  • Can't Stop Won't Stopby Jeff Chang; D.J. Kool Herc

    St. Martin's Press 2007; US$ 20.99

    Forged in the fires of the Bronx and Kingston, Jamaica, hip-hop became the Esperanto of youth rebellion and a generation-defining movement. In a post-civil rights era defined by deindustrialization and globalization, hip-hop crystallized a multiracial, polycultural generation's worldview, and transformed American politics and culture. But that epic... more...

  • Focus: Music, Nationalism, and the Making of the New Europeby Philip V. Bohlman

    Taylor and Francis 2010; US$ 61.95

    Two decades after the fall of communism in Eastern Europe and one decade into the twenty-first century, European music remains one of the most powerful forces for shaping nationalism. Using intensive fieldwork throughout Europe -- from participation in alpine foot pilgrimages to studies of the grandest music spectacle anywhere in the world, the Eurovision... more...

  • "Cashville" - Dilution of Original Country Music Identity through Increasing Commercializationby Stephanie Schäfer

    Diplomica Verlag 2012; US$ 32.54

    Hauptbeschreibung Where I come from, it's cornbread and chicken. This line from Alan Jackson's country hit defines the genre as the music of the American South. All its ambiguity set aside, the South stands proudly for its hospitality, politeness, sense of place and community. Family and religion are traditionally more important down there than in... more...

  • 'Food for Apollo'by Dorothy T. Potter

    Lehigh University Press 2011; US$ 64.99

    'Food for Apollo:' Cultivated Music in Antebellum Philadelphia details the evolution and significance in that city of what is often called 'classical' music. Performances in a variety of settings, from 'long rooms' in taverns to large theatres and concert halls, facilitated this process over approximately 100 years. Philadelphia's thriving music publishing... more...

  • "Majestas Mariae"by Christiane Wiesenfeldt

    Franz Steiner Verlag 2013; US$ 51.53

    Die Geschichte der musikalischen Marienverehrung ist so alt wie das Christentum selbst. Mit ihr verbanden sich Ansprüche aus der Volksfrömmigkeit ebenso wie aus der Institution Kirche: eine spannende und spannungsvolle Mischung, die Komponisten über Jahrhunderte inspirierte. Auch in die Messe hielt die Marienverehrung symbolisch Einzug. Sie schlug... more...

  • Aber mit Rock'N'Rollby Rolf Esser

    tredition 1753; US$ 6.05

    Für jemand, der es ernst meint mit der Rockmusik, gibt es gewiss nichts Schöneres, als in einer Band zu musizieren. Gemeinsam ist man stark. Es ist jedoch schwer, der Vielfalt der Anfangsprob-leme, die das Musizieren in Bands mit sich bringt, Herr zu werden. Dabei muss man deutlich feststellen, dass es zu allen in diesem Werk vertretenen Teilbereichen... more...

  • Balinese Discourses on Music and Modernizationby Brita Heimarck Renee

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 177.00

    While many Western scholars have discussed the technical aspects of Balinese music or the traditional contexts for performance, little has been written in Western languages about Balinese discourses on their music. This dissertation seeks to understand the experience of music in Bali according to Balinese voices through an analysis of oral and written... more...

  • The Dastgah Concept in Persian Musicby Hormoz Farhat

    Cambridge University Press 2004; US$ 36.00

    The tradition of Persian art music embodies twelve modal systems, known as dastgahs. Each dastgah represents a complex of skeletal melodic models on the basis of which a performer produces extemporised pieces. The dastgahs revolve around unspecified central nuclear melodies which the individual musician comes to know through experience and absorption.... more...

  • Der Blues der Frauen: Zur Rolle der Frau in einem Genre der populären Musikby Sandra Malik

    Diplomica Verlag 2013; US$ 23.14

    Blues- ein Begriff der nicht nur eine Musikform beschreibt. Oft auch als Devils Music deklariert, wird dem Blues die Seele der afroamerikanischen Bevölkerung zugesprochen. Immer geprägt von dem geradezu romantisierten Bild des authentifizierten Bluesmusikers: ländlich, männlich, einsam, ziellos, besitzlos, unkommerziell und durchdrungen von Kummer... more...
