Musical Canada : words and music honouring Helmut Kallmann by John Beckwith( Book )

10 editions published between 1987 and 2016 in English and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The foremost historian of Canadian music and musical life, Helmut Kallmann is the inspiration for this volume. Its twenty-three contributions, written by prominent composers and writers representing many different regions and both national languages, present a cross-section of current work in historical research, bibliography, analysis, criticism, and creative composition. Among the subjects covered are bibliographical and historian research on recent musical findings from New France and on early musical activities in various Canadian cities and regions; critical appraisals of Canadian composers and performers; and surveys of Canadian musical organizations and their programs. Four short compositions have been written especially for the volume. The title is drawn from two early Canadian musical periodicals, the English-language Musical Canada and the French-language Le Canada musical. As those journals did for their time, so this volume provides a contemporary overview of Canadian music and music scholarship

Taking a stand : essays in honour of John Beckwith by Timothy J McGee( Book )

Weinzweig : essays on his life and music by Brian Cherney( Book )

10 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This first comprehensive study of Weinzweig since his death consists of new essays by composers, theorists, and musicologists. It deals with biographical aspects (the social context of early twentieth century Toronto, his activism, his teaching, his early scores for CBC Radio dramas), analyzes his compositional processes and his output (his approach to serialism, his instrumental practice, the presence of jazz elements, the vocal works, the divertimenti), and examines various evaluations of his music (his own and those of critics and scholars, listeners and performers). The essays are framed by the co editors' portrait/assessment of Weinzweig and a brief personal memoir. Much of the content draws on new research the Weinzweig Fonds at Library and Archives Canada

Mapping Canada's music by Helmut Kallmann( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mapping Canada s Music is a selection of writings by the late Canadian music librarian and historian Helmut Kallmann (1922 C2012). Most of the essays deal with aspects of Canadian music, but some are also autobiographical, including one written during retirement in which Kallmann recalls growing up in a middle-class Jewish family in 1930s Berlin under the spectre of Nazism. Of the seventeen selected writings by Kallmann, five have never before been published; many of the others are from difficult-to-locate sources. They include critical and research essays, reports, reflections, and memoirs. Each chapter is prefaced with an introduction by the editors. Two initial chapters offer a biography of Kallmann and an assessment of his contributions to Canadian music. The variety, breadth, and scope of these writings confirm Kallmann s pioneering role in Canadian music research and the importance of his legacy to the cultural life of his adopted country. In the current climate of cuts to archival collections and services, the publication of these essays by and about a pre-eminent collector and historian serves as a timely reminder of the importance of cultural memory
