Isaac Albéniz : portrait of a romantic by Walter Aaron Clark( Book )

39 editions published between 1932 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 889 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Walter Aaron Clark here presents, for the first time in English, a detailed and accurate account of one of the most intriguing musicians of the late-Romantic period. Isaac Albeniz (1860-1909), a renowned concert pianist, created a national style of composition in such celebrated piano collections as the Suite espanola, Cantos de Espana, and Iberia. He also fostered the development of Spanish nationalism in the concerto, orchestral music, and opera. He was thus the first composer to put into successful practice the nationalist precepts of his mentor Felip Pedrell. Moreover, he incorporated contemporary French and German trends into his Spanish style in order, as he put it, 'to create Spanish music with a universal accent'. In so doing he pointed the way for Falla, Turina, and Rodrigo, the dominant figures of twentieth-century Spanish composition
Enrique Granados : poet of the piano by Walter Aaron Clark( Book )

28 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 500 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Enrique Granados (1867-1916) is one of the most compelling figures of the late Romantic period in music. During his return voyage to Spain after the premiere of his opera Goyescas at New York's Metropolitan Opera in 1916, a German submarine torpedoed the ship on which he and his wife were sailing, and they perished in the waters of the English Channel. His death was mourned on both sides of the Atlantic as a stunning loss to the music world, for he had died at the pinnacle of his career, and his late works held the promise of greater things to come." "Granados was among the leading pianists of his time, and his eloquence at the keyboard inspired critics to dub him the "poet of the piano." In Enrique Granados: Poet of the Piano, Walter Aaron Clark offers the first substantive study in English of this virtuoso pianist, composer, and music pedagogue. While providing detailed analyses of his major works for voice, piano, and the stage, Clark argues that Granados's art represented a unifying presence on the cultural landscape of Spain during a period of imperial decline, political unrest, and economic transformation. Drawing on newly discovered documents, Clark explores the cultural spheres in which Granados moved, particularly of Castile and Catalonia. Granados's best-known music was inspired by the art of Francisco Goya, especially the Goyescas suite for solo piano that became the basis for the opera. These pieces evoked the colorful and dramatic world that Goya inhabited and depicted in his art. Granados's fascination with Goya's Madrid set him apart from fellow nationalists Albeniz and Falla, who drew their principal inspiration from Andalusia. Though he was resolutely apolitical, Granados's attraction to Castile antagonized some Catalan nationalists, who resented Castilian domination. Yet, Granados also made important contributions to Catalan musical theater and was a prominent figure in the modernist movement in Barcelona." "Clark also explores the personal pressures that shaped Granados's music. His passionate affair with a wealthy socialite created domestic tensions, but it was also a source of inspiration for Goyescas. Persistent financial difficulties forced him to devote time to teaching at the expense of composition, though as a result Granados made considerable contributions to piano pedagogy and music education in Barcelona through the music academy he founded there."--Jacket

Under the stars and bars, or, Memories of four years' service with the Oglethorpes, of Augusta, Georgia by Walter Aaron Clark( Book )

7 editions published between 1900 and 2012 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On a winter's day in '51, in the old Capital at Milledgeville, Ga., Howell Cobb, then Governor of Georgia, gave his official sanction to an Act of the General Assembly incorporating a new military organization in the City of Augusta. If he had been told that ten years from that date he would be wearing the wreath of a Brigadier General in actual war and that the Company, to which his signature had given legal existence would be camped on Virginia soil, attached to the command of an officer, who will go down into history as one of the greatest captains of the ages, he would have smiled at the statement as the outgrowth of a distempered fancy. And yet such a prophecy would have found literal fulfilment. In honor of the founder of the Georgia Colony the Company was named the Oglethorpe Infantry. Hon. Andrew J. Miller, was its first commander
