Egyptians (3rd Edition - Revised) - Paperback

2009, ISBN: 9780500280362

Hardcover, ID: 316003155

London: W. B. Clive / University Tutorial Press, 1917. part two only: starting with the works of John Milton, and covering a period up until the year 1832. Red cloth boards showing minor wear, sunned on spine. Light foxing to first few pages and edges of page block; occasional very light pencil annotation; contents otherwise clean and sound throughout. Third Edition, Sixth Impression. hardcover. Good/No dust jacket. Used., W. B. Clive / University Tutorial Press, 1917, USA: Santorella Publications, 2009 Debussy’s Clair de Lune & Reverie, published by Santorella Publications, is arranged by Jonathon Robbins at the late-beginner to early-intermediate level and includes a performance CD. These masterpieces provide an exceptional display of talent possessed by Claude Debussy and the stylistic impact he had in moving the Romantic Era towards Impressionism. Clair de Lune, the third and most famous movement from Debussy’s Suite Bergamasque was composed in 1890 when Debussy was 28 years old; this masterpiece was not published until 1903. For decades, Clair de Lune has been featured in films, commercials, and television shows and has most recently experienced a popular revival in movies such as Ocean’s Eleven and Twilight. It is widely believed that Debussy was inspired by the Paul Verlaine poem of the same name. The quiet, rolling melody and fantastical nature of the mood it evokes speaks to the dream-like landscape that Verlaine references where costumed figures dance and play in the moonlight, whereas Reverie is indicative of his stylistic approach. Debussy once said, “Music is made up of colors and rhythms. The rest is a lot of humbug, invented by frigid imbeciles.” No piece exemplifies his conviction better than Rêverie. Debussy’s use of melodic transitions, arpeggios, dynamics and tempo creates a feast for the senses. Though he dedicated much of his life to Orchestral, Chamber, and Operatic works, Debussy left an indelible mark on the piano world with his piano masterworks. Clair de Lune may be the most popular and recognizable of his piano works, but Rêverie is the most colorful and significant example of the Romantic period evolving into Impressionism. Claude Debussy was born in St. Germain-en-Laye, France, on August 22, 1862; died in Paris, France on March 25, 1918. Although he disagreed with the title, Debussy is often regarded as the creator of musical impressionism. He denied that his aims should be described as such. However, it is undeniable that after his early regard for Wagner vanished, he came under the influence of Mallarme, Verlains, etc., and coloring became more important to him than form. Debussy’s use of the pentatonic and whole-tone scales as well as consecutive intervals of various kinds, lent his music an uncommon coloring. Since his style lends itself to imitation, many feel that it is a dead-end that leads to no further developments. Yet successful composers like Ravel, Bartok and Stravinsky have all found inspiration in Debussy’s pieces. Instead of leading to further developments in Impressionism, the composers turned it in new directions such as Neo-Classicism, Expressionism, Serial Music, etc., Santorella Publications, 2009, USA: Santorella Publications, 2009 Debussy’s Clair de Lune & Reverie, published by Santorella Publications, is transcribed by Jonathon Robbins. These un-edited “Concert Originals” are perfect recital, concert or audition pieces for an intermediate to advanced pianist and includes a performance CD.

Trade Paperback. Used - Very Good. 'The best single account of ancient Egyptian history and culture that is available'.--'Antiquity'. 140 illustrations, 12 in color. Ancient Egypt may have been, to paraphrase Herodotus, 'the gift of the Nile', but Egypt's civilization was no less the product of her god incarnate, the pharaoh. These twin themes -- the overwhelming importance of the annual inundation of the Nile and the rise and fall over three thousand years of the power of the divine king -- provide the unifying thread running through the fourth edition of this classic text. The late Cyril Aldred was Keeper of the Department of Art and Archaeology at the Royal Museum of Scotland, and served as Associate Curator of the Department of Egyptian Art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Aidan Dodson, Visiting Fellow in Archaeology at the University of Bristol, has completely revised this 'masterpiece of compression' (Jacquetta Hawkes), carefully preserving Aldred's succinct and lucid style. Many significant and recent finds are investigated, and new thoughts on the first unification of Egypt, her early kings, and the Third Intermediate Period are included. The dating has been revised throughout, many new photographs have been incorporated, and a complete list of kings is included for the first time. Slight scratching/scuffing on cover. Book has minor shelf wear., Thames & Hudson
