Centre and periphery, roots and exile : interpreting the music of István Anhalt, György Kurtág, and Sándor Veress by Friedemann Sallis( )

12 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 1,105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines the impact place and displacement can have on the composition and interpretation of Western art music, using as its primary objects of study the work of István Anhalt (1919–2012) György Kurtág (1926–) and Sándor Veress (1907–92). Although all three composers are of Hungarian origin, their careers followed radically different paths. Whereas, Kurtág remained in Budapest for most of his career, Anhalt and Veress left: the former in 1946 and immigrated to Canada and the latter in 1948 and settled in Switzerland. All three composers have had an extraordinary impact in the cultural environments within which their work took place. In the first section, “Place and Displacement,” contributors examine what happens when composers and their music migrate in the culturally complex world of the late twentieth century. The past one hundred years produced record numbers of refugees, and this fact is now beginning to resonate in the study of music. As Anhalt himself forcefully asserts, however, not all composers who emigrate should be understood as exiles. The first chapters of this book explore some of the problems and questions surrounding this issue. Essays in the second section, “Perspectives on Reception, Analysis, and Interpretation,” look at how performing acts of interpretation on music implies bringing the time, place, and identity of the musician, the analyst, and the teacher to bear on the object of study. Like Kodály, Kurtág considers his work to be “naturally” embedded in Hungarian culture, but he is also a quintessentially European artist. Much of his production—he is one of the twentieth century’s most prolific composers of vocal music—involves the setting of Hungarian texts, but in the late 1970s his cultural horizons expanded to include texts in Russian, German, French, English, and ancient Greek. The book explores how musicologists’ divergent cultural perspectives impinge on the interpretation of this work. The final section, “The Presence of the Past and Memory in Contemporary Music,” examines the impact time and memory can have on notions of place and identity in music. All living art taps into the personal and collective past in one way or another. The final four chapters look at various aspects of this relationship
A handbook to twentieth-century musical sketches( Book )

15 editions published between 2004 and 2012 in English and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This handbook explains how scholars and students should work with and think about the composer's working manuscripts. This book surveys the knowledge necessary to work efficiently in archives and libraries housing this material and deals with the skills and techniques specifically related to sketch studies: transcription, reconstructing sketchbooks, deciphering handwriting, dating documents. It deals with the music of important twentieth-century composers and presents visual examples of manuscripts from the collections of world-renowned institutions such as the Paul Sacher Foundation. The book aims to make the work of both researchers and students more efficient and rewarding."--Jacket
Music sketches by Friedemann Sallis( Book )

11 editions published in 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The term 'music sketch' relates to the vast variety of documents that are used by composers to work out a musical technique or idea and to prepare their work for performance or publication. These documents can often provide crucial insights into authorship, biography, editorial practice and musical analysis. This Introduction provides students and scholars with the knowledge and skills they need to embark on research projects involving the study of composers' working documents. Presenting examples of the compositional process over a 400-year period, it includes a selection of detailed case studies on how sketches were created and the techniques that were used, such as transcription and the sorting of loose leaves. Numerous illustrations of manuscripts and autographs, many of which have never been published before, show how these vital documents can be used to better understand the compositional processes of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries [Publisher description]

Live-electronic music : composition, performance, study by Ian Burleigh( Book )

11 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the twentieth century, electronic technology enabled the explosive development of new tools for the production, performance, dissemination and conservation of music. The era of the mechanical reproduction of music has, rather ironically, opened up new perspectives, which have contributed to the revitalisation of the performer’s role and the concept of music as performance. This book examines questions related to music that cannot be set in conventional notation, reporting and reflecting on current research and creative practice primarily in live electronic music. It studies compositions for which the musical text is problematic, that is, non-existent, incomplete, insufficiently precise or transmitted in a nontraditional format. Thus, at the core of this project is an absence. The objects of study lack a reliably precise graphical representation of the work as the composer or the composer/performer conceived or imagined it. How do we compose, perform and study music that cannot be set in conventional notation? The authors of this book examine this problem from the complementary perspectives of the composer, the performer, the musical assistant, the audio engineer, the computer scientist and the musicologist

Utopische Visionen und visionäre Kunst : Beethovens "Geistiges Reich" revisited = Utopian visions and visionary art : Beethoven's "Empire of the mind"--revisited by William Kinderman( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book explores cultural and political conditions in the wake of French Revolution and Napoleonic upheavels, reassessing the impact of aesthetic currents linked to Kant, Goethe, and Schiller among others on artworks of the early nineteenth century and beyond, and particulary on Beethoven's music. Fresh research on Beethoven's manuscripts has illuminated his working methods and aesthetic priorities. the composer's wide-ranging interest in mythology, non-linear temporality and philosophical notions of the unlimited invites attention. Beethoven's commitment to Schillerian idealism and the aesthetics of the sublime stands in contrast to his disenchantment with the politics of absolutism and the repressive Metterich regime in Vienna."--Page 7

Musicians’ Correspondence and Interaction Between Archives: Remarks from a Canadian Perspective by Friedemann Sallis( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In spite of its vast geography, or perhaps because of it, Canadian archivists have established inter institutional networks of exchange, leading in the early 1990s to the codification of best practices of arrangement and description, and in turn enabled the creation of a coherent system of metadata exchange. The internationally recognised Canadian Rules for Archival Description (RAD) is based on the principle of respect of the integrity of fonds. [...]
