Описание: The three volumes of The Masterwork in Music present complete English translations of major works by Austrian music theorist Heinrich Schenker, one of the twentieth century's leading figures in the field. First published in German between 1925 and 1930, these essays represent Schenker's greatest writings in analysis prior to the 1935 definitive formulation of his theory of music in Der freie Satz (Free Composition). This new publication of the long-awaited English translation, which first appeared in the distinguished Cambridge University Press edition, provides a valuable resource for scholars. Editorial annotations and elucidations by Dr.William Drabkin and his translators offer additional insights. Volume One includes analyses of keyboard pieces by Bach, Scarlatti, Chopin, and Beethoven, along with studies of solo violin music by Bach. Volume Two contains a major essay on Mozart's Symphony No. 40 in G minor and shorter studies of works by Bach, Haydn, and Reger. Volume Three's contents include Schenker's celebrated analysis of Beethoven's "Eroica" Symphony and other works.
"A generous sampling of photographs . . . includes wonderful spreads." -- Brooklyn Daily Eagle This original work of photojournalism history features over 100 images from the George Grantham Bain collection in the Library of Congress, a photographic repository of one of the United States' earliest news agencies. Based in New York City, the Bain News Service dealt in a worldwide array of photographs, many of which offer rare glimpses of a vanished era in Gotham history. Michael Carlebach, a leading historian of photojournalism, searched the archives to assemble the most dramatic and revealing images of the metropolis during the first quarter of the twentieth century. These striking photos retain the immediacy and interest of the breaking news stories they accompanied: scenes of police activity and street life; activities related to immigration, politics, and public health; and portraits of children and celebrities. Topics range from everyday episodes to historic incidents, including the tragic Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire of 1911. An informative Introduction offers background on the Bain News Service, and extensive captions describe the newsworthy events depicted in the photographs.
Описание: This captivating gallery offers rare glimpses of Japanese culture during the early years of the 20th century. Drawn from popular women's magazines of the Taish period, its kuchi-e (frontispiece pictures) of bijin (beauties) represent a variety of artists, from the visual poetry of famous painters to more prosaic efforts by anonymous designers. Printed in the era's latest techniques of color lithography and offset printing, these kuchi-e bijin were created for mass production, yet they echo the form and appeal of woodblock prints from earlier generations. Their fashions are new enough to be exciting but sufficiently traditional to be reassuringly familiar. Embracing noble ideals and modern reality, the kuchi-e bijin suggest both the aspirations and the mundane truths of their audience, combining the sense of fine art and the sensibilities of popular illustration. Kendall H. Brown is Associate Professor of Asian Art History at California State University, Long Beach. His informative captions and Preface explore the images' literary content, social context, and the technologies used in their production. A valuable resource for scholars of Japanese art and period book illustration, this volume is also of tremendous interest to anyone with an eye for beauty.
