This clearly written how-to book by master craftsman Franklin H. Gottshall allows woodworkers to construct handsome, useful furniture in the most highly regarded antique styles. Characterized by beauty and richness of design, each of 30 different projects -- all replicas of actual rare furniture -- can be completed by ambitious beginners as well as skilled crafters for only a fraction of what vintage originals would cost. Woodcrafters can choose from pieces spanning a wide variety of styles -- from a simple dovetailed box to an elegant Philadelphia Chippendale highboy. Included as well are directions for constructing a Dutch cupboard, refectory table, gateleg table, shelf top corner cupboard, Queen Anne hall table, Pennsylvania Dutch painted chest, and other distinctive pieces. Easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions are accompanied by photographs and drawings as well as front and end views and detailed sketches of parts and procedures. Decorative skills such as woodcarving, upholstering, finishing, and wrought-iron work are also fully described and related for each piece.
"It may be in fact that I have taken on a task that is too much for me: there is no precedent, so I am obliged to invent new forms." -- Claude Debussy. Unquestionably one of the most influential of modern composers, Claude Debussy (1862-1918) overturned traditional concepts of form, harmony, and coloring in creating a body of music characterized by innovation, individuality of style, and perfection of workmanship. Among his most popular, most performed, most recorded works are the three compositions reprinted in this volume: the revolutionary Prelude a l'apres-midi d'une faune, which, in a sense, "awakened" modern music; the exquisite Nocturnes, shimmering models of delicate impressionism; and La Mer, complex, suggestive, a masterpiece of orchestral texture. This Dover volume presents the complete scores of all three works -- reproduced from early French editions -- in one convenient source. Musicians and music lovers will appreciate this inexpensive edition of a trio of orchestral favorites: pieces that mark not only key points in the composer's personal progress but also in the progress of modern music as well.
Описание: This volume consists of both works with piano accompaniment as well as in full score.

"The essence of Debussy's musical personality is in the songs and they exhibit virtually every aspect of his art." Oscar Thompson," Debussy: Man and Artist." Had Claude Debussy (1862 1918) been exclusively a composer of songs, his musical reputation would have been assured. Although his output was not large, he achieved a new style in the setting of poetry and poetic prose an exquisite union of words and music characterized by innovation, simplicity, impeccable taste, and consummate workmanship. From such early favorites as "Beau Soir" and "Mandoline" his masterful later works, the composer achieved a new psychological penetration through understatement a music precisely imagined yet fluid, superbly constructed yet untrammeled by the past. This Dover volume contains a rich selection of 36 of Debussy's best songs, nearly a quarter century's worth of compositions that embody his exceptional empathy for poetry and his genius for expressing its essence in music. Contents include "Beau Soir," "Deux romances," "Mandoline," "Les Angelus," "Trois chansons de Bilitis," "Dans le jardin," "Cinq poemes de Baudelaire," and more. For singers, Debussy's songs offer special pleasure in their simplicity, making the song's message more easily conveyed. For pianists, the music presents interesting and independent melodies that contribute vastly to the atmosphere and expression of the text. For all lovers of art songs, those of Debussy are a brilliant and innovative addition to the genre. This volume, reproduced directly from original sheet music, makes them available at low cost to all devotees.

Описание: Like Chopin before him, Debussy found previously unexplored possibilities and refinements in the art of playing and composing for the piano. His compositions for piano four hands and for two pianos are among his most inventive and interesting works. This volume contains two suites Debussy composed specifically for piano four hands, his piano transcriptions deriving from two early choral works, and his own transcription for two pianos of his most famous orchestral work: Prelude, Cortege and Air de Danse from L'Enfant Prodigue (piano four hands) Printemps (piano four hands) Petite Suite (piano four hands) Prelude a l'apres-midi d'un faune (two pianos) Six Epigraphes Antiques (piano four hands) Ranging widely in mood, these works display both the brilliant pianism at the heart of Debussy's musical imagery and the composer's affinity for the unexpected--a quality that allowed many of his compositions to unfold like highly sophisticated improvisations. They are reprinted here from authoritative French editions, ready to challenge and delight pianists with their unique and innovative musical qualities.
