Twisted Muse BERTRAMS
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Is music removed from politics? To what ends, beneficent or malevolent, can music and musicians be put? In short, when human rights are grossly abused and politics turned to fascist demagoguery, can art and artists be innocent? These questions and their implications are explored in Michael Kater's broad survey of musicians and the music they composed and performed during the Third Reich. Great and small--from Valentin Grimm, a struggling clarinetist, to Richard Strauss, renowned composer--are examined by Kater, sometimes in intimate detail, and the lives and decisions of Nazi Germany's professional musicians are laid out before the reader. Kater tackles the issue of whether the Nazi regime, because it held music in crassly utilitarian regard, acted on musicians in such a way as to consolidate or atomize the profession. Kater's examination of the value of music for the regime and the degree to which the regime attained a positive propaganda and palliative effect through the manner in which it manipulated its musicians, and by extension, German music, is of importance for understanding culture in totalitarian systems.This work, with its emphasis on the social and political nature of music and the political attitude of musicians during the Nazi regime, will be the first of its kind. It will be of interest to scholars and general readers eager to understand Nazi Germany, to music lovers, and to anyone interested in the interchange of music and politics, culture and ideology.

Nepal... country of mystery and great beauty... the starting point of your breathtaking journey and home to very twisted twins... However, your mission will propel you far beyond Nepal, far beyond our world and beyond anything you have ever experienced! If you think you are ready... think again... About the Author: As a young boy, Jeff Storm did not really enjoy reading. He could not relate to most books offered to him and quickly got bored reading them. One day his mother introduced him to all sorts of action packed books written by the elusive French writer Henri Vernes and the American icon Robert Ludlum. Jeff was hooked. He loved the martial arts sequences, the good triumphing over evil, and the bandits being stopped. He felt a strong connection to the stories, sometimes imagining he was the hero catching the bad guys. As he read those books, he had a vision: someday, he would start his own collection of books where the reader is the hero of the story... and he did, adding many incredible twists to his outstanding and unique work! Besides being a passionate writer, Jeff Storm is a dedicated teacher with many years of experience under his belt. "I love children and find that every day, I am learning something new from them. If I can inspire my students to use their creativity and imagination in a positive way in order to reach their personal goals and have the success they want, I have done my job."
