♥ Book Title : New Perspectives on Marc-Antoine Charpentier
☯ Full Synopsis : "The tercentenary of Marc-Antoine Charpentier's death in 2004 stimulated a surge of activity on the part of performers and scholars, confirming the modern assessment of Charpentier (1643-1704) as one of the most important and inventive composers of the French Baroque. The present book illustrates not only the sheer variety of research strands currently pursued, but also the way in which these strands frequently intertwine and generate the potential for future research. Between them, they examine facets of the composer's compositional language and process, aspects of his performance practice and notation, the contexts within which he worked, and the nature of his legacy. The appendix contains a transcription of the inventory of Charpentier's manuscripts prepared when their sale to the Royal Library was negotiated in 1726 - an invaluable research tool, as numerous chapters in the book demonstrate. The wide variety of topics covered here will appeal both to readers interested in Charpentier's music and to those with a broader interest in the music and culture of the French Baroque, including aspects of patronage, church and theatre. Far from treating his output in isolation, this book places it in the wider context alongside such composers as Lully, Lalande, Marais, François Couperin and Rameau; it also views the composer in relation to his Italian training. In the process, the under-examined question of influence - who influenced Charpentier? whom did he influence? - repeatedly comes to the fore."Article| Shirley Thompson| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : The Operas of Rameau
☯ Full Synopsis : "In recent years, interest in Rameauâe(tm)s operas has grown enormously. These works are no longer regarded as peripheral by performers and audiences but are increasingly staged in the worldâe(tm)s major opera houses and festivals, while the production of first-rate recordings on CD and DVD continues to flourish. Such welcome developments have gone hand in hand with an upsurge in research on Rameau and his period. The present volume, devoted solely to the composerâe(tm)s operas, reflects this scholarly activity. It brings together a substantial group of essays by an international team of scholars on all aspects of Rameauâe(tm)s operas. The individual essays are informed by a variety of disciplines or sub-disciplines - literature, economics, archival studies, musical analysis, gender studies, ballet and choreography, dramaturgy and staging. The contents are addressed to a wide readership, including not only scholars but also practical musicians, stage directors, dancers and choreographers."Article| Graham Sadler| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : New Perspectives on Tudor Cultures
☯ Full Synopsis : "This volume presents a selection of papers from the 6th International Conference of the Tudor Symposium, held at the University of Sheffield in 2009. It brings together new explorations of Tudor literature from scholars based all over Europe: France, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Norway, and the United Kingdom. The papers cover the long mid-Tudor period, from Skelton and more to the young Shakespeare, but with a central emphasis on the middle decades of the sixteenth century. Topics range widely from philosophy and social commentary to more traditionally literary kinds of writing, such as lyric and tragedy (both dramatic and non-dramatic). The volume as a whole offers an attractively kaleidoscopic image of the variety of new work being carried out in the area in the new millennium."Article| Mike Pincombe| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Marc-Antoine Charpentier and the Flûte
☯ Full Synopsis : "Marc-Antoine Charpentier (1643-1702) is now recognized as the greatest French composer of the 17th century. He wrote over 120 works, mostly vocal, in which he called for flûtes, mostly in pairs, as well as about 80 further works in which he might have intended the unmarked treble parts to be played on flûtes. But which instruments did he have in mind? Recorders (and of what sizes)? Renaissance flutes or Baroque traversos (and of what sizes)? Drawing on the latest research by Charpentier scholars, David Lasocki has surveyed the entire corpus of the composer's works written, or possibly written, for flûtes, looking at the characteristics of the parts as well as the ensembles and occasions for which the works were written-the Guise Music, the Dauphin's Music, the Jesuits, and the Sainte-Chapelle. He has therefore been able to reach more reliable, and more surprising, conclusions about the flûtes than earlier scholars. If you love Charpentier, if you play Charpentier, if you want to get to know this wonderful composer's works better, or if you are interested in the history of the recorder and flute, this book is a must-have for you. The text is accompanied by no fewer than 48 musical examples, most of them of playable length."Article| David Lasocki| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Jean 'Django' Reinhardt
☯ Full Synopsis : "This volume gathers together and organizes in an easily accessible format all known information relevant to the life and work of the French jazz musician Django Reinhardt. Together with fellow musician, Stane Grappelli, Reinhardt became one of the twentieth century's most celebrated jazz artists with performances he gave as part of the Quintet of the Hot Club of France. Essentially discographical in format, this book updates the original work compiled by Charles Delauney in 1960, and draws on later work by Gould, Nevers, Royal and Rust, to detail all known recordings by Reinhardt, together with known film, radio and television appearances. For each entry Paul Vernon provides, where known, the location of the recording, the date, the artist credit as it appears on the label of the original issue, the performers and the instruments played by them, the matrix number, the exact timing of the recording and details of 78, LP, EP and CD issues. Interspersed at the appropriate chronological points are biographical details about Reinhardt and the political, social and cultural climate of his time. This is augmented with excerpts from reviews, letters and other documents to provide a vivid context for his recording work."Article| no defined| Statement ..."
