Tchaikovsky by Roland John Wiley( Book )
11 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 674 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A giant in the pantheon of 19th century composers, Tchaikovsky continues to enthrall audiences today. From the Nutcracker - arguably the most popular ballet currently on the boards - Swan Lake, and Sleeping Beauty, to Eugene Onegin and Pique Dame, to the Symphony Pathetique and the always rousing, canon-blasting 1812 Overture - this prolific and beloved composer's works are perennial favorites. Now, John Wiley, a renowned Tchaikovsky scholar, provides a fresh biography aimed in classic Master Musicians style at the student and music lover. Wiley deftly draws on documents from imperial, Soviet, and post-Soviet era sources, providing a more balanced look at recent controversies surrounding the marriage, death, and sexuality of the composer. The author dovetails the biographical material with separate chapters that treat the music thoroughly and fully, work-by-work, with more substantial explorations of Tchaikovsky's most familiar compositions. These analyses present new, even iconoclastic perspectives on the music and the composer's intent and expression. Several informative appendices, in the Master Musicians format, include an exhaustive list of works and bibliography."--Jacket
The life and ballets of Lev Ivanov : choreographer of The nutcracker and Swan lake by Roland John Wiley( Book )
10 editions published between 1997 and 2007 in English and held by 512 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Life and Ballets of Lev Ivanov is the first book-length study in any language of this Russian artist - Marius Petipa's colleague and Tchaikovsky's collaborator - who is widely celebrated yet virtually unknown. It follows Ivanov from his infancy in a St Petersburg foundling home, through his training in the Imperial Theatre School and his celebrity marriage, to a career as a dancer, regisseur, and choreographer in the St Petersburg Imperial Ballet. Ivanov's artistic world is described, as is his legacy - some dozen works, including Swan Lake, The Nutcracker, and the famous dances from Prince Igor - which inspired Mikhail Fokine in the next generation
