Jean Sibelius and his world by Daniel M Grimley ( )
10 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,054 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Perhaps no twentieth-century composer has provoked a more varied reaction among the music-loving public than Jean Sibelius (1865-1957). Originally hailed as a new Beethoven by much of the Anglo-Saxon world, he was also widely disparaged by critics more receptive to newer trends in music. At the height of his popular appeal, he was revered as the embodiment of Finnish nationalism and the apostle of a new musical naturalism. Yet he seemingly chose that moment to stop composing altogether, despite living for three more decades. Providing wide cultural contexts, contesting received ideas about modernism, and interrogating notions of landscape and nature, Jean Sibelius and His World sheds new light on the critical position occupied by Sibelius and in the Western musical tradition. The essays in the book explore such varied themes as the impact of Russian musical traditions on Sibelius, his compositional process, Sibelius and the theater, his understanding of music as a fluid and improved creation, his critical reception in Great Britain and America, his "late style" in the incidental music for The Tempest, and the parallel contemporary careers of Sibelius and Richard Strauss. Documents include the draft of Sibelius's 1896 lecture on folk music; selections from a roman à clef about his student circle in Berlin at the turn of the century; Theodor Adorno's brief but controversial tirade against the composer; and the newspaper debates about the Sibelius monument unveiled in Helsinki a decade after the composer's death

Grieg : music, landscape and Norwegian identity by Daniel M Grimley ( Book )
9 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Grieg's music is examined in its relation to landscape and national identity. Grimley demonstrates how competing musical discourses contribute to a body of work more challenging and complex than their popular appeal might suggest
Carl Nielsen and the idea of modernism by Daniel M Grimley ( Book )
11 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Carl Nielsen (1865-1931) is one of the most playful, life-affirming and awkward voices in twentieth-century music. His work resists easy stylistic categorisation or containment, yet its melodic richness and harmonic vitality are immediately appealing and engaging. Nielsen's symphonies, concertos and operas are an increasingly prominent feature of the international repertoire, and his songs remain perennially popular at home in Denmark. But his work has only rarely attracted sustained critical attention within the scholarly community; he remains arguably the most underrated composer of his international generation. This book offers a critical re-evaluation of Carl Nielsen's music and his rich literary and artistic contexts. Drawing extensively on contemporary writing and criticism, as well as the research of the newly completed Carl Nielsen Edition, the book presents a series of case studies centred on key works in Carl Nielsen's output, particularly his comic opera Maskarade, the Third Symphony (Sinfonia Espansiva), and his final symphony, the Sinfonia Semplice. Topics covered include his relationship with symbolism and fin-de-siècle decadence, vitalism, counterpoint, and the Danish landscape. Running throughout the book is a critical engagement with the idea of musical modernism--a term which, for Nielsen, was fraught with anxiety and yet provided a constant creative stimulus [Publisher description]
