(Vocal Collection). With a graceful gift for lyrical vocal writing, English composer Roger Quilter (1877-1953) created a rich body of art songs. Very few composers working in English have matched his achievement of a living body of beloved, relevant, literate repertoire. The strong melodies and natural phrasing make his compositions perfect literature for the progressing singer. There has never before this publication been a significant collection of Quilter. This new edition conveniently and economically collects 55 songs, all in clear, new music engravings and in two keys (with original keys noted). Many of the songs have never been published in transposition before this edition. The collection contains several complete song sets or cycles, including To Julia, Three Shakespeare Songs (First Set), Seven Elizabethan Lyrics, Three Songs of William Blake, Five Shakespeare Songs (Second Set), and others. 232 pages.

Serial Music, Serial Aesthetics - Compositional Theory in Post-War Europe (Hardcover): M. J. Grant Serial Music, Serial Aesthetics - Compositional Theory in Post-War Europe (Hardcover)
M. J. Grant
R1,454 Discovery Miles 14 540 Out of stock

Composers of serial music in post-war Europe wrote almost as much about music as the music itself, but the relationship between theory and practice in the work of key figures like Stockhausen, Eimert, Pousseur and Schnebel has often been misrepresented. Focusing on the controversial journal Die Reihe, this book traces serialism's cultural history, its debt to the artistic theories of Klee and Mondrian, and its relationship to contemporary developments in concrete art, poetry and information aesthetics. It sketches a aesthetic theory of serialism as an experimental music.
