British Music And Modernism 1895 1960

by Matthew Riley, British Music And Modernism 1895 1960 Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download British Music And Modernism 1895 1960 book, Imaginative analytical and critical work on British music of the early twentieth century has been hindered by perceptions of the repertory as insular in its references and backward in its style and syntax, escaping the modernity that surrounded its composers. Recent research has begun to break down these perceptions and has found intriguing links between British music and modernism. This book brings together contributions from scholars working in analysis, hermeneutics, reception history, critical theory and the history of ideas. Three overall themes emerge from its chapters: accounts of British reactions to Continental modernism and the forms they took; links between music and the visual arts; and analysis and interpretation of compositions in the light of recent theoretical work on form, tonality and pitch organization.

Australian Music And Modernism 1960 1975

by Michael Hooper, Australian Music And Modernism 1960 1975 Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Australian Music And Modernism 1960 1975 book, Drawing on newly available archival material, key works, and correspondence of the era, Australian Music and Modernism defines "Australian Music" as an idea that emerged through the lens of the modernist discourse of the 1960s and 70s. At the same time that the new "Australian Music" was distinctive of the nation, it was also thoroughly connected to practices from Europe and shaped by a new engagement with the music of Southeast Asia. This book examines the intersection of nationalism and modernism at this formative time. During the early stages of "Australian Music" there was disagreement about what the idea itself ought to represent and, indeed, whether the idea ought to apply at all. Michael Hooper considers various perspectives offered by such composers as Peter Sculthorpe, Richard Meale, and Nigel Butterley and analyzes some of the era's significant works to articulate a complex understanding of "Australian Music" at its inception.

British Musical Modernism

by Philip Rupprecht, British Musical Modernism Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download British Musical Modernism book, British Musical Modernism explores the works of eleven key composers to reveal the rapid shifts of expression and technique that transformed British art music in the post-war period. Responding to radical avant-garde developments in post-war Europe, the Manchester Group composers - Alexander Goehr, Peter Maxwell Davies, and Harrison Birtwistle - and their contemporaries assimilated the serial-structuralist preoccupations of mid-century internationalism to an art grounded in resurgent local traditions. In close readings of some thirty-five scores, Philip Rupprecht traces a modernism suffused with the formal elegance of the 1950s, the exuberant theatricality of the 1960s, and - in the works of David Bedford and Tim Souster - the pop, minimalist, and live-electronic directions of the early 1970s. Setting music-analytic insights against a broader social-historical backdrop, Rupprecht traces a British musical modernism that was at once a collective artistic endeavor, and a sounding myth of national identity.

Musik Konzepte Sonderband Ralph Vaughan Williams

by Ulrich Tadday, Musik Konzepte Sonderband Ralph Vaughan Williams Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Musik Konzepte Sonderband Ralph Vaughan Williams book, Sicherlich, es gibt klangliche Konstanten in der Tonsprache Vaughan Williams'. Dazu zählen nicht zuletzt die 'tudor tunes', womit der Gebrauch modaler Skalen aus der Musik der englischen Renaissance, hauptsächlich der Volks- und Kirchenmusik, gemeint sein soll, oder die Verwendung einer spätromantischen Harmonik, die bewusst auf eine allgemeine Verständlichkeit von Musik abhebt, die im humanistischen Sinne Vaughan Williams' nicht im elitären Geist geschaffen sein sollte. Es wäre allerdings reichlich verfehlt, den Kompositionsstil Vaughan Williams' über einzelne Stilmerkmale identifizieren zu wollen, anstatt auf das Ganze seines musikalischen Ausdrucks zu gehen. Deshalb kommen im Sonderband nicht nur die bekannten und beliebten Sinfonien Vaughan Williams' zu Sprache, sondern darüber hinaus auch seine weitere Instrumentalmusik, Kammermusik und Lieder sowie seine Chor- und Sakralmusik, seine Opern, vor allem "The Pilgrim's Progress", und nicht zuletzt auch seine Bühnen- und Filmmusik – also das breite Spektrum einer Musik, die es verdient, im deutschsprachigen Raum noch weiter bekannt gemacht zu werden. Der Sonderband kann damit als eine Art Handbuch dienen.

Analytical Essays On Music By Women Composers Concert Music 1960 2000

by Laurel Parsons, Analytical Essays On Music By Women Composers Concert Music 1960 2000 Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Analytical Essays On Music By Women Composers Concert Music 1960 2000 book, Over the past 30 years, musicologists have produced a remarkable new body of research literature focusing on the lives and careers of women composers in their socio-historical contexts. But detailed analysis and discussion of the works created by these composers are still extremely rare. This is particularly true in the domain of music theory, where scholarly work continues to focus almost exclusively on male composers. Moreover, while the number of performances, broadcasts, and recordings of music by women has unquestionably grown, these works remain significantly underrepresented in comparison to music by male composers. Addressing these deficits is not simply a matter of rectifying a scholarly gender imbalance: the lack of knowledge surrounding the music of female composers means that scholars, performers, and the general public remain unfamiliar with a large body of exciting repertoire. Analytical Essays on Music by Women Composers: Concert Music, 1960-2000 is the first to appear in a groundbreaking four-volume series devoted to compositions by women across Western art music history. Each chapter opens with a brief biographical sketch of the composer before presenting an in-depth critical-analytic exploration of a single representative composition, linking analytical observations with questions of meaning and sociohistorical context. Chapters are grouped thematically by analytical approach into three sections, each of which places the analytical methods used in the essays that follow into the context of late twentieth-century ideas and trends. Featuring rich analyses and critical discussions, many by leading music theorists in the field, this collection brings to the fore repertoire from a range of important composers, thereby enabling further exploration by scholars, teachers, performers, and listeners.

Alan Bush Modern Music And The Cold War

by Joanna Bullivant, Alan Bush Modern Music And The Cold War Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Alan Bush Modern Music And The Cold War book, The first major study of Alan Bush, this book provides new perspectives on twentieth-century music and communism. British communist, composer of politicised works, and friend of Soviet musicians, Bush proved to be 'a lightning rod' in the national musical culture. His radical vision for British music prompted serious reflections on aesthetics and the rights of artists to private political opinions, as well as influencing the development of state-sponsored music making in East Germany. Rejecting previous characterisations of Bush as political and musical Other, Joanna Bullivant traces his aesthetic project from its origins in the 1920s to its collapse in the 1970s, incorporating discussion of modernism, political song, music theory, opera, and Bush's response to the Soviet music crisis of 1948. Drawing on a wealth of archival sources, including recently released documents from MI5, this book constructs new perspectives on the 'cultural Cold War' through the lens of the individual artist.
