The composer and pianist Michael Finnissy (b. 1946) is an unmistakeable presence in the British and international new music scene, both for his immeasurable generosity as prolific composer for many different types of musicians, major advocate for the works of others, and performer and conductor who has also been a driving force behind ensembles; he was also President of the International Society for Contemporary Music from 1990 to 1996. His vast and enormously varied output confounds those who seek easy categorisations: once associated strongly with the ‘new complexity’, Finnissy is equally known as composer regularly engaged with many different folk musics, for working with amateur and community musicians, for a long-term engagement with sacred music, or as an advocate of Anglo-American ‘experimental’ music. Twenty years ago, a large-scale volume entitled Uncommon Ground: The Music of Michael Finnissy gave the first major overview of the output of any ‘complex’ composer. This new volume brings a greater plurality of perspectives and critical sensibility to bear upon an output which is almost twice as large as it was when the earlier book was published. A range of leading contributors – musicologists, composers, performers and others – each grapple with particular questions relating to Finnissy’s music, often in ways which raise questions relating more widely to new music, and provide theoretical foundations for further of study both of Finnissy and other composers.

Frédéric Chopin (1810-1849) und Franz Liszt (1811-1886) kannten sich seit den 1830er Jahren, als beide in Paris einem illustren Freundeskreis u. a. mit Balzac, Musset, Heine und Delacroix angehörten. Seine große Liebe George Sand lernte Chopin in Liszts Pariser Wohnung kennen. Das 1851 entstandene Buch über Chopin gilt als Liszts bedeutendste literarische Leistung und ist sowohl Biografie als auch Auseinandersetzung mit dessen Werk, nicht zuletzt aber eine sprachgewaltige, poetische Annäherung an das Genie seines Freundes. Auf persönlichen Wunsch von Liszt wurde das Werk 1880 von der Musikschriftstellerin La Mara (Ida Marie Lipsius) aus dem Französischen übersetzt. Nachdruck der 1880 in Leipzig erschienenen deutschen Erstausgabe.

Das Jazz Theorie Buch ist wohl das umfangreichste Werk seiner Art. Es ist ähnlich aufgebaut wie der vom selben Autor bei Advance Music erschienene Bestseller Das Jazz Piano Buch und genauso praxisbezogen. Theoretische Sachverhalte werden immer anhand musikalischer Beispiele und Transkriptionen von berühmten Aufnahmen der Jazzgeschichte erklärt. Von den theoretischen Grundlagen wie Intervalle, Akkord/Skalen-Theorie (Dur, Moll, Vermindert, Ganzton, Bebop, Pentatonik etc.) über die II-V-I Verbindung, Blues und Rhythm Changes bis hin zu Salsa und Latin Jazz werden in 24 Kapitel alle wichtigen Themen ausführlich behandelt. Daneben enthält das Buch nützliche Information über die Interpretation von Lead Sheets (Melodie mit Akkordsymbolen), eine ausführliche Repertoire-Liste mit Quellenangaben und Hinweisen auf Play-Along-Aufnahmen und eine Diskographie. Vier höchst interessante Kapitel mit mehr als 100 Seiten sind dem Thema Reharmonisation gewidmet. Titles: Teil I Theorie: Akkorde und Skalen * Teil II Improvisation: Das Spielen über Changes * Teil III Reharmonisation * Teil IV Das Repertoire * Teil V Sonstiges.

From its first edition the purpose of Walford has been to identify and evaluate the widest possible range of reference materials. No rigid definition of reference is applied. In addition to the expected bibliographies, indexes, dictionaries, encyclopaedias, and directories, a number of important textbooks and manuals of general practice are included. While the majority of the items are books, Walford is a guide to reference material. Thus periodical articles, microforms, online and CD-ROM sources are all represented. In this volume a particular effort has been made to improve coverage of the latter two categories.

Die faszinierende Autobiographie der Weltklassepianistin und Wolfsexpertin Hélène Grimaud! Die berühmtesten Konzerthäuser der Welt schmücken sich mit ihrem Namen, bei Musikfestivals ist sie der Publikumsmagnet. Und nach ihren Tourneen kehrt Hélène Grimaud zurück zu den Wölfen, die sie nördlich von New York, in einem viel besuchten Gehege, hält. In „Wolfssonate“ erzählt sie die Geschichte ihres eigenwilligen, ereignisreichen Lebens, das von ihren beiden Leidenschaften geprägt ist. Geschrieben mit einer sprachlichen Eleganz und Lebendigkeit, aus der das kaum zu zügelnde Temperament funkelt, mit dem die Grimaud Meisterwerke der klassischen Musik so atemberaubend zu interpretieren vermag.

Der Schriftsteller Gérard de Nerval gehörte zur französischen Romantik und war mit Victor Hugo, Théophile Gautier und Heinrich Heine befreundet. Stets in Geldnöten und zunehmend von Wahnvorstellungen gequält veröffentlichte er vor allem Reiseberichte und Erzählungen und war als Übersetzer aus dem Deutschen tätig. Sein bis heute bekanntestes Werk ist die wie ein Traum des Ich-Erzählers aufgebaute Erzählung »Aurelia«, die Geschichte einer fatalen Liebe, deren phantastisch-sprunghafte Erzähltechnik Baudelaire und die Surrealisten nachhaltig beeinflusste.
