Course in Musical Composition, Volume 1 (Hardcover): Vincent D'Indy Course in Musical Composition, Volume 1 (Hardcover)

"The first English translation of lectures by a French contemporary of Debussy and Ravel"

French composer and educator Vincent d'Indy differed from contemporaries Debussy and Ravel in his conservative political and philosophical ideas and in his musical style. This redaction and English translation of his "Cours de composition musicale" includes the introductory lectures for the course he taught at the Schola Cantorum in Paris.

D'Indy's ideas about composition, best articulated in the lectures presented here, were unique in their combination of historical concepts and music theory. This is the first publication of d'Indy's work in English. In addition to a faithful translation, Gail Hilson Woldu provides annotations that clarify d'Indy's often complex concepts and correct his occasional errors of fact. In her introduction, Woldu places d'Indy in the world of French music education at the turn of the twentieth century, identifies the chief musical influences on the composer, and discusses the political and religious controversies surrounding the Schola Cantorum and the Paris Conservatoire. The book concludes with the pioneering work of d'Indy scholar Merle Montgomery, who was the first to translate the Cours into English. Her study offers a comparative framework for understanding d'Indy's place in the history of music composition and theory.

This volume introduces students and scholars of music history and composition to an influential teacher and prolific composer of the early twentieth century.

The great Victorian detective returns in this action thriller directed by Guy Ritchie and starring Robert Downey Jr (in a Golden Globe-winning performance), Jude Law, Rachel McAdams and Mark Strong. Based on a new story by producer Lionel Wigram using Arthur Conan Doyle's famous characters, the film follows Sherlock Holmes (Downey Jr) and his loyal assistant Dr Watson (Law) as they deal with a mysterious new nemesis: Lord Blackwood (Strong), a cult leader and Satanist who harbours the most deadly of intentions. Abandoning the accepted portrayals of Holmes and Watson, as perfected by Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce in the films of the 1930s and '40s, Downey Jr's Holmes is a modern, bohemian man of action and intellect, while Law's Watson is no longer the bumbling fool of old, but a much sharper character with an eye for the ladies and a taste for gambling.

Robert Johnson Perry
R332 Discovery Miles 3 320 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Folktales. Mythology. With illustrations by Chester Scott. In LIFE WITH THE LITTLE PEOPLE, Robert Johnson Perry weaves history, traditional information, family stories and his own fiction to create a facinating look into the magical world of the Little People...Follow him into this world. You will be enthralled. (--Gayle Ross) After a career as a chemical engineer, Perry, a Chickasaw Indian, was able to devote his time and energy to writing, dedicating himself to recording many of the stories passed on to him by Native American elders from various tribes. These stories are both fantastical and entirely possible. It's not so much that 'little people' exist, writes Perry in his introduction, or even that herbs were used, it's that simple faith is enough for healing to occur. The book is a magical reading experience for any reader, or, as we Muskogeans say--'Felep ah gez oschee '--they'll have a really good time. (--Will Hill, Kabitcha Feke Seko)

Robert Johnson, Timothy Clack
R1,720 Discovery Miles 17 200 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

No modern intervention is intended to endure indefinitely; indeed some fashion of exit is always envisioned from the outset. This commitment to an exit is normally informed by an exit strategy. Whilst strategies of closure have been scrutinised recently, not least in light of charges of defective intentions and planning, the relations between the strategies, operations and tactics of exit have not been contextualised. Focus on the local, specific and bottom-up manifestations of transitions offers significant enhances to historical, theoretical and applied understandings. This book is an introduction not just to the issues of transition, handover and withdrawal, but to exit as a package of theoretical concepts and how these have been understood, shaped and employed in historic and contemporary perspective. Drawing on a wide range of post-1945 examples derived from a variety of regions and periods, At the End of Military Intervention provides researchers and practitioners with a source book on what forms a crucial and often overlooked element of past and present interventions.
