Scotch-Irish Influence on Country Music in the Carolinas, The
HK$ 118.00
Kobo
Country music in the Carolinas and the southern Appalachian Mountains owes a tremendous debt to freedom-loving Scotch-Irish pioneers who settled the southern backcountry during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. These hardy Protestant settlers brought with them from Lowland Scotland, Northern England and the Ulster Province of Ireland music that created the essential framework for "old-time string band music." From the cabins of the Blue Ridge and Great Smoky Mountains to the textile mills and urban centers of the Carolina foothills, this colorful, passionate, heartfelt music transformed the culture of America and the world and laid the foundation for western swing, bluegrass, rockabilly and modern country music. Author Michael Scoggins takes a trip to the roots of country music in the Carolinas.

A History of American Classical Music
HK$ 82.00
Kobo
To many people, the term 'American classical music' means a handful of famous names: Gershwin, Copland, Bernstein, Sousa. But this doesnt begin to scrape the surface of a musical heritage reaching back to colonial times. For instance, did you know that George Washington loved dance music, and that Abraham Lincolns favorite song was Listen to the Mocking-Bird by the American composer Septimus Winner? Americas legacy of concert music contains extraordinary riches, much of it unfamiliar even to sophisticated music lovers. This entertaining, fact-filled History of American Classical Music celebrates that legacy by investigating the greatest composers familiar and unfamiliar: American Romantics like William Henry Fry, Louis Moreau Gottschalk and Edward MacDowell; visionary modernists like Charles Ives, Morton Feldman and John Cage; buoyant spirits like Victor Herbert and Scott Joplin; as well as figures at todays cutting edge like John Adams, Philip Glass, Michael Torke and Carter Pann.

Classical Music in a Changing Culture
HK$ 366.00 HK$ 406.00
Kobo
Founded in 1935, The American Record Guide is America's oldest classical music review magazine. In 1987, when Donald Vroon assumed its editorship, he took on the Herculean task of writing editorials on a vast array of subjects, amassing a wealth of commentary and criticism on not only the foibles and failings, but glimmers of light in American culture. A staunch defender of the highbrow pleasures of good music composed, played, and heard with intelligence, Vroon takes no prisoners in assessing the challenges and failures and possible successes that confront America's future as a nation of music listeners. In Classical Music in a Changing Culture: Essays from The American Record Guide, Vroon delves into a variety of topics: orchestra finances, contemporary music, classical music marketing, attracting young crowds, musical aesthetics, the future of classical music, the sale and distribution of music in the modern era; the decline of American culture and its causes; the role of misguided ideologies that affect American music, from political correctness to multiculturalism to period performance practice, and the true richness of our music and its subculture. As Vroon argues, since all criticism is cultural criticism, music criticism in the broadest sense-from its composition to its distribution to its reception-is a window onto broader culture issues. Classical Music in a Changing Culture should appeal to anyone serious about classical music and worried about its increasing marginalization in our contemporary culture. These essays are not written for specialists but for thinking readers who love music and care about its place in our lives.

Timpani Tone and the Interpretation of Baroque and Classical Music
HK$ 137.00 HK$ 145.00
Kobo
Timpani Tone and the Interpretation of Baroque and Classical Music explores the nature, production, and evolution of timpani tone and provides insights into how to interpret the music of J.s. Bach, Handel, Haydn, and Mozart. In drawing on 31 years of experience, Steven L. Schweizer focuses on the components of timpani tone and methods for producing it. In so doing, he discusses the importance of timpani bowl type; mallets; playing style; physical gestures; choice of drums; mallet grip; legato, marcato, and staccato strokes; playing different parts of the timpano head; and psychological openness to the music in effectively shaping and coloring timpani parts. In an acclaimed chapter on interpretation, Schweizer explores how timpanists can use knowledge of the composer's style, psychology, and musical intentions; phrasing and articulation; the musical score; and a conductor's gestures to effectively and convincingly play a part with emotional dynamism and power. The greater part of the book is devoted to the interpretation of Baroque and Classical orchestral and choral music. Meticulously drawing on original sources and authoritative scores from the seventeenth through nineteenth centuries, Schweizer convincingly demonstrates that timpanists were capable of producing a broader range of timpani tone earlier than is normally supposed. The increase in timpani size, covered timpani mallets, and thinner timpani heads increased the quality of timpani tone; therefore, today's timpanist's need not be entirely concerned with playing with very articulate sticks. In exhaustive sections on Bach, Handel, Haydn, and Mozart, Schweizer takes the reader on an odyssey through the interpretation of their symphonic and choral music. Relying on Baroque and Classical performance practices, timpani notation, the composer's musical style, and definitive scores, he interprets timpani parts from major works of these composers. Schweizer pays particular attention to timpani tone, articulation,

Country music's greatest mullets, bobs, beehives, and bouffants collected together in one entertaining volume, illustrated with dozens of color and black-and-white photographs."The higher the hair, the closer to god."From mullets to mustaches and teased hair to bobs, country singers each have their own distinct looks which enhance their performance and image. Some wear hats and others wear wigs. Some follow the trends and others set them. Some have stylists on the tour bus and others rely on God and hair-spray. As Dolly Parton famously said, "People always ask me how long it takes to do my hair. I don't know, I'm never there."As country has grown in stature and popularity since the 1960s, country musicians have evolved their music-and their hairstyles and fashion as well. Industry insider Erin Duvall takes fans on a lively tour in this entertaining history that combines interviews with famous hairstylists and fifty of country music stars' best 'dos, including 1990s mullet king, Billy Ray Cyrus. While business in the front and party in the back may be outdated today, twenty years ago it was one of country's defining styles. In Country Music Hair, Duvall tells a tale of the day the mullet died and the rumor of the strong emotional reaction from the "Achy Breaky Heart" singer's young daughter, Miley, who desperately pleaded with him to keep his mane.A fantastic and fun trip down memory lane, Country Music Hair is a must for country listeners and pop culture fans.

Her exuberant performances, beauty, and acting talent quickly catapulted her to the highest echelons of fame and fortune, and during her lifetime she won more awards than any other female vocalist. Tony Bennett put it best on his twitter feed: Whitney Houston was the greatest singer Ive ever heard, and she will be truly missed. Certain voices stand like monuments upon the landscape of twentieth century pop, defining the architecture of their times, sheltering the dreams of millions, and inspiring the climbing careers of countless imitators. Whitney Houston owns one of those voices, wrote Ann Powers of the Los Angeles Times. What was it about her voice that created such an international sensation? Listen to the excellent montage of Houstons greatest moments at People.com and youll immediately understand. Her enormously wide range, gorgeous timber, and strong resonance made her voice sound almost supernatural. She could trill to treble F, extend down to G, and drop below middle C. One of the most celebrated songs of Houstons career, her famous remake of Dolly Partons I Will Always Love You, showcased her powerful gift. Houston popularized the song at the height of her fame in the music video she recorded for the 1992 movie The Bodyguard. Houston also broke racial barriers when she rose to the top of the mainstream entertainment business. From her young modeling days to her later incredibly successful movie career, she always did it better and made more money than almost everyone else in Hollywood. As Jimmy Jam noted, To me, Whitney was the next person, after Diana Ross, who for a lot of little girls was sort of that bright light called positive African-American beauty and talent. When you look at someone like Beyonce, you know the influence someone like Whitney had on that. Meet THE AUTHORKimberly Hudson is a professional writer who lives and works in Mass

Co-winner of the 1983 National Book Award for Poetry, Country Music is comprised of eighty-eight poems selected from Charles Wright's first four books published between 1970 and 1977. From his first book, The Grave of the Right Hand, to the extraordinary China Trace, this selection of early works represents "Charles Wright's grand passions: his desire to reclaim and redeem a personal past, to make a reckoning with his present, and to conjure the terms by which we might face the future," writes David St. John in the forward. These poems, powerful and moving in their own right, lend richness and insight to Wright's recently collected later works. "In Country Music we see the same explosive imagery, the same dismantled and concentric (or parallel) narratives, the same resolutely spiritual concerns that have become so familiar to us in Wright's more recent poetry," writes St. John.

The Instrumental Music of Schmeltzer, Biber, Muffat and their Contemporaries
HK$ 446.00 HK$ 496.00
Kobo
Based on primary sources, many of which have never been published or examined in detail, this book examines the music of the late seventeenth-century composers, Biber, Schmeltzer and Muffat, and the compositions preserved in the extensive Moravian archives in Kromeriz. These works have never before been fully examined in the cultural and conceptual contexts of their time. Charles E. Brewer sets these composers and their music within a framework that first examines the basic Baroque concepts of instrumental style, and then provides a context for the specific works. The dances of Schmeltzer, for example, functioned both as incidental music in Viennese operas and as music for elaborate court pantomimes and balls. These same cultural practices also account for some of Biber's most programmatic music, which accompanied similar entertainments in Kromeriz and Salzburg. The many sonatas by these composers have also been misunderstood by not being placed in a context where it was normal to be entertained in church and edified in court. Many of the works discussed here remain unpublished but have, in recent years, been recorded. This book enhances our understanding and appreciation of these recordings by providing an analysis of the context in which the works were first performed.

The Essential Canon of Classical Music
HK$ 137.00 HK$ 171.00
Kobo
The ultimate guide to classical composers and their music-for both the novice and the experienced listenerMusic, according to Aaron Copland, can thrive only if there are "gifted listeners." But today's listeners must choose between classical and rock, opera and rap, and the choices can seem overwhelming at times. In The Essential Canon of Classical Music, David Dubal comes to the aid of the struggling listener and provides a cultural-literacy handbook for classical music. Dubal identifies the 240 composers whose works are most important to an understanding of classical music and offers a comprehensive, chronological guide to their lives and works. He has searched beyond the traditional canon to introduce readers to little-known works by some of the most revered names in classical music-Bach, Haydn, Mozart, Schubert-as well as to the major works of lesser-known composers. In a spirited and opinionated voice, Dubal seeks to rid us of the notion of "masterpieces" and instead to foster a new generation of master listeners. The result is an uncommon collection of the wonders classical music has to offer.

Der Generalplan Ost - Nationalsozialistische Pläne zur Kolonisation Ostmitteleuropas
HK$ 114.00 HK$ 119.00
Kobo
Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Geschichte Europa - Deutschland - Nationalsozialismus, II. Weltkrieg, Note: 1,0, Universität Vechta; früher Hochschule Vechta (Institut für Geschichte und historische Landesforschung), Veranstaltung: Bombenkrieg und Vertreibung - Über den Umgang mit zwei umstrittenen Themen in Forschung, Öffentlichkeit und Schule, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die vorliegende Hausarbeit beschäftigt sich mit dem sogenannten Generalplan Ost. Im ersten Zugriff kann man den Generalplan Ost als Gesamtkonzeption der Germanisierungspolitik im Dritten Reich zwischen Oder und Ural definieren. Konkret handelt es sich jedoch um eine Vielzahl von spezifischen Plänen, die unter dem Dach der SS, der Schutzstaffel der Nsdap, zwischen 1940 und 1943 unter dem Namen Generalplan Ost entstanden sind. Alle diese Pläne fügen sich in die drei von Heinrich Himmler, ab 1929 Reichsführer SS, ausgegebenen Endziele nationalsozialistischer Politik ein. Erstens das Verschieben der deutschen Ostgrenze soweit wie möglich nach Osten, zweitens das Eingliedern germanischer Völker, in erster Linie Norweger, Dänen, Flamen und Niederländer, in den neuen deutschen Staat und drittens dann die Neuordnung des germanischen Weltreiches. Daraus ableiten kann man eine völkisch-nationale Siedlungs- und Bodenpolitik, die bereits zum Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts virulent war. Gründe dafür sind zum einen das Fehlen von naturgegebenen Volksgrenzen (z.B. zwischen deutschem und polnischem Territorium) oder auch von stabilen Staatsgrenzen und zum anderen daraus resultierend die ethnische Mischzone Ostmitteleuropas. Auf dieser Siedlungs- und Bodenpolitik entwickelte sich nun eine Ideologie, die Esch als Vermischung sozialdarwinistischer und ökonomischer Tendenzen charakterisiert.

Rechtsextremismus in Ost und West

Kobo
Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2012 im Fachbereich Soziologie - Politische Soziologie, Majoritäten, Minoritäten, Note: 1,0, Fachhochschule für öffentliche Verwaltung Nordrhein-Westfalen; Gelsenkirchen, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: 14 Jahre lang trieb eine Terrorzelle in Deutschland ihr Unwesen. Sie war u.a. im Zeitraum von 2000 - 2006 für die sogenannten Ceska - Morde, die in weiten Teilen Deutschlands verübt wurden, verantwortlich. Die auch unter den Döner - Morden bekanntgewordene Serie wurde mittels einer Pistole der Marke Ceska begangen. Die aus dem Osten Deutschlands stammenden rechtsextremistischen Täter agierten also länderübergreifend. Wie also trennt man die rechtsextreme Szene zwischen Ost und West? Die Hausarbeit behandelt die Unterschiede des Rechtsextremismus im Osten und Westen Deutschlands und befasst sich mit der Frage, in wie weit dieser in den jeweiligen Landesteilen verbreitet ist, in welcher Form er auftritt und wie er sich nach dem 2. Weltkrieg entwickelt hat. Rechtsextremismus ist, nur Deutschland betrachtet, in allen Bundesländern und in vielen sozialen Schichten präsent. Es gibt unterschiedliche Formen des Rechtsextremismus, die sich von der Zweiteilung Deutschlands bis ins 21. Jahrhundert verändert haben. So hatte man früher eher das Bild von einem glatzköpfigen, mit Springerstiefeln und Bomberjacke bekleideten jungen Mann, der zu roher scheinbar willkürlicher Gewalt neigt und dessen Bildungsstand eher in der unteren Mittelschicht angesiedelt war. Heute ist das Bild nicht mehr so eindeutig, da sich immer mehr Männer und auch Frauen unterschiedlicher Altersgruppen dem Rechtsextremismus zuwenden, die sich besser organisieren, in einigen Teilen einen höheren Bildungsstand besitzen und sogar einen in der Gesellschaft angesehenen Beruf ausüben, ohne grundsätzlich Gefahr zu laufen, ins soziale Abseits gedrängt zu werden. Das zeigt u.a. ein Gerichtsurteil des Bundesarbeitsgericht vom 12.05.2011 ( Az: 2 AZR 479/09 ), das die Kündigung eines Mitarbeiter

The indelible imprint of sacred music drama throughout history is undeniable. and its resurgence in the twentieth and twentieth-first centuries stirs the curiosity." Carl Gerbrandt, in pursuing these issues, has brought to our fingertips a stimulating historical perspective on sacred music drama as well as an extensively annotated list of repertoire. Years of research have gone into providing information on centuries of sacred music dramas/operas which for the most part have been known to very few. Included in these pages of his Second Edition are over 330 sacred music dramas/operas, each with scholarly and practical information that will be of interest and great value to the opera director, the performer, the scholar, the conductor and the church musician. Gerbrandt's Setting THE Stage section is an enlightening overview of sacred music history. The repertoire selected includes works from the Middle Ages to works being written today. Each work is reviewed with regard to the source of libretto, the style and difficulty of its musical content, the date and location of the first performance, the number of acts and scenes, and the performance length of the work. Additionally, each role is listed by name and voicing, and in most cases, the vocal range is indicated. The choral demands, orchestrations and dance requirements are identified. A thorough plot synopsis as well as the location of scores and parts is given. Ten appendices cross-reference textual sources and topical content while assisting in the selection of works for worship services or theatrical performances. Select contact information of publishers and composers in also included.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2001 im Fachbereich Geschichte - Weltgeschichte - Frühgeschichte, Antike, Note: 1,3, Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster, 27 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Während sich die Bewohner im griechischen Mutterland der Bedrohung durch die Perser erwehren mussten, kam es auch auf der Insel Sizilien, in Himera, zu einem Konflikt zwischen Griechen und Karthagern. War der zeitliche Zusammenhang nur Zufall oder steckt ein groB angelegter Angriff von West und Ost auf die Griechen dahinter? Gab es eine Absprache oder ein Bündnis zwischen Persern und Karthagern? Für die Beantwortung dieser Frage gibt es Quellen aus verschiedenen Zeiten und mit unterschiedlichen Aussagen. Herodot nennt keinen Zusammenhang zwischen beiden Ereignissen und Aristoteles bestreitet einen kausalen Zusammenhang. Dem gegenüber stehen ein Fragment bei Ephoros und Auszüge aus Diodor. Der erste nennt ein Bündnis zwischen Persern und Karthagern, der zweite liefert sogar eine Schlachtenbeschreibung und die Friedensverhandlungen. Ich werde versuchen, die Quellen auf ihre Glaubwürdigkeit hin zu überprüfen und gegeneinander abzuwägen. Beginnen werde ich mit der Überlieferung vor Herodot. Hier sind die Weihungen des Gelon nach Olympia und Delphi und die Oden des Pindar zu nennen. Die vorherodoteische Überlieferung ist wichtig, um das Selbstverständnis der sizilischen Tyrannen darzustellen. Die übrigen Quellen werde ich nacheinander analysieren, um dann in einem letzten Punkt zusammenfassend auf die Frage einzugehen, ob es ein Bündnis zwischen Karthagern und Persern gab. Alle Jahresangaben in diesem Text beziehen sich auf die Zeit vor Christi Geburt, daher ist ein Zusatz hinter den Jahreszahlen weggelassen worden.

About THE Book Johnny Cash has lodged himself in the cultural imagination of America. His prolific career spanned many genrescountry, rock and roll, blues, folk, hillbillyand carried him through decade after decade of artistic production. Today, his musical influence can still be felt and heard in a wide variety of styles and genres. Perhaps most importantly, however, Cash managed to use his music to create a social and cultural personaa kind of modern-day Robin Hood allying himself with the oppressed, the romantic, the marginalized, the imprisoned, and the blue-collar workers of America. Meet THE Author Charles Limley is a native of Colorado. After earning bachelors degrees in both English Literature and Humanities from the University of ColoradoBoulder, he entered the world of professional writing. He began his work with Hyperink during the fall of 2011. In addition to writing, Limley is an avid reader. He also loves bicycles, and has completed several long-distance bicycle tours. Excerpt From THE Book In 1956, Cash released Get Rhythm, and the single climbed as high as number 23 on Billboards Hot Country Singles chart. It was originally released as the B-side to Cashs even more successful single, I Walk the Line, and then became the title track of a compilation album released in 1969. According to Ezine Articles, its believed that it was written for Elvis Presley (Best Johnny Cash Songs). Get Rhythm is often recognized as one of Cashs most upbeat songs that centers around optimism, but this reading of the song may be overly simplistic, however, since the songs story of a young African American shoeshine may be read as bringing up some sensitive racial issues (Ezine Articles, Best Johnny Cash Songs). In writing about this song, Alice Randall poses the question: Racist, racialist, or race appreciating? You decide.

Richard Nixon und die US AuBenpolitik 1969-1974: Ein Bereiter des Friedens zwischen Ost und West?

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2004 im Fachbereich Politik - Internationale Politik - Region: Usa, Note: 2,9, Universität Hamburg (Institut für Politische Wissenschaft), Veranstaltung: Übung: Amt und Wahl des US Präsidenten, 12 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: 'The greatest honor history can bestow is he title of peacemaker' - Die gröBte Ehre, die die Geschichte verleihen kann ist der Titel des Friedensstifters. Eine Aussage, mit der Richard Nixon als 37. Präsident der Vereinigten Staaten am 20. Januar 1969 sein Amt antrat. Ein Präsident, der von der Nachwelt vor allem negativ und in Zusammenhang mit der Watergate-Affäre, die die bisher tief greifendste Vertrauenskrise der Amerikaner in ihr politisches System auslöste, wahrgenommen wurde. Diese Arbeit soll jedoch eine im Zuge des innenpolitischen Fehlverhaltens Richard Nixons oftmals vergessene Seite seiner Präsidentschaft beleuchten: seine AuBenpolitik. Wie im Einleitungssatz angedeutet, war Nixon angetreten, die starre Verkrustung des Kalten Krieges zwischen Ost und West aufzubrechen und durch eine Annäherung der gegnerischen Lager den Weltfrieden zu sichern. Unter was für Umständen dies geschah, welche Hauptakteure am auBenpolitischen Prozess beteiligt waren, welche Impulse die Nixon Administration in den internationalen Beziehungen einbrachte und inwiefern sie ihrem Anspruch den Frieden zu sichern gerecht wurde, soll Thema dieser Arbeit sein. Die Auswirkungen des Watergate-Skandals auf die AuBenpolitik werden ebenso behandelt. Auf eine Darlegung der multikausalen Ursachen der einzelnen internationalen Konflikte habe ich bewusst verzichtet, da es den Rahmen dieser Arbeit sprengen würde.

Whitney Houston
HK$ 27.00

About THE Book Known simply as The Voice, Whitney Houston enchanted the entire world with her epic vocal gift. Her exuberant performances, beauty, and acting talent quickly catapulted her to the highest echelons of fame and fortune, and during her lifetime she won more awards than any other female vocalist. Tony Bennett put it best on his twitter feed: "Whitney Houston was the greatest singer I've ever heard, and she will be truly missed." "Certain voices stand like monuments upon the landscape of twentieth century pop, defining the architecture of their times, sheltering the dreams of millions, and inspiring the climbing careers of countless imitators. Whitney Houston owns one of those voices," wrote Ann Powers of the Los Angeles Times. What was it about her voice that created such an international sensation? Listen to the excellent montage of Houston's greatest moments at People.com and you'll immediately understand. Her enormously wide range, gorgeous timber, and strong resonance made her voice sound almost supernatural. She could trill to treble F, extend down to G, and drop below middle C. One of the most celebrated songs of Houston's career, her famous remake of Dolly Parton's "I Will Always Love You," showcased her powerful gift. Houston popularized the song at the height of her fame in the music video she recorded for the 1992 movie The Bodyguard. Houston also broke racial barriers when she rose to the top of the mainstream entertainment business. From her young modeling days to her later incredibly successful movie career, she always did it better and made more money than almost everyone else in Hollywood. As Jimmy Jam noted, "To me, Whitney was the next person, after Diana Ross, who for a lot of little girls was sort of that bright light called positive African-American beauty and talent. When you look at someone like Beyonce, you know the influence someone like Whitney had on that." Meet THE Author Kimberly Hudson is a professional writer who live

In addition to learning how better to understand (and enjoy!) classical music, The History of Classical Music For Beginners will help you will learn of some of the more interesting and sometimes comical stories behind the music and composers.

And did you also know that only a small portion of "classical music" is even technically Classical? These interesting, insightful facts and more are yours to discover in The History of Classical Music For Beginners.

Understanding the Classical Music Profession
HK$ 406.00 HK$ 451.00
Kobo
Understanding the Classical Music Profession is an essential resource for educators, practitioners and researchers who seek to understand the careers of classically-trained musicians, and the extent to which professional practice is reflected within existing classical performance-based music education and training. Taking Australia as a case-study, Dawn Bennett outlines how Australia is now a service economy, and an important component of service provision is in the culture and recreation industries. Despite this, employment in culture and recreation is poorly understood and a lack of cultural intelligence contributes to a less than satisfactory environment that inhibits the creative potential of cultural practitioners. Musicians in the twenty-first century require a broad and evolving base of skills and knowledge to sustain their careers as cultural practitioners. Bennett maintains that a musician cannot be simply defined as a performer, but that a musician is someone who works within the profession of music in one or more specialist fields. The perception of a musician as a multi-skilled professional working within a portfolio career has significant implications for policy, funding, education and training, and for practitioners and students seeking to achieve sustainable careers. This indispensable book provides a comprehensive analysis of life as a musician, from education and training to professional practice as well as revealing the structure of the Australian cultural industries. Although Australia is the focus of the book, the basis of the research originates from many different places and most of the issues discussed relate directly to other countries throughout the world.

Die Entwicklung des 'Generalplans Ost'

Kobo
Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2006 im Fachbereich Geschichte Europa - Deutschland - Nationalsozialismus, II. Weltkrieg, Note: 1,3, Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster (Neuere und Neueste Geschichte), Veranstaltung: Hauptseminar, 22 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Einleitung Bereits während des Ersten Weltkriegs formierte sich, basierend auf gesellschaftlichen Denkstrukturen wie dem Sozialdarwinismus, die Auffassung, 'Deutschland könne neben den konkurrierenden Weltmächten Usa, England und Russland nur durch Erweiterung seines Siedlungs- und Wirtschaftsraumes bestehen'. Darauf aufbauend zählten vor allem 'Lebensraum' und 'Autarkie' zu den Schlüsselbegriffen der nationalsozialistischen Ideologie, wobei die Bedeutung und Qualität dieser Begrifflichkeiten vor dem Hintergrund der rassenpolitisch und sozialdarwinistisch geprägten Weltanschauung des Nationalsozialismus und der damaligen Gesellschaft zu beurteilen sind. Die nationalsozialistische Politik zielte dementsprechend auf ein wirtschaftlich autarkes und militärisch unbesiegbares GroBreich, das den europäischen Kontinent beherrschen und der deutschen 'Herrenrasse' neuen 'Lebensraum im Osten' bieten sollte. In diesem Zusammenhang bildete nun der 'Generalplan Ost' eine Brücke zwischen rassenideologischer Programmatik, imperialistischen Interessen und wissenschaftlicher Expertise, da er sich mit den nationalsozialistischen Planungen für die Länder Osteuropas nach dem angenommenen Sieg im Zweiten Weltkrieg befasst. Der Begriff 'Generalplan Ost' ist jedoch keinesfalls eine eindeutige Bezeichnung, sondern umfasst verschiedene Planungsstufen und Varianten der Ostraumplanung. Insgesamt beschreibt der Generalplan Ost 'die mittelfristige nationalsozialistische Kriegszielpolitik und die Utopie einer rassischen 'Neuordnung' Europas mit dem Ausgangspunkt der ländlichen Siedlung.' Alle Entwürfe des 'Generalplans Ost' zeichnen sich jedoch dadurch aus, dass sie die geographische Ausdehnung sowie die

Conversations with Whitney Houston, What Really Happened At The Beverly Hilton
HK$ 63.00
Kobo
Whitney Houston is one of the best-selling musical artists of all times. Her career, life and the records she sold, who she married and who she left behind is well documented. This amazing talent sadly passed away on February 9th, 2012 at the young age of forty eight, her life and career fatally colliding in a hotel room at the Beverly Hilton. In this eBook she makes contact and clears any doubts about her passing, addiction to drugs, husband and musical career but it is not primarily about these events, she has a clear and passionate message for her daughter. There are a number of references specifically directed to her daughter, Bobbi Kristina to read and find comfort as well as understanding the connection between them. It is a message from a loving mother who wishes to speak to her from beyond the physical and explain her passing. The spirits of Whitney and Bobbi Kristina will always be intertwined. They are too close not to. Whitney did not pass over in the usual way with her spirit leaving her body and moving into the light. She is currently earth bound in the ethereal awaiting her daughter's acknowledgement of the love of their union. She tells us that she left unexpectedly and could not say goodbye and this is her chance to communicate and eventually complete her passage to the other side. What proof do we have that Whitney is actually speaking through Sussan the host? She tells us that her mother Cissy will know and her daughter will recognize the familiar chatter at times. Even though Sussan and I were not followers of Whitney's career, we loved the film 'The Bodyguard' as most of the world did. We knew little bits of her life here in the Southern Hemisphere through the press but this is not about the mega star Whitney Houston, this is about a grieving mother who misses her daughter and did not get her opportunity to say goodbye in her own way. This message is hers and hers alone. As a channeler Sussan allows the non-physical entity, in this case Whitney Houston,

In Creating Country Music, Richard Peterson traces the development of country music and its institutionalization from Fiddlin' John Carson's pioneering recordings in Atlanta in 1923 to the posthumous success of Hank Williams. Peterson captures the free-wheeling entrepreneurial spirit of the era, detailing the activities of the key promoters who sculpted the emerging country music scene. More than just a history of the music and its performers, this book is the first to explore what it means to be authentic within popular culture. "[Peterson] restores to the music a sense of fun and diversity and possibility that more naive fans (and performers) miss. Like Buck Owens, Peterson knows there is no greater adventure or challenge than to 'act naturally.'"-Ken Emerson, Los Angeles Times Book Review "A triumphal history and theory of the country music industry between 1920 and 1953."-Robert Crowley, International Journal of Comparative Sociology "One of the most important books ever written about a popular music form."-Timothy White, Billboard Magazine

The Story of British Classical Music
HK$ 58.00
Kobo
The story of British classical music extends over more than a thousand years. A distinctive national tone was identifiable already in medieval times, and in the fifteenth century Dunstable was a leading international figure. The Renaissance saw the emergence of great composers such as Tallis, Byrd and Gibbons, and the seventeenth century was lit up by the brief but brilliant career of Purcell. After a long period dominated by composers from abroad, British creativity reasserted itself once more on the world stage, with Elgar and Vaughan Williams. Their successors, Britten and Tippett, opened the way for the crowded and diverse scene of the present day. British writer and broadcaster Anthony Burton traces this history in an informative e-text.

Iranian Classical Music
HK$ 885.00 HK$ 983.00
Kobo
Questions of creativity, and particularly the processes which underlie creative performance or 'improvisation', form some of the central areas of interest in current musicology. Yet the predominant discourses on which musicological thought in this area are based have rarely been challenged. In this book Laudan Nooshin interrogates musicological discourses of creativity from the perspective of critical theory and postcolonial studies, examining their ideological underpinnings, the relationships of alterity which they sustain, and the profound implications for our understanding of creative processes in music. The repertoire which forms the book's main focus is Iranian classical music, a tradition in which the performer plays a central creative role. Addressing a number of issues regarding the nature of musical creativity, the author explores both the discourses through which ideas about creativity are constructed, exchanged and negotiated within this tradition, and the practice by which new music comes into being. For the latter she compares a number of performances by musicians playing a range of instruments and spanning a period of more than 30 years, focusing on one particular section of repertoire, dastg?h Seg?h, and providing transcriptions of the performances as the basis for analytical exploration of the music's underlying compositional principles. This book is about understanding musical creativity as a meaningful social practice. It is the first to examine the ways in which ideas about tradition, authenticity, innovation and modernity in Iranian classical music form part of a wider social discourse on creativity, and in particular how they inform debates regarding national and cultural identity.

Make A Sound Investment IN Classical MUSICWho are the ten most important classical composers? Who in the world was Palestrina? Why did Stravinsky's "Rite of Spring" cause a riot? Which five of each important composer's works should you buy? What is a concerto and how does it differ from a sonata?Maybe you don't know the answers to these questions; author Phil Goulding certainly didn't. When Goulding first tried to learn about classical music, he found himself buried in an avalanche of technical terms and complicated jargon-so he decided to write the book he couldn't find. The result is a complete classical music education in one volume. Comprehensive, discriminating, and delightfully irreverent, Classical Music provides such essential information as:* Rankings of the top 50 composers (Bach is #1. Borodin is #50) * A detailed and anecdotal look at each composer's life and work * The five primary works of each composer and specific recommended CDs for each. * Further great works of each composer-if you really like him * Concise explanations of musical terminology, forms, and periods * A guide to the parts and history of the symphony orchestra "This book uses every conceivable gimmick to immerse readers in the richness of classical music: lists, rankings, sidebars devoted to lively anecdotes, and catchy leads."-The Washington Post"One terrific music appreciation book. The information is surprisingly detailed but concisely presented. Goulding's writing style is breezy yet mature.[He] has raised music appreciation from a racket to a service."-The Arizona Daily StarFrom the Trade Paperback edition.

But with hundreds of recordings released every year, discovering the jewels is a challenge, for newcomers as well as for connoisseurs. New York Times classical music critic Allan Kozinn offers the ultimate collector's guide, packed with a rich history of the composers and performers who stir our souls.

These original essays on the one hundred greatest recorded classical works provide both practical guidance for building a library and deep insight into the transcendent power of music itself.

Compare and Contrast: Baroque vs. Classical Music

Essay from the year 2003 in the subject Musicology, University of Phoenix, 4 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: At first glance, the Baroque music period and Classical music periods seem to be very much alike. They do, in fact, have many similarities, for instance, the same basic orchestral and chamber ensembles. However, by carefully analyzing each period, distinct differences can be found. The word 'Baroque' comes from the Italian word barocco, which literally translates to bizarre, however some feel that when dealing with the arts, exuberant is closer to the aim of the translation, and exuberant is a word that perfectly fits this style of music. Although Baroque was first used to describe ornately decorated buildings in Austria and Germany, it quickly became used to describe a similarly ornate period of music.

Beim Vergleich der Rezensionen in beiden deutschen Staaten soll es vor allem darauf ankommen, festzustellen, wo von den Rezensenten unterschiedliche Schwerpunkte gesetzt wurden, inwieweit die Kritiker zu unterschiedlichen Werturteilen kamen und wie sie dies begründeten. Um jedoch die bloBe Gegenüberstellung der kritischen Reaktionen in beiden Ländern zu vermeiden, wurde hier eine thematisch herangehende Arbeitsweise gewählt. Es wurden vier Themen ausgewählt, denen jeweils ein Kapitel dieser Arbeit gewidmet ist. Im ersten Teil der Arbeit wird auf die Stellung des Künstlers in der Gesellschaft eingegangen. In diesem Rahmen wird zuerst die Biermann-Affäre und deren Folgen auf die kulturpolitische Situation in der DDR zur Zeit der Veröffentlichung dargestellt. Der darauf folgende Teil der Arbeit geht auf das Verständnis des 'Kulturerbes' in der DDR und auf die besondere Stellung der Romantik innerhalb dieses Erbes ein. Weiterführend wird im dritten Teil auf die Eigenschaften des 'sozialistischen Realismus' eingegangen, der die von offizieller Seite vorgegebene Methode für den sozialistischen Schriftsteller war. Im letzten Teil der Arbeit wird dargestellt, wie Christa Wolf in Kein Ort. Nirgends an die noch zu überwindende Diskrepanz zwischen der Realität der DDR-Gesellschaft und den sozialistischen Idealen erinnert.

The World of Music

Where would the world be without music? It would still be around, but it would be rather empty and dull. Music is more than just a bunch of sounds put together for us to listen to; music is an art form that expresses many things in our lives in a beautiful manner. Music expresses emotions and paints pictures that our eyes can never see. Not only does music express emotions however, it can also induce it – painting a feeling that we can relate with, as seen in movies. Fight scenes are often accompanied by loud exciting music, whereas horror scenes after often accompanied by high pitched whines that cause anxiety.

The R&B genre has its roots in the blues and jazz genres, which was then very synonymous with the African-American society in the past. Similarly to blues, R&B lyrics usually tell of a sad tale, a style which originated from the African-American's painful experience of the past. Famous R&B singers today are Mary J. Blige, Usher, and Rihana – among others.
