The life and twelve-note music of Nikos Skalkottas - 2826998721

The life and twelve-note music of Nikos Skalkottas ASHGATE PUBLISHING

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Nikos Skalkottas is perhaps the last great 'undiscovered' composer of the twentieth century. In the 1920s he was a promising young violinist and composer in Berlin, and a student of Schoenberg, who included him among his most gifted pupils. It was only after his return to Greece in 1933 that Skalkottas became an anonymous and obscure figure, working in complete isolation until his death in 1949. Most of his works remained unpublished and unperformed during his lifetime, and although he is largely known for his folkloristic tonal pieces, Skalkottas in fact concentrated predominantly on developing an idiosyncratic dodecaphonic musical language. Eva Mantzourani provides here a comprehensive study of this fascinating yet under-researched composer. The book, lavishly illustrated with musical examples, is divided into three parts. Part I comprises a critical biography that, by drawing extensively on his letters and other writings, reappraises the image of Skalkottas with which we are often presented. The main focus of the book, however, is on Skalkottas' twelve-note compositional processes, since these characterize the majority of his output, and are neither well-known nor fully understood. Part II presents the structural and technical features of his twelve-note technique, particularly the different types of sets and their manipulation, and his approach to musical forms. Part III consists of analytical case studies of several works, presented largely chronologically, which thus provide a diachronic framework within which Skalkottas' dodecaphonic compositional development can be more effectively viewed. This book underlines Nikos Skalkottas' importance as a composer with a distinctive artistic personality, whose work contributed to the development of twelve-note compositional practice, and who deserves a more significant position within the Western art music canon than that to which he is often assigned.

Opis - Pierwsze na świecie świadectwo ofiary zbrodni honorowej. Miała siedemnaście lat i zakochała się: zhańbiła rodzinę. Więc rodzina wydała na nią wyrok śmierci... Pokochała go pierwszą miłością. Myślała, że się z nią ożeni. Ale ukochany zniknął, a ona odkryła, że jest w ciąży. A w jej świecie to najcięższa zbrodnia... W zapomnianej przez Boga wiosce w Cisjordanii kobiety są warte mniej niż zwierzęta domowe. Tu mężczyzna jest panem życia i śmierci żony, córki, siostry. Brat może bezkarnie zabić siostrę, matka - córkę, kolejną bezużyteczną dziewczynkę, jaka się urodzi. Tu kobiecie odbiera się godność, a nawet życie zgodnie z odwiecznym obyczajem i uświęconą tradycją. A śmierć jest karą dla dziewczyny, która zhańbi rodzinę. Tak jak Souad. Wyrok wydaje jej ojciec. Szwagier dokonuje egzekucji. Oblewa Souad benzyną i podpala... SOUAD przeżyła - cudem, ale rodzina usiłowała zabić ją nawet w szpitalu. Na zawsze jednak pozostanie straszliwie okaleczona - na ciele i duszy. I wciąż musi się ukrywać; dopóki żyje, jej rodzinę okrywa hańba. Spalona żywcem, opublikowana pod pseudonimem szokująca opowieść o piekle, jakim było jej dzieciństwo i młodość, stała się międzynarodowym bestsellerem. Wydana w 37 w krajach książka przerywa tabu milczenia wobec istniejącej nadal w krajach muzułmańskich barbarzyńskiej tradycji. Nieludzkiego obyczaju, prawa mężczyzn, na mocy którego co najmniej pięć tysięcy kobiet pada co roku ofiarą zbrodni honorowej. Nazwa - Spalona Żywcem Wyd.

Les Rois De Versailles: Lute Music By Pinel And De Visee - 2825855095

Les Rois De Versailles: Lute Music By Pinel And De Visee Brilliant Classics

Nagrania muzyczneMuzyka poważna

This release showcases the lute music of two French composers, Germain Pinel and Robert de Visée, both of whom have long been overshadowed by the more renownedfigures of Jean-Baptiste Lully and François Couperin. Pinel and De Visée were active not long after the role of the lute underwent a profound change in France: towards the end of the 16th century, following a decline in the popularity of polyphonic song, the instrument was no longer used to support vocal music, and short suites of dances began to develop for lute solo. The lute was a delicate instrument reserved for small audiences, a court instrument relished by the aristocracy and wealthy bourgeoisie for the intimate concerts of the Parisian salons, and a domestic instrument par excellence. It accompanied all the activities of everyday life. Both Pinel and De Visée were in the service of Louis XIV, who inherited a great musical ? and in particular lute-playing ? tradition encouraged by his father Louis XIII and grandfather Henry IV, and both musicians cultivated the new forms that had recently emerged for the instrument. The suites recorded here provide extraordinary variety: beautiful and sombre allemandes, courtly sarabandes and spritely gigues characterise the music, which is closely associated with the lavish reign of the ?sun king?: the extravagance of his expanding palace at Versailles and the opulence of his elegant lifestyle is epitomised in the stylish music that serenaded his court. Indeed, these works represent music at the height of the grand siecle: France?s period of political and cultural dominance. Having studied at the Paris Conservatoire and with renowned lutenist Hopkinson Smith in Basel, Portuguese-born Miguel Yisrael has gone on to specialise in music of the French Baroque period; the author of, among others, a new series of scores for the Baroque lute called La Rhétorique des Dieux, he is well placed to record the music of Pinel and De Visée. This recording marks his fourth release on the Brilliant Classics label, with two of his previous releases acclaimed in Diapason magazine, where he was described as ?an interpreter to be followed closely?. This release brings us to the magnificent court of Louis XIII and Louis XIV, the Sun King, whose palace was a hotspot of the greatest artists of the time. Both composers De Visée and Pinel worked at the court, playing and composing for the lute, the fashionable instrument for the aristocracy. The repertoire consists of suites of different kind of dance forms: solemn allemandes, courtly sarabandes and spirited gigues alternate as entertainment for kings and courtiers. Lutenist Miguel Yisrael already recorded several CD?s for Brilliant Classics, all of which met with great critical acclaim: 5 star reviews and a Diapason d?Or.The booklet contains excellent and extensive liner notes, biography and information on the historical instruments used. Other information:Recorded in 2014.Booklet includes comprehensive liner notes and an artist biography.French liner notes available online.

Sardelli: Baroque Concertos, Psalm, Chamber Music Brilliant Classics

Nagrania muzyczneMuzyka poważna

As the composer, conductor, scholar and provocateur explains in his own notes, this is Baroque music for our time. Federico Maria Sardelli's long experience researching and editing the music of Vivaldi leaves him perhaps ideally placed to recreate such music in his own image, which he does here with chamber, orchestral and vocal music that is less a pastiche, in which identity is obscured, than a defiant recreation of a past age. 'It's important for me to point out that I don't compose "neo-Baroque" music, but Baroque music. It's not a question of revisiting a musical idiom, or being influenced by it. What I do is breathe new life into a style that's dead so that it regains its own original language and adheres to its own original criteria, expressing vibrant new ideas that are keeping with its identity.'As his fellow composer Carlo Boccadoro remarks, the result 'is rather like filling antique containers with sparkling coloured liquids so that they take on an entirely new aspect; or looking at certain Renaissance portrayals that seem slightly distorted until they are viewed from exactly the right angle... Like optical illusions themselves, his music is both real and immaterial, built from solid counterpoint and born aloft by airy lightness. Sardelli subtly eludes the whole subject of musical idiom so central to all forms of contemporary music, fully aware of his own unique and inimitable individuality.'The performers on this unique disc are experienced performers of the Baroque style, playing in 'historically informed' conditions -- a further paradox that enriches this time-bending recording. Under the baton of Sardelli, Modo Antiquo appears regularly at major international festivals and concert halls. Its discography of more that 40 titles includes many world premiere recordings.Other information:- New recording made in 2013.- Another obscure baroque composer dug up from the dusty archives of some Italian library? No! Federico Maria Sardelli is alive and kicking, a highly respected musician and conductor rightly famed for his numerous outstanding recordings (the Vivaldi Edition on Naive).Sardelli is also a composer of Baroque music, and to comment on that we better let him speak himself: "It's important for me to point out that I don't compose 'neo-Baroque' music, but Baroque music. It's not a question of revisiting a musical idiom, or being influenced by it. What I do is breathe new life into a style that's dead so that it regains its own original language and adheres to its own original criteria, expressing vibrant new ideas that are keeping with its identity."- Sardelli's Baroque music is sparkling, luminous, witty, deeply feeling, and extremely well crafted: a true "discovery"!- Performed by his own Modo Antiquo, and a line-up of excellent soloists of international renown. And of course conducted by himself..- Booklet notes including tributes to Sardelli from the Vivaldi scholar Michael Talbot.

MARAIS: PIECES DE VIOLE, BOOK V Brilliant Classics

Nagrania muzyczneMuzyka poważna

It is surprising that so little is known about Marin Marais today, as he could be considered one of the most important French composers of the Baroque period. Born in 1656, the son of a shoemaker, Marais spent his entire life in Paris. His musical career began when he joined the choir of the Sainte-Chapelle, but when his voice broken he decided to learn the viol, studying with the renowned bass viol player Sainte-Colombe, who had a profound influence on the young Marais. Marais went on to enter the royal orchestra and the orchestra of the Académie Royale de musique, where he performed and studied composing under Jean-Baptiste Lully. He was hailed as the greatest bass viol player of his time, and is said to have played the viol 'like an angel'.Marais's vast output for the viol (over 800 pieces!) is astonishingly varied, original and affecting ? no other composer has written so many works of such high quality for the instrument. The fifth and final book of Pieces de viole showcases Marais's art at its most mature and sophisticated, and includes a wider range of musical forms and techniques than the previous four books. Although the fifth book contains many of the conventional dance forms that listeners would expect to hear in a Baroque suite, there are many remarkable descriptive pieces that justify the claim that Marais was the first composer of programme music. A particularly striking example is the ?Tableau de l'Opération de la Taille? from the final Suite: an extraordinarily detailed musical depiction of an operation to remove a gall stone that the composer underwent!These captivating suites are brought to life in vivid performances by acclaimed chamber musicians and early music specialists Rainer Zipperling, Ghislaine Wauters and Pieter-Jan Belder.Other information:- Recorded in 2013.- Little is known of the life of Marin Marais, but he is unquestionably one of the most important and original composers of the French Baroque. His public ?breakthrough? came with the blockbuster film ?Tous les matins du monde?, which features his beautiful works for the viol.- Marais left a vast output of suites for the viol, the viola da gamba, in total 5 books. This new recording presents the 5th book, the most daring and original of all. In these suites of dance forms he introduces the first known examples of ?program music?, music depicting non-musical ideas or events. One suite for instance describes an operation to remove a gall stone, which includes the binding of the patient and his painful screaming!- Excellent performances by one of the best known viola da gamba players of the moment, Rainer Zipperling, seconded by harpsichord veteran Pieter-Jan Belder.- Includes booklet notes and biographies of the artists.

Maria Ewing, Denes Gulyas, Robert Lloyd - Berlioz: La Damnation de Faust

Książki & Multimedia > Muzyka

Opis - Although little appreciated in his native France for many years, Hector Berlioz now safely resides among the giants of the 19th century's musical scene. The composer's vocal output is extensive and includes several operatic works; written during 1845--46, La Damnation de Faust forms the subject of this engaging 2CD release. The work grew out of Berlioz's encounter with Goethe, one of the great influences -- together with Shakespeare -- on the composer's creativity. A hybrid composition which employs just four principal singers and a chorus, as befits a 'concert' setting, La Damnation de Faust is too theatrical to work in this guise -- and, alas, too impractical to be staged successfully. Nevertheless it remains an intensely dramatic piece: listen out for the violent orchestral outpourings of the Hungarian March as well as the 'Ride to Hell', which leads to a terrible vision of Pandemonium. Residing among the composer's most intense and thrilling music, the work features many ballet episodes and includes Marguerite's song -- one of the greatest French operatic scenes. 'Inbal has a fine ear for Berlioz's orchestration, matched by sensitive recording, so that time and again details spring into dramatic life...a distinctive and intelligent performance... No lover of the work should miss hearing it.' Gramophone, July 1991 Other information: - Recorded in 1989, when the great Israeli conductor Eliahu Inbal spent a remarkably successful and fruitful period in Frankfurt with its orchestra, resulting in several impressive symphonic cycles, notably the legendary complete Mahler Symphonies.Apart from the great artistic value of these recordings, the special one-point recording technique used by the Denon engineers is still a marvel of natural recorded sound. - A superb release, formerly issued on the prestigious Denon label, of the "dramatic legend" La Damnation de Faust, written (both music and libretto) by Hector Berlioz, after the famous "Faust" of Goethe. - Wonderful soloists: Maria Ewing, Denes Gulyás, Robert Lloyd and the young Christiane Oelze. - Includes booklet notes on the composer and the music.

Distler: Die Weihnachtsgeschichte Brilliant Classics

Nagrania muzyczneMuzyka poważna

The revival of Protestant church music after the First World War marked the renewal of pieces available for direct use in services and represented a search for a new scale of values. Admired in church music circles but persecuted by the Nazis for his 'degenerate' music, Hugo Distler was one of its foremost cultivators, imbuing his choral music with pre-Classical forms to create a distinctive style that would be accessible to the 'common' man.The tender Weihnachtsgeschichte Op.10, composed in 1933, is one of Distler's many works adhering this criteria and which narrates the traditional Christmas story according to the gospels of St Luke and St Matthew. Right from the start, in the first of two motets which frame the piece, the composer conjures up complex modal harmonies that evoke ancient, dark images, and throughout the composition (written for four soloists and four-part a cappella chorus) he recalls the musical language of the great Baroque composer Heinrich Schütz, drawing on his use of word-painting and imitative counterpoint but all the time embellishing the work with new techniques such as syncopated rhythm and harmonic dissonance. The free recitative style of the soloists is particularly affecting -- here the note heads without heads encourage the use of natural speech rhythms, reflecting once again the influence of Schütz through his frequent close matching of music to intonation.Distler's life came to a tragic end when, in the face of ever increasing persecution in Berlin and the constant threat of recruitment into the military service, he committed suicide in 1942. Multiple repeated phrases in Weihnachtsgeschichte such as 'Zu Bethlehem im jüdischen Lande' ('To Bethlehem in the Jewish countries') are testament to the composer's resolve to stand true to his faith, despite the persecution that it ultimately aroused. This recording, featuring a stellar solo cast ably supported by the Thomanerchor Leipzig -- one of the most respected choirs in the Europe -- can only increase our appreciation for a composer whose work represents an important chapter in sacred music history.Other information:- Hugo Distler was one of the most important composers of choral music in the first half of the 20th century. A Protestant, he mainly used his native language German. His music reaches back to the great German polyphonists like Schütz, imbuing it with polymodal and polyrythmical elements, creating a unique, introverted, ascetic but deeply felt language, which touches the heart. His personal troubles and the repression of his music by the Nazis who though it 'degenerate', led to his suicide in 1942, a tragic end of a highly talented composer and human being.- Excellent performance by the world famous Thomanerchor Leipzig and superb German soloists.- Booklet contains German and English notes on the music.

Happiness: A History - 2826625411

Happiness: A History Grove Press / Atlantic Monthly Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Darrin M. McMahon's sweeping new book, chronicling the evolution of happiness over two thousand years of Western culture and thought, argues that our modern belief in happiness -- that happiness is a natural right -- is a relatively recent development. It is a product of a dramatic revolution in human expectations carried out since the eighteenth century. Central to the development of Christianity, ideas of happiness assumed their modern form during the Enlightenment, when men and women were first introduced to the novel prospect that they could -- in fact should -- be happy in this life as opposed to the hereafter. Ultimately, the Enlightenment's recognition of happiness as a motivating ideal led to its consecration in the Declaration of Independence and France's Declaration of the Rights of Man. McMahon follows this great pursuit through to the present day, showing how our modern search for happiness continues to generate new forms of pleasure, but also, paradoxically, new forms of pain. In the tradition of works by Peter Gay and Simon Schama, "Happiness" draws on numerous sources, including art and architecture, poetry and scripture, music and theology, literature and myth to offer a sweeping intellectual history of man's most elusive yet coveted goal.
