Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "'When was the score of the Requiem completed?' is a question that everyone has asked; . . .but Wolff goes on to ask: 'Where do the technical and stylistic premises for the Requiem lie, and to what extent could these be taken into account after Mozart's death?' This question is rich in implications, central to the uniqueness of the work, and virtually undiscussed in the Mozart literature."—Thomas Bauman, co-author of Mozart's Operas

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Composed in 1862 when Liszt learned of the ultimate impossibility of his marriage to Princess Carolyne the two transcriptions from Mozart's 'Requiem' of 'Confutatis maledictis' and "Lacrymosa' hint at contrition mixed with hope mixed with acceptance. In the wake of the events which prevented the marriage, Liszt would turn to God and these transcriptions stand at the outset of a deeply spiritual journey for the composer. --- Komponiert im Jahr 1862, als Liszt von der letztendlichen Unmöglichkeit erfuhr, eine Ehe mit Prinzessin Carolyne eingehen zu können, deuten die zwei Transkriptionen von Mozarts 'Requiem', 'Confutatis Maledictis' und Lacrymosa' auf eine mit Hoffnung und Akzeptanz durchwirkte Reue. Im Zuge der Ereignisse, die die Ehe verhinderten, wandte sich Liszt Gott zu, und diese Transkriptionen stehen am Anfang einer zutiefst spirituellen Reise für den Komponisten.

Download Free Mozart -- a challenge for literature and thought PDF by Rüdiger Görner Full Book and published by Peter Lang. This book was released on 2007 with total page 372 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Schon zu seinen Lebzeiten, verstärkt aber in der Romantik und bis in die Gegenwart, hat Mozarts Leben und Werk Schriftsteller und Philosophen zu produktiver Auseinandersetzung angeregt. Zentraler Ausgangspunkt für die poetisch-intellektuelle Rezeption Mozarts war wiederholt sein Don Giovanni, aber auch seine das Geniehafte prototypisch symbolisierende Persönlichkeit. Dieser Band, der aus einer am Queen Mary College der University of London im April 2006 abgehaltenen Tagung hervorgegangen ist, vereinigt exemplarische Studien dieser literar-philosophischen, aber auch musik- und kulturkritischen Arbeit am Mozart-Mythos und seiner (versuchten) Entzauberung. Already during his lifetime but even more so during Romanticism and up to the present day writers and philosophers have been inspired by Mozart's life and work. Don Giovanni has repeatedly served as the central starting point for such poetic and intellectual engagement but also the composer's personality which epitomizes the notion of the genius-artist. This volume contains the proceedings of a conference held at Queen Mary College, University of London, in April 2006. The contributors discuss the Mozart myth with regard to its literary, philosophical and cultural implications as well as its attempted disenchantment.
Download Free Mozart's Requiem PDF by C. R. F. Maunder Full Book and published by Oxford University Press, USA. This book was released on 1988 with total page 227 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: When Mozart died in 1791, he left unfinished the score of his Requiem. At the request of his widow, the work was completed by Mozart's pupil and assistant, Franz Xaver Süssmayr. Unfortunately, Süssmayr was a musician of limited technique and ability--his poor orchestration has frequently been criticized, and considerable controversy has surrounded the question of whether the movements missing from Mozart's autograph were entirely Süssmayr's work, or whether he might have based them on Mozart's sketches or oral instructions. This book is an intensive new study of the background to the Requiem and the music itself. Maunder, who after many years' research has recently completed a new edition of the Requiem that attempts to be more faithful to Mozart's original intentions, presents detailed arguments concerning the authenticity of the doubtful movements, the editorial decisions he faced in preparing the new edition, the settings by other composers that may have influenced Mozart, and the problems of performance practice. He concludes that Süssmayr probably did write the disputed movements, but may have used a now-lost Mozart sketch in composing the Agnus Dei. This fascinating new study of one of classical music's best-loved works will interest a wide range of music students and scholars, and general readers.
Download Free Goethe and Zelter: Musical Dialogues PDF by LorraineByrne Bodley Full Book and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2017-07-05 with total page 604 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Goethe and Zelter spent a staggering 33 years corresponding or in the case of each artist, over two thirds of their lives. Zelter's position as director of the Sing-Akademie zu Berlin and Goethe's location in Weimar resulted in a wide-ranging correspondence. Goethe's letters offer a chronicle of his musical development, from the time of his journey to Italy to the final months of his life. Zelter's letters retrace his path as stonemason to Professor of Music in Berlin. The 891 letters that passed between these artists provide an important musical record of the music performed in public concerts in Berlin and in the private and semi-public soir of the Weimar court. Their letters are those of men actively engaged in the musical developments of their time. The legacy contains a wide spectrum of letters, casual and thoughtfully composed, spontaneous and written for publication, rich with the details of Goethe's and Zelter's musical lives. Through Zelter, Goethe gained access to the professional music world he craved and became acquainted with the prodigious talent of Felix Mendelssohn. A single letter from Zelter might bear a letter from Felix Mendelssohn to another recipient of the same family, reflecting a certain community in the Mendelssohn household where letters were not considered private but shared with others in a circle of friends or family. Goethe recognized the value of such correspondence: he complains when his friend is slow to send letters in return for those written to him by the poet, a complaint common in this written culture where letters provided news, introductions, literary and musical works. This famous correspondence contains a medley of many issues in literature, art, and science; but the main focus of this translation is the music dialogues of these artists.

Download Free Mozart's Grace PDF by Scott Burnham Full Book and published by Princeton University Press. This book was released on 2015-09-22 with total page 204 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Aspects of beauty in the music of Mozart It is a common article of faith that Mozart composed the most beautiful music we can know. But few of us ask why. Why does the beautiful in Mozart stand apart, as though untouched by human hands? At the same time, why does it inspire intimacy rather than distant admiration, love rather than awe? And how does Mozart's music create and sustain its buoyant and ever-renewable effects? In Mozart's Grace, Scott Burnham probes a treasury of passages from many different genres of Mozart's music, listening always for the qualities of Mozartean beauty: beauty held in suspension; beauty placed in motion; beauty as the uncanny threshold of another dimension, whether inwardly profound or outwardly transcendent; and beauty as a time-stopping, weightless suffusion that comes on like an act of grace. Throughout the book, Burnham engages musical issues such as sonority, texture, line, harmony, dissonance, and timing, and aspects of large-scale form such as thematic returns, retransitions, and endings. Vividly describing a range of musical effects, Burnham connects the ways and means of Mozart's music to other domains of human significance, including expression, intimation, interiority, innocence, melancholy, irony, and renewal. We follow Mozart from grace to grace, and discover what his music can teach us about beauty and its relation to the human spirit. The result is a newly inflected view of our perennial attraction to Mozart's music, presented in a way that will speak to musicians and music lovers alike.
Download Free Mozarts Streichquintette PDF by Cliff Eisen Full Book and published by Franz Steiner Verlag. This book was released on 1994 with total page 208 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Im vorliegenden Sammelband sollen wesentliche, bislang in der Literatur weitgehend vernachlassigte Aspekte zur Sprache kommen, wobei freilich ein moglichst breites Spektrum an Fragestellungen und an behandelten Werken intendiert ist. Gerade die engen Beziehungen zwischen Quartett und Quintett werden mehrfach - und in erstaunlicher Konsistenz der Ergebnisse - thematisiert. Somit will vorliegendes Buch nicht allein neue Einblicke und Perspektiven vermitteln, sondern auch nachdruecklich zu weiterer Beschaftigung mit diesen wahrhaften Meisterwerken - aber auch mit ihrer Gattung im allgemeinen - anregen. "Es gibt gut gemachte Buecher und es gibt notwendige Buecher. In der Musikwissenschaft hat man nicht allzu oft den Gluecksfall, daa beides zusammenfallt. Mozarts Streichquintette stehen im Schatten anderer Gattungen, vor allem der Streichquartette. Hier galt es schon lange, eine Luecke zu schlieaen. Dankenswerterweise geschieht dies nun nicht etwa in Art eines besseren Konzertfuehrers, der die sechs Werke der Reihe nach vorstellt, sondern in einer Publikation, die die verschiedensten Aspekte, von der Satztechnik bis zur Werkueberlieferung, vom Stellenwert innerhalb von Mozarts Schaffen bis zum musikhistorischen Umfeld in sieben Aufsatzen zur Sprache bringt." Mozart-Jahrbuch "aauf diesem Weg sind den Artikeln dieses rundum attraktiven Bandes viele Leser zu wuenschen." Die Musikforschung "ader greife zu dieser konzentrierten, fundierten und gleichermaaen gut geschriebenen Aufsatzsammlung. Es lohnt sich." Osterreichische Musikzeitschrift "Der Band ist gleich in mehrfacher Hinsicht konkurrenzlos: In insgesamt sieben Aufsatzen bietet er nicht nur eine langst ueberfallige, wissenschaftlich kompetente Auseinandersetzung mit diesen zentralen Kammermusik-Werken Mozarts, sondern auch den ersten umfassenden Versuch, sie in einen eigenen, spezifischen Gattungskontext einzuordnen."

Download Free Mozart's Ghosts PDF by Mark Everist Full Book and published by Oxford University Press. This book was released on 2013-06-11 with total page pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Mozart's Ghosts traces the many lives of this great composer that emerged following his early death in 1791. Crossing national boundaries and traversing two hundred years-worth of interpretation and reception, author Mark Everist investigates how Mozart's past status can be understood as part of today's veneration. Everist forges new paths to reach the composer, examining a number of ways in which Western culture has absorbed the idea of Mozart, how various cultural agents have appropriated, deployed, and exploited Mozart toward both authoritarian and subversive ends, and how the figure of Mozart and his impact illuminate the cultural history of the last two centuries in Europe, England, and America. Modern reverence for the composer is conditioned by earlier responses to his music, and Everist argues that such earlier responses are more complex than allowed by a simple "reception studies" model. Closely linking nine case studies in an innovative cultural and theoretical framework, the book approaches the developing reputation of the composer from death to the present day along three paths: "Phantoms of the Opera" deals with stage music, "Holy Spirits" addresses the trope of the sacred, and "Specters at the Feast" considers the impact of Mozart's music in literature and film. Mozart's Ghosts adeptly moves the study of Mozart reception away from hagiography and closer to cultural and historical criticism, and will be avidly read by Mozart scholars and students of eighteenth-century music history, as well as literary critics, historians of philosophy and aesthetics, and cultural historians in general.

Download Free Mozart PDF by Robert Gutman Full Book and published by Random House. This book was released on 2011-08-31 with total page 864 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Mozart: A Cultural Biography is a fresh interpretation of a musical genius, meticulously researched and gracefully written. It places Mozart's life and music in the context of the intellectual, political, and artistic currents of eighteenth-century Europe. Even as he delves into philosophic and aesthetic questions, Robert Gutman keeps in sight, clearly and firmly, the composer and his works. He discusses the major genres in which Mozart worked - chamber music; liturgical, theatre, and keyboard compositions; concerto; symphony; opera; and oratorio. All of these riches unfold within the framework of the composer's brief but remarkable life.With Gutman's informed and sensitive handling, Mozart emerges in a light more luminous than in previous renderings. The composer was an affectionate and generous man to family and friends, self-deprecating, witty, winsome, but also an austere moralist, incisive and purposeful.Mozart is both an extraordinary portrait of a man in his time and a brilliant distillation of musical thought.
Download Free The Aesthetic Discourse of the Arts PDF by Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka Full Book and published by Springer Science & Business Media. This book was released on 2012-12-06 with total page 281 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The fine arts first emerged divided by the five senses yet, since their very origin, they have projected aesthetic networks among themselves. Music, song, painting, architecture, sculpture, theatre, dance - distinct in themselves - grew together, enhancing each other. In the present outburst of technical ingeniosity, individual arts cross all barriers, as well as proliferate in kind. Hence the traditional criteria of appreciation and enjoyment vanish. The enlarged and ever-growing field calls for new principles of appreciation and new values, essential to our culture. This collection initiates an inquiry into the aesthetic foundations of the fine arts. Their common aesthetic nature, as well as the differentiating specificities which sustain them, might reveal the universal role of aesthetics in human life. Studies by Paula Carabell, J. Fiori Blanchfield, R. Riese Hubert, R. Gray, D. Lipten, J. Parsons, S. Brown, C. Osowie Ruoff, T. Raczka, K. Karbenier and others.
Download Free Mozart and the Nazis PDF by Erik Levi Full Book and published by Yale University Press. This book was released on 2011-02-01 with total page 336 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A music historian uncovers Nazi Germany’s use of Mozart as a WWII propaganda tool in this “intriguing study [that] comprehends a range of vital topics” (Choice). As the Nazi war machine expanded its bloody ambitions across Europe, the Third Reich sought to promote a sophisticated and even humanitarian image of German culture through the tireless promotion of Mozart’s music. In this revelatory book, Erik Levi draws on World War II era articles, diaries, speeches, and other archival materials to provide a new understanding of how the Nazis shamelessly manipulated Mozart for their own political advantage. Mozart and the Nazis also explores the continued Jewish veneration of the composer during this period while also highlighting some of the disturbing legacies that resulted from the Nazi appropriation of his work. Enhanced by rare contemporary illustrations, Mozart and the Nazis is a fascinating addition to the study of music history, World War II propaganda, and twentieth century politics.
