This book was released on 1996 with total page 512 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This volume is a collection based on the Royal Musical Association's Mozart Conference, held at London's South Bank in August 1991. That conference, the largest and most international ever held by the Association, attracted an international group of speakers, and was open to the general public. The 26 papers included here have been substantially revised and extended for publication. They provide a wide panorama of modern Mozart research, exploring aspects of his life and work hitherto obscure, interpreting his instrumental music, and describing the context, in Vienna and Salzburg, in which he lived and worked. Close attention is paid to different aspects of his operas, from Lucio Silla to La clemenza di Tito, with particular stress on the creative processes in the three great Da Ponte operas: Le nozze di Figaro, Don Giovanni, Cosi fan tutte.

Download or read book On Playing the Flute written by Johann Joachim Quantz and published by Faber & Faber. This book was released on 2011-02-17 with total page 72 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Johann Joachim Quantz's On Playing the Flute has long been recognized as one of the primary sources of information about eighteenth-century performance practice. In spite of its title, it is not simply a tutor for the flute, but a fully-fledged programme for training musicians of all types, with detailed information on intonation, ornamentation, dynamics, the 'duties' of the various accompanying performers, including the leader of the orchestra, and the principal forms and styles (French, Italian and German) of the time. Although Quantz is most often identified as the teacher of Frederick the Great, his musical roots were in Dresden, the most brilliant musical establishment in Germany; and his travels and studies in Italy, France and England gave him direct experience of most phases of European musical life in the 1720s and 30s. This reissue of the second edition provides a wonderfully complete and detailed picture of musical taste and performance practice in the 18th century, and includes a new introduction by Professor Reilly, drawing attention to recent research on Quantz. Whether you want to learn to play the flute and be taught by the teacher of Frederick the Great, or just to gain a first-hand insight into the history of classical music, On Playing the Fluteis an essential and entertaining read.

Download or read book Structural Novelty and Tradition in the Early Romantic Piano Concerto written by Stephan D. Lindeman and published by Pendragon Press. This book was released on 1999 with total page 348 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In the early nineteenth century, seven composers experimented with the design of the piano concerto at roughly the same time. Two mature figures - Johann Baptist Cramer and Carl Maria von Weber - and five young firebrands - Felix Mendelssohn, Valentin Alkan, Clara Wieck, Robert Schumann and Franz Liszt - probed the possibilities and challenged the traditions of the genre regarded as problematic, and even anachronistic by the 1830s. Lindeman considers each composer's approach to concerto form in a lucid and engaging account. He then pairs this with an analysis of their concertos, including a combination of LaRue timelines and Schenkerian techniques that is logical and insightful. A different perspective is seen in the reviews of Robert Schumann in his Neue Zeietschrift für Musik. The critic's profound dismay with the state of the noble genre is apparent in his reviews of concertos by the Parisian virtuoisi, which he regarded with particular disdain. Lindeman's overview reveals that Schumann's criticism offers a touchstone for the reformulation of the genre in the experimental works of the seven composers. Lindeman's book includes measure-by-measure timeline analyses of the first movements of over 100 concertos. Included are all those of Mozart, Cramer, Beethoven, Hummel, Weber, Field, Moscheles, Alkan, Chopin, Mendelssohn, Wieck, Schumann, and Liszt, plus examples by Sterndale Bennett, Boiëldieu, Burgmüller, Czerny, Dussek, Ries, and Steibelt. Structural Novelty and Tradition in the Early Romantic Piano Concerto offers the first detailed examination of a critical time in the development of the form. It is an indispensable reference tool for anyone interested in the piano concerto genre.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This guide to Mozart's two most popular piano concertos--the D minor, K. 466, and the C major, K. 467 (the so-called "Elvira Madigan")--presents the historical background of the works, placing them within the context of Mozart's compositional and performance activities at a time when his reputation as both composer and pianist was at its peak. The special nature of the concerto, as both a form and genre, is explored through a selective survey of some of the approaches that various critics have taken in discussing Mozart's concertos. The concluding chapter discusses a wide range of issues of interest to modern performers.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Written by a leading authority and artist of the historical transverse flute, The Notation Is Not the Music offers invaluable insight into the issues of historically informed performance and the parameters—and limitations—of notation-dependent performance. As Barthold Kuijken illustrates, performers of historical music should consider what is written on the page as a mere steppingstone for performance. Only by continual examination and reexamination of the sources to discover original intent can an early music practitioner come close to authentic performance.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: From the New York Times review of the Dallas Opera's performance of Orlando furioso and the international symposium on Baroque opera: ". . . it was a serious, thoughtful, consistent and imaginative realization of a beautiful, long-neglected work, one that fully deserved all the loving attention it received. As such, the production and its attendant symposium made a positive contribution to the cause of Baroque opera . . . . " Baroque opera experienced a revival in the late twentieth century. Its popularity, however, has given rise to a number of perplexing and exciting questions regarding literary sources, librettos, theater design, set design, stage movement, and costumes—even the editing of the operas. In 1980, the Dallas Opera produced the American premier of Vivaldi's Orlando furioso, which met with much acclaim. Concurrently an international symposium on the subject of Baroque opera was held at Southern Methodist University. Authorities from around the world met to discuss the operatic works of Vivaldi, Handel, and other Baroque composers as well as the characteristics of the genre. Michael Collins and Elise Kirk, deputy chair and chair of the symposium, edited the papers to produce this groundbreaking study, which will be of great interest to music scholars and opera lovers throughout the world. Contributors to Opera and Vivaldi include Shirley Wynne, John Walter Hill, Andrew Porter, Eleanor Selfridge-Field, Howard Mayer Brown, William Holmes, Ellen Rosand, and the editors.

Download or read book Becoming Clara Schumann written by Alexander Stefaniak and published by Indiana University Press. This book was released on 2021 with total page 326 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "Well before she married Robert Schumann, Clara Schumann was already an internationally renowned pianist, and she concertized extensively for several decades after her husband's death. Despite being tied professionally to Robert, Clara forged her own career and played an important role in forming what we now recognize as the culture of classical music. Becoming Clara Schumann guides readers through her entire career, including performance, composition, edits to her husband's music, and teaching. Alexander Stefaniak brings together the full run of Schumann's concert programs, detailed accounts of her performances and reception, and other previously unexplored primary source material to illuminate how she positioned herself within larger currents in concert life and musical aesthetics. He reveals that she was not only an accomplished strategist--having played roughly 1,300 concerts in her 61-year career across western and central Europe-but also played an integral role in shaping the reception of her husband's music. Revolutionary for the time, Schumann earned success and prestige by crafting her own playing style, selecting and composing her own concerts, and acting as her own manager. By highlighting Schumann's navigation of music's gendered boundaries, Becoming Clara Schumann details how she cultivated her public image in order to win over audiences and embody some of her field's most ambitious aspirations for musical performance"--
