of Les Six and attained a certain notoriety with his composition Pacific 2.3.1., a musical representation of a steam locomotive. Although he earned popular acclaim with his oratorio King David (Le Roi David) early in his career, he was never concerned with musical fashion, and in his later years his musical language - serious, well crafted, consistently tonal - was considered outmoded

Irvine's writing about music by Demar Irvine( )

5 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 1,138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This Handbook, thoroughly Revised and Enlarged by Mark A. Radice from its Classic Predecessors by Demar Irvine, has been designed primarily as a guide for students writing papers or theses on musical subjects - but it is useful for anyone writing for publication about music. As well as dealing with the requirements of scholarly writing, from citation and documentation to the mechanics of punctuation and abbreviation, it also addresses the specific circumstances that arise in writing about music, such as the use of musical examples to supplement prose text. Above all, it is a sensible guide to good writing, presenting concrete suggestions for more effective communication of ideas."--Publisher's description

Papageno : Emanuel Schikaneder, man of the theater in Mozart's time by Kurt Honolka( )

8 editions published between 1984 and 1990 in English and held by 1,007 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Emanuel Schikaneder (1751-1812) is well known to opera lovers as the librettist of Mozart's The Magic Flute, and it was this collaboration that brought him a measure of immortality. Yet he was the most important theater director of his time, an actor, singer, producer, the founder of the famous Theater an der Wien, and a prolific dramatist. His works include magic farces, realistic popular plays, even precursors of surrealist drama. He was a fascinating personality who led a life full of adventure: he lived in a castle at the height of his powers, but died in misery and madness in a tiny room in Vienna. This compelling story of Schikaneder's life also sheds light on the historical, sociological, and theatrical developments of his time."--Jacket

Flamenco : gypsy dance and music from Andalusia( Book )

12 editions published between 1990 and 2000 in English and held by 890 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Virtually every music lover has had at least a nodding acquaintance with that proud, soulful, stirring form of folk music and dance created by the gypsies of the Andalusian region of Spain in the 19th century. Unhappily, by virtue of its very accessibility it has been turned into theatrical spectacle by promoters more concerned with personal gain than musical authenticity. This book, written by a group of dedicated flamenco enthusiasts, has as its objective not only to trace accurately the history and development of the flamenco art but also to identify and describe the character and meaning of the words, music, and dance in an effort to retrieve and restore its authenticity. In addition to tracing the history of flamenco through the lives of its great performers, it delineates the enormous influence flamenco has had on late 19th- and 20th-century composers of concert music, particularly in France and Spain: Ravel, de Falla, and others. In addition it serves as a guide both to where genuine flamenco music may be heard and to the performers who maintain the integrity of the tradition.--Adapted from book jacket

French music from the Enlightenment to romanticism : 1789-1830 by Jean Mongrédien( Book )

5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 530 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first book to focus exclusively on French music history from the late eighteenth century to the early nineteenth century. Painting a full picture of the musical works and genres in vogue at the time - from revolutionary hymns and operas to sacred, symphonic, and instrumental music - the author aims to fill the gap in music history that separates the Age of Enlightenment from romanticism in France. He describes the history of the institutions that supported the growing feverish musical activity, including the musical theaters of Paris, the Conservatoire, the Tuileries Chapel, and various concert societies. Against the background of French criticism of contemporary German music, namely that of Mozart and Beethoven, he evokes the great esthetic debates of the time. His conclusion?
