Oklahoma! the making of an American musical by Tim Carter ( )
8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,683 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Oklahoma!" premiered on Broadway in 1943 under the auspices of the Theatre Guild, and today it is performed more frequently than any other Rodgers and Hammerstein musical. In this book, Tim Carter offers the first fully documented history of the making of this celebrated American musical. Drawing on research from rare theatre archives, manuscripts, journalism, and other sources, Carter records every step in the development of "Oklahoma!". The book is filled with rich and fascinating details about how Rodgers and Hammerstein first came together, the casting process, how Agnes de Mille became the show's choreographer, and the drafts and revisions that ultimately gave the musical its final shape. Carter also shows the lofty aspirations of both the creators and producers and the mythmaking that surrounded "Oklahoma!" from its very inception, and demonstrates just what made it part of its times

Music in late Renaissance & early baroque Italy by Tim Carter ( Book )
11 editions published in 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 572 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book proposes new ways of exploring vocal and instrumental music in northern and central Italy in the sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries. The text focuses on the consolidation of the 'High Renaissance' style of Josquin Desprez and his contemporaries, and the subsequent transformation of this style under the pressure of new aesthetic and functional demands made upon music, and of shifting social, political and cultural circumstances as Italy moved into the period of the Counter-Reformation, and the arts moved through Mannerism into the Baroque. The effects of these changing contexts upon such masters as Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina and Claudio Monteverdi are fully documented here, but this is less a 'great composer' book than a study of secular, sacred and theatrical styles and genres, both within the musical market-place and in relation to music's sister arts. The author also attempts to view music, and indeed all the arts, as essentially political phenomena, conditioned by (but also conditioning) social and cultural constraints. There are copious music examples and an extensive bibliography; considerable space is also devoted to extracts from contemporary documents in translation to allow the reader first-hand experience of one of the most exciting periods in music history

Monteverdi's musical theatre by Tim Carter ( Book )
9 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Claudio Monteverdi (1567-1643) is well known as the composer of the earliest operas still performed today. His Orfeo, Il ritorno d'Ulisse in patria and L'incoronazione di Poppea are internationally popular nearly four centuries after their creation. These seminal works represent only a part of Monteverdi's music for the stage, however. He also wrote numerous works that, while not operas, are no less theatrical in their fusion of music, drama and dance. This book is the first to survey Monteverdi's entire output of music for the theatre - his surviving operas, other dramatic musical compositions and lost works." "Tim Carter, a leading Monteverdi expert, begins by charting the progress of early opera from the north Italian courts to the 'public' theatres of Venice. He places Monteverdi's stage works in the broader context of early seventeenth-century theatrical endeavour and explores crucial questions of genre, interpretation and performance practices, both then and now. Taking a pragmatic view of how the works were brought to life on the stage and how they were seen in their own time, Carter discusses the complex modes of production that involved a range of artists, artisans and performers. With insightful commentary on the composer's individual works and on the cultural and theatrical contexts in which they were performed, Carter casts new light on Monteverdi's remarkable achievement as a man of the theatre."--BOOK JACKET

Con che soavità : studies in Italian opera, song, and dance, 1580-1740 ( Book )
4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Music in 17th and early 18th century Italy was wonderfully rich and varied: in theatrical and secular vocal chamber music alone, we saw the rise of the solo song and cantata, and the birth and growth of opera, all establishing important new structural and expressive paradigms. But this was also a complex time of uncertainty and change, as 'old' and 'new' interacted in subtle and often surprising ways. There is still much to document, explore and explain in terms of composers and repertories and their multi-layered contexts. This collection of essays by European, British and American musicologists seeks to consolidate the recent growth interest in seventeenth century studies. It includes discussions of leading composers (d'India, Monteverdi, Rovetta, Steffani, Albinoni, Vivaldi and Handel), repertories (chamber laments, staged balli and operatic mad-scenes), geographical issues (the arrival of Neapolitan opera in Venice), institutional contexts, and iconography. Inspiration for the book was drawn from the poineering research of Nigel Fortune, to whom the volume is dedicated on his 70th birthday
