The life of Beethoven by David Wyn Jones ( Book )
9 editions published between 1998 and 2004 in English and held by 761 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Beethoven was an inspired composer but he was also a working musician with sound commercial sense. David Wyn Jones's account of Beethoven the man and composer reveals the life of a creative musician in Bonn and Vienna in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. While paying due regard to the image of Beethoven as one of the most single-minded composers in the history of music, this biography places his work in the context of the musical life of the period. Through an understanding of the changing nature of musical patronage, the private and public concert, the impact of the Napoleonic Wars on culture and society, and the increasing ambition of musical life in the period after the end of the wars, a varied and dynamic picture of Beethoven's musical career emerges."--BOOK JACKET
Haydn by David Wyn Jones ( Book )
16 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 749 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In his lifetime, Joseph Haydn enjoyed huge popularity throughout Europe. As a composer of symphonies, quartets, masses, and oratorios he was readily acknowledged by Mozart, Beethoven, and others as a commanding figure. He is one of the founding fathers of classical music, yet only in the last 50 years have his works become available in reliable editions, and much biographical detail has come to light at the same time. Meanwhile his music is more popular today than it has been at any time since his death. This detailed, scholarly, and lively Companion offers insight into the life, times, and music of one of the great composers of the Classical era."--BOOK JACKET

10 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 540 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"An original study of the history of the symphony in Vienna during Beethoven's lifetime, this book explores the context in which the composer worked. Based on an extensive study of the wider symphonic repertoire of the period and of the characteristics of musical life that shaped the changing fortunes of the genre, from manuscript and printed dissemination to concert life, David Wyn Jones provides a multi-faceted account of the development of the symphony at one of the most crucial periods in its history."--Jacket

Music in eighteenth-century Austria by David Wyn Jones ( Book )
13 editions published between 1996 and 2006 in English and held by 411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The music of Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven forms a cornerstone of the modern repertoire, but very little is known about the context in which these composers worked. This volume of twelve essays by leading international scholars covers some of the musical traditions and practices of this little-understood period of music history. Beginning with the early decades of the eighteenth century, the volume documents selected aspects of musical life and style from the late Baroque period to the early years of the nineteenth century. The four main areas covered in this exploration of new territories in music history are orchestral music, sacred music, opera and keyboard music. Georg Reutter (Haydn's teacher), Antonio Salieri (Mozart's colleague) and Joseph Wolfl (a rival of Beethoven) are only three of the prominent musicians of the period who are discussed at length

On March 6, 1996, H. C. Robbins Landon, one of the world's leading experts on composers of the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, celebrated his seventieth birthday. To mark this event friends and professional colleagues in Europe and the USA have contributed scholarly studies to this commemorative volume. The range of their subject-matter relates closely to the dedicatee's own special interests, and the contributions (some in English, some in German) reflect the esteem in which H. C. Robbins Landon is held internationally
Practical SPECT/CT in nuclear medicine by David Wyn Jones ( )
6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Nuclear Medicine is a diagnostic modality which aims to image and in some cases quantify physiological processes in the body to highlight disease or injury. Within nuclear medicine, over the past few decades, major technological changes have occurred and concomitantly changes in the knowledge and skills required have had to evolve. One of the most significant technological changes has been the fusion of imaging technologies, to create hybrid systems such as SPECT/CT, PET/CT and PET/MR. With these changes in mind, Practical SPECT/CT in Nuclear Medicine provides a handy and informative guide to the purchase, clinical implementation and routine use of a SPECT/CT scanner. Practical SPECT/CT in Nuclear Medicine will be a valuable resource for all personnel working in nuclear medicine and it will be of particular value to trainees

A land of opportunity : Joseph Haydn and Britain by Richard Chesser ( Book )
2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
On more than one occasion the great composer Joseph Haydn remarked taht he became well known in his own country only after he had made two visits to London in the 1790s. Although he was connected with the Esterházy court for over 40 years and his music was performed in many of Europe's major cities, London was to be the only European city, apart from Vienna, to welcome the composer in person. The essays in this volume examine the relationship between the composer and the commercial, political and social world and help explain the unparalleled popularity Hadyn and his music have enjoyed ever since
