French opera : a short history by Vincent Giroud( Book )

"Vincent Giroud looks at the leading composers, from Lully to Messiaen and beyond; at the development of French operatic form and style; at performance, performers and audience; and at the impact of French opera beyond France's borders. Lovers of opera will find this an ideal companion to their appreciation of the form."--Jacket
Picasso and Gertrude Stein by Vincent Giroud( Book )

15 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Portrait of Gertrude Stein was the first major work by Pablo Picasso to enter The Metropolitan Museum of Art, bequeathed by Stein herself in 1946. A century after it was painted, this portrait remains one of the most powerful images of early-20th-century modernism. What was to be a lifelong friendship was but a few months old in the spring of 1906, when Picasso began his portrait of Stein. He was 24 years old at the time and she was 32, and both of their careers were at a critical stage. This engaging book recounts the extraordinary circumstances that led to Stein's first posing session and argues that the portrait played a key role not only in Picasso's work as a painter but also in his subject's creative life, as he became, in turn, the subject of several of Stein's literary portraits

Nicolas Nabokov : a life in freedom and music by Vincent Giroud( Book )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Composer and cultural official Nicolas Nabokov (1903-78) led an unusual life even for a composer who was also a high-level diplomat. Nabokov was for nearly three decades an outstanding and far-sighted player in international cultural exchanges during the Cold War, much admired by some of the most distinguished minds of his century for the range of his interests and the breadth of his vision. Nicolas Nabokov: A Life in Freedom and Music follows Nabokov's life through its fascinating details: a privileged Russian childhood before the Revolution; exile, first to Germany, then to France; the beginnings of a promising musical career, launched under the aegis of Diaghilev and his Ballets Russes with Ode in 1928; his twelve-year American exile during which he occupied several academic positions; his return to Europe after the war to participate in the denazification of Germany; his involvement in anti-Stalinist causes in the first years of the Cold War; his participation in the Congress for Cultural Freedom; his role as cultural adviser to the Mayor of Berlin and director of the Berlin Festival in the early 1960s; the resumption of his American academic and musical career in the late 1960s and 1970s. Nabokov is unique not only in that he was involved on a high level in international cultural politics, but also in that his life intersected at all times with a vast array of people within, and also well beyond, the confines of classical music. Drawing on a vast array of primary sources, Vincent Giroud's first-ever biography of Nabokov will be of interest readers interested in twentieth-century music, Russian music, Russian emigration, and the Cold War, particularly in its cultural aspects. Musicians and musicologists interested in Nabokov as a composer, or in twentieth century Russian composers in general, will find in the book information not available anywhere else

French Baroque music from Beaujoyeulx to Rameau by James R Anthony( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in French and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James R. Anthony's French Baroque Music, originally published in 1974, was the first definitive study of French music of the Baroque era and remains the only comprehensive survey of the vast musical output of 17th and 18th-century France. Completely revised and expanded, this new edition incorporates research of the past two decades and includes a wealth of quotations from early writers on the subject. As in the previous English language editions of 1974 and 1978 (and in the French editions of 1981 and 1992), the book provides an overview of French music of the period. Anthony explores music of the stage and of the altar and includes chapters on music for lute, guitar, and keyboard; instrumental music; and vocal chamber music. A revised author's preface considers the present state of research in the area of French Baroque music. Finally, a new and expanded index and an updated bibliography listing more than 1,300 works make this book a superb resource for scholars as well as laymen
Massenet aujourd'hui : héritage et postérité : actes du colloque de la XIe biennale Massenet des 25 et 26 octobre 2012 by Festival Massenet( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in French and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"L'année 2012 a marqué le centenaire de la mort de Massenet, décédé le 13 août 1912. Plutôt que de revenir sur les étapes de sa carrière ou sur l'évolution de l'opéra français au cours des quelque 45 ans qu'elle a duré, plusieurs chercheurs ont saisi cette occasion pour s'interroger sur la postérité d'une oeuvre dont on peut dire, paradoxalement, qu'elle a suscité des débats - voire parfois un rejet - à la mesure du succès qu'elle avait rencontré du vivant de son auteur. Le présent volume, fruit d'un colloque international qui s'est tenu à l'Opéra Théâtre de Saint-Étienne lors de la XIe biennale Massenet, est donc consacré entièrement à Massenet, mais vu dans la perspective du souvenir qu'il a laissé, notamment à ses élèves; de la nature de son influence sur des compositeurs aussi variés que Debussy, Hahn, Puccini ou Messiaen, sans oublier les musiciens d'aujourd'hui; de la fortune théâtrale de ses ouvrages, tant du point de vue des directeurs de théâtre que de celui des metteurs en scène; enfin de l'histoire de l'interprétation de Massenet depuis un siècle (Georges Thili, Richard Bonynge ou boan Sutherland). Le livre comporte un préambule de Philippe Fénelon et un CD d'enregistrements des premiers interprètes de Massenet, réalisé par Ward Marston. Publié avec le soutien de la région Rhône-Alpes, du Palazzetto Bru Ante - Centre de musique romantique française, de la Société française de musicologie et du ministère de la Culture et de la Communication IDPG-SIAL Mission aux Commémorations nationales. L'Opéra Théâtre de Saint-Étienne est partenaire de l'Université Jean Monnet"--P. [4] of cover
