cover Beethoven: The Music and the Life by Lewis Lockwood
A fresh look at Beethoven's life, career, and milieu highlighting his development as a composer. In this brilliant portrayal of the world's most famous composer, eminent Beethoven scholar Lewis Lockwood interweaves his subject's musical and biographical dimensions and places them in their historical and artistic contexts. Written for the lay reader, the book describes the special problems Beethoven faced as a highly gifted artist who fulfilled his destiny as Mozart's main successor while remaining a true, rebellious original. It sketches the turbulent personal, historical, political, and cultural frameworks in which Beethoven worked and demonstrates their effects on his music. Finally, it turns to the composer in his last years, with great achievements behind him, surmounting the crisis of finding still further artistic paths by which to continue. Also, by providing glimpses into the composer's sketchbooks and autograph manuscripts, Lockwood allows us to gain substantial insights into Beethoven's compositional methods. In a publishing first, musically literate readers will find some one hundred notated music examples on a special Web site. 50 illustrations, 8 music examples.

As composer, it includes program notes, an introduction to his principles of composition, and theoretic-analytical discussion of selected works, including Mikrokosmos . As folklorist, it examines the outcome of Bart-k's fieldwork, methodology, and findings in East European, Arabic, and Turkist autochthonous folk music materials. Bart-k's American years are also discussed. The narrative is supported by a substantial number of musical examples and references.

cover From Dvorak to Duke Ellington: A Conductor Rediscovers America's Music & Its African-American Roots by Maurice Peress
In From Dvorak to Duke Ellington the prominent symphony conductor Maurice Peress describes his career and experiences with American music and musicians. Peress conducted the world premiere of Leonard Bernstein's Mass, worked with Duke Ellington on the Suite from Black Brown and Beige and Queenie Pie, and reconstructed and recreated historic American concerts at which Antheil's Ballet Mecanique, Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue, and Ellington's Black, Brown, and Beige were first presented. Peress also revisits Dvorak's three year residency in 1892-95, the controversy that greeted his radical notion that composers turn to Negro music for inspiration, and the careers of his students who went on to teach Copeland, Gershwin, and Ellington.

cover From Paris to Peoria: How European Piano Virtuosos Brought Classical Music to the American Heartland by R. Allen Lott
It’s difficult to imagine Franz Liszt performing in Peoria, but his contemporary and foremost rival, Sigismund Thalberg, did just that. During the mid-nineteenth century, Americans in more than a hundred cities—from Portland, Maine, to Dubuque, Iowa, to Mobile, Alabama—were treated to performances by some of Europe’s most celebrated pianists. From Paris to Peoria deftly chronicles the visits of these pianists to the America of Mark Twain. Whether performing in small railroad towns throughout the Midwest or in gold-rush California, these five charismatic pianists—Leopold de Meyer, Henri Herz, Sigismund Thalberg, Anton Rubinstein, and Hans von Bülow—introduced many Americans to the delights of the concert hall. With humor and insight, R. Allen Lott describes the glamour and the drudgery of the touring life, the transformation of American audiences from boisterous to reverent, and the establishment of the piano recital as a viable artistic and financial enterprise. Lott also explores the creative and sometimes outlandish publicity techniques of managers seeking to capitalize on prosperous but uncharted American markets. The result of extensive archival research, From Paris to Peoria is richly illustrated with concert programs, handbills, caricatures, and maps. A comprehensive list of repertoires and itineraries, audio music examples, and more primary documents are available on the book's companion web site. Certain to delight pianists, musicologists, and historians, From Paris to Peoria is an engaging, thoroughly researched, and often funny account of music and culture in nineteenth-century America.

cover Stage Presence from Head to Toe: A Manual for Musicians by Karen A. Hagberg
STAGE PRESENCE FROM HEAD TO TOE is the only resource of its kind--a practical, authoritative guide to accepted practices of stage presence for performing musicians. It answers the basic questions every musician has about a performance: how to prepare, how to dress, how to walk out on stage, how to bow, how to look confident and put one's audience at ease, and how to interact with other musicians onstage and with personnel backstage. Hagberg discusses the specific needs of soloists and both small and large ensembles, instrumental and vocal. Illustrations, several helpful checklists, and a comprehensive bibliography are included. This book should appear on the shelves of all musicians--professionals and amateurs, students and teachers. Teachers at the conservatory, high school, and elementary level can use this book as THE reference handbook on stage presence. It is the first textbook for supplementary coursework on this neglected topic.
