The Pelican History of Music Volume I: Ancient Forms to Polyphony, Alec Robertson and Denis Stevens [Editor]
8 Alec Robertson and Denis Stevens [Editor] The Pelican History of Music Volume I: Ancient Forms to Polyphony
Pelican / Penguin Books 232590 Great Britain 1966 Reprint Softcover Good Condition Pelican Books A492.The '1066' of our music lies somewhere in the Middle Ages, when the Western tradition seems to spring, fully armed with tonality, harmony and rhythm, from the head of medieval man. It is easy to forget that musical languages had been evolving, in both the East and the West, for at least 5000 years before music in Europe began to assume the laws we are tempted to regard as perfect and unalterable. This first volume in the Pelican History of Music traces the story of music from the earliest known forms as far as the beginnings of the polyphonic period in the first half of the 15th century. A full section on non-Western music indicates how our tradition is linked with or has evolved from the forms of music prevailing in other parts of the world. 343 pages. Quantity Available: 1.

The Threepenny Opera [Methuen Student Editions], Bertolt Brecht [Translated by Ralph Manhei and John Willett]
20 Bertolt Brecht [Translated by Ralph Manhei and John Willett] The Threepenny Opera [Methuen Student Editions]
Methuen 234765 2005 041377452X / 9780413774521 Softcover Good Condition This Student Edition of Brecht's satire on the capitalist society of the Weimar Republic features an extensive introduction and commentary that includes a plot summary, discussion of the context, themes, characters, style and language as well as questions for further study and notes on words and phrases in the text. It is the perfect edition for students of theatre and literature.Based on John Gay's eighteenth century Beggar's Opera, The Threepenny Opera, first staged in 1928 at the Theater am Schiffbauerdamm in Berlin, is a vicious satire on the bourgeois capitalist society of the Weimar Republic, but set in a mock-Victorian Soho. It focuses on the feud between Macheaf - an amoral criminal - and his father in law, a racketeer who controls and exploits London's beggars and is intent on having Macheaf hanged. Despite the resistance by Macheaf's friend the Chief of Police, Macheaf is eventually condemned to hang, until in a comic reversal the queen pardons him and grants him a title and land. With Kurt Weill's unforgettable music - one of the earliest and most successful attempts to introduce jazz to the theatre - it became a popular hit throughout the western world. The text is presented in the trusted translation by Ralph Manheim and John Willett. 131 pages. Cover has a few creases. Cover edges rubbed. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.
