The Art of Fugue

Bach Fugues for Keyboard, 1715-1750

Fugue for J. S. Bach was a natural language; he wrote fugues in organ toccatas and voluntaries, in masses and motets, in orchestral and chamber music, and even in his sonatas for violin solo. The more intimate fugues he wrote for keyboard are among the greatest, most influential, and best-loved works in all of Western music. They have long been the foundation of the keyboard repertory, played by beginning students and world-famous virtuosi alike. In a series of elegantly written essays, eminent musicologist Joseph Kerman discusses his favorite Bach keyboard fugues—some of them among the best-known fugues and others much less familiar. Kerman skillfully, at times playfully, reveals the inner workings of these pieces, linking the form of the fugues with their many different characters and expressive qualities, and illuminating what makes them particularly beautiful, powerful, and moving. These witty, insightful pieces, addressed to musical amateurs as well as to specialists and students, are beautifully augmented by a CD with new performances made specially for this volume. In addition to the complete scores for all the music discussed in the book, the CD features Karen Rosenak, piano, playing two preludes and fugues from TheWell-Tempered Clavier—C Major, book 1; and B Major, book 2—and recordings by Davitt Moroney of the Fughetta in C Major, BWV 952, on clavichord; the Fugue on "Jesus Christus unser Heiland," BWV 689, on organ; and the Fantasy and Fugue in A Minor, BWV 904, on harpsichord.

Napoleon's Defeat of the Habsburgs

“A very impressive piece of work, and it is unlikely to be surpassed for many years . . . A very valuable guide to Napoleon’s last great victory” ( With this third volume, John Gill brings to a close his magisterial study of the war between Napoleonic France and Habsburg Austria. The account begins with both armies recuperating on the banks of the Danube. As they rest, important action was taking place elsewhere: Eugene won a crucial victory over Johann on the anniversary of Marengo, Prince Poniatowski’s Poles outflanked another Austrian archduke along the Vistula, and Marmont drove an Austrian force out of Dalmatia to join Napoleon at Vienna. These campaigns set the stage for the titanic Battle of Wagram. Second only in scale to the slaughter at Leipzig in 1813, Wagram saw more than 320,000 men and 900 guns locked in two days of fury that ended with an Austrian retreat. The defeat, however, was not complete: Napoleon had to force another engagement before Charles would accept a ceasefire. The battle of Znaim, its true importance often not acknowledged, brought an extended armistice that ended with a peace treaty signed in Vienna. Gill uses an impressive array of sources in an engaging narrative covering both the politics of emperors and the privations and hardship common soldiers suffered in battle. Enriched with unique illustrations, forty maps, and extraordinary order-of-battle detail, this work concludes an unrivalled English-language study of Napoleon’s last victory. “Sheds new light on well-known stages in the battle . . . he has covered more than just an epochal battle in a magnificent book that will satisfy the most avid enthusiasts of Napoleonic era military history.” —Foundation Napoleon

Compendium Improvisation

Fantasieren Nach Historischen Quellen Des 17. Und 18. Jahrhunderts

Author: Markus Schwenkreis

ISBN: 9783796537097


Page: 400

Das Compendium Improvisation erschliesst fur ein breiteres Fachpublikum wichtige Quellentexte zur Improvisationspraxis des 17. und 18. Jahrhunderts fur den Unterricht auf historischen Tasteninstrumenten. Es vereint in sich Impulse der neueren Musiktheorie und der damit verbundenen Wiederentdeckung der neapolitanischen Partimento-Praxis ebenso wie die - in stetiger Weiterentwicklung befindlichen - methodischen Ideen und Konzepte der Autoren. In den einzelnen Artikeln werden Quellenauszuge, Musikbeispiele, Analysen uberlieferter Kompositionen und praktische Ubungen zu einem lebendigen Bild der barocken ?Fantasierkunst' verknupft. Dabei verfolgt die Sammlung jedoch nicht das Ziel, eine konsequent aufgebaute Improvisationsschule zu formulieren. Vielmehr mochte sie moglichst unterschiedliche Zugange zur stilgebundenen Improvisation eroffnen, deren methodische Ideen an historischen Vorbildern verifiziert und belegt sind. Das Format des Bandes ladt zum praktischen Ausprobieren der zahlreichen Notenbeispiele und prasentierten Methoden ein. Ein Netz von Querverweisen erleichtert nicht nur das Querlesen, sondern lasst das vorliegende Compendium selbst zu einem Abbild jener hochkomplexen, integrativen Vorgange werden, die bei einer gelungenen Phantasie aus dem Kopfe im Gehirn des Spielers unbewusst ablaufen.
