  • Music Received
    • Abstract: This column presents a comprehensive list of new music publications that have been sent recently by publishers and distributors for possible review in Notes. Additionally, the list has been supplemented with selective items extracted from the Theodore Front Musical Literature, Inc. webpage. Self-published music is listed when a source of acquisition is provided. The primary aim of this column is to provide brief listings of a broad range of new editions of music, thereby assisting in selection and ordering for libraries or personal collections. After the listing is prepared, the publications are sent selectively to Keith Cochran, the "Music Reviews" column editor. Many thanks to Paul Schubert and Julia Harbutt for ... Read More

  • Spirited Wind Playing: The Performance Dimension by Kim Walker (review)
    • Abstract: Major life setbacks such as injury, illness, or loss—be they physical, mental, or both—often compel us to reassess how we approach our music making. This was the case for Kim Walker, who, after a horrific accident, began a voyage of rediscovery in order to find her way back to the playing excellence that had her enrolled in the Curtis Institute of Music, working with major pedagogues, and playing bassoon with top orchestras. How do we play our wind instruments' What do we do in our minds as well as with our bodies that can get in the way of progress and enjoyment' These are some of the questions that she not only found answers to but also codified in this workbook. The fact that she employed these ideas on her own ... Read More

  • Trumpets and Other High Brass: A History Inspired by the Joe R. and Joella
           F. Utley Collection. Volume 3: Valves Evolve by Sabine Katharina Klaus
           (review)
    • Abstract: Sabine Katharina Klaus's projected five-volume series surveys the technical development of the high-pitched brass instruments of Western music since antiquity. Klaus uses brass in its conventional sense to mean aerophones with lip-vibrated air columns, regardless of the material forming the tube. Volume 1 (2012), which won the Nicholas Bessaraboff Prize of the American Musical Instrument Society, introduces simple instruments from various cultures, limited to pitches of a single harmonic series. Volume 2 (2013) explores ways to expand the harmonic series by means of crooks, slides, tone holes, or keys. Forthcoming volumes include Heyday of the Cornet, and the final volume will cover the modern trumpet and its ... Read More

  • The Oxford Handbook of Choral Pedagogy ed. by Frank Abrahams and Paul D.
           Head (review)
    • Abstract: In this book, editors Frank Abrahams and Paul D. Head present a jumping-off point, if not a definition, for choral pedagogy. They acknowledge that the volume is not exhaustive or conclusive, an odd description considering its length, its number of chapters, and the array of topics it covers. To my knowledge, this handbook is peerless: while there are many books that focus more narrowly on rehearsal techniques or building a successful choral program, this volume distinguishes itself by addressing a wide range of current issues in choral pedagogy. In their introduction, the editors refer to the landmark publication by Harold A. Decker and Julius Herford, Choral Conducting: A Symposium (New York: ... Read More

  • I Sang the Unsingable: My Life in Twentieth-Century Music by Bethany
           Beardslee, with Minna Zallman Proctor (review)
    • Abstract: Bethany Beardslee, known as the voice of the duo Philomel for voice and synthesizer by Milton Babbitt, as well as for performing the American premieres of Igor Stravinsky's Threni and Alban Berg's Altenberg Lieder, shares the excitement and challenges of her forty-six-year career as a vocalist devoted to the music of her time in her memoir, I Sang the Unsingable: My Life in Twentieth-Century Music. Beardslee divides her life story into five parts, the first covering her childhood in East Lansing, Michigan, through her college education at Michigan State, where she majored in music, but only after considering science, Spanish, and history. The subsequent two sections are titled after her two great loves: "The ... Read More

  • The Ballad of John Latouche: An American Lyricist's Life and Work by
           Howard Pollack (review)
    • Abstract: Howard Pollack has written a number of authoritative studies—of important musical theater personalities, including Marc Blitzstein and George Gershwin, and perhaps most famously of composer Aaron Copland. It might seem surprising, then, to find him penning a large tome on the little-known lyricist John Latouche, who died at the age of forty-one in 1956. Latouch never had a "major hit" in the sense that we think of other lyricists Ira Gershwin, Oscar Hammerstein II, or composer-lyricist Stephen Sondheim and would be familiar to the average theater-going audience for being the lyricist first involved in Leonard Bernstein's and Lillian Hellman's Candide (1956), for Douglas Moore's The Ballad of Baby Doe (1956), and ...

  • The Great Woman Singer: Gender and Voice in Puerto Rican Music by Licia
           Fiol-Matta (review)
    • Abstract: This deeply researched and thoughtful book considers several iconic Puerto Rican singers of the twentieth century: Myrta Silva, Ruth Fernández, Ernestina Reyes, and Lucecita Benítez. As might be expected in any critical biography, Licia Fiol-Matta explores the lives, music, and influence of each artist within the complicated context of Puerto Rico's colonial modernity, paying special attention to the ways that gender, sexuality, race, and class affected these pop stars. At that, one could argue, this book would be a significant contribution. Uncovering significant but overlooked female pop artists is a difficult but worthy task, and the history of Latin American popular music suffers a relative lack of feminist and ... Read More

  • Pat Metheny: The ECM Years, 1975–1984 by Mervyn Cooke (review)
    • Abstract: Pat Metheny: The ECM Years, 1975–1984 traces the development of Metheny's style as a guitarist, improviser, and composer during the formative part of his career. Examining the eleven albums he created on the ECM label during a span of eight years (1976–84), this study presents an engrossing assessment of Metheny's style, development, and philosophy on jazz. Cooke sets out to explore three main concepts: "the fundamental notion of a 'new paradigm' capable of keeping jazz relevant"; the "increasing symbiotic relationship between improvisation and composition"; and finally, "the various strategies through which a linear model for musical narrative was constantly varied" (p. 26).Cooke provides context for how Metheny's ...

  • The Pop Palimpsest: Intertextuality in Recorded Popular Music ed. by Lori
           Burns and Serge Lacasse (review)
    • Abstract: "Good artists borrow; great artists steal." Variations of this aphorism have been attributed to luminaries from a variety of fields, including T. S. Eliot (poetry), Pablo Picasso (visual arts), Igor Stravinsky (music), and William Faulkner (fiction). Not only does this quote imply that a fundamental aspect of creating art involves appropriation from previous works, it also implies that the success of artists (and their work) is strongly related to the skill of this appropriation. To fully assess and understand any work of art, therefore, we presumably need to identify and evaluate the ways in which it takes from the old and makes it new. This guiding principle underpins The Pop Palimpsest, an interdisciplinary ... Read More

  • Improvisation and Social Aesthetics ed. by Georgina Born, Eric Lewis, and
           Will Straw (review)
    • Abstract: Improvisation is a tricky topic. By nature, improvisation is changeable, of the moment; once fixed in notation or recording, improvised music is no longer improvisatory. The literature on improvisation began with early, mostly philosophical essays by practitioners such as John Stevens, Cornelius Cardew, Wadada Leo Smith, and Anthony Braxton. Derek Bailey's Improvisation: Its Nature and Practice in Music (Ashbourne, UK: Moorland, 1980), a survey of Indian, Baroque, jazz, pop, and free improvisation, is the most comprehensive of these early works. Later works are more narrowly focused. David Borgo's Sync or Swarm: Improvising Music in a Complex Age (New York: Continuum, 2005) presents a universalist proposal about ... Read More

  • Beethoven & Freedom by Daniel K L Chua (review)
    • Abstract: Ludwig van Beethoven was the first independent musical artist, beholden to neither church (like his idol, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart) nor state (like his teacher, Joseph Haydn). He liberated music from the formal, generic, and aesthetic constraints of the late eighteenth century, and in doing so set the nineteenth century on a path of extraordinary, albeit often controversial, musical change. An unbroken string of personal hardships—an abusive father, several thwarted loves, and an ill-fated attempt at brokering a family through guardianship of his nephew—punctuated a biography set against the political upheavals of the French Revolution, Napoleon I, and Clemens Wenzel Lothar Metternich's Vienna. Yet he persevered ... Read More

  • Metamorphosis in Music: The Compositions of György Ligeti in the 1950s
           and 1960s by Benjamin R. Levy (review)
    • Abstract: Long a devotee of György Ligeti's compositional theories, aesthetics, and practices, Benjamin Levy has published a book that tells the story of the composer's development up to about 1970. What makes Levy's efforts stand out is his detailed and comprehensive study of Ligeti's sketches. By arranging the composer's works chronologically, Levy narrates the evolution—or, as he puts it, "stylistic transformation" (p. 6)—of Ligeti's compositional techniques from his student days in Hungary to the full flourishing of his career as an internationally recognized artist.Levy argues for the necessity of studying Ligeti's sketches, because the theoretical systems he employed are complex and cannot be entirely appreciated or ...

With this bold statement, composer and former new-music critic Kyle Gann embarks on over four hundred pages of detailed textual and musical analysis of anything and everything related to Charles Ives's monumental Piano Sonata no. 2, "Concord, Mass., 1840–1860."

    • Abstract: Benjamin Britten Studies: Essays on an Inexplicit Art, volume 12 of the Aldeburgh Studies in Music series edited by Nicholas Clark, is a collection of fifteen writings on the life and works of Benjamin Britten. Editors Vicki P. Stroeher and Justin Vickers explain the volume's title and its invocation of inexplicitness by drawing on Britten's own words: "But music is an inexplicit art, and what one person thinks is good doesn't necessarily seem music of goodness to someone else" (p. xxv, quoted from Paul Kildea, ed., Britten on Music [Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2003], 199). They admit that since music can mean different things to different people, it is inadequate as a purely symbolic medium. At the same time ... Read More

Though he had no formal music education, Newman, as Watt notes, "was one of the most significant—and controversial—music critics and biographers of his generation" (p. 14). Early in his career, he was a leading champion of British music, particularly that of Granville Bantock, Edward Elgar, and Joseph Holbrooke. While his support of native music diminished as his career progressed, his interest in German music of the late nineteenth century (e.g., Richard Strauss and Hugo Wolf), Richard Wagner, and opera remained steadfast throughout his life. Using Newman as a lens, Watt provides a thoughtful study of ... Read More

           1893–1921: "Our New Dawn of Modern Music." ed. by Michael Allis (review)
           
    • Abstract: Having completed their studies at the Royal Academy of Music (RAM) in the early 1890s, Granville Bantock and William Wallace set out to revolutionize British music, producing explicitly Wagnerian works such as Bantock's one-act Celtic opera Caedmar and Wallace's Pre-Raphaelite symphonic poem The Passing of Beatrice (both premiered in 1892). The pair would soon form part of what may be viewed as a larger group of composers that also included Joseph Holbrooke, Rutland Boughton, and Arnold Bax. Connected personally either by their studies at RAM or through their association with the Midland Institute's School of Music in Birmingham, their music was also united by its (post-)Wagnerian, Lisztian, Straussian, and later ...

  • Gypsy Music: The Balkans and Beyond by Alan Ashton-Smith (review)
    • Abstract: My own experiences as a musician and academic specializing in the music of Greece and the southern Balkans suggest to me that many Euro-American listeners are quick to label certain pieces of music, performances, or sonic textures as "gypsy," but very few are able to articulate why certain sounds suggest that term—beyond vaguely defined tropes of wildness, mystery, and abandon. Alan Ashton-Smith's Gypsy Music: The Balkans and Beyond seeks to address this persistent Western fascination with stereotypes of Romani music and musicians—from Romantic composers and authors to the folk-punk and electronic fusion scenes—while also allowing room for a variety of Romani perspectives.The book is part of Reaktion's Reverb ...

Although the appearance was nearly ten years ago, some news outlets referred back to Putin's appearance on Muz-TV to contextualize his recent comments on Russian rap. In a meeting with cultural advisors on 15 December 2018, Putin declared that rap music in Russia should be controlled by the state. Reactions to and commentaries on Putin's declaration were varied.

  • Jazz Italian Style: From Its Origins in New Orleans to Fascist Italy and
           Sinatra by Anna Harwell Celenza (review)
    • Abstract: Anna Celenza's Jazz Italian Style begins with a brief description of a Frank Sinatra recording made in 1935 with the Hoboken Four, a vocal group he had recently joined. Celenza notes that the nineteen-year-old Sinatra was clearly imitating the most popular vocalists of the day, particularly Bing Crosby and the Mills Brothers. Four years pass before Sinatra is recorded again, and Celenza believes that during this time, Sinatra creates his renowned vocal style. The author uses this brief period to frame an exploration into the musical world that influenced Sinatra, namely Italian jazz, and launches her inquiry with a chapter on the musical contributions by Italian immigrants to the origins of jazz.Celenza's ...

    • Abstract: The piano was Claude Debussy's instrument, and we know from numerous contemporary sources that he was an outstanding pianist, even though he seldom performed in public. Beginning in the mid-1890s, and especially with the composition of the three orchestral nocturnes, Debussy, like Robert Schumann sixty years earlier, began to give descriptive or extramusically suggestive titles to his works, eventually to the point that titles became "impressionist" in the manner of the works of French painters—and this as much as any other factor influenced his being identified as an "impressionist composer." Characteristic titles appear in La mer and in his piano music, beginning with the Estampes and two series of Images and ... Read More

A distinct contribution to the musicological literature, Sposato's book focuses on the musical atmosphere in Leipzig after the time of Bach, activating his expertise in late eighteenth-century and nineteenth-century music, the era at the heart of his first book, The Price of Assimilation: Felix Mendelssohn and the Nineteenth-Century Anti-Semitic Tradition (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2005).

Socially, too, he was unusual: not many members of the nobility practiced music as intensely as he did—Count Alfonso Fontanelli, whom he knew at Ferrara, was one, and Duke Guglielmo Gonzaga in Mantua, among a handful of others, but none was as accomplished or as publicly recognized as he. And his personal life, marked by tragedy and psychological as well as physical pain, has contributed to his notoriety and has fueled probing discussions of its connection to the ... Read More

A completely new edition of the score was published in Prague by Státní hudební vydavatelství (SHV) in 1965, edited by Karel Šrom, but, like the first edition, this has been out of print for many years.

Manuel Antonio was the director of Crédito Público and Ministro de Hacienda in Venezuela, author of the very popular etiquette book Manual de urbanidad y buenas maneras,1 amateur musician, and the son of Cayetano Carreño, a Kapellmeister at the Carácas Cathedral. In addition to Teresa, they had three children: María Emilia Gertrudis de Jesús (b. 1841), María Teresa Gertrudis de Jesús (1842–1845), and Manuel Antonio Alejo Ramón del Carmen (b. 1856).
