cover Debussy and His World (Bard Music Festival Series) by Jane F. Fulcher (Editor)
Look inside! This book has 19 sample pages. Click here to see them.
Book Description
Claude Debussy's Paris was factionalized, politicized, and litigious. It was against this background of ferment and change--which characterized French society and music from the Franco-Prussian War to World War I--that Debussy re-thought music. This book captures the complexity of the composer's restless personal and artistic identity within the new picture emerging of the musical, social, and political world of fin-de-siecle Paris.

cover Piano, the Instrument: An Annotated Bibliography by Michiko Ishiyama Wolcott
Book Description
Piano, the Instrument is an annotated bibliography, organized into six sections by topic: general information, history, builders and manufactures, construction, maintenance and repair, and miscellaneous subjects. The first section lists works containing general information, including but not limited to, books and articles covering a wide range of topics, introductory materials, and serial titles. The second section covers the history on piano and is arranged by country. The section on builders and manufacturers is arranged by name of builder or manufacturer. The sections on construction and maintenance are arranged by parts of the piano. The section on miscellaneous subjects includes catalogs for collections of instruments, works about pedal pianos, pianos associated with composers, selection and purchase, works intended for younger readers, and works about other miscellaneous topics not included above. Readers are referred to the subject index for further cross-referencing. Referencing literature on every aspect of the piano, this annotated bibliography will cut down on research time for scholars and students, directing them to the most relevant and useful sources. No music library should be without it.
cover Pianos and Pianism: Frederic Horace Clarke and the Quest for Unity of Mind, Body, and Universe by Robert Andres
Book Description
Though he has been criticized and neglected, Frederic Horace Clark was a highly prolific writer and musician, whose ideas were truly ahead of his time. He actually started many of the developments in the comprehensive fields of piano technique, study, and interpretation of the twentieth century. In 1832 Clark decided to formulate a "psychophysical" system of playing, and produced a series of "transcedental Žtudes" which he dedicated to Liszt. "Piano and Pianisim" is an assessment of Clark's work and his place in the history of the development of piano technique. The central part of the book deals with his Harmonie-piano. The author discusses in considerable detail the aspects of this twenty-five-year development as well as the philosophy of piano music--the raison d'tre of these many experiments. Frederic Horace Clark stands in a quite isolated, but worthy, niche in the history of music and the time has come now to cast away old prejudice and remember his ideas for the benefit of all humanity.
cover Raising Musical Kids: A Guide for Parents by Robert A., Dr Cutietta, Harvey Mercadoocasio (Illustrator)
From Library Journal
"Musical children are not born they are raised," writes Cutietta (director, Sch. of Music and Dance, Univ. of Arizona), and here he provides practical and insightful instruction, both research- and experience-based, on how to encourage children to appreciate and participate in music. Chapters cover everything from creating a musical home environment and finding a good private teacher to careers in music and community resources. In a parent-friendly way, Cutietta continually reiterates his opening premise: raising musical children is a conscious activity. "It is easier now to be a musical nurturing parent than at any other time," he says, and to back up that assertion he provides useful appendixes to suggest additional resources for a child's music education. This volume compares very favorably with Wilma Machover and Marienne Uszler's Sound Choices: Guiding Your Child's Musical Experiences (LJ 9/1/96), which is organized by age but covers much of the same material. Like that earlier book, Cutietta's will be one that parents refer to again and again. An authoritative addition for parenting collections in all public libraries. Janet Brewer, Murray State Univ., KY
