No modern record company has done more than Brilliant Classics to revive the music and reputation of the Italian-American composer Mario Castelvuovo-Tedesco. Not only in the field of guitar music for which he is most famous, but in piano music (BC94811) and most recently an extensive and powerful song-cycle for soprano and guitar, The Divan of Moses Ibn Ebra (BC95282). Hereâs another new album of the composerâs vocal music, of still greater importance: the first complete recording of his cycle of Shakespeare Sonnets, coupled with the world premiere recording of the three Shakespeare Duets. Castelnuovo-Tedesco set texts by many great poets, among them Dante, Heine and Lorca. It was for Shakespeare, however, that he nurtured his foremost passion. Having composed settings of all the standalone songs in the plays while still resident in Italy, he then turned to the sonnets while âisolated and proudâ in the bitter-sweet exile of Beverly Hills where he made his home for the last 30 years of his life. They were set down with astonishing fluency, more than half within less than two months in the autumn of 1945. Ultimately he put music to 32 of Shakespeareâs 154 sonnets, all in the original English, including three settings for vocal ensemble. All of them are now gathered together for the first time, together with the three Duets from 1937. For Castelnuovo-Tedesco as for many of his colleagues past and present, Shakespeareâs language is âperfectly musical: it unites the spiritual subtlety of English with the sonorous splendour of Italian.â In particular, âthe Sonnets are one of the most miraculous products of the poetry of all times! Shakespeare acts like a mirror of humanity, expressing sentiments that are both his and universal: they are absolute and eternal, expressed by means of an extraordinary, perfect wealth of images.â Thus these settings reflect the beauty and complexity which Castelnuovo-Tedesco âheardâ in the poetry. There is no repetition of words or phrases; the only recurring element is a coda in the piano that seems to act like the unconditional resolutions that conclude each poem. Musical convention is rare, and when it does surface is handled with irony. The prevailing style is bold and free, within the sphere of the Italian vocal tradition, yet not afraid to absorb elements from European music of the early 1900s or echoes of the lighter, popular music that was evolving in the US. This new issue offers the first complete recording of the Shakespeare Sonnets by Castelnuovo-Tedesco. Castelnuovo-Tedesco wrote most of these songs in the USA, after his forced exile from Fascist Italy in 1938. He has been all his life fascinated by William Shakespeare and his sonnets: âit is a perfectly musical language: I dare say that it unites the spiritual subtlety of English with the sonorous splendor of the Italian..Shakespeare acts like a mirror of humanity, expressing sentiments that are both his and universal, they are absolute and eternal, expressed by means of an extraordinary perfect wealth of imagesâŚeach sonnet is a miniature drama, a theatrical play..â The Shakespeare songs are written for soprano, tenor and baritone, some are for choir, the accompaniment is for piano. They are sung by three excellent Italian soloists, with Claudio Proietti on the piano. The booklet contains excellent liner notes written in English and Italian.

Brief Outline of the Life of Henry Clay (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Excerpt from Brief Outline of the Life of Henry Clay It is an evidence of the goodness of his heart that, in the privacy of the domestic circle, surrounded by those to whom he can unbosom himself, nothing so delights him as to recur to the scenes, the labors, the incidents, and the enjoyments of his boyhood; anecdotes of which he often relates with infinite humor and zest. This feeling gushes forth in his speech at Hanover, on the 10th of July, 1840, which he then visited for the first time after some forty-three years' absence. On that interesting occasion, surrounded by nearly the whole population of the county, who had assembled to welcome one of whom they had heard so much, and was so proud as a native of their county, Mr. Clay said: - "I have come here to the county of my nativity, in the spirit of a pilgrim, to meet, perhaps for the last time, the companions and the descendants of the companions of my youth. - Wherever we roam, in whatever climate or land we are cast by the accidents of human life, beyond the mountains or beyond the occean, in the legislative halls of the country, or in the retreats and shades of private life, our hearts turn with an irresistible instinct to the cherished spot which ushered us into existence. And we dwell with delightful associations on the recollection of the streams in which, during our boyish days, we bathed, and the fountains at which we drank; the pine fields, the hills and the valleys where we sported, and the friends who shared the enjoyments with us. - Alas! too many of these friends of mine have gone whither we must all shortly go, and the presence here of the small remnant left behind attests both our loss and our early attachment. I would greatly prefer, my friends, to employ the time which this visit affords in friendly and familiar conversation on the virtues of our departed companions, and on the scenes and adventures of our younger days; but the expectation which prevails, and the state of our beloved country, impose on me the obligation of touching on topics less congenial with the feelings of my heart, but possessing higher public interest." The farm which had belonged to his father was small, and its cultivation, which was continued by his mother, with young Harry's assistance, for several years, afforded the family a scanty subsistence. But the labor performed on that piece of land, sterile as it was, undoubtedly laid the foundation of that strong and vigorous constitution which has enabled Mr. Clay to perform such extraordinary labor through a long life of professional and public service, and to preserve unimpaired his mental and physical vigor. It also gave him a knowledge of farming and a taste for rural occupations, which have grown with his growth and strengthened with his years. "There is not," said a gentleman to me, who for many years has been his neighbor and friend, "there is not a better farmer in the western country than Mr. Clay; and there is no better judge of cattle, horses, and stock generally: nor one who manages his farm to better advantage."

Chales Bargue ACR Edition
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
The Bargue-Gerome Drawing Course is a complete reprint of a famous, late nineteenth century drawing course. It contains a set of almost two hundred masterful lithographs of subjects for copying by drawing students before they attempt drawing from life or nature. Consequently it is a book that will interest artists, art students, art historians and lovers and collectors of drawings. It also introduces us to the work and life of a hitherto neglected master: Charles Bargue. The Drawing Course consists of three sections. The first consists of plates drawn after casts, usually of antique examples. Different parts of the body are studied in order of difficulty, until full figures are presented. The second section pays homage to the western school of painting with lithographs after exemplary drawings by Renaissance and modern masters. The third part contains almost sixty academies or drawings after nude male models, all original inventions by Bargue, the lithographer. With great care, the student is introduced to continually more difficult problems in the close observing and recording of nature. Practiced professional artists will see at once the problems of representation that are approached by Bargue, and they will delight in his solutions. Figure painters will copy the plates to keep in tune; so to speak, much as pianists practice the exercises of Czerny before performing Beethoven. Art students will find it a practical and progressive introduction to realistic figure drawing. Art historians can learn by studying these drawings just what was prized in late ninetheenth century figure painting. They will recognize the reliance upon tradition by the use of antique sculptures as models in the first part: Antiquity is here used, not to impose a classical style, but as an aid in seeing the structure of the human body with clarity and intelligence. The result is a convergence of Classicism and Realism. There are no numerical proportional charts, perspective boxes or geometrical schemata to memorize. All the techniques and schemata are developed out of and for the object or person in view. The drawings are splendid; beautiful; not simply products of assiduity, but of careful observation and the wish to transcribe and communicate the beauty of nature and light, as well as the manifold appearances of the human body. These are objectives that will touch and move any careful reader of drawings, and the figurative arts. Charles Bargue started his career as a lithographer of drawings by hack artists for a popular market in comic, sentimental and soft-porn subjects. By working with Gerome, and in preparing the plates for the course, Bargue was transformed into a spectacular painter of single figures and intimate scenes; a master of precious details that always remain observation and never became self-conscious virtuosity, of color schemes that unified his composition in exquisite tonal harmonies. The last part of the book is a biography of Bargue, along with a preliminary catalogue of his paintings, accompanied by reproductions of all that have been found and of many of those lost.

Schubert Edition Brilliant Classics
Nagrania muzyczneMuzyka poważna
Franz Schubert may have only lived 32 years, but there is no question that he packed a phenomenal amount into his lifetime, with around 600 of his total of nearly 1000 works composed before he was 21. It is astounding to think, given his reputation today as one of Western art?s greatest figures, that only a very small proportion of his music was either performed or published in his day. Born in 1797, he was very much aware of the ?shadow? of Beethoven, another of the ?First Viennese School? (with which Schubert is often equated) and a composer who immeasurably expanded the expressive range of three major genres: the symphony, piano sonata and string quartet. And yet his doubts regarding how he was to follow this German composer?s example proved unjustified; combining his phenomenal melodic gift with a powerful dramatic sense and command of large-scale structure, Schubert equally enhanced these three areas, bestowing on each a large body of compositions that are among today?s most performed pieces of classical music.The symphony, piano sonata and string quartet, therefore, are all included in this special collection, which details the majority of the composer?s output through separating it into key sections. Joining the string quartets ? of which the late D804, D810 are D887 are undoubtedly the most inspired ? are a range of other chamber music treasures, including the famous String Quintet and ?Trout? Piano Quintet, the endearing large-scale Octet for wind and strings, and various duo works such as the Arpeggione Sonata. Though the sonatas dominate his piano literature, Schubert also excelled at composing shorter works for this instrument, such as the Impromptus, and a wonderful array of music for four hands is also included. Contributions to the realm of sacred choral music include six masses, the unfinished Lazarus (which Alfred Einstein believed far surpassed Wagner?s Tannhäuser and Lohengrin as a step along the road to music drama) and the imposing Deutsche Messe, while the inclusion of the opera Alfonso und Estrella and the incidental music to Rosamunde on the set represents the handful of works Schubert wrote for the stage. Last, but by no means least, are Schubert?s secular vocal works. Containing some of his most poignant and penetrative writing, and drawing on a vast range of authors ? including Goethe, Schiller, Shakespeare and many of his close friends ? these include part-songs, then a popular genre among amateur choruses, and a huge corpus of lieder, among which are such gems as Gretchen am Spinnrade and Der Tod und das Mädchen as well as the great song cycles Die schöne Müllerin, Winterreise and Schwanengesang.That Schubert excelled in almost every genre akin to the period in which he lived is in no doubt. Spanning the length of his career, and featuring a wealth of acclaimed artists and ensembles ? among them some of the composer?s greatest interpreters, such as Alfred Brendel and Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau ? this comprehensive box set, priced at a mere ?60, is an exciting addition to Brilliant Classics? ever-expanding library of editions.Other information:- The most comprehensive Schubert Edition ever!- A celebration of the Viennese genius, from the grand structures of the jubilant 9th symphony (?of heavenly length?) to the morbid skeleton melodies of Winterreise, from the genial bonhomie of the Trout Quintet to the utter despair of Der Doppelgänger, from the virtuoso brilliance of the Wanderer Fantasy to the rustic simplicity of the Ländler.- Schubert?s music touches the heart directly, his deceptively simple melodies bring tears to the eyes, his wandering between the dark and the light symbolizes the universal condition humaine.- Featuring numerous period-instrument and award-winning recordings. Booklet contains consummate notes on the composer and his oeuvre.
Story of Tecumseh (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Excerpt from The Story of Tecumseh League. Then he first began to assume importance in the eyes of his enemies and to occupy a place in the his tory of the Border Wars. After the disaster at Tippe canoe, Tecumseh tried in vain to rally his followers in support of their common cause. It was then that in despair he offered his services to the British King. Tecumseh appeared in Canada on the eve of the War of 1812. Events succeeded each other so rapidly in that desperate struggle that historians of the period make but brief mention of the heroic chief who was to them but one of many players in the great drama then being enacted. From what has been said, it will be apparent to the reader how difficult is the task of the writer who would tell the story of Tecumseh. Drake's Tecumseh is the standard, and practically the only, work on the subject, but the later chapters are really a history of the War of 1812, not a biography of the chief. The writer is aware that the same criticism may be made of his own work. He can only say that during the past three years he has sought material from every available source. Scores of books and official documents have been consulted. He has visited the scenes of Tecumseh's life, conversed with the descendants of the early settlers, and heard from the lips of the red men the traditions concerning Tecumseh handed down in their tribes. In the following pages he has tried to depict for young Canadians the noble and pathetic figure of this hero of a lost cause.

Excerpt from Gaslight and Daylight: With Some London Scenes They Shine Upon It is commonly asserted, and as commonly believed, that there are seventy thousand persons in London who rise every morning without the slightest knowledge as to where they shall lay their heads at night. However the number may be over or understated, it is very certain that a vast quantity of people are daily in the above-mentioned uncertainty regarding sleeping accommodation, and that when night approaches, a great majority solve the problem in a somewhat (to themselves) disagreeable manner, by not going to bed at all. People who stop up, or out all night, may be divided into three classes: - First, editors, bakers, market-gardeners, and all those who are kept out of their beds by business. Secondly, gentlemen and 'gents,' anxious to cultivate a knowledge of the 'lark' species, or intent on the navigation of the 'spree.' Thirdly, and lastly, those ladies and gentlemen who do not go to bed, for the very simple reason that they have no beds to go to. The members of this last class - a very numerous one - are said, facetiously, to possess 'the key of the street.' And a remarkably disagreeable key it is. It will unlock for you all manner of caskets you would fain know nothing about. It is the 'open sesame' to dens you never saw before, and would much rather never see again, -a key to knowledge which should surely make the learner a sadder man, if it make him not a wiser one. Come with me, luxuriant tenant of heavy-draped four-poster - basker on feather-bed, and nestler in lawn sheets.
