Rhythmic alteration in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century music : notes inégales and overdotting by Stephen E Hefling( Book )

9 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The problems of rhythmic alteration are among the most controversial issues facing today's historically oriented performers of Baroque music. Hitherto, anyone seeking to understand the French practice of notes inegales and the related concept of overdotting had to absorb an unwieldy and frequently polemical literature of essays. Now, for the first time, Stephen E. Hefling's Rhythmic Alteration in Seventeenth- and Eighteenth-Century Music provides a comprehensive compendium of what is known about notes inegales and overdotting, including tables and summaries that make pertinent historical evidence readily accessible to performers and scholars alike. The volume concludes with a concise overview of problems and choices faced by performers
Mahler, Das Lied von der Erde = (The song of the earth) by Stephen E Hefling( Book )

6 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 528 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since its premiere Mahler's Das Lied von der Erde (The Song of the Earth) has been widely regarded as his finest masterpiece - "the most Mahleresque of his works," according to his friend and disciple, the conductor Bruno Walter. And as Mahler himself wrote to Walter when the draft score was finished. "I believe it is the most personal thing I have yet created." Das Lied was written in the wake of three catastrophic events that shook the foundations of Mahler's life in 1907 and, like all his earlier works, it is deeply influenced by the composer's personal and philosophical worldview. The opening chapter, "Background: Mahler's symphonic worlds before 1908," sets the stage for a study of the work's genesis, a summary of the most important critiques of the premiere, and a careful reading of this six-movement symphony for voices and orchestra. An appendix provides an interlinear translation that makes Mahler's superb treatment of texts accessible to readers with little or no knowledge of German."--BOOK JACKET

Everywhere and forever : Mahler's Song of the earth( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Everywhere and Forever explores the biographic, cultural, and philosophical contexts that led to the creation of Das Lied von der Erde, a composition often considered to be Mahler's most intimate masterpiece. This documentary by Jason Starr presents series of poetry readings, interviews with renowned experts, and extracts from an extraordinary concert given by Thomas Hampson, Paul Groves, and the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande under the direction of Neeme Järvi. During the summer of 1907, the composer Gustave Mahler experienced two life-altering tragedies: his 5 year-old daughter died of scarlet fever and the doctor diagnosed Mahler with a congenital heart defect. Gathering his courage and letting his genius lead the way, Mahler harnessed his despair to power the creation of a masterpiece. He would produce something completely new: a "symphony for tenor, alto, or baritone, and large orchestra" inspired by an ancient Chinese text: Song of the Earth
