Folk music is more than an idealized reminder of a simpler past. It reveals a great deal about present-day understandings of community and belonging. It celebrates the shared traditions that define a group or nation. In America, folk music - from African-American spirituals to English ballads and protest songs - renders the imagined community more tangible and comprises a critical component of our diverse national heritage. In ´´I Hear America Singing´´, Rachel Donaldson traces the vibrant history of the 20th-century folk music revival from its origins in the 1930s through its end in the late 1960s. She investigates the relationship between the revival and concepts of nationalism, showing how key figures in the revival - including Pete Seeger, Alan Lomax, Moses Asch, and Ralph Rinzler - used songs to influence the ways in which Americans understood the values, the culture, and the people of their own nation. 1.

Bobby Vinton says he never wanted to be a musician; he wanted to be a football player instead. In fact, his parents would bribe him 25 cents an hour just to get him to practice his clarinet. Vinton sat down with Wink Martindale in 1973 to discuss his success with ´´Blue on Blue´´ and the story behind ´´Roses are Red´´. He says writing songs is difficult, and he isn´t sure who is buying his albums. Vinton also discusses putting together a pop music band in high school and how he began his acting career. 1.

La música es una manifestación artística presente en la totalidad de la historia. Desde el nacimiento de las primeras sociedades tribales hasta la actualidad, ha acompañado al hombre no sólo en los acontecimientos históricos más relevantes, sino en la vida cotidiana de los seres humanos. Es por esto que un acercamiento a la historia de la música es necesario para cualquier hombre, pero muchas veces los conceptos musicales pueden ser complejos o nuevos para el oyente. Breve Historia de la Música supone un acercamiento completo al desarrollo de los procesos históricos más importantes; y además clarifica los conceptos más difíciles y los presenta de un modo accesible para cualquier oyente. Javier María López Rodríguez se esfuerza en presentarnos la música como una parte importante del patrimonio de la humanidad, que, pese a lo volátil que pueda parecer, se puede rastrear hasta sus orígenes prehistóricos. Del análisis de la música en Grecia y Roma pasará a la Edad Media y los avances en el contrapunto y la polifonía vocal que alcanzan su máximo esplendor en el Renacimiento. A partir del Barroco la melodía cobrará gran importancia, y será llevada a su grado máximo de perfección por gigantes de la talla de Mozart o de Haydn. Los siguientes siglos estarán caracterizados por la continua búsqueda de innovación melódica y, en el S.XX, a esta búsqueda de innovación se suma la revolución tecnológica que provocará una explosión auténtica de géneros y técnicas: impresionismo, atonalidad, dodecafonía, surrealismo integral, indeterminación, música electrónica, rock, jazz…Este importante libro en audio nos presenta la historia universal de la música de un modo que cualquier oyente, profesional o lego, puede entenderla.

For more than 20 years, music critic Bernard Holland reviewed the most celebrated artists of the 20th century. He reported both sides of the culture war between an honored past and radical change. Throughout his writings, Holland discusses what classical music really is, destroys the myth of high and low art, and defines the job of the music critic. Along the way, the listener will chat with Herbert von Karajan, take a plane trip with Yo-Yo Ma, and walk the slow walk with Robert Wilson. 1. Language: English. Narrator: David Lipovitch.

It covers the four Beatles in their early days of performing throughout England, Scotland, and Germany.

Con la caída del punk como fenómeno masivo y el declive del heavy metal como género prometedor, el horizonte musical del rock urgía seriamente de la novedad. Sin embargo, nadie estaba preparado para la onda new wave, un género que diversificó hasta límites increíbles el espectro del rock. Bandas como Tears for fears, The Cure, Depeche Mode, A-HA, Culture Club y un largo etcétera, estuvieron ahí para confirmarlo. Please note: This audiobook is in Spanish. 1.

Cage the Elephant has toured the globe, sold hundreds of thousands of albums, and become, in Rolling Stone’s words, ´´one of rock’s best young bands.” Before any of that, though, Cage was just five guys from Bowling Green, a small town in southern Kentucky. In Home Grown, Craig Fehrman secured Almost Famous-levels of access to tell the story of Cage’s rise. But along the way he discovered an even bigger story - how a tiny, overlooked place like Bowling Green had itself become one of the most vibrant music scenes in the country. Through vivid storytelling and exclusive details, Home Grown traces the history of Cage, from the band forming in high school to hanging with the Foo Fighters. But the Single also explores how and why Cage keeps coming home. You’ll meet the characters and locations that make up Bowling Green’s scene: the music-first dive bar where Cage got its start; the creaky, Pirate-themed house where artists gather to jam; the radio DJ who sacrificed everything to play local music - plus a slew of exciting young bands, all in different stages of their careers. How does a music scene work, especially in a place most people assume doesn’t even have a music scene? Home Grown has the answers, and it makes a great read for music fans - or for anyone who grew up in a place like Bowling Green. Craig Fehrman is a writer who lives in Indiana. His work has appeared in The New York Times, The New Republic, and Slate, among others. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rex Anderson.
