cover Bellini: Life, Times, Music, 1801-35 by Stelios Galatopoulos
cover Eunuchs in Antiquity and Beyond by Shaun Tougher (Editor)
Book Description
Eunichism was a subject which both intrigued and embarassed the ancient world. The special virtue attributed to the castrated male at court, of undistracted loyalty to their master, aided the promotion of numerous eunuchs to positions of great power. Such eminence provoked resentment and a whole class of literary discourse developed, reviling and occasionally defending these 'half men'. Here, 12 new studies explore how eunuchs were perceived as well as aspects of their life and role within society.
cover Fauré and French Musical Aesthetics by Carlo Caballero
Book Description
This wide-ranging study of Gabriel Fauré and his contemporaries places the music of Fauré in a historical and philosophical context and considers such questions as the meaning of personal style in art and the representation of religious belief in music. Taking a broad view of cultural life during the composer's lifetime and beyond, the book moves deftly between specific details in Fauré's music and related critical, literary and philosophical issues, ranging from Gounod to Boulez and from Proust to Valéry.

cover The Rosaleen Moldenhauer Memorial: Music History from Primary Sources: A Guide to the Moldenhaur Archives by Rosaleen Moldenhauer (Editor), Jon Newsom (Editor), Alfred Mann (Editor)
Book Description
An amply-illustrated book on the Moldenhauer Archives, spanning the history of Western classical music, with essays by noted experts.

The Moldenhauer Archives, gathered during nearly 40 years and spanning the history of Western music from Gregorian chant to the present, represent the most comprehensive collection of manuscripts and other sources for the study of music undertaken by an individual. The manuscripts include music, ranging from full scores to sketches; letters; literary works such as the prologue to Wedekind's play Erdgeist or poems by Hildegard Jone; and other documents, such as receipts signed by J. S. Bach. Some of the manuscripts are "holographs" (entirely in the hand of the author) and some are in the hands of copyists (one letter signed by Beethoven was written out by his nephew). With sensitivity to both their visual and informational value, Hans Moldenhauer used his last sighted years to gather these incomparable documents of musical creativity.

This substantial volume contains 57 essays by a variety of experts on items in the Archives citing the location of each item. With superb color illustrations and a comprehensive inventory, it is an indispensable reference source for librarians and students of music history. Its information on authenticating manuscripts will be useful to collectors and dealers in music manuscripts. It is also a unique source of supplementary reading for college-level courses in music history, providing students with extensive examples of the manuscripts of major composers.

cover Pietro Mascagni and His Operas by Alan Mallach
Book Description
Pietro Mascagni (1863-1945) was a dazzling and influential figure in Italian opera during the late nineteenth- and early twentieth-centuries. Just twenty-six when the electrifying premiere of his Cavalleria Rusticana at the Teatro Costanzi in Rome catapulted the impoverished musician into sudden fame and fortune, Mascagni went on to write fifteen more operas, including L'Amico Fritz, Guglielmo Ratcliff, Iris, Parisina, and Il Piccolo Marat. As composer, conductor, teacher, lecturer, and writer, Mascagni was also intensely engaged in every aspect of Italian musical culture for over fifty years.

This first in-depth and objective biography of Mascagni charts the course of his intriguing life and career. With privileged access to extensive primary sources, including Mascagni's 4,200 letters to Anna Lolli, his mistress for more than three decades, Alan Mallach provides a compelling portrait of a flamboyant, combative, and emotional man who was passionately devoted to the Italian opera tradition and committed to innovation in musical language and dramatic form.

Deftly combining serious biography with critical commentary, Mallach begins with the captivating story of Mascagni's rags-to-riches adventure, from his birth in Livorno in Tuscany, to his musical studies first with Alfredo Soffredini and later at the Milan Conservatory, to his years as a vagabond musician, to the worldwide success of his breakthrough opera. He then traces Mascagni's private and professional life after Cavalleria, examining a prolific yet controversial career that was forever overshadowed by the work that unexpectedly thrust him into the limelight. Mallach provides a full analysis of Mascagni's oeuvre and discusses his complex relationships with such Italian cultural and political figures as Edoardo Sonzogno, Giacomo Puccini, Gabriele D'Annunzio, Luigi Illica, and Benito Mussolini. He also thoroughly chronicles Mascagni's bouts with manic depression, his marriage to Lina and devotion to their three children, his grueling schedule of concert and operatic tours, his patriotism and bitter opposition to Italy's involvement in both world wars, and his passionate love affair with Anna Lolli.

This richly textured biography will appeal to fans of the still beloved and popular Cavalleria, and it will introduce opera enthusiasts to the power, intensity, and melodic beauty of the brilliant composer's many other significant works.
cover Studies in Musical Sources and Style Essays in Honor of Jan Larue by Eugene K. Wolf, Edward H. Roesner (Editor)
From Book News, Inc.
Subtitled Essays in honor of Jan LaRue, this collection of 17 essays, unlike the typical Festschrift, provides in-depth examinations of wide-ranging subject matter--from Gregorian chant to the music of Bartok, from rastrology (the study of musical staving) to melodic structure in the Parisian chanson, from the beginnings of measured polyphony to the masterworks of Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, and Verdi. No index. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, OR.
