Music in Disney's animated features : Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs to The jungle book by James Matthew Bohn( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Music in Disney's Animated Features James Bohn investigates how music functions in Disney animated films and identifies several vanguard techniques used in them. In addition he also presents a history of music in Disney animated films, as well as biographical information on several of the Walt Disney Studios' seminal composers. The popularity and critical acclaim of Disney animated features truly is built as much on music as it is on animation. Beginning with Steamboat Willie and continuing through all of the animated features created under Disney's personal supervision, music was the organizing element of Disney's animation. Songs establish character, aid in narrative, and fashion the backbone of the Studios' movies from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs through The Jungle Book and beyond. Bohn underscores these points while presenting a detailed history of music in Disney's animated films. The book includes research done at the Walt Disney Archives as well as materials gathered from numerous other facilities. In his research of the Studios' notable composers, Bohn includes perspectives from family members, thus lending a personal dimension to his presentation of the magical Studios' musical history. The volume's numerous musical examples demonstrate techniques used throughout the Studios' animated classics [Publisher description]

Practically Poppins in every way : a magical carpetbag of countless wonders by Jeff Kurtti( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ever since 1934, when Mary Poppins descended from the skies over London into Cherry Tree Lane in the beloved book by P. L. Travers, the world has adored the enchanting adventures and peculiar wisdom of this magical nanny. For more than eight decades, Travers's staunch but charming heroine has been beloved in the pages of eight popular books-and in media-from movies to stage, and music to television, all around the world. Now Mary Poppins has come to light up cinema screens again in a magical, musical new incarnation, Mary Poppins Returns. From the Walt Disney Studios, this film is a colorful and charming new story--a sequel to the 1964 classic-featuring an all-star cast and brought to life by a stellar creative team. In Depression-era London, a now-grown Jane and Michael Banks, along with Michael's three children, are visited by the enigmatic Mary Poppins following a personal, grievous loss. She's back just in time. And through her unique magical skills and presence, plus the aid of her friend Jack, Mary helps restore for the troubled family the joy and wonder that's been lost in their lives. Every incarnation of Mary Poppins has had at least one thing in common: she's always arrived out of the blue, though the stay is for an all-too brief period of time-until the wind changes or the chain breaks-whereupon she flies away again for, as Pamela Travers put it, "Apparently . . . nowhere." Practically Poppins In Every Way is a showcase of the varied creative forces that have brought Mary Poppins to life, generation after generation. It is accompanied by erudite and informative text, essays, and observations by creative luminaries such as Cameron Mackintosh, Thomas Schumacher, Gavin Lee, and John Myhre, as well as renowned Disney authorities Brian Sibley, Jim Fanning, Paula Sigman Lowery, Craig D. Barton, and Greg Ehrbar
