Haydn by David Wyn Jones( Book )

30 editions published between 2002 and 2017 in English and held by 815 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."--Jacket
The life of Beethoven by David Wyn Jones( Book )

21 editions published between 1998 and 2004 in English and Chinese and held by 780 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."--Jacket

"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

Studies in music history : presented to H.C. Robbins Landon on his seventieth birthday( Book )

6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Music in eighteenth-century Britain by David Wyn Jones( Book )

18 editions published between 2000 and 2017 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of essays by some of the leading scholars in the field looks at various aspects of musical life in eighteenth-century Britain. The significant roles played by institutions such as the Freemasons and foreign embassy chapels in promoting music making and introducing foreign styles to English music are examined, as well as the influence exerted by individuals, both foreign and British. The book covers the spectrum of British music, both sacred and secular, and both cosmopolitan and provincial. In doing so it helps to redress the picture of eighteenth-century British music which has previously portrayed Handel and London as its primary constituents."--Provided by publisher
Music in Vienna 1700, 1800, 1900 by David Wyn Jones( Book )

14 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The image of Vienna as musical city is a familiar one. Vienna has long been associated with many of the most significant composers in Western music - from Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert, through the Strauss family, Brahms, Bruckner and Wolf, to Mahler, Lehar, Schoenberg and Webern. Today, venerable institutions like the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, the Staatsoper and the Vienna Boys' Choir, together with the shared pride of residents and visitors in its musical inheritance, ensure that the image of a musical city is undimmed. This book explores the history of music in Vienna, focussing on three different epochs, 1700, 1800 and 1900, an approach which allows the very different relationships between music and society that existed in each of these periods to be distinguished. Patronage, social function and audience are key considerations, set within wider political and cultural developments. The volume is populated by emperors, princes, performers, publishers and writers as well as composers, and deals with institutional and commercial characteristics alongside representative individual works. 'Music in Vienna' focusses on the political and social role of music, broadening our understanding of the city as a musical capital. It will appeal to a wide readership, including music historians and political, cultural and social historians, as well as the interested general reader
The land of opportunity : Joseph Haydn and Britain( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On more than one occasion the great composer Joseph Haydn remarked that 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

Practical SPECT/CT in nuclear medicine by David Wyn Jones( Book )

10 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 19 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
