In this welcome addition to the immensely popular Yale Broadway Masters series, Larry Starr focuses fresh attention on George Gershwin's Broadway contributions and examines their centrality to the composer's entire career. Starr presents Gershwin as a composer with a unified musical vision-a vision developed on Broadway and used as a source of strength in his well-known concert music. In turn, Gershwin's concert-hall experience enriched and strengthened his musicals, leading eventually to his great "Broadway opera," Porgy and Bess. Through the prism of three major shows-Lady Be Good (1924), Of Thee I Sing (1931), and Porgy and Bess (1935)-Starr highlights Gershwin's distinctive contributions to the evolution of the Broadway musical. In addition, the author considers Gershwin's musical language, his compositions for the concert hall, and his movie scores for Hollywood in the light of his Broadway experience.

The Dickinson Songs of Aaron Copland (Paperback, Annotated edition): Larry Starr The Dickinson Songs of Aaron Copland (Paperback, Annotated edition)
Larry Starr
R895 Discovery Miles 8 950 Special order

There could be no more fitting subject for the opening volume of this endeavor than Copland's Twelve Poems of Emily Dickinson . Long a favourite of performers and audiences alike, this inimitable cycle of art songs created at mid-century by a highly distinctive voice in American music pays tribute to one of America's revered poets, herself a pioneer of "the modern" on her own terms. Professor Starr convincingly identifies the shared aesthetic affinities of the poet and the composer in spite of the social, artistic, and chronological gaps that separated them and explains the pivotal nature of the work in Copland's output. He then sensitively describes the singular musical solutions devised for each poem, all the while emphasizing the composer's respect for the idiosyncrasies of Dickinson's verse. Commentary on the original version for soprano and piano is supplemented by information on Copland's later orchestrations for selected songs, a discussion of performance and interpretation, and details concerning the work's history on recordings. For the reader's convenience a compact disc with performances of Twelve Poems by Adele Addison with the composer himself at the keyboard and of Eight Poems by Barbara Hendricks and the London Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Michael Tilson Thomas is included with the text.
