  • Francisco Correa de Arauxoby Charles Jacobs

    Springer Netherlands 2012; Not Available

    Francisco Correa de Arauxo: how little does the name evoke for most musicians? Yet, this composer wrote music equal in interest and beauty to that of such better-known composers of his time as Bull, Titelouze, Gibbons, Sweelinck, and Frescobaldi. Unfortunately, Correa's music was published in a notation which, though excellent, was little-known beyond... more...

  • The Music of Central Africaby Rose Brandel

    Springer Netherlands 2012; Not Available

    Under the inspiring guidance of my mentor, Curt Sachs, this work was conceived, planned, and executed. It gained in dimension under the acute and patient perusal of Gustave Reese to whose brilliant propensity for clarity of thought and of style I owe a huge debt. Furthermore, the helpful suggestions made by Martin Bernstein and by J an LaRue are gratefully... more...

  • Ethno-Musicologyby Jaap Kunst

    Springer Netherlands 2012; Not Available

    This booklet hardly needs a preface; the contents, I think, speak for themselves. It contains a short and carefully brought up to date resume of all that I, as a private University Lecturer in Amsterdam, have tried to teach my pupils. It is intended as a general introduction to ethno-musicology, before going on to the study of the forms of separate... more...

  • Perfecting Sound Foreverby Greg Milner

    Granta Publications 2011; US$ 13.90

    From our CD collections to iPods bursting with MP3s to the hallowed vinyl of DJs, recordings are the most common way we experience music. Perfecting Sound Forever tells the story of recorded music, introducing us to the innovators, musicians and producers who have affected the way we hear our favourite songs, from Thomas Edison to Phil Spector.

  • Birth School Metallica Deathby Ian Winwood; Paul Brannigan

    Faber & Faber 2013; US$ 9.99

    Metallica have sold in excess of 100 million albums and won seven Grammys. Their journey from scuzzy Los Angeles garages to the stages of the world's biggest stadia has been an epic and often traumatic one, and one of the few truly great rock 'n' roll sagas. No music writers have been afforded greater access to Metallica over the years than... more...

  • Folk Songs Hawaii Singsby John M. Kelly

    Tuttle Publishing 1963; US$ 6.99

    Folk Songs Hawaii Sings is a sparkling compilation of melodies from the islands of Polynesia together with a variety of folk songs that countless Asian people have brought with them to their new home in the Hawaiian Islands. In one sense it is a musical picture of the renowned harmonious blend of people who reside in Hawaii today; in another,... more...

  • Kraftwerkby Tim Barr

    The future of modern music began in Dusseldorf in 1970, when an avant-garde German band, the Organisation re-invented themselves as Kraftwerk and set in motion a train of events which introduced a whole new language into popular culture. By pre-dating electro, house, ambient and techno by more than two decades, they are quite simply the most influentual... more...

  • Musorgsky and His Circleby Stephen Walsh

    Faber & Faber 2013; US$ 23.99

    The extraordinary group of Russian composers who came together in St Petersburg in the 1860s - long known as 'The Mighty Handful', but, as the moguchaya kuchka, better translated as 'the great little heap' - gave rise to one of the most fascinating and colourful stories in all musical history. Stephen Walsh, author of a major biography of their... more...
