Understanding Mozart s Piano Sonatas

Mozart's piano sonatas are among the most familiar of his works and stand alongside those of Haydn and Beethoven as staples of the pianist's repertoire. In this study, John Irving looks at a wide selection of contextual situations for Mozart's sonatas, focusing on the variety of ways in which they assume identities and achieve meanings. In particular, the book seeks to establish the provisionality of the sonatas' notated texts, suggesting that the texts are not so much identifiers as possibilities and that their identity resides in the usage. Close attention is paid to reception matters, analytical approaches, organology, the role of autograph manuscripts, early editions and editors, and aspects of historical performance practice - all of which go beyond the texts in opening windows onto Mozart's sonatas. Treating the sonatas collectively as a repertoire, rather than as individual works, the book surveys broad thematic issues such as the role of historical writing about music in defining a generic space for Mozart's sonatas, their construction within pedagogical traditions, the significance of sound as opposed to sight in these works (and in particular their sound on fortepianos of the later eighteenth-century) , and the creative role of the performer in their representation beyond the frame of the text. Drawing together and synthesizing this wealth of material, Irving provides an invaluable reference source for those already familiar with this repertoire.

Mozart s Piano Music

Mozart's emergence as a mature artist coincides with the rise to prominence of the piano, an instrument that came alive under his fingers and served as medium for many of his finest compositions. In Mozart's Piano Music, William Kinderman reconsiders common assumptions about Mozart's life and art while offering comprehensive and incisive commentary on the solo music and concertos. After placing Mozart's pianistic legacy in its larger biographical and cultural context, Kinderman addresses the lively gestural and structural aspects of Mozart's musical language and explores the nature of his creative process. Incorporating the most recent research throughout this encompassing study, Kinderman expertly surveys each of the major genres of the keyboard music, including the four-hand and two-piano works. Beyond examining issues such as Mozart's earliest childhood compositions, his musical rhetoric and expression, the social context of his Viennese concertos, and affinities between his piano works and operas, Kinderman's main emphasis falls on detailed discussion of selected individual compositions.

Mozart    a challenge for literature and thought

Schon zu seinen Lebzeiten, verstärkt aber in der Romantik und bis in die Gegenwart, hat Mozarts Leben und Werk Schriftsteller und Philosophen zu produktiver Auseinandersetzung angeregt. Zentraler Ausgangspunkt für die poetisch-intellektuelle Rezeption Mozarts war wiederholt sein Don Giovanni, aber auch seine das Geniehafte prototypisch symbolisierende Persönlichkeit. Dieser Band, der aus einer am Queen Mary College der University of London im April 2006 abgehaltenen Tagung hervorgegangen ist, vereinigt exemplarische Studien dieser literar-philosophischen, aber auch musik- und kulturkritischen Arbeit am Mozart-Mythos und seiner (versuchten) Entzauberung. Already during his lifetime but even more so during Romanticism and up to the present day writers and philosophers have been inspired by Mozart's life and work. Don Giovanni has repeatedly served as the central starting point for such poetic and intellectual engagement but also the composer's personality which epitomizes the notion of the genius-artist. This volume contains the proceedings of a conference held at Queen Mary College, University of London, in April 2006. The contributors discuss the Mozart myth with regard to its literary, philosophical and cultural implications as well as its attempted disenchantment.

Think Like Beethoven

Thousands of years in the future, in settlements lightyears away from Earth, mankind will continue to benefit from the work of Ludwig van Beethoven. Acoustics, resonances, atmospheres and air pressures, gravitational fields, even instruments might change, but Beethoven’s creativity and inspiration to creativity will still burst forth with overwhelming power. A leading role in the spread of Beethoven’s influence over the progress of mankind, will have been played by the genius of Lyndon LaRouche. LaRouche insisted that genius can be taught (or evoked as Plato demonstrated in his famous Meno dialogue with a slave boy). You too, can think like Beethoven. And thinking like Beethoven can have life-changing and world-changing effects! Beethoven’s approach to music has application to every aspect of the advancement of civilization. Here in the 250th anniversary year of Beethoven’s birth, we present six works of Lyndon LaRouche which make Beethoven’s methodology intelligible to you—so that you can make Beethoven a living part of your thinking process, and so that you can make your own immortal contributions to civilization.

The Creative Process in Music from Mozart to Kurtag

"In this intriguing study, William Kinderman opens the door to the composer's workshop, investigating not just the final outcome but the process of creative endeavour in music. Focusing on the stages of composition, Kinderman maintains that the most rigorous basis for the study of artistic creativity comes not from anecdotal or autobiographical reports, but from original handwritten sketches, drafts, revised manuscripts, and corrected proof sheets. He explores works of major composers from the eighteenth century to the present, from Mozart's piano music and Beethoven's Piano Trio in F to Kurtag's Kafka Fragments and Hommage a R. Sch. Other chapters examine Robert Schumann's Fantasie in C, Mahler's Fifth Symphony, and Bartok's Dance Suite. Revealing the diversity of sources, rejected passages and movements, fragmentary unfinished works, and aborted projects that were absorbed into finished compositions, The Creative Process in Music from Mozart to Kurtag illustrates the wealth of insight that can be gained through studying the creative process." -- Blackwells.

Wondrous Strange

The first major biography of Glenn Gould to stress the critical influence of the Canadian context on his life and art Glenn Gould was not, as has previously been suggested, an isolated and self-taught eccentric who burst out of nowhere onto the international musical scene in the mid-1950s. He was, says Kevin Bazzana in this fascinating new full-scale biography, very much a product of his time and place – and his entire life and diverse work reflect his Canadian heritage. Bazzana, editor of the international Glenn Gould magazine, throws fresh light on this and many other aspects of Gould’s celebrated life as a pianist, writer, broadcaster, and composer. He portrays Gould’s upbringing in Toronto’s neighbourhood of The Beach in the 1930s, revealing the area’s influence as a distinct social, religious, and cultural milieu. He looks at the impact of Canadian radio on the young musician, his relations with the “new music” crowd in Toronto, and the ways in which his career was furthered by the extraordinary growth of Canada’s cultural institutions in the 1950s. He examines Gould’s place within the CBC “culture” of the 1960s and ‘70s, and his distinctly Canadian sense of humour. Bazanna also reveals new information on Gould’s famous eccentricities, his sometimes bizarre stage manner, his highly selective repertoire, his control mania, his private and sexual life, his hypochondria, his romanticism, and his abrupt retirement from concert performance to communicate solely through electronic and print media. And finally, he takes a detailed look at the extraordinary phenomenon of the posthumous “life” that Gould and his work have enjoyed.

The Ashgate Research Companion to Henry Purcell

The Ashgate Research Companion to Henry Purcell provides a comprehensive and authoritative review of current research into Purcell and the environment of Restoration music, with contributions from leading experts in the field. Seen from the perspective of modern, interdisciplinary approaches to scholarship, the companion allows the reader to develop a rounded view of the environment in which Purcell lived, the people with whom he worked, the social conditions that influenced his activities, and the ways in which the modern perception of him has been affected by reception of his music after his death. In this sense the contributions do not privilege the individual over the environment: rather, they use the modern reader's familiarity with Purcell's music as a gateway into the broader Restoration world. Topics include a reassessment of our understanding of Purcell's sources and the transmission of his music; new ways of approaching the study of his creative methods; performance practice; the multi-faceted theatre environment in which his work was focused in the last five years of his life; the importance of the political and social contexts of late seventeenth-century England; and the ways in which the performance history and reception of his music have influenced modern appreciation of the composer. The book will be essential reading for anyone studying the music and culture of the seventeenth century.
