cover Catalogue of Vocal Solos and Duets Arranged in Biblical Order by James Laster, Diana Reed Strommen
This edition serves as a companion volume to "A Catalogue of Choral Music Arranged in Biblical Order".

cover Choral Conducting: Philosophy and Practice by Colin Durrant
Choral Conducting begins with an overview of what is involved in leading a choral group. It then examines theories of learning and human behavior, the history of choral music and the conductor's role. The book discusses issues of the conductor-vocalist relationship, the mechanics of singing, rehearsal strategies, and more. A final overview of what makes a successful conductor rounds out this comprehensive guide, making it the perfect college-level text for students of choral conducting, and a resource for teachers and choral conductors.

cover Christoph Willibald Gluck: A Guide to Research by Patricia Howard
Christoph Willibald Gluck composed for operas in such a way that served the story and related the poetic quality of music. He possessed a gift for creating unity between the art forms that comprise a ballet or opera. This bibliography and guide ties together the different writings on this artist, providing faster access to the information on his life and work.

cover The Complete Musician: An Integrated Approach to Tonal Theory, Analysis, and Listening by Steven Laitz
Bringing together the analytical, aural, and tactile activities that comprise a tonal theory curriculum, The Complete Musician relies on a diverse repertoire and innovative exercises to integrate theory (writing and analysis), skills (singing, playing, and dictation), and music-making outside the theory class. Key Features * Common practice literature is the driving force of the text and comprises the bulk of the harmonic dictation component. * Musical examples range from Schutz to Scriabin and from solo vocal and instrumental music to orchestral ensembles. They include popular and folk music. * Topics covered run the gamut from rudiments to compositional processes of the late nineteenth century. * Exercises are interspersed throughout and increase in pedagogical complexity, ranging from passive identification activities to active composition. * The CD packaged with each text includes more than 300 recorded textbook examples performed by students and faculty from the Eastman School of Music. (A separate set of 8 CDs offers nearly 2000 more examples--from solo piano to full orchestra--played by the same performers.) * The premise of the text is that students can learn to hear, comprehend, and model the structure and syntax of the music they love, and that simple processes, which are fleshed out in diverse contexts, underlie tonal music. An innovative text, The Complete Musician makes the study of tonal theory as engaging and as musical as possible. It provides students with a strong foundation in the principles of writing, analyzing, hearing, singing, and playing tonal harmony and enables them to understand the most important musical forms. Students can then apply these principles to their performances and to any tonal pieces that they encounter throughout their musical careers.

cover Craft of Piano Playing: A New Approach to Piano Technique by Alan Fraser, Sonya Ardan
This work presents a comprehensive approach to piano technique with a series of exercises designed to help the reader put this approach into practice. Alan Fraser has combined his extensive concert pedagogical experience, his long-standing collaboration with the virtuoso Kemal Gekich and his professional training in Feldenkrais Method to create this innovative technique. Using numerous musical examples and sketches he shows how many common movement habits at the keyboard are counterproductive and provides a new way of manipulating the skeletal frame of the hand to produce sonic results from the instrument. The book suggest that in the light of new insights into the physics of human movement, a further development of piano technique is now possible and that improved physical ability can free musical individuality to express itself more fully. The author presents a series of movement exercises that activate the physical functions necessary to the pianist. The exercises help both students who need remedial work in basic strength at the keyboard and those who seek a new dimension of musical understanding and a new path for the development of pianist skills - synthesizing musical and physical issues. This approach can also serve as an effective antidote to debilitating performance anxiety, increasing one's emotional security by improving the physical and musical basis for it. By filling in a missing link between intention and physical execution, this book aims to advance the craft of piano playing.

cover A Creative Approach to Music Fundamentals (with CD-ROM) by William Duckworth
This market-leading book for the Fundamentals of Music course addresses the most difficult challenge in teaching the course: the need to allow for students' differing abilities. Internationally renowned composer William Duckworth covers the fundamentals in 11 concise main chapters that are supplemented by 11 enrichment appendices. These offer extended coverage for teachers or students who desire additional instruction. With a practical focus on developing skills, Duckworth presents many clear examples that show students the basics. Because students can best learn the fundamentals by using them, written and aural exercises give students the opportunity to creatively apply their knowledge in realistic music situations.

cover Discovering Jewish Music by Marsha Bryan Edelman
From ancient biblical music to the modern Israeli pop scene, Discovering Jewish Music charts the evolution of Jewish music through the ages. Edelman begins 3,000 years ago, with a discussion of music in the Bible, and moves on to examine the nature of folk songs and liturgy hymns from the Diaspora, then takes us up to the 20th century, highlighting Jewish music in North America and Israel, including the general popularity of many of today’s Bar Mitzvah favorites, like "Hava Nagila." The author explains musical terms in a way that is understandable to those unfamiliar with the terminology; at the same time, students of music will appreciate the book’s juxtaposition of the many aspects of Jewish life and practice that come together to provide a stage for Jewish music. With an accompanying CD and over 150 musical illustrations in the book, this multimedia package is a treasure for anyone interested in Jewish culture, history, philosophy, and music.

cover George Grove, Music and Victorian Culture by Michael Musgrave (Editor)
Though George Grove, 1820-1900, was never a professional musician, his is one of the most familiar names in music: as founder of the great Dictionary of Music and Musicians that bears his name and first director of the Royal College of Music. This book surveys his varied activities as engineer, biblical scholar, administrator, educationalist, and writer on music, and assesses the qualities that led him to play a major role in the cultural life of London in the period 1850-1900.

cover The Influence of African-American Music on the Works of Frederick Delius by Derek Healey

This work meets the needs of English-speaking singers, conductors, coaches and state directors and provides idiomatic translations, including translations of stage and musical directions.

cover Letters and Diaries of Kathleen Ferrier by Christopher Fifield (Editor)
Fifty years on, a voice that still touches the heart. GRAMOPHONE A vivid self-portrait of a brave, secure woman in love with life and music... Anyone interested in Kathleen Ferrier's life and art will find this welcome book required reading. It is above all, and despite the final descent, a celebration of living. JOHN TALBOT, BRITISH MUSIC SOCIETY NEWSLETTER On closing (this book) with a terrible sadness, I'm a fan too... These letters...chronicle everything, from whom she knocked around with - Britten, Pears, Barbirolli, Danny Kaye, Rex Harrison - to what she sang and what she greedily ate. FINANCIAL TIMES (Michael Church) Delightful letters and diaries. DAILY TELEGRAPH (Rupert Christiansen) 'Ferrier is a national icon, 2003 is the fiftieth anniversary of her cruelly early death. There is an aura about her name, posthumous image and memory that I think is going to make people want to buy these very human, unaffected, in hindsight moving letters... I read with a lump in my throat: Ferrier seems to be goodness incarnate, the most wonderful of all contraltos, beautiful and doomed.' BRUCE PHILLIPS, music editor Fifty years ago, Kathleen Ferrier, the greatest lyric contralto Britain has ever produced, lost her courageous battle with breast cancer. Her name endures to this day, for she struck a chord with a wide-ranging public - in concerts, on records and on the radio - despite a career which lasted barely ten years. Within a decade this former telephone exchange operator was singing on stage at Covent Garden or before royalty at private parties. She was surely fun to know: this collection of 300+ letters and twelve years of her personal diaries give a sunny picture of her life in the muted post-war years. Her indefinable personality was a mix of extreme modesty and self-determined ambition, and a mischievously blunt sense of earthy Lancastrian humour. Until now, Kathleen Ferrier has been a glorious voice, but through the pages of these fascinating letters and diaries, never previously published, we get to the real person. CHRISTOPHER FIFIELD is foremost a conductor, but also a writer on music history (Grove, DNB, Viking Opera Guide, Oxford Companion to Music), and the author of two biographies, of Bruch and Hans Richter.

cover Music in European Capitals: The Galant Style, 1720-1780 by Daniel Heartz
A glittering cultural tour of Europe's major capitals during a period of intense musical change. This second volume of the monumental trilogy that began with the author's Haydn, Mozart, and the Viennese School, 1740-1780 takes us on a musical tour of Naples, Venice, Dresden, Berlin, Mannheim, and Paris. Through richly informed discussions, we learn how the galant style held sway in Europe for much of the eighteenth century. 12 color plates, 116 illustrations, music examples.

cover The Music of Luigi Dallapiccola by Raymond Fearn
Luigi Dallapiccola (1904-1975) was one of the most important Italian composers of the twentieth century. As well as writing several operas, he composed a large number of works in which the human voice, whether in solo or in chorus, plays an important role. Dallapiccola also set texts by writers as diverse as James Joyce, Salvatore Quasimodo, Antonio Machado, Goethe and Heine. This book is the first in English to deal with Dallapiccola as a whole, from the first, hesitant vocal compositions of his student years up to the works of his last decade, in which Italian lyricism is combined with great formal rigor. The author suggests that Dallapiccola should be understood not only as an influential figure in the post-war developments of Italian music, but also as one who renewed and revitalized the older traditions of Italian music.

cover Performance Success : Performing Your Best Under Pressure by Don Greene
Performance Success teaches a set of skills so that a musician can be ready to go out and sing or play at his or her highest level, working with energies that might otherwise be wasted in unproductive ways. This is a book of skills and exercises, prepared by a master teacher.

First published in 1947 and beloved by generations of students, teachers, and opera lovers, A Short History of Opera begins with opera's precursors in the lyric theatre of the Greeks, reveals the genre's beginnings in the seventeenth century, and charts its progress to the present day. An extensive bibliography, musical examples, and illustrations that reveal the importance of stage and scene design enhance the text. For this edition, Williams has added new material on twentieth century music and the American musical, added material on female composers, increased the number of illustrations and examples, and reorganized several chapters for easier reference.
