To the "new manner" born : a study of Beethoven's early variations by Steven Moore Whiting( )

8 editions published between 1991 and 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1802 Beethoven announced to his publisher that he had adopted a "completely new manner" in his two latest sets of piano variations, in token of which he was numbering them among his "greater" musical opera. Given the aesthetic disrepute into which variations had fallen during the latter eighteenth century, Beethoven's declaration is striking, all the more so because he had taken a novel approach to this fashionable genre nearly from the start. The present study is addressed to the twenty-nine variation sets and movements Beethoven composed by 1800, from the Dressler Variations of 1782 to the Sussmayr Variations of 1799. It argues that he subjected the genre to formal principles rooted in development before leaving Bonn (e.g., WoO 65, WoO 67), that he invested some variations (e.g., WoO 28, WoO 72, WoO 73) with specific dramatic contents by implicit reference to the operas from which the themes were drawn, and that he even shaped certain variation works, mutatis mutandis, along lines analogous to sonata form. The dual thematic configuration that marks Op. 35 was present as early as 1790 (WoO 65). The relation in Op. 34 of successive variations by mediant keys and the closing complex of Adagio and fugue in Op. 35 were clearly prefigured in 1799 (WoO 76). Beethoven was, so to speak, to the "new manner" born
The spirit of Montmartre : cabarets, humor, and the avant-garde, 1875-1905 by Phillip Dennis Cate( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the Chat Noir cabaret (1881-1897) and the Quat'z 'Arts cabaret (1893-1910) as its main focus, and concentrating on individuals who participated in the group activities of the Hydropathes (1878-1881) and the Incoherents (1882-1896), this collection of five essays documents and explores the development of the Montmartre cabaret from 1875 to 1905. Montmartre is revealed as the primary promoter, catalyst, and often, site for the collaboration of artists, writers, composers, and performers in the production of illustrated journals, books, dramatic pieces, music, puppet shows, and the protocinema invention of shadow theater. The contributors reveal the essence of Montmartre's artistic, intellectual environment and analyze its inextricable relations with an important, multidisciplinary body of avant-garde, fin-de-siecle art, literature, and music. The Spirit of Montmartre is the story of Paris's earliest, original, avant-garde groups - an essential part of the cultural context for Impressionist and Post-Impressionist painters and for such important writers and composers as Mallarme, Zola, Huysmans, Debussy and Satie. Relying on Rabelaisian humor, this ephemeral avant-garde group phenomenon anticipates twentieth-century Dada, Surrealism fluxus, and Performance Art. In addition to the editors, the contributors are Olga Anna Dull, Daniel Grojnowski, and Steven Moore Whiting
