Lectures on Modern Music:Delivered, Under the Auspices of the Rice Institute Lectureship in Music, January 27, 28, and 29, 1925 (Classic Reprint) Nadia Boulanger
Fictional drama about the meeting between Nadia Boulanger and Astor Piazzola that changed both the history of tango and the life of the musician. The famous author of Adios Nonino, Libertango, and Oblivion abandoned when young the tango and the bandoneon to learn and compose classical music. The meeting with the famous French music teacher Nadia Boulanger helped Piazzola to retrieve his musical roots and to revolutionize the Argentine tango with new techniques. Without Boulanger, Piazzolla would have never existed as such. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Betsy Beard. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/062053/bk_acx0_062053_sample.mp3.

Nadia Boulanger´s Three Pieces for Viola and PianoPosterity has retained of Nadia Boulanger only her gifts as a virtuoso of the piano and organ, her skill as a conductor (of vocal ensemble and orchestra) and most of all, her incredible charisma as a teacher. For nearly sixty years, Mademoiselle made the most of her famous Wednesdays, bringing rigour and passion to the training of several generations of musicians: among so many others, Aaron Copland, Leonard Bernstein, Igor Markevitch, Michel Legrand, Witold Lutoslawski, Astor Piazzolla, Quincy Jones and John-Eliot Gardiner have all kept unforgettable memories of these times.Was Nadia Boulanger wrong to let teaching music take precedence over her composing, as Gabriel Fauré, the great master she venerated, believed? The publication of Three Pieces for Viola and Piano, raises the question. This transcription of Three Pieces for cello and piano was composed between 1911 and 1913 and published by Heugel. The two initial pieces were originally written for organ: the first, in E flat minor, brings a moderate tempo to a melancholy cantilena with Romantic accents, while the second, in A minor, exudes warmth and tenderness. The third piece (C sharp minor), most likely originally titled Danse espagnole, heralds the Roaring Twenties with its restlessness and festive crackle. Together they emit a charm that is difficult to resist.
Rapturous in its ability to depict the creative process, Words Without Music allows readers to experience that sublime moment of creative fusion when life merges with art. Biography lovers will be inspired by the story of a precocious boy, the son of a music shop owner, who entered college at fifteen before travelling to Paris to study under Nadia Boulanger. Glass devotees will be fascinated by the stories behind Einstein on the Beach and Satyagraha among other works. Whether recalling his experiences working at Bethlehem Steel, travelling in India, driving a cab in 1970s New York or his professional collaborations with the likes of Allen Ginsberg, Doris Lessing and Martin Scorsese, Words Without Music affirms the power of music to change the world.
The national debate over popular music´s effect on character is both furious and confused. Conservatives complain primarily about lyrics, appealing to public decency and safety. Liberals, swift to the defense of any self-expression, simultaneously celebrate rock´s liberating ethos and deny its cultural influence. Carson Holloway is out to shatter the assumptions of pop´s critics and defenders alike, showing that music is more beneficial than we think. Plato and Aristotle, Holloway finds, were aware that music can either inflame the soul with passion or can awaken it to reason and help to cultivate temperance. What Holloway proposes, a rediscovery of the musical wisdom of Plato and Aristotle, will completely change the way we think about music. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nadia May.
