Musik als Klangrede : Wege zu einem neuen Musikverständnis : Essays und Vorträge by Nikolaus Harnoncourt( Book )

9 editions published between 1984 and 2014 in French and German and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wenn Nikolaus Harnoncourt seine Sammlung von Aufsätzen, Vorträgen und Vorlesungen "Musik als Klangrede" nennt, bekennt er sich damit zur Wiedergewinnung beredten Musizierens, für das er selbst mit seinem Ensemble "Concentus musicus" seit 1953 wegbereitend gewirkt hat. Harnoncourt geht mit dem gegenwärtigen Musikleben streng ins Gericht: Es erscheint ihm als ein aufwendiges Ornament, um über die kulturelle Leere des Lebens hinwegzutäuschen. Dem stellt er die Rückbesinnung auf ein verstehendes Hören entgegen, mit dem Interpreten und Hörer gemeinsam versuchen, sich die vielen Sprachen und Stile der Musik vergangener Jahrhunderte wieder zugänglich zu machen. Doch er verordnet nicht etwa den nostalgischen Rückblick auf "originales" Barockspiel mit "historischen" Instrumenten: Hier ist Harnoncourt oft missverstanden worden. Vielmehr setzt er sich mit der Alten Musik, ihrer Spielweise und ihren Instrumenten auseinander, um Impulse für die heutige Musikpraxis zu gewinnen. Nikolaus Harnoncourt erläutert in diesem Buch die Grundprinzipien seiner musikalischen Praxis, die ihn in der gesamten Musikwelt berühmt gemacht haben. Dabei geht es ihm nicht um die museale Interpretation Alter Musik, sondern um eine moderne Interpretation der Meisterwerke der Vergangenheit, deren Impulse unsere Hörgewohnheiten auf neue Fundamente stellen.

Esprit de corps : the art of the Parisian avant-garde and the First World War, 1914-1925 by Kenneth E Silver( Book )

4 editions published in 1991 in French and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Analyzing the all-encompassing changes in modern art between the outbreak of World War I and the Paris Exposition des Arts Décoratifs of 1925, Kenneth Silver's study demonstrates how deeply involved the members of the Parisian avant-garde were in French society and its dominant values and relationships. The book examines a crucial episode in the story of modern art, and delineates the many ways in which art is interwoven with politics and propaganda, with fashion and cultural mythology, and with public policy and personal ambition. The author reinterprets some of the masterpieces of modern art--from Matisse and Picasso to Léger and Le Corbusier--and shows how their creators refer, consciously or not, to the cataclysms of the Great War and its aftermath

The story of art by E. H Gombrich( Book )

3 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in French and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Story of Art is one of the most famous and popular books on art ever published. For 45 years it has remained unrivalled as an introduction to the whole subject, from the earliest cave paintings to the experimental art of today. Readers of all ages and backgrounds throughout the world have found in Professor Gombrich a true master, who combines knowledge and wisdom with a unique gift for communicating directly his own deep love of the works of art he describes." "The Story of Art owes its lasting popularity to the directness and simplicity of the writing, and also the author's skill in presenting a clear narrative. He describes his aim as 'to bring some intelligible order into the wealth of names, periods and styles which crowd the pages of more ambitious works', and using his insight into the psychology of the visual arts, he makes us see the history of art as 'a continuous weaving and changing of traditions in which each work refers to the past and points to the future', 'a living chain that still links our own time with the Pyramid age'. In its new format, the 16th edition of this classic work is set to continue its triumphant progress for future generations and to remain the first choice for all newcomers to art."--Jacket
