Thomas Adès : Asyla
Venn, Edward, 1974- author
New York, NY : Routledge, an imprint of the Taylor & Francis Group, 2017
Thomas Adès in the 1990s -- Towards Asyla (1990-97) -- 'Trying to find refuge': the symphonic logic of the first movement -- 'A safe place to go in times of trouble' -- 'Ecstasio': a 'freaky, funky rave'? -- Asylum gained? -- Interpreting Asyla -- Epilogue: after Asyla.

"Thomas Adès (b. 1971) is an established international figure, both as composer and performer, with popular and critical acclaim and admiration from around the world. Edward Venn examines in depth one of Adès's most significant works so far, his orchestral Asyla (1997). Its blend of virtuosic orchestral writing, allusions to various idioms, including rave music, and a musical rhetoric encompassing both high modernism and lush romanticism is always compelling and utterly representative of Adès's distinctive compositional voice. The reception of Asyla since its premiere in 1997 by Sir Simon Rattle and the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (CBSO) has been staggering. Instantly hailed as a classic, Asyla won the 1997 Royal Philharmonic Society Award for Large-Scale Composition. An internationally acclaimed recording made of the work was nominated for the 1999 Mercury Music Prize, and in 2000, Adès became the youngest composer (and only the third British composer) to win the Grawemeyer prize, for Asyla. Asyla is fast becoming a repertory item, rapidly gaining over one hundred performances: a rare distinction for a contemporary work." --

Spider from Mars : my life with Bowie
Woodmansey, Mick, author
New York : St. Martin's Press, 2017
Foreword / by Tony Visconti -- Rocker in waiting -- Ratted out -- All the madmen -- Oh! You pretty things -- Hang on to yourself -- Starman -- Let yourself go -- It ain't easy -- Watch that man -- So where were the spiders? -- Holy days -- Afterword / by Joe Elliott.

"In January 2016, the unexpected death of David Bowie rocked the globe. For millions of people, he was an icon celebrated for his music, his film and theatrical roles, and his trendsetting influence on fashion and gender norms. But no one from his inner circle has told the story of how David Jones -- a young folksinger, dancer, and aspiring mime -- became one of the most influential artists of our time. Drummer Woody Woodmansey is the last surviving member of Bowie's band The Spiders from Mars which helped launch his Ziggy Stardust persona and made David Bowie a sensation. In this first memoir to follow Bowie's passing, Spider from Mars reveals what it was like to be at the white-hot center of a star's self-creation. With never-before-told stories and never-before-seen photographs, Woodmansey offers details of the album sessions for The Man Who Sold the World, Hunky Dory, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, and Aladdin Sane: the four albums that made Bowie a cult figure. And, as fame beckoned but eventually consumed Bowie, Woodmansey recalls the wild tours, eccentric characters, and rock 'n' roll excess that eventually drove the band apart. A vivid and unique evocation of a transformative musical era and the enigmatic, visionary musician at the center of it, with a foreword by legendary music producer Tony Visconti and an afterword from Def Leppard's Joe Elliot, Spider from Mars is for everyone who values David Bowie, by one of the people who knew him best."--Dust jacket.

Dance and drama in French baroque opera : a history
Harris-Warrick, Rebecca, author
Cambridge, United Kingdom : Cambridge University Press, 2016
Since its inception, French opera has embraced dance, yet all too often operatic dancing is treated as mere decoration. This book exposes the multiple and meaningful roles that dance has played, starting from Jean-Baptiste Lully's first opera in 1672. It counters prevailing notions in operatic historiography that dance was parenthetical and presents compelling evidence that the divertissement is essential to understanding the work. The book considers the operas of Lully and the 46-year period between the death of Lully and the arrival of Rameau, when influences from the commedia dell'arte and other theatres began to inflect French operatic practices. It explores the intersections of musical, textual, choreographic and staging practices at a complex institution - the Academie Royale de Musique - which upheld as a fundamental aesthetic principle the integration of dance into opera.

Scoring the score : the role of the orchestrator in the contemporary film industry
Sapiro, Ian, author
Abingdon, Oxon : Routledge, 2017
Interviews and interviewees -- Orchestrating and arranging -- Becoming an orchestrator -- The impact of technology -- Involvement in a film-scoring project -- Working practices -- Local differences in a global industry -- The role of the orchestrator in the contemporary film industry -- Appendix A: outline interview schedules -- Appendix B: interviewee details -- Appendix C: information on software packages.

'Scoring the Score' is the first scholarly examination of the orchestrator's role in the contemporary film industry. Orchestrators are crucial to the production of a film's score, yet they have not received significant consideration in film-music research. This book sheds light on this often-overlooked yet vital profession. It considers the key processes of orchestrating and arranging and how they relate, musical and filmic training, the wide-ranging responsibilities of the orchestrator on a film-scoring project, issues related to working practices, the impact of technology, and the differences between the UK and US production processes as they affect orchestrators.

The last waltz : the Strauss dynasty and Vienna
Suchet, John, 1944- author
New York : Thomas Dunne Books, St. Martin's Press, 2015
City of Dreams -- Café Culture -- Conquering Paris -- By Royal Appointment -- A Family Conspiracy -- 'Good Morning Strauss Son!' -- Radetzky Marches Out of Step -- A New Waltz King -- 'Pepi' Joins the Family Firm -- In Russia and in Love -- Tying the Knot -- The Strauss Family in Mourning -- Strauss Turns His Hand to Operetta -- Johann Strauss Tastes Failure -- To the Altar Again -- Tragedy in the Imperial Royal Family -- The 'Emperor Waltz' -- An Assassin's Knife Breaks the Emperor's Heart -- A Final Fledermaus and Johann Strauss Bids Farewell -- Eduard's Flames of Revenge -- A New Century and a New Vienna -- The Nazis Rewrite History -- Admired by the Greats.

"Captured in a beautiful package, including more than fifty color photographs, The Last Waltz tells the intriguing story of of the Viennese Strauss family known for producing some of the best known, best loved music of the nineteenth century. Johann and Josef Strauss, the Waltz Kings, composed hundreds of instantly recognizable and enduring melodies, including The Blue Danube Waltz, Tales from the Vienna Woods, Voices of Spring and The Radetzky March. Their iconic music has been featured on the scores of nearly a thousand films. Yet despite their success, this was a family riven with tension, feuds and jealousy, living in a country that was undergoing seismic upheaval. Through the personal and political chaos, the Strauss family continued to compose music to which the Viennese -- anxious to forget their troubles -- could dance and drank champagne, even as their country hurtled towards oblivion at the hands of the First World War. Classical music expert and radio host John Suchet skillfully portrays this gripping story, capturing the family dramas, the tensions, triumphs and disasters against the turbulent backdrop of Austria in the nineteenth century, from revolution to regicide." --

Love in vain : Robert Johnson, 1911-1938
Dupont, J. M., author
London : Faber & Faber, 2016
From 'Crossroads Blues' to 'Sweet Home Chicago', 'Hellhound on My Trail' to 'Come On In My Kitchen', Robert Johnson wrote some of the most enduring and formative songs of the original blues era, songs that would go on to help shape the birth of rock 'n' roll in the 1960s. Beloved of Clapton, Dylan and the Stones, Robert Johnson remains one of the most iconic and mythologized figures in popular music (and the first of many to die at the age of 27). Born in the in the South in Mississippi, Johnson made his way to the urban North as a traveling musician, but it was only when he returned to the South that he recorded the twenty-nine songs, in two sessions, which would create his legacy. Exploring the stories and legends that surround his life and death his childhood, his womanizing, his pact with the devil at the crossroads Mezzo and DuPont have produced a fittingly creative and beautiful depiction of this most extraordinary life.

Jews, music, and the American West : portraits of pioneers
Friedmann, Jonathan L., 1980- author

Pearle Irene Odell and the neighborhood music settlement -- 5. Jerome H. Bayer and the California Menorah Society -- 6.

"Music and the American West are oft-neglected topics in Jewish studies. Compared to other aspects of the Jewish experience, music is rarely engaged in as a subject unto itself. That which is written tends to be confined either to remote musicological studies and specialized professional journals, or tangential anecdotes in writings on other things. Thus, despite being a central sustaining element of Jewish life, music generally takes a backseat in the social-historical narrative. Reasons for this include the emphasis on text study in Jewish communities, the presumed secondary status of music vis-à-vis text, the requisite skillset for assessing and analyzing music, and the relatively recent historical moment when Jews began notating their music and calling it "Jewish" (eighteenth and nineteenth centuries). Musicologist Edwin Seroussi calls music the "Jew" of Jewish studies, referencing its marginalized and "wandering" status in the larger field. He notes the absence of "music" in the indexes of most textbooks on Jewish cultural history"--

Performance practice in the music of Steve Reich
Hartenberger, Russell, author
Cambridge, United Kingdom : Cambridge University Press, 2016
Reich provides a performer's perspective from his iconic minimalist work, Drumming, to his masterpiece, Music for 18 Musicians. It addresses performance issues encountered by the musicians in Reich's original ensemble and the techniques they developed to bring his compositions to life. Drawing comparisons with West African drumming and other non-Western music, the book highlights ideas that are helpful in the understanding and performance of rhythm in all pulse-based music. Through conversations and interviews with the author, Reich discusses his percussion background and his thoughts about rhythm in relation to the music of Ghana, Bali, India, and jazz. He explains how he used rhythm in his early compositions, the time feel he wants in his music, the kind of performer who seems to be drawn to his music, and the way perceptual and metrical ambiguity create interest in repetitive music.

El Sistema - "The System" - is a music education phenomenon. Since its inception 40 years ago, over a million Venezuelan children from many different socio-economic backgrounds have participated in its mission of "social change through music". This book therefore offers practical information for those seeking knowledge, inspiration or guidance for adapting El sistema to widely divergent socio-economic settings, particularly within the USA. Designed as a collection of essays, it explores the voices and experiences of teachers, leaders, parents, and experts from related fields with the hope of inspiring actions, both large and small, to advance social change through music.

Premiering in 1975 and the hit of the 1997 Broadway season in a production that originated at City Center's Encore! series, Chicago won six Tony Awards including Best Revival and later the Academy Award as Best Picture of the Year. In roaring twenties Chicago, chorine Roxie Hart murders a faithless lover and convinces her hapless husband Amos to take the rap ... until he finds out he's been duped and turns on Roxie. Convicted and sent to death row, Roxie and another "Merry Murderess" Velma Kelly, vie for the spotlight and the headlines, ultimately joining forces in search of the "American Dream" ... fame, fortune and acquittal. This sharp edged satire features a dazzling score that sparked immortal staging by Bob Fosse.

"Much revived, most recently in a 2010 production transferred to Broadway from London's Menier Chocolate Factory, La Cage Aux Folles remains one of the all time biggest hits, adding new dimension to the boulevard comedy. After twenty years of un-wedded bliss Georges and Albin, two men partnered for better-or-worse get a bit of both when Georges' son (fathered during a one-night fling) announces his impending marriage to the daughter of a bigoted, right-wing politician. Further complicating the situation is the 'family business': Albin and Georges run a transvestite nightclub in St. Tropez, where Albin is the "star" performer 'Zaza.' Georges reluctantly agrees to masquerade as "normal" when he meets the family of the bride-to-be. But Albin has other plans, with hilarious results"--From back cover.

"Urs Widmer hat mit seinem letzten Text den Mythos vom Mannsberg und vom Föhn geschaffen. Herausgekommen ist - ein Musiktheater. Plötzlich kommt ein warmer Wind auf und trocknet die Wolken vom Himmel. Die Berge rücken aneinander, alles scheint näher, klarer, schöner, heller, und die Sonne strahlt in ihrer Masslosigkeit. Postkartenzauber! Der Föhn gehört zur alpinen Welt und zu den Alpenländern wie die Berge selbst. Geliebt und gefürchtet ist er und verankert in unserem Alltag. Am 16. September 2014 feierte "Föhn" im Theater Basel Premiere. Das Publikum und die Presse waren begeistert. Die Südostschweiz schrieb: "Kraftvoll fabulierend wie eh und je, erfindet Urs Widmer den Mythos vom Mannsberg und vom Föhn, einer aus dem Berg geborenen Windsbraut, die stürmisch durchs Tal fegt", und die Badische Zeitung lobte: "Die 'Föhn'-Musik entwickelt sich zum kongenialen Partner der Widmer'schen Beschwörungen der leidenschaftlichen Naturkräfte." Leider konnte Urs Widmer die Aufführungen nicht mehr selbst begleiten, er ist am 2. April 2014 verstorben. Nun erscheint das Werk inklusive aufwändige Tonaufnahme, die als CD beigelegt ist."

Bop apocalypse : jazz, race, the beats, and drugs
Torgoff, Martin, author
Boston, MA : Da Capo Press, [2016]
Red-dirt marijuana -- Stompin' at the Savoy -- The paranoid spokesman -- Two hits of that stuff, and Jack, you'd be mellow -- The white mayor of Harlem -- Pops -- The misdo gets meanor and meanor (jailhousely speaking) -- The great tenor solo in the shoeshine jukebox -- You mean there's something like this in the world? -- Once known, never forgotten -- The shot heard 'round the world -- You're buzzing, baby -- And the hippos were boiled in their tanks -- Parker's mood -- A ghost in daylight on a crowded street -- Ain't nobody's business if I do -- The sacralization of the mundane -- That was our badge -- Blues for a junkie whore -- Wild form, man, wild form... -- Trust the Germans to concoct some really evil shit -- Holy the bop apocalypse! -- 'Round midnight -- Why are all these young boys being hanged in limestone caves, Bill? -- The empirical soul of jazz -- Peyote solidities of halls -- A readily recognizable stigmata -- Goodbye pork pie hat -- It's all a part of their poetic-no, their metaphysical-education -- Let Lady live -- The end of the beginning : an epilogue.

With an intricate storyline that unites engaging characters and themes and reads like a novel, Bop Apocalypse details the rise of early drug culture in America by weaving together the disparate elements that formed this new and revolutionary segment of the American social fabric. Drawing upon his rich decades of writing experience, master storyteller Martin Torgoff connects the birth of jazz in New Orleans, the first drug laws, Louis Armstrong, Mezz Mezzrow, Harry Anslinger and the Federal Bureau of Narcotics, swing, Lester Young, Billie Holiday, the Savoy Ballroom, Reefer Madness, Charlie Parker, the birth of bebop, the rise of the Beat Generation, and the coming of heroin to Harlem. Aficionados of jazz, the Beats, counterculture, and drug history will all find much to enjoy here, with a cast of characters that includes vivid and memorable depictions of Billie Holiday, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Jackie McLean, Allen Ginsberg, William S. Borroughs, Jack Kerouac, Herbert Huncke, Terry Southern, and countless others. Bop Apocalypse is also a living history that teaches us much about the conflicts and questions surrounding drugs today, casting many contemporary issues in a new light by connecting them back to the events of this transformative era. At a time when marijuana legalization is rapidly becoming a reality, it takes us back to the advent of marijuana prohibition, when the templates of modern drug law, policy, and culture were first established, along with the concomitant racial stereotypes. As a new opioid epidemic sweeps through white working- and middle-class communities, it brings us back to when heroin first arrived on the streets of Harlem in the 1940s. And as we debate and grapple with the gross racial disparities of mass incarceration, it puts into sharp and provocative focus the racism at the very roots of our drug war. Having spent a lifetime at the nexus of drugs and music, Torgoff reveals material never before disclosed and offers new insights, crafting and contextualizing Bop Apocalypse into a truly novel contribution to our understanding of jazz, race, literature, drug culture, and American social and cultural history.

75 years of Capitol Records
Golden, Reuel, editor
Köln : Taschen, [2016]
From the Beatles to Beck, Sinatra to Sam Smith, a parade of era-defining artists have passed through the doors of the Capitol Records Tower, one of Hollywood's most distinctive landmarks and home to one of the world's most defining labels for the past 75 years. To commemorate this extraordinary history of recorded music, TASCHEN presents this official account of Capitol Records, from its founding year of 1942 to today. With a foreword by Beck, essays by cultural historians and music and architecture critics, as well as hundreds of images from Capitol's extensive archives, we follow the label's evolution and the making of some of the greatest music of the 20th and 21st centuries. Through pop, rock, country, classical, soul, and jazz, the photographic and musical history includes the label's most sucessful, cool, hip, and creative stars, as well as the one-hit wonders who had their all-too-brief moments in the spotlight.
