"This book focuses on fifty of the most important entertainers in the history of country music, from its beginnings in the folk music of early America through the 1970s. Each entry includes a brief biography of the chosen artist with special emphasis on experiences which influenced their musical careers"--Provided by publisher.
"This volume contains interviews with twenty-six of the most prominent oboists from around the world. The chapters are in prose format and highlight different aspects of each musician's career, focusing on musicianship and pedagogy in ways that are applicable to all musicians. The interviews contain topics such as creating musical interpretations and shaping phrases, the relationship of vocal to instrumental music, taking orchestral auditions and being a good ensemble player/colleague. The subjects describe their pedagogy and their thoughts on breathing and support on wind instruments, developing finger technique and creating a useful warm-up routine. The oboists discuss their ideals in reedmaking, articulation and vibrato. They also share stories from their life and careers. The oboists and English hornists profiled from North America profiled are Pedro Diaz, Elaine Douvas and Nathan Hughes (Metropolitan Opera Orchestra), John Ferrillo (Boston Symphony Orchestra), Carolyn Hove (LA Philharmonic), Richard Killmer (Eastman School), Nancy Ambrose King (University of Michigan), Frank Rosenwein and Robert Walters (Cleveland Orchestra), Humbert Lucarelli (soloist), Grover Schiltz (formerly Chicago Symphony), Eugene Izotov (Chicago Symphony, originally from Russia), Allan Vogel (LA Chamber Orchestra), David Weiss (formerly LA Philharmonic), Randall Wolfgang (New York City Ballet and formerly Orpheus Chamber Orchestra), Alex Klein (Brazil, formerly Chicago Symphony and currently Calgary, CA), and Sarah Jeffrey, Toronto Symphony Orchestra. The performers based in Europe are Neil Black, Nicholas Daniel, and Gordon Hunt (England); Maurice Bourgue, and David Walter (France); Thomas Indermühle (Switzerland); László Hadady (Hungary and France); and Omar Zoboli (Italy). From Australia is Diana Doherty of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra"--

This volume comprises a selection of papers presented at the first International C- ference on Mathematics and Computation in Music – mcm2007. The conference took place at the Staatliches Institut für Musikforschung PK – National Institute for Music Research in Berlin during May 18–20, 2007 and was jointly organized by the National Institute for Music Research Berlin and the Society of Mathematics and Computation in Music. The papers were selected for the conference by the program committee and classfied into talks and posters. All papers underwent further selection, revision and elaboration for this book publication. The articles cover a research field which is heterogeneous with respect to content, scientific language and methodology. On one hand, this reflects the heterogeneity and richness of the musical subject domain itself. On the other hand, it exemplifies a t- sion which has been explicitly intended by both the organizers and the founders of the society, namely to support the integration of mathematical and computational - proaches to music theory, composition, analysis and performance. The subdivision into three parts reflects the original structure of the program. These parts are opened by invited papers and followed by talks and posters.
Vols. for 1871-76, 1913-14 include an extra number, The Christmas bookseller, separately paged and not included in the consecutive numbering of the regular series.
This entertaining history of Cuba and its music begins with the collision of Spain and Africa and continues through the era of Miguelito Valdes, Arsenio Rodriguez, Benny More, and Perez Prado. It offers a behind-the-scenes examination of music from a Cuban point of view, unearthing surprising, provocative connections and making the case that Cuba was fundamental to the evolution of music in the New World. The ways in which the music of black slaves transformed 16th-century Europe, how the "claves" appeared, and how Cuban music influenced ragtime, jazz, and rhythm and blues are revealed. Music lovers will follow this journey from Andalucia, the Congo, the Calabar, Dahomey, and Yorubaland via Cuba to Mexico, Puerto Rico, Saint-Domingue, New Orleans, New York, and Miami. The music is placed in a historical context that considers the complexities of the slave trade; Cuba's relationship to the United States; its revolutionary political traditions; the music of Santeria, Palo, Abakua, and Vodu; and much more.
