Arthur Honegger by Harry Halbreich( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1,222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arthur Honegger (1892-1955) is a major composer of the twentieth century. He first came to the attention of the musical public, along with Poulenc and Milhaud, as a member of Les Six and attained a certain notoriety with his composition Pacific 2.3.1., a musical representation of a steam locomotive. Although he earned popular acclaim with his oratorio King David (Le Roi David) early in his career, he was never concerned with musical fashion, and in his later years his musical language - serious, well crafted, consistently tonal - was considered outmoded. This important study considers both Honegger's life and his works. With the cooperation of Honegger's daughter, Pascale Honegger, Harry Halbreich has fully documented the composer's life since childhood; all his works are treated, with many of the more significant ones analyzed in detail. A concluding section attempts to discover, by examining the common threads in his life and music, the true nature of this giant, whose stature is finally being recognized more than forty years after his death
Gustav Mahler : the symphonies by Constantin Floros( Book )

14 editions published between 1993 and 2000 in English and held by 1,202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gustav Mahler thought of his symphonic writing as being based on personal experience, as autobiographical, and as an expression of his philosophy of life. Thus his symphonies deal with profound existential questions and with programmatic ideas that the composer was at first willing to reveal but later preferred to keep to himself. Important references to musical meaning in Mahler's symphonies can be found in numerous sources - sketches, drafts, autograph scores, and

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1,116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This Handbook, thoroughly Revised and Enlarged by Mark A. Radice from its Classic Predecessors by Demar Irvine, has been designed primarily as a guide for students writing papers or theses on musical subjects - but it is useful for anyone writing for publication about music. As well as dealing with the requirements of scholarly writing, from citation and documentation to the mechanics of punctuation and abbreviation, it also addresses the specific circumstances that arise in writing about music, such as the use of musical examples to supplement prose text. Above all, it is a sensible guide to good writing, presenting concrete suggestions for more effective communication of ideas."--Publisher's description

Papageno : Emanuel Schikaneder, man of the theater in Mozart's time by Kurt Honolka( Book )

4 editions published between 1984 and 1990 in English and held by 1,002 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Emanuel Schikaneder (1751-1812) is well known to opera lovers as the librettist of Mozart's The Magic Flute, and it was this collaboration that brought him a measure of immortality. Yet he was the most important theater director of his time, an actor, singer, producer, the founder of the famous Theater an der Wien, and a prolific dramatist. His works include magic farces, realistic popular plays, even precursors of surrealist drama. He was a fascinating personality who led a life full of adventure: he lived in a castle at the height of his powers, but died in misery and madness in a tiny room in Vienna. This compelling story of Schikaneder's life also sheds light on the historical, sociological, and theatrical developments of his time."--Jacket

French music from the Enlightenment to romanticism : 1789-1830 by Jean Mongrédien( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 527 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first book to focus exclusively on French music history from the late eighteenth century to the early nineteenth century. Painting a full picture of the musical works and genres in vogue at the time - from revolutionary hymns and operas to sacred, symphonic, and instrumental music - the author aims to fill the gap in music history that separates the Age of Enlightenment from romanticism in France. He describes the history of the institutions that supported the growing feverish musical activity, including the musical theaters of Paris, the Conservatoire, the Tuileries Chapel, and various concert societies. Against the background of French criticism of contemporary German music, namely that of Mozart and Beethoven, he evokes the great esthetic debates of the time. His conclusion?
Marc-Antoine Charpentier by Catherine Cessac( Book )

4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although Charpentier left little trace of his worldly existence, his music fortunately has been preserved nearly in its entirety. This book is the first comprehensive study of his approximately 550 compositions, including a number of important pieces that remain relatively unknown. A discussion of the composer's theoretical writings, a complete catalog of Charpentier's works, and an extensive bibliography are all given here. While Charpentier's life and personality are still shrouded in mystery, our knowledge about him has nevertheless increased considerably over the past few years, and it will certainly continue to be enriched by new discoveries in the future. His music, for the most part still unknown both on disc and in concert, is waiting for performers to reveal all its facets, and for an ever-growing public finally to discover Charpentier as one of France's most remarkable composers
