Johann Sebastian Bach : life and work by Martin Geck( Book )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Johann Sebastian Bach is one of the most compelling figures in classical music.

Notes from Hampstead : the writer's notes, 1954-1971 by Elias Canetti( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Notes from Hampstead is a map to the late Nobel laureate's thinking, a triumphant compendium of aphoristic, enigmatic, and expository writings covering a characteristically diverse range of subjects: the significance of mythology and ethnicity, the nature of creativity, the extraordinary hold violence has on the twentieth century, literary history (one learns of Canetti's affection for Cervantes, Stendhal, and Gogol, and his adoration of Kafka), and, always, there is a fierce quarrel with death
Music in the works of Broch, Mann, and Kafka by John Hargraves( Book )

7 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Following the sudden death of his best friend, the narrator of The Executor is called to Turin to resolve the will and literary estate of this famous writer and professor. It is a considerable undertaking, as Rudolf had amassed not only a rather extensive collection of house pets (a goose, several ducks, tortoises, and a peacock--to say nothing of Caesar, the old dog), but also a voluminous library of books and research materials

Annotation
Hints on landscape gardening by Hermann Pückler-Muskau( Book )

10 editions published in 2014 in English and German and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Park Muskau, Prince Pückler's extraordinary nineteenth-century creation on both sides of the River Neisse, together with Hints on Landscape Gardening (Andeutungen über Landschaftsgärtnerei), his instructive 1834 treatise based on the park's design, are as important to American landscape architects as the work and writings of Frederick Law Olmsted. This thoroughly new and authoritative edition translated by John Hargraves, with an introduction by landscape historian and Pückler authority Linda Parshall, contains the same forty-four images and four maps as the original large-format Atlas accompanying the German text. Published in collaboration with the Foundation for Landscape Studies, the print edition of the book shall be matched by an electronic publication that contains the illustrations in a size corresponding with the original dimensions (approx. 51 x 35 cm) of the Atlas. The page concordance in the margins of the translated text allows for a precise reference to the German original

Peter Zumthor : Buildings and Projects by Peter Zumthor( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Peter Zumthor, Pritzker laureate 2009, unarguably ranks among the most important contemporary architects. He is revered worldwide for the stringency of his architectural concepts, the clarity of his designs, his sensitiveness for location and context, and for his conscious and careful use of materials. He is celebrated for the pure and atmospheric spaces he has created, such as Kunsthaus Bregenz (Bregenz, Austria), Therme Vals (Vals, Switzerland), Kolumba Art Museum (Cologne, Germany), or in 2011 the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion in London, Hortus Conclusus. Yet his lesser known residential buildings in Switzerland or the Field Chapel for Brother Klaus (near Mechernich, Germany) have also won great acclaim from architectural critics. Zumthor is much admired by students and teachers of architecture alike also for his philosophical approach to the task of building and for his writings on architectural thought. The new five-volume set is the first comprehensive monograph on Zumthor's work in more than fifteen years. Around 40 of his buildings and unrealised projects are presented in detail with brief descriptive texts by Zumthor himself, with photographs, sketches, drawings and plans.A complete list of works 1975-2013 rounds out the book. Photographs are contributed by Helene Binet, Hans Danuser and others
