cover Die Orgel Im Altertum by Michael Markovits
This monumental history of the organ in antiquity provides a wide overview of the technical development, use and recognition of the organ as an instrument. The interdisciplinary study relies on a comprehensive collection of literary works and archaeological monuments from Hellenistic, Roman, Jewish, Early Byzantine, Syrian and Western civilization ranging from 270 B.C. to 630 A.D., and discusses the survival of this rich heritage in Byzantium, the Islam and the Latin Middle Ages until about 1200.

cover Who Was Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart? by Yona Zeldis McDonough, Carrie Robbins
Born in Austria in 1756, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart composed his first piece of music, a minuet, when he was just five years old! Soon after, he was performing for kings and emperors. Although he died at the young age of thirty-five, Mozart left a legacy of more than 600 works. This fascinating biography charts the musician's extraordinary career and personal life while painting a vivid cultural history of eighteenth-century Europe. Black-and-white illustrations on every spread explore such topics as the history of opera and the evolution of musical instruments. There is also a timeline and a bibliography.

cover William Grant Still: African-American Composer by Catherine Reef

cover The Benedictine Gift to Music by Katharine Le Mee
Western music originates in the Gregorian chant sung in Benedictine monasteries as early as the sixth century. This fascinating book illustrates how this sung liturgy of prayer and praise, faithfully practiced daily in monasteries across Europe, developed into the complex polyphonic music we enjoy today.

cover The Music Lover's Quotation Book by David W. Barber
"I would much rather have written the best song of a nation than its noblest epic." -- Edgar Allan Poe. This collection of wise, witty and wonderful words by and about musicians of all kinds and styles contains hundreds of entries. The Music Lover's Quotation Book brings together memorable words and quips from composers, performers, writers, listeners, critics and fans. The book covers a wide range of musical genres and time periods from classical masters to jazz legends to country crooners to the bad boys of hip-hop and rap. "You can't cheat in mathematics or poetry or music," John Steinbeck writes in Sweet Thursday, "because they're based on truth." There is certainly truth to be found in this collection of quotes along with humor, sadness, wisdom and insight. Whatever your musical tastes or interests, The Music Lover's Quotation Book will entertain, amuse and enlighten you.

cover Franz Schubert: Music and Belief by Leo Black
Remarkable new study...Its central submission, that we have hitherto disregarded or mininterpreted the most profound intuitions of a unique composer, certainly carries conviction. And even after one reading there are already musical passages that this Schubert enthusiast find himself hearing in quite a new way. Bayan Northcott, BBC MUSIC MAGAZINE A sensitive and richly allusive commentary... likely to change the way we listen to certain works. Brian NewbouldThe old stereotypes of Schubert as Bohemian artist and unselfconscious creator have been replaced over the past half-century with a picture of a difficult man in difficult times. The author aims to redress the balance, concentrating firstly on works where Schubert's beliefs are clearly expressed (masses, other religious music, songs amounting to Geistliche Lieder). This also prompts an examination of instrumental masterpieces (Unfinished and Great C Major Symphonies, and the Wanderer Fantasy), which show that Schubert's religious side encompasses awe and terror as well as wonder. Schubert's `complete voice' is thus clearly heard, rather than the sombre one currently emphasised in both literature and concert.LEO BLACK is a former BBC chief producer for music.

cover What Every Pianist Needs to Know About the Body by Thomas Mark, Roberta Gary, Thom Miles
Techniques on how to gain greater fluidity of movement while playing to improve the quality of the experience are offered in this manual for serious piano players. This book encourages musicians to develop a broader understanding of the involvement of the entire body in playing-and the strains playing places on the body-by focusing on body mapping to increase awareness of the body's function, size, and structure. Ways in which piano, organ, harpsichord, clavichord, and digital keyboard players can eliminate or prevent carpal tunnel syndrome and other debilitating conditions without traditional medical treatments are also explored.

cover Baroque Music for Brass and Organ
On this CD:
Take a fine organist, a crack brass ensemble, bathe in wide-ranging, vivid sound, and you've got a recipe for an exciting disc. That's what Telarc has done in this recording of a live concert by the Empire Brass Quintet in effective arrangements of Baroque favorites and rarities. It may seem odd to hear a Handel Violin Sonata or a Telemann Trio Sonata played by a brass-organ combo, but it works thanks to clever arrangements and superb playing. A highlight here is the Largo of the Handel work, where marvelous horn and trombone solos enhance its beauties. And of course, such favorites as Jeremiah Clarke's Trumpet Voluntary and the Prince of Denmark's March join Campra's stately Rigaudon and other stirring processional pieces. The SACD version adds another level of air and bite, but the CD layer of this hybrid disc is demonstration quality too.
