Gesualdo : the man and his music by Glenn Watkins( Book )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Carlo Gesualdo, Prince of Venosa, is equally celebrated as the composer of madrigals of great power and tortured complexity and as the murderer of his wife and her lover in flagrante delicto. His life and compositions are not unconnected. His neurotic sensibility found an ideal outlet in the mannerist tendencies of late Renaissance music, and his works are the most extreme examples of those tendencies. Watkins's extended study of Gesualdo's life and works was originally published in 1973. Alongside detailed analysis of Gesualdo's remarkable madrigals and of the few works in other genres, it contained much new biographical material, particularly on the latter part of the composer's life. This new edition has been extensively updated, and contains a new chapter covering the research of recent years. The preface to the first edition, by Igor Stravinsky is reprinted

Tussen zieken, boeken en kikkers : de fysiologie van een leven: Izaac van Deen (1804-1869) by Stefan van der Poel( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in Dutch and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Izaac van Deen (1804-1869) was een pionier in de fysiologie en de eerste Joodse hoogleraar in Nederland. In 1851 werd hij als buitengewoon hoogleraar in Groningen aangesteld. Ruim vijftig jaar na de juridische gelijkstelling van Nederlandse Joden betekende dit een doorbraak in het emancipatieproces. De moeizame totstandkoming van deze aanstelling geeft een interessant beeld van het universitaire leven van die dagen. Twee decennia later werd de eerste vrouwelijke student in Groningen toegelaten - Aletta Jacobs, eveneens van Joodse huize. De Groningse universiteit bouwde zo verder aan haar liberale reputatie
