This book was released on 2019-12-05 with total page 747 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Choral-Orchestral Repertoire: A Conductor's Guide offers an expansive compilation of choral orchestral works from 1600 to the present. Synthesizing Jonathan Green’s earlier six volumes on this repertoire, this edition updates and adds to the over 750 oratorios, cantatas, choral symphonies, masses, secular works for large and small ensembles, and numerous settings of liturgical and biblical texts for a wide variety of vocal and instrumental combinations. Each entry includes a brief biographical sketch of the composer, approximate duration, text sources, performing forces, currently available editions, and locations of manuscript materials, as well as descriptive commentary, discography, and bibliography. Unique to this edition are practitioner’s evaluations of the performance issues presented in each score. These include the range, tessitura, and nature of each solo role, and a determination of the difficulty of the choral and orchestral portions of each composition. There is also a description of the specific challenges, staffing, and rehearsal expectations related to the performance of each work. Choral-Orchestral Repertoire: A Conductor's Guide is an essential resource for conductors and students of conducting as they search for repertoire appropriate to their needs and the abilities of their ensembles.

Download or read book Operas in English PDF or another Format written by Margaret Ross Griffel and published by Scarecrow Press. This book was released on 2012-12-21 with total page 1015 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Although many opera dictionaries and encyclopedias are available, very few are devoted exclusively to operas in a single language. In this revised and expanded edition of Operas in English: A Dictionary, Margaret Ross Griffel brings up to date her original work on operas written specifically to an English text (including works both originally prepared in English, as well as English translations). Since its original publication in 1999, Griffel has added nearly 800 entries to the 4,300 from the original volume, covering the world of opera in the English language from 1634 through 2011. Listed alphabetically by letter, each opera entry includes alternative titles, if any; a full, descriptive title; the number of acts; the composer’s name; the librettist’s name, the original language of the libretto, and the original source of the text, with the source title; the date, place, and cast of the first performance; the date of composition, if it occurred substantially earlier than the premiere date; similar information for the first U.S. (including colonial) and British (i.e., in England, Scotland, or Wales) performances, where applicable; a brief plot summary; the main characters (names and vocal ranges, where known); some of the especially noteworthy numbers cited by name; comments on special musical problems, techniques, or other significant aspects; and other settings of the text, including non-English ones, and/or other operas involving the same story or characters (cross references are indicated by asterisks). Entries also include such information as first and critical editions of the score and libretto; a bibliography, ranging from scholarly studies to more informal journal articles and reviews; a discography; and information on video recordings. Griffel also includes four appendixes, a selective bibliography, and two indexes. The first appendix lists composers, their places and years of birth and death, and their operas included in the text as entries; the second does the same for librettists; the third records authors whose works inspired or were adapted for the librettos; and the fourth comprises a chronological listing of the A–Z entries, including as well as the date of first performance, the city of the premiere, the short title of the opera, and the composer. Griffel also include a main character index and an index of singers, conductors, producers, and other key figures.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Tucked away in the northern woods of Michigan is one of the world's most renowned schools for the arts. Conceived initially as a small summer camp for talented high school musicians, Interlochen Center for the Arts now ranks among the most respected schools in the world. In Interlochen: A Home for the Arts, Dean Boal, President of Interlochen from 1989 to 1995, presents a richly detailed and never-before-told story of Interlochen's struggles with artistic stresses, financial woes, and internal problems. This thoroughly researched presentation based on documents from the Bentley Historical Library, Interlochen archives, and many interviews offers an in-depth view of the school from its modest beginnings under Joseph Maddy to the present. Boal decribes the critical Supreme Court battle with the musicians' union, when James Petrillo banned national radio broadcasts and all professional musicians from Interlochen. He shows how the University of Michigan rescued Interlochen during this period and stabilized the institution for the opening of the Interlochen Arts Academy and a public radio station. He chronicles the few stormy years of the presidency of Karl Haas, an acclaimed broadcaster. The story of Interlochen is enriched by archival photographs of the founders, artists, and students, complementing this engaging story of a Michigan gem.
