Elliott Carter now -- Remembering Mr. Carter (a double portrait) -- A brief life of a very long life -- A modernistic education (1924-1935) -- Musician, wrestling (1935-1946) -- Turning points (1946-1948) -- Back to modernism. Back to futurism. Back to New York (1948-1975) -- Carter vs. poets (round 1) -- Macro Carter/Micro Carter (1983-1999) -- Multi-vehicle accidents -- Bagatelles -- Carter vs. poets (round 2) -- Farewell symphonies -- Epilogue: "Every note has life in it."

This text surveys the life and work of the great American composer Elliott Carter (1908-2012). It examines his formative, and often ambivalent, engagements with Charles Ives and other 'ultra-modernists', with the classicist ideas he encountered at Harvard and in his three years of study with Nadia Boulanger in Paris; and with the populism developed by his friends Aaron Copland and Marc Blitzstein in Depression-era New York, and the unique synthesis of modernist idioms that he began to develop in the late 1940s.

Local fusions : folk music experiments in Central Europe at the millennium
Lange, Barbara Rose, 1955- author
New York, NY : Oxford University Press, [2018]
"Good old days": critiques of masculinity in the Hungarian folk revival -- Ági Szalóki and multiethnic femininity -- Autobiography, sexuality, and ethnicity in the music of Bea Palya -- Banda and the Slovak folk revival -- Urban nostalgia in the music of Požoň sentimentál -- Slovak folk song, Romani pop, and outer space in the music of Hudba z Marsu -- Recuperating the alpine image in Austrian music -- Local identity, world music 2.0, and electronic dance music -- Sampling and commercialization in Danubian trances and Boheme -- Epilogue.

In Local fusions, author Barbara Rose Lange explores musical life in Hungary, Slovakia, and Austria between the end of the Cold War and the world financial crisis of 2008. With case studies from Budapest, Bratislava, and Vienna, the book looks at the ways that artists generated social commentary and tried new ways of working together as the political and economic atmosphere shifted during this time. Drawn from a variety of sources, the case studies illustrate how young musicians redefined a Central European history of elevating the arts by fusing poetry, local folk music, and other vernacular music with jazz, Asian music, art music, and electronic dance music. Their projects rejected exclusion based on ethnic background or gender prevalent in Central Europe's present far-right political movements, and instead embraced diverse modes of expression. Through this, the musicians asserted woman power, broadened masculinities, and declared affinity with regional minorities such as the Romani people.

Treatise on musical objects : an essay across disciplines
Schaeffer, Pierre, 1910-1995, author
Oakland, California : University of California Press, [2017]
The Treatise on musical objects and the GRM / Daniel Teruggi -- Translator's introduction / Christine North -- Pierre Schaeffer's Treatise on musical objects and music theory / John Dack -- Preface -- Book one. Making music. The instrumental prerequisite ; Playing an instrument ; Capturing sounds ; Acousmatics -- Book two. Hearing. "What can be heard" ; The four listening modes ; Scientific prejudice ; The hearing intention -- Book three. Correlations between the physical signal and the musical object. Ambiguities in musical acoustics ; Correlation between spectra and pitches ; Thresholds and transients ; Temporal anamorphoses I: timbres and dynamics ; Temporal anamorphoses II: timbre and instrument ; Time and duration -- Book four. Objects and structures. Reduction to the object ; Perceptual structures ; Comparative structures: music and language ; The conventional musical system: musicality and sonority ; Natural sound structures: musicianly listening ; The reduced listening system: musical dualism ; Musical research -- Book five. Morphology and typology of sound objects. Morphology of sound objects ; The laboratory ; Typology of musical objects (I): classification criteria ; Typology of musical objects (II): balanced and redundant objects ; Typology of musical objects (III): eccentric sounds ; Working at our instrument -- Book six. Theory of musical objects. Musical experience ; Generalizing music theory ; Theory of homogeneous sounds: criterion of mass ; Theory of fixed masses: dynamic criterion ; Theory of sustainment ; Theory of variations ; Analysis of the musical object as it generally appears -- Book seven. Music as a discipline. Implementation ; The meaning of music -- Penultimate chapter : in search of music itself -- Postscript.

"The Treatise on musical objects by Pierre Schaeffer is regarded as his most important work on music and its relationship with technology. Schaeffer refers to his earlier research in musique concrète and expands this to suggest a methodology of working with sounds resulting from the recording process. Drawing on acoustics, physics, and physiology, but also philosophy and the relationship between subject and object, Schaeffer's book summarizes his theoretical and practical work in music composition. North and Dack present an important book in the history of ideas in Europe that will resonate far beyond electroacoustic music."--Provided by publisher.

Eisa is an Okinawan music-dance folk form that features drumming and song accompanied by sanshin lute in choreographed mass formations of 30 to100 participants. It documents day long Eisa Festivals held by the Banyan Association in the Taisho Ward of Osaka, presumably in 2000 and 2002.

The symphony of seduction : the great love stories of classical composers
Lawrence, Christopher, 1956- author
Carlton, Vic. Nero, an imprint of Schwartz Publishing, 2018
A pear-shaped affair -- Love makes war -- The return to life -- Dark love -- Loved to death -- Scandal goes west -- Mazurka in a teaspoon -- Bustle with the Bäsle -- Pleasure is the law -- It's not you, it's me -- The unknown island.

"Berlioz should know. He didn't just hear the symphony when he fell in love with an Irish actress back in 1827, he wrote it. What was love like for the people who could really feel that song coming on? Symphony of Seduction tells of the romantic misadventures, tragedies and occasional triumphs of some of classical music's great composers, and traces the music that emerged as a result.For the eccentric Erik Satie, love came just once - and even then, not for long. Robert Schumann had to take his future father-in-law to court to win the right to marry. Hector Berlioz planned to murder a two-timing fiancée while dressed in drag, and Richard Wagner turned the temptation of adultery into a stage work that changed the course of music while rupturing his own marriage. Debussy's love triangle, Brahms' love for the wife of his insane mentor - all find expression in works we now consider to be some of the summits of creative achievement.Christopher Lawrence takes what we know about these love-crazed geniuses and adds a garnish of imagined pillow talk to recreate stories that are ultimately stranger than fiction - and come with a great soundtrack."--

Giulio Cesare in Egitto : Oper in 3 Akten
von Georg Friedrich Händel ; Arte France, Clasart Classic, Bel Air Media, Salzburger Festspiele ; producers, Herbert G. Kloiber, François Duplat
London, England : Decca, [2016]
Is a drama in three acts composed for the Royal Academy of Music by George Frideric Handel in 1724. The libretto was written by Nicola Francesco Haym who used an earlier libretto by Giacomo Francesco Bussani, which had been set to music by Antonio Sartorio (1676). The opera was a success at its first performances, was frequently revived by Handel in his subsequent opera seasons and is now one of the most often performed Baroque operas. The opera's plot is loosely based on historic events during the Roman Civil War of 4945 BC.

The Montpellier codex, the final fascicle : contents, context, chronologies
edited by Catherine A. Bradley, Karen Desmond
Rochester, NY : The Boydell Press, 2018
"The Montpellier Codex (Montpellier, Biliothèque interuniversitaire, Bibliothèque universitaire de médecine, H. 196) occupies a central place in the scholarship on medieval music. This small book, packed with gorgeous gold leaf illuminations, historiated initials, and exquisite music calligraphy, is one of the most famous of all surviving music manuscripts, fundamental to understandings of the development of thirteenth- and fourteenth-century polyphonic composition. At some point in its history an eighth section (fascicle) of 48 folios was appended to the codex: when and why this happened has long perplexed scholars. The forty-three works contained in the manuscript's final section represent a collection of musical compositions, assembled at a complex moment of historical change, straddling the historiographical juncture between the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. This book provides the first in-depth exploration of the contents and contexts of the Montpellier Code's final fascicle. It explores the manuscript's production, dating, function, and notation, offering close-readings of individual works, which illuminate compositionally progressive features of the repertoire as well as its interactions with existing musical and poetic traditions, from a variety of perspectives: thirteenth- and fourteenth-century music, art history, and manuscript culture." -- Publisher's description

Concise history of western music
Hanning, Barbara Russano, 1940- author
New York : W.W. Norton & Company, [2014]
Part one. The ancient and medieval worlds -- Part two. The age of the renaissance -- Part three. The long seventeenth century -- Part four. The eighteenth century -- Part five. The nineteenth century: the age of romanticism -- Part six. The twentieth century and today.

This text based on Donald Jay Grout and Claude V. Palisca's A History of Western Music, Ninth Edition, is perfect for those who seek an authoritative, readable text that is more succinct than the parent book. Concise History of Western Music combines Grout and Palisca's uncompromising reliability, scope, and respect for the narrative, while offering many more pedagogical aids, such as chapter preludes and postludes; "Etudes," excursions that explore the material more deeply than the main text; and "Windows," boxed discussions of special topics. This book also includes numerous vignettes (quotations by musicians and writers), illustrations, diagrams, music examples, sideheads, chronologies, and a glossary.

As serious as your life : Black music and the free jazz revolution, 1957-1977
Wilmer, Valerie, author
London : Serpent's Tail, 2018
"As essential now as when it was first published in 1977, As Serious As Your Life celebrates jazz with passion and conviction. Covering the dynamic period 1960-1976, Valerie Wilmer powerfully evokes a remarkable revolutionary musical era that continues to inspire generations of musicians. Valerie Wilmer evaluates the musical careers of both the famous names of the time - Albert Ayler, Ornette Coleman, John Coltrane, Pharoah Sanders, Sun Ra and Cecil Taylor - and those of less well-known artists. It is her unique approach - placing the 'new jazz' in its political and social context - that makes As Serious As Your Life a classic of jazz criticism."--Publisher's description.
