Chamber music by Otto Dresel( )

12 editions published between 2009 and 2019 in 4 languages and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume contains two chamber works by the German-American composer Otto Dresel (1826-90): his Piano Trio in A Minor and Piano Quartet in F Major. Both works were composed during his studies with Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy in 1846-47. In contrast to Dresel's lieder, which follow in the steps of Schumann and Robert Franz, these compositions, especially the heroic trio, are worthy successors to Mendelssohn's own chamber music. The quartet, a more intimate essay than the trio, features a charming Intermezzo that became one of Dresel's most popular compositions during his lifetime. Franz Liszt reviewed both pieces and called them "remarkably distinguished works." They are indeed eminently performable, engaging, and tuneful works that enlarge not only the repertory of chamber music from this period, but also the record of the high standard of innovative music making in the United States prior to the Civil War. Both works are published here for the first time." --
Keyboard music by Otto Dresel( )

7 editions published in 2015 in 3 languages and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The German-American composer Otto Dresel (1826-90) was best known in his lifetime as a composer of lieder and for his activity as an outstanding accompanist for singers and chamber ensembles. This volume contains all ten of his original piano works, three pieces for organ, and a representative selection of his arrangements and transcriptions for solo piano (of works by Bach, Beethoven, Schubert, Mendelssohn, and Robert Franz). While the influence of his teachers, Mendelssohn and Schumann, is best appreciated through his songs and chamber works, his piano transcriptions show as well the impact of his early studies with Liszt and open a new window on his role as an important piano teacher and recitalist in mid-nineteenth-century America." --
The lost child : orchestral version by Otto Dresel( )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Lost Child" is a reflective, elegiac concert aria that connects four important figures from three quite separate disciplines--the Swiss-American "natural scientist" Louis Agassiz (1807-73), the American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-82), the German-American composer Otto Dresel (1826-90), and the English diva and composer Clara Kathleen Rogers (1844-1931). Its collaborative creation was initiated by Longfellow, who wrote the poem as a birthday tribute to his friend Agassiz. He recruited Dresel, then regarded as Boston's leading composer and pianist, to set the poem to music, perhaps because Dresel was himself a close friend of Agassiz. Rogers later performed The Lost Child at its premiere-a memorial concert for Agassiz arranged by the Harvard Musical Association-in 1874. Dresel originally set the work for piano and voice, but he later revised it for voice and orchestra. The piano-vocal setting is available in Dresel's Collected Vocal Music (Recent Researches in American Music, vol. 45); this supplement presents the orchestral version for the first time in a modern edition. --
Essays on word/music adaptation and on surveying the field( Book )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The twelve essays presented in this volume are drawn from the Fifth International Conference on Word and Music Studies held at Santa Barbara, CA, in 2005. The conference was organized and sponsored by The International Association for Word and Music Studies (WMA) and in its central section explored the theme of "Word/Music Adaptation". In these wide-ranging papers, a great variety of cases of intermedial transposition between music, literature, drama and film are examined. The music of Berlioz, Biber, Chopin, Carlisle Floyd, Robert Franz, Bernard Herrmann, Liszt, Richard Strauss, Verdi, and pop singer Kate Bush confronts and commingles with the writings of Emily Bronte, Goethe, Nancy Huston, George Sand, and Shakespeare in these cutting-edge adaptation studies. In addition, four films are discussed: Wuthering Heights, Fedora, Otello, and The Notebook. The articles collected will be of interest not only to music and literary scholars, but also to those engaged in the study of adaptation theory, semiotics, literary criticism, narrative theory, art history, feminism or postmodernism."--Jacket
