The story of the banjo's journey from Africa to the western hemisphere blends music, history, and a union of cultures. In Banjo Roots and Branches, Robert B. Winans presents cutting-edge scholarship that covers the instrument's West African origins and its adaptations and circulation in the Caribbean and United States. The contributors provide detailed ethnographic and technical research on gourd lutes and ekonting in Africa and the banza in Haiti while also investigating tuning practices and regional playing styles. Other essays place the instrument within the context of slavery, tell the stories of black banjoists, and shed light on the banjo's introduction into the African- and Anglo-American folk milieus. Wide-ranging and illustrated with twenty color images, Banjo Roots and Branches offers a wealth of new information to scholars of African American and folk musics as well as the worldwide community of banjo aficionados. Contributors: Greg C. Adams, Nick Bamber, Jim Dalton, George R. Gibson, Chuck Levy, Shlomo Pestcoe, Pete Ross, Tony Thomas, Saskia Willaert, and Robert B. Winans.

Fiddling for Norway - Revival and Identity (Paperback, New edition): Chris Goertzen Fiddling for Norway - Revival and Identity (Paperback, New edition)

R834 Discovery Miles 8 340 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Fiddling for Norway is an engrossing portrait of a fiddle-based folk revival in Norway, one that in many ways parallels contemporary folk institutions and festivals throughout the world, including American fiddling. It is a detailed case study in the politics of culture, the causes and purposes of folk revivals, and the cultivation of music to define identity.
The book begins with an investigation of the people and events important to Norwegian folk fiddling, tracing the history of Norwegian folk music and the growth and diversification of the folk music revival. The narrative takes us to fiddle clubs, concerts and competitions on the local, regional, and national levels, and shows how conflicting emphases--local vs. national identity, tradition vs. aesthetic qualities--continue to transform Norwegian folk music. Goertzen utilizes a large anthology of meticulously transcribed tunes to illustrate personal and regional repertoires, aspects of performance practice, melodic gesture and form, and tune relationships. Ethnomusicologists and readers who fiddle will enjoy both the music and the stories it tells.

"Few cello players currently before the public have enjoyed the kind of international success in all conceivable musical career roles as Janos Starker. In his lifetime, Starker has gained renown as teacher, soloist and orchestra player." Chicago Tribune

"Starker...remains one of the wonders of the musical world, an artist who finds innumerable ways to shape and color lines." Cleveland Plain Dealer

"Starker is not just a cellist. He is widely recognized as one of the finest of the last 50 years." Indianapolis Star

"Starker emerges here as the rare artist who respects the past but lives enthusiastically in the present... Essential. All readers; all levels." Choice

Janos Starker is universally acknowledged as one of the world s great musicians. Known for a flawless technique paired with expressive playing and interpretation, the Hungarian-born cellist is arguably also the premier teacher of his instrument in our time. String players flock to his masterclasses from all over the world, and cellists compete vigorously to study under him at the Indiana University School of Music. More than the consummate musician, however, Starker is also a raconteur and writer, occasionally quirky and droll, always witty and with a pointed opinion to share.

The World of Music According to Starker is a colorful autobiography spanning the author s fascinating life. From his early musical education during World War II in Hungary, to his world tours, educational philosophy, and recording and pedagogical legacy, Starker takes the reader on a riveting, entertaining, and informative journey. Included in the book are several of Starker s short stories and commentaries on world events, academia, and of course music that have appeared in newspapers, music periodicals, and trade magazines.

Also includes a bonus CD recording of Starker s last public recital, which is unavailable commercially and includes his only recording of the Strauss Sonata in F, Opus 6.

Included on the CD:
Richard Strauss, Sonata in F, Opus 6
Ludwig van Beethoven, Sonata in C major, Opus 102 no. 1
Johannes Brahms, Sonata in E minor, Opus 38
Franz Schubert, Sonatina in D, Opus 137 no. 1 (Starker edition)"
