Hector Berlioz (1803-1869), considered the father of modern orchestration, possessed an intuitive musical genius all the more remarkable for his limited formal musical education. A brilliant colorist, a master of the unexpected rhythmic break, he brought a new symphonic richness to Romantic music. Both damned and venerated by his contemporaries -- Mendelssohn considered him devoid of talent, Paganini declared him the one true heir to the spirit of Beethoven -- Berlioz seems to have sought in music a way to soothe and give voice to the turbulent psychological instabilities and contradictions of what has come to be called "program music" -- i.e., instrumental music with an extramusical significance. He strove to communicate musically the experiences, psychological themes, scenic description, and literary allusions more commonly associated with the confessional writings of Romantic poets. This Dover edition presents two of the greatest of these "program" pieces: the Symphonie Fantastique (1830) and Harold in Italy (1834). Here are the full scores of both major symphonic works -- painstakingly reproduced from the authoritative Breitkopf & H rtel edition, available for the first time in one convenient volume -- plus Berlioz's "program" for the Symphonie Fantastique. Musicians and music lovers everywhere will value this high-quality, inexpensive edition -- ideal for study and performance.
Описание: "No composer in musical history has taught the pianist more new and permanently valuable things," says "Grove's Dictionary of Music and Musicians," describing Impressionist Claude Debussy.

Twenty selections range from such fanciful pieces as the impudent "Golligwogg's cakewalk" and the misty "Sunken Cathedral" to the brilliant "Fireworks." A rich compilation of works by France's most innovative and influential composer, this convenient and modestly priced volume will be welcomed by pianists, students, teachers, and music lovers.

Описание: "Invaluable as a work of reference, in addition to being full of sound judgments and happy suggestions." Jacques Barzun, "MLA Notes "A distinguished musicologist explores 19th-century French art songs in this fascinating study of the melodies of Berlioz, Liszt, Bizet, Saint-Saens, Franck, Faure, and others. The songs are described and analyzed in terms of structure, style, prosody, and melo-harmonic features. Sensitive evaluations of the melodies include more than 250 musical examples. Author Frits Noske was the first musicologist to fully trace the origins and early development of the French art songs known as "melodie." He discusses the forms from which the genre evolved, intermediary compositions by Niedermeyer and Monpou, and the effect of Thomas Moore's "Irish Melodies." Additional topics include Berlioz's contribution to the emerging form, the influence of German song, the special problems of French-language prosody, and the changing role of the accompaniment. Music history and voice majors, musicologists, and music enthusiasts of all ages will appreciate this valuable guide to an unjustly neglected musical genre."

Описание: Toward the end of his life, Berlioz wrote to a friend: "If I were threatened with the destruction of the whole of my works save one, I should crave mercy for the Messe des morts." The composer's magnum opus is unrivaled in its grandeur, calling for huge orchestral and choral forces -- the original performance featured an assembly of 400 singers and players. From the brass fanfares of the "Day of Judgment" to the tender strains of "Agnus Dei," it is a work of pure celestial power. Berlioz's undeniable importance to both music history and the evolution of the art of orchestration makes a thorough study of his work essential for scholars, musicians, and music students. Attractive and affordable, this new choral score is the ideal source book of the composer's imaginative music.

Описание: Written between 1850 and 1854, L'enfance du Christ (The Childhood of Christ) was first performed under Berlioz's direction during the holiday season of 1854. The three-part work―consisting of Herod's Dream, The Flight into Egypt, and The Arrival at Sais ― is scored for seven solo voices, chorus, and orchestra. The singing text appears in French, German, and English. Unlike much of Berlioz's music, this music is restrained, lyrical, and delicate. Like La damnation de Faust ― another of the composer's celebrated choral works ― L'enfance du Christ combines dramatic action and theatricality with philosophical reflection and moments of serene contemplation. Although Berlioz was not an orthodox Christian, his portrayal of Christ's ultimate repose, O mon вme, is the nearest Berlioz ever came to a devoutly Christian mode of expression, according to The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians. Reproduced from an authoritative score, this volume offers musicians and music lovers a high-quality, inexpensive edition of a masterpiece of sacred music.
