This book was released on 2000 with total page 309 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "The rediscovery of Bretan and the revival of his music today are important for two reasons. The need for atonement - for the political injustice done to the man himself, in his own country and as an artist - is fairly obvious. But the recovery of his works is a cultural obligation we all must share, as we must with respect to all of Western culture's great artistic creations."--BOOK JACKET.

He tells us of his relationships with such legends as Mary Garden, Nadia Boulanger, Igor Stravinsky, and Ernest Ansermet.

Illustrations, bibliography, and a complete new discography round out this invaluable volume.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "In 1952, he put together an ensemble of engaging young singers and instrumentalists, who gave lively, expressive interpretations of medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque works. Their presentation of the liturgical drama The Play of Daniel won them international fame. Under Greenberg's leadership, they recorded extensively and toured Europe, the Soviet Union, and Latin America. At the height of his and Pro Musica's success, Noah Greenberg died at the age of 47. In Pied Piper, James Gollin not only relates Greenberg's tragically short, but highly colorful life story, but he sets the man in the rich context of America's rise to postwar political and cultural prominence."--Jacket.

Book excerpt: Robots That Talk and Listen provides a forward-looking examination of speech and language in robots from technical, functional, and social perspectives. Contributors address cultural foundations as well as the linguistic skills and technologies that robots need to function effectively in real-world settings. Among the most difficult and complex is the ability to understand and use language. Speech-enabled automata are already serving as interactive toys, teacher’s aides, and research assistants. These robots will soon be joined by personal companions, industrial co-workers, and military support automata. The social impact of these and other robots extends well beyond the specific tasks they perform. Contributors tackle the most knotty of those issues, notably acceptance of advanced, speech-enabled robots and developing ethical and moral controls for robots. Topics in this book include: •Language and Beyond: The True Meaning of “Speech Enabled” •Robots in Myth and Media •Enabling Robots to Converse •Language Learning by Automata •Handling Noisy Settings •Empirical Studies of Robots in Real-World Environments •Acceptance of Intelligent Robots •Managing Robots that Can Lie and Deceive •Envisioning a World Shared with Intelligent Robots

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In the late 1500s in Florence, aristocrats of the Renaissance renovated classical Greek dramas into dramatic musicals and gave birth to the first operas. After centuries of transformation, the opera is still appreciated as a historically dynamic paradigm of the fine arts. Composers of the twentieth century have worked hard to fashion a voice distinct from the romantic composers of the nineteenth century and the traditions that preceded them, and this volume explores the extent of their success. Beginning with a thorough introduction to the history of operatic forms and transformation, this book presents a comprehensive discussion of twentieth century opera. Giving ear to many composers and many styles--romantic and modern and assorted variations--the discussion includes such globally renowned composers as Strauss, Puccini, Prokofiev and Mascagni, as well as the esoteric works of less famous composers. Spanning as it does from Puccini's Tosca and Charpentier's Louise to Heggie's Dead Man Walking and Corigliano's The Ghosts of Versailles, twentieth century operatic form has something for every taste. The discussion is therefore structured chronologically and directed at exploring this complex diversity and ingenuity of twentieth-century styles. Examples from across the globe and firsthand commentary from contemporary operatic professionals complement the discussion. Concluding chapters comment upon the operatic presence in the twenty-first century and the future of operatic forms.
