J. C. BACH: SIX SONATAS OP. 5 Brilliant Classics
Nagrania muzyczneMuzyka poważna
The genius of Johann Sebastian Bach often overshadows the achievements of his four prodigiously talented sons, all of whom played a crucial role in further advancing music?s development during the 18th century. Johann Christian, the youngest, was indeed among the most pivotal composers of his day, his move to Italy in 1755 precipitating a noticeable change in style that, known as the galant, looked forward to the soon-to-emerge Classical period. In 1762 the composer moved to London, where he soon acquired the title ?English Bach?. Among his admirers was Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, who studied and later arranged a number of the German maestro?s works.Something of a keyboard virtuoso, J.C. Bach was the first to champion the newly invented fortepiano in concert, and his set of Six Sonatas Op.5 (1766) ? the subject of this engaging release ? was the first publication to mention both the fortepiano and harpsichord as performance options on the title page. Clearly the composer wanted to showcase his multi-faceted skills in the opus; the works not only grow in scope as the collection progresses, but also display the widest possible range of compositional manners and characters. From the singing galant style of the early numbers to the grand Baroque fugue in the last, French-oriented, sonata ? a clear allusion to the past, but a ?modern? take in view of the right hand?s countless doubled thirds ? this collection is packed full of virtuosity, poise and bravura ? a set truly befitting of a composer who would later became music master to the English royal family.At hand to perform this delightful collection is one of today?s leading fortepianists, renowned Dutch keyboardist Bart van Oort. The set is a welcome follow-up to van Oort?s previous recording for Brilliant Classics ? Mozart?s Complete Keyboard Music (94198) ? giving voice to a composer who was instrumental in bringing the fortepiano to public attention. More J.C. Bach is in the Brilliant Classics pipeline, too, with van Oort?s recording of Six Sonatas Op.17 set for release in February 2014.Other information:- Recorded 8 February & 24 June 2013, Capuchin Monastery, Velp, The Netherlands.- Johann Christian Bach, the youngest son of the great Johann Sebastian, went into history as the ?English Bach?. He became one of the most important musicians and composers in London the 2nd half of the 18th century, ultimately gaining the desirable post of music master of the Queen.- Johann Christian was the embodiment of the ?Galante Stil?, graceful, tuneful and brilliant music composed to entertain and please. Mozart was a great admirer of him, and transcribed some of his sonatas as mini piano concertos.- Johann Christian introduced the fortepiano as the new instrument ?en vogue?, rather than the old fashioned harpsichord.- Bart van Oort, a specialist on the fortepiano with an international reputation, plays these sonatas with scintillating clearness and charm, on a copy of a Walther fortepiano from 1795.- Contains excellent liner notes written by musicologist Sylvia Berry.

@Sophie Takes a #Selfie - Rules & Etiquette for Taking Good Care Before You Share JenCann Productions
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Author, J. J. Cannon, Freelance Writer and Social Media Pro, is fascinated and inspired, not only by the dichotomy of the not quite emotionally mature 8-10 year old socially active set, but girls of all ages who are interested in definitive guidelines for what constitutes appropriate online behavior. "Sophie" symbolizes every young girl, tween and teen (maybe even Mom or Grandma) in possession of a smart device, which the Author likens to a stick of dynamite if used without proper guidance. The whole wide world opens up to Sophie who can now be in constant communication with friends and share anything in an instant on her favorite social media site...but should she? Sophie loves KiK-ing it and snapping selfies on Instagram but realizes that things can get complicated in a hurry! Why are people leaving mean comments? How come she wasn't invited to the party she's seeing pics of in her feed? Why are kids bullying each other with hateful and humiliating words? Sophie is not perfect. She is going to make mistakes but, together, we can try to guide her in a healthy direction. With her own young daughters in mind, the Author gives us the #SweetSixteen, thoughtfully written "Rules" with a touch of humor, starting with #Keep It Classy. This first rule encourages young people to consider the many alternatives to overused, less than lady-like acronyms. "All of this LMFAO and OMFG-ing is worn out" Cannon writes, and laments the poor letter 'F' being needlessly dragged through the mud. The incredibly adorable illustration accompanying this rule is "My Fair Sophie", a nod to the timeless brilliance of Audrey Hepburn in "My Fair Lady". #Be Kind, asks readers to refrain from using, liking or sharing hate speak of any kind and includes suggestions about what to do if you see it. #Beware the Over-Share asks young people to think about the kind of digital footprint they want to leave and consider future colleges and/or bosses who will likely Google first and ask questions later. The overall message throughout the uniquely named, positive reinforcing rules like #Take 5, #Worry Not, #Practice Perception, #Be Queen Bee, #Find Your Balance, #Protect Your Privacy, and the rest is to stop and think before you react to anything online. "@Sophie Takes a #Selfie" is about self-love, self-respect and self-worth. Sophie learns the proper etiquette for sharing, reposting or tagging photos or artwork without permission, along with the age old, still relevant "if you can't say something nice...", and stresses that it is not ever, under any circumstance, necessary to tell someone he or she is ugly. "You should just go kill yourself." The sad fact is that some kids do. This book includes some eye-opening social statistics and invites readers to continue the conversation with the Author on the site she has created specifically for this book. She shares current information pertaining to kids and Social Media and, should you find yourself in a sticky social situation, feel free to "Ask Sophie".

Training Teachers for Americanization Forgotten Books
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Excerpt from Training Teachers for Americanization: A Course of Study for Normal Schools and Teachers Institutes Sir: In the work of Americanization, which is, in the broad sense, almost entirely educational, the teacher is of first importance. Not every person who can do good work as a teacher of a grade or of particular subjects in a school for children or youth can do equally good work as a teacher of classes of adult foreign-born persons. The preparation for the two tasks must be quite different. In the preparation of teachers of classes of children and youth in our public and private schools we have had much experience, and as a result are in possession of some well-understood and generally accepted principles and methods of procedure. For the preparation of teachers of classes of adult foreign-born persons who are unable to speak, read, and write English, and who know little or nothing of America or American ideals, history, manners, customs, and laws, we have had very little experience, and there are few established and accepted principles or methods of procedure. Any directions or suggestions, therefore, based on clear thinking and a reasonable amount of personal experience and observation can not fail to prove helpful to those who are engaged in this task of training teachers for this work, scores of thousands of whom will be needed as soon as the Federal Government and States make any adequate provision for its support. The manuscript transmitted herewith, prepared by John J. Mahoney, State Supervisor of Americanization for the State of Massachusetts, with the assistance of Frances K. Wetmore, of the public schools of Chicago, and Helen Winkler and Elsa Alsberg, of the Council of Jewish Women, contains many such directions and suggestions. I therefore recommend that it be published as a bulletin of the Bureau of Education. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Republican Rome Forgotten Books
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Excerpt from Republican Rome: Her Conquests, Manners and Institutions From the Earliest Times to the Death of Caesar Shortly after the manuscript of this book was completed Mr. Halle, where he lectured in the University, met with a fatal accident while cycling. This lamentable termination of a busy and honoured life removed from the book in its progress through the press the assistance which would in ordinary circumstances be rendered by the author. Fortunately Mr. Havell was extremely careful in finishing his manuscripts. But his work upon the selection of the illustrations was not very far advanced, and only some notes concerning the maps were found to be serviceable. It was therefore necessary to begin this part of the work afresh, and Mr. H. B. Cotterill was good enough to undertake the selection of the illustrations and to write the explanatory Notes upon them. We are also greatly indebted to him for valuable advice and assistance in the compilation of the maps. Mr. Cotterill desires that acknowledgment should be made here of the kind assistance given him in the selection of the coins by Mr. J. Allan, of the Department of Coins and Medals, British Museum.

Red Pony Penguin
Powieści i opowiadania
In The Red Pony, John Steinbeck's celebration of the spirit and courage of adolescence, we meet Jody Tiflin. Like most ten-year-old boys, Jody feels the urge for rebellion as well as the need to be loved. In these stories, Jody begins to learn about adulthood -- its pains, its responsibilities and its problems -- through the acceptance of his father's gifts. First he is given a red pony and later he is promised the colt of a bay mare. But both these gifts bring tragedy as well as joy, and Jody not only learns some harsh lessons about life (and death), but is also made painfully aware of the fallibility of adults.
