Mozart, the golden years, 1781-1791 by H. C. Robbins Landon( Book )

49 editions published between 1989 and 2006 in 5 languages and held by 1,784 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The last decade of Mozart's short but amazingly prolific career counts as one of the most remarkable periods - truly golden years—in the history of Western music. Richly illustrated with contemporary paintings and engravings and authoritatively written, this book provides a vivid account of the composer's life in the European music capital, Vienna, from 1781 to 1791. This creative yet turbulent decade witnessed a crescendo of activity. Mozart married Constanze Weber in 1782, and in the ensuing years produced an astonishing wealth of new music, rich in quality as well as quantity. A host of immortal works belong to this period, among them the great trilogy of symphonies (numbers 39, 40, and 41), operatic masterpieces - The Marriage of Figaro, Don Giovanni, Cosi fan tutte, and The Magic Flute - and the Clarinet Concerto of 1791. Through a close examination of Mozart's public successes and failures; his relationship with his father, Leopold; his devotion to his wife, Constanze; his Masonic associations; and his friendship with Franz Joseph Haydn, H. C. Robbins Landon provides an intimate and eminently readable portrait of an extraordinary musical genius
Beethoven : a documentary study by H. C. Robbins Landon( Book )

32 editions published between 1970 and 1975 in 3 languages and held by 1,590 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The two-hundreth anniversary of Beethoven's birth is the occasion for an extensive review of his life and career. In many ways Beethoven epitomizes the conventional view of genius: the lone outsider, the self-absorbed creator and pathfinder, the passionate, heroic, tragic figure ahead of his times. His life spanned one of the most turbulent and decisive periods in European history, and his music formed the bridge between classicism and romanticism. This restless, cantankerous, single-minded and oversensitive man attained his only true fulfilment in his music; even among his contemporaries he was recognized as a blazing genius, too large for life. This book combines illustrations and documents to give a comprehensive and vivid view of Beethoven's background, the world in which he lived, his friends and patrons, musicians, the women he loved, the places he visited. New research has a large number of hitherto unpublished and, in some cases, unknown paintings; other portraits and prints are here published for the first time in colour. The documents include copious extracts from Beethoven's letters and conversation-books, as well as contemporary diaries, letters and newspaper notices; related closely to the illustrations, they provide a commentary on Beethoven's personality and appearance, his piano-playing, conducting and musical ideas. There are also many reproductions of his scores, in autograph and first edition; some of these are new discoveries. As a portrait of a unique man, and as a documentary representation of his times, this book will be of the greatest interest and value to all who love great music."--Publisher's description

Choraline chorus rehearsal CDs are learning tools, not performances, and your vocal line is represented by an orchestral instrument, ensuring maximum clarity for your part while allowing you to hear other voice parts which are usually played by an organ. Additional clarity results from using the right-hand audio channel for your voice part and the left-hand channel for the other parts: adjusting the volume will therefore enable you to increase or decrease the volume of your part relative to the others. Neutral expression and tempi help you avoid bringing to rehearsal a performance style that might conflict with your conductor's aims
