"Music as a great adventure of mind and body: this is what Carlos Prieto gives us in this spirited book."--Carlos Fuentes "Like Rostropovich, Carlos Prieto is a true champion of the cello. A creative artist, scholar, and storyteller, Carlos has been a prolific contributor to the flow of music throughout the western hemisphere, premiering compositions of some of the greatest contemporary composers and helping to nurture and develop an entire generation of Latin America's most talented musicians. I am privileged to know him as a colleague and honored to call him my friend."--Yo-Yo Ma In 1720, Antonio Stradivari crafted an exquisite work of art-a cello known as the Piatti. Over the next three centuries of its life, the Piatti cello left its birthplace of Cremona, Italy, and resided in Spain, Ireland, England, Italy, Germany, and the United States. The Piatti filled sacred spaces, such as the Santa Cueva de Cadiz, with its incomparable voice. It also spent time in more profane places, including New York City bars, where it served as a guarantee for unpaid liquor tabs. The Piatti narrowly escaped Nazi Germany in 1935 and was once even left lying in the street all night. In 1978, the Piatti became the musical soul mate of world-renowned cellist Carlos Prieto, with whom it has given concerts around the world. In this delightful book, Mr. Prieto recounts the adventurous life of his beloved "Cello Prieto," tracing its history through each of its previous owners from Stradivari in 1720 to himself. He then describes his noteworthy experiences of playing the Piatti cello, with which he has premiered some eighty compositions. In this part of their mutual story, Prieto gives a concise summary of his own remarkable career and his relationships with many illustrious personalities, including Igor Stravinsky, Dmitry Shostakovich, Pablo Casals, Mstislav Rostropovich, Yo-Yo Ma, and Gabriel García Marquez. To make the story of his cello complete, Mr. Prieto also provides a brief history of violin making and a succinct review of cello music from Stradivari to the present. He highlights the work of composers from Latin America, Spain, and Portugal, for whose music he has long been an advocate and principal performer. Thus, The Adventures of a Cello offers not only the first biography of a musical instrument but also an inviting overview of cello music and its preeminent composers and performers

Bajo el cielo de México : Gabriel Figueroa, arte y cine by Gabriel Figueroa( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in Spanish and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"No resulta exagerado afirmar que, durante más de medio siglo, la mirada de Gabriel Figueroa ayudó a moldear la educación sentimental de millones de espectadores. Su estilo dejó una marca indeleble en más de doscientas películas, en las que abordó con una maestría pocas veces vista en todos los géneros cinematográficos. Retratista de estudio, fotógrafo publicitario, stillman, iluminador y, principalmente, cinefotógrafo, Figueroa impuso nuevas formas de entender la imagen, una manera particular de trabajar la luz y un universo de claroscuros con los que el cine mexicano erigió un imaginario estético y político sin precedentes. La iconografía que se desprende de su trabajo es tan rica en matices como compleja en interpretaciones. El presente libro ofrece un viaje por la obra de este artista de la luz, al tiempo que lo celebra como una de las figuras imprescindibles en la historia del cine." -- Cubierta
