Rhapsody in Blue has been restored to Gershwin's original manuscript by the talented Alicia Zizzo. This special edition includes an addendum to the two piano, four hands edition and the fully restored piano manuscript. When preparing the Rhapsody in Blue for publication, editors at Sam Harms Music Co. applied their own 19th century compositional conservatory training to the piece. With good intentions and due respect to Gershwin, they discreetly altered chords, phrases, dynamics, and accents, deleting whole passages to create a more concise work. Oddly, with the exception of four bars, all the deletions were from the piano solo sections, leaving the orchestration mostly undisturbed. Over 50 measures were deleted from the manuscript for the two-piano, four-hands publication, and the piece was shortened by several minutes. Approximately 80 measures were deleted from the original manuscript for the piano solo version and the editors used the second piano/orchestral reduction as a basis for it, further distancing the piano solo edition from Gershwin's original intent. After 70 years, the majesty of the complete Rhapsody in Blue as originally conceived and performed is finally available to future generations in this special annotated edition.

In Arranging Gershwin, author Ryan Bañagale approaches George Gershwin's iconic piece Rhapsody in Blue not as a composition but as an arrangement -- a status it has in many ways held since its inception in 1924, yet one unconsidered until now. Shifting emphasis away from the notion of the Rhapsody as a static work by a single composer, Bañagale posits a broad vision of the piece that acknowledges the efforts of a variety of collaborators who shaped the Rhapsody as we know it today. Arranging Gershwin sheds new light on familiar musicians such as Leonard Bernstein and Duke Ellington, introduces lesser-known figures such as Ferde Grofé and Larry Adler, and remaps the terrain of this emblematic piece of American music. At the same time, it expands on existing approaches to the study of arrangements -- an emerging and insightful realm of American music studies -- as well as challenges existing and entrenched definitions of composer and composition. Based on a host of newly discovered manuscripts, the book significantly alters existing historical and cultural conceptions of the Rhapsody. With additional forays into visual media, including the commercial advertising of United Airlines and Woody Allen's Manhattan, it moreover exemplifies how arrangements have contributed not only to the iconicity of Gershwin and Rhapsody in Blue, but also to music-making in America -- its people, their pursuits, and their processes.

Repertorio de vituperios musicales

Una maravillosa e insolente compilación de sofisticados vituperios proferidos por los más respetados críticos musicales contra los compositores que han marcado la historia de la música. ¿Qué famoso compositor fue un sinvergüenza y un bastardo sin talento alguno? ¿El tercer movimiento de qué conocida sinfonía comienza con un perro aullando a la medianoche, luego imita las regurgitaciones de una cisterna de casa vulgar de clase media baja, y termina con un violonchelo tratando de reproducir el chirrido de una carretilla sin engrasar? Repertorio de vituperios musicales es un recorrido venenoso por la historia de la música clásica. Más allá de una exhaustiva muestra del despliegue de ingenio y la lengua viperina de los críticos musicales a la hora de arremeter contra las obras desde la época de Beethoven, este libro es a su vez una sutil crítica a nuestro ancestral rechazo de todo lo nuevo y desconocido. Además, el estilo meticuloso de los comentarios, que entran a valorar aspectos musicales curiosos y sutiles detalles de las piezas, no solo da fe de un increíble nivel en la crítica musical, que hoy hemos perdido, sino que además llevará al lector a escuchar de otro modo las obras maestras de la historia de la música occidental. Entre los eminentes críticos están George Bernard Shaw, Friedrich Nietzsche y Oscar Wilde. ---------- «Liszt es una persona común y corriente con el pelo de punta, un esnob salido de un frenopático. Escribe la música más fea que existe.» Dramatic and Musical Review, Londres, 7 de enero de 1843 ---------- «Beethoven les cogió el gusto a las disonancias poco eufónicas porque oía poco y de un modo confuso [...]. Las combinaciones más monstruosas de notas acabaron sonando, en su cabeza, como aceptables y equilibradas.» A. Oulibicheff, Beethoven, ses critiques et ses glossateurs, París 1857 ---------- «La música de Wagner es la que más me gusta. Suena tan fuerte que uno puede hablar todo el tiempo sin que nadie oiga lo que dice.» Oscar Wilde Reseña: «Probablemente la obra de consulta más entretenida que existe. Lo que tenemos aquí es una antología sensacionalista de la crítica de la música clásica, pero gracias a las impecables credenciales de Slonimsky, nadie tiene que fingir que lo compra para regalo.» Peter Shickele, compositor y musicólogo «Nicolas Slonimsky recopila en su Repertorio de vituperios musicales los juicios malévolos y viperinos que los críticos han emitido sobre los compositores más destacados.» Stefano Russomanno, ABC Cultural «El libro puede abrirse por cualquier página y la risa está asegurada.» Juanju Blasco Panamá, Artes & Letras, Heraldo de Aragón «Una magnífca obra de consulta, con grandes dosis de humor.» Cosme Marina, Artes & Letras, Información de Alicante

Since the earliest civilizations, a connection has existed between music and the literary arts. From the Old Testament and ancient Greek poets to the great operatic masterpieces of the nineteenth century, music and words have forged an inseparable bond. This relationship is not only seen in musical genres but in a prolific output of novels for adults and children that contain musical themes, characters, and/or settings. This book is the result of many years of research into fiction that has this musical connection. Focusing on novels mainly from the twentieth century, this volume contains an extensive annotated list featuring works for adult, young adult and juvenile audiences and also represents a wide range of musical genre from classical to jazz to rap. Following the annotations, this book provides a comprehensive listing of all titles sorted by reading level and by musical genres to assist librarians, educators, and readers in finding the precise book for a given need or interest.

Celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the most popular and enduring band ever: “Even the most hardcore Deadheads will be impressed by this obsessively complete look at the Grateful Dead’s lyrics” (Publishers Weekly). The Complete Annotated Grateful Dead Lyrics is an authoritative text, providing standard versions of all the original songs you thought you knew forwards and backwards. These are some of the best-loved songs in the modern American songbook. They are hummed and spoken among thousands as counterculture code and recorded by musicians of all stripes for their inimitable singability and obscure accessibility. How do they do all this? To provide a context for this formidable body of work, of which his part is primary, Robert Hunter has written a foreword that goes to the heart of the matter. And the annotations on sources provide a gloss on the lyrics, which goes to the roots of Western culture as they are incorporated into them. An avid Grateful Dead concertgoer for more than two decades, David Dodd is a librarian who brings to the work a detective’s love of following a clue as far as it will take him. Including essays by Dead lyricists Robert Hunter and John Perry and Jim Carpenter’s original illustrations, whimsical elements in the lyrics are brought to light, showcasing the American legend that is present in so many songs. A gorgeous keepsake edition of the Dead’s official annotated lyrics, The Complete Annotated Grateful Dead Lyrics is an absolute must-have for the fiftieth anniversary—you won’t think of this cultural icon the same way again. In fact, founding band member Bob Weir said: “This book is great. Now I’ll never have to explain myself.”
