Gustav Mahler : the symphonies by Constantin Floros( Book )

14 editions published between 1993 and 2000 in English and held by 725 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 printers' proofs. These references take the form of programmatic titles, cues, and mottos, and include literary allusions, outcries of grief, and other emotional expressions; they demonstrate that his symphonies cannot be classified as absolute music but rather as music with personal, biographical, literary, and philosophical meanings. With this thesis in mind, Constantin Floros undertakes a precise and detailed exploration of each of Mahler's ten symphonies and Das Lied von der Erde, bringing to light for the first time various aspects of the works. Professor Floros examines their history and autobiographical origins and discusses the events that profoundly influenced the composer's symphonic writing. For example, Mahler's meeting with Alma Schindler (later to become Alma Mahler) in November 1901 and the tragic events of 1907 - the death of the composer's older daughter and the diagnosis of his heart trouble - profoundly changed Mahler's attitude toward life and subsequently his music. The compositional techniques employed by Mahler in each symphony are analyzed and related to stylistic and semantic aspects to decode the composer's symbolic musical language. The author is thus able to identify certain basic qualities of these works: tragic irony, the sense of the grotesque, and the affirmation of Mahler's belief both in life after death and in the power of love to transcend death. Understanding this language leads to a more profound understanding of Mahler the symphonist. Gustav Mahler: The Symphonies is the third book in Professor Floros' monumental study of Mahler, his spiritual world, and his position in relation to nineteenth-century symphonic writing in general.

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 719 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."--BOOK JACKET

Flamenco : gypsy dance and music from Andalusia( Book )

8 editions published between 1990 and 2000 in English and held by 663 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 532 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?
Papageno : Emanuel Schikaneder, man of the theater in Mozart's time by Kurt Honolka( Book )

7 editions published between 1984 and 1990 in English and held by 520 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
