Menahem Pressler and the Beaux Arts Trio German born pianist Menahem Pressler (1923) was forced to flee Nazi terror to Israel. He quickly attained international fame in 1946 by winning the Debussy Competition in San Francisco and performing his debut with Eugene Ormandy and The Philadelphia Orchestra. Ultimately emigrating to the United States, Pressler teaches at the Jacobs School of Music of Indiana University where he holds an endowed chair as Distinguished Professor. As founding member of the Beaux Arts Trio, he alone survived the ensemble's changes in membership during its unprecedented 53 year history. 'Setting the standard' for piano trio performance, the Beaux Arts Trio elevated the ensemble type to a par with the string quartet in over seven thousand performances, hundreds of award winning recordings and extensive broadcasts. Famed for his musicality and equally admired for his way with words, communicator Menahem Pressler is captured here, an inspiration to colleagues, students and his international public. In Always Something New to Discover, Pressler's biography, esthetics, pianism and dedication to music are gathered in texts enriched with oral history as generously shared by Pressler and his intimates. 'I am as hungry now making my music as when I was young ' With as yet no retirement in sight, Menahem Pressler continues his musical journey with an undiminished schedule and a full studio of international students, all in blissful service of the music he loves. Originally from Boston, Cynthia Wilson (1953) was educated at Concord Academy in Massachusetts and Sarah Lawrence College in New York before following her passion for early music to Amsterdam. After a decade of concertizing she held a number of management positions in the Dutch music world. In 2006, she founded wwclassics to pursue a wider range of artistic activities."

Debussy stratege? C'est le pari que fait cette etude stylistique, centree sur la duplication, procede bien specifique a Debussy, qui consiste a doubler presque systematiquement chaque entite musicale. Seulement voila: la duplication, pour evidente qu'elle semble de prime abord, ne se retrouve presque jamais dans sa forme elementaire sous la plume inventive de ce maitre de l'incertain et de l'impair. Debussy a entrevu le tribut qu'une duplication uniforme et systematique imposerait a son discours musical... Aussi, cette etude suscite chez l'analyste toutes sortes de questions: quelles sont les methodes qu'emploie Debussy afin de rendre imprevisible le mouvement de ses troupes? Comment l'identique est-il fusionne au contraste, et le contraste a l'identique, afin que ces deux versants de l'oeuvre soient organiquement embrasses? Quelle place occupe la duplication dans la question plus vaste de la repetition et de la transformation? Diverses strategies de contournement de la cohorte romaine seront examinees, des plus simples, comme les tactiques du canardage ou de l'attaque des reservistes, aux plus complexes: la progression en tapinois, les feux d'alerte ou le combat psychologique.

Unaccountably, Percy Grainger has remained on the margins of both American music history and twentieth-century modernism. This volume reveals the well-known composer of popular gems to be a self-described ‘hyper-modernist’ who composed works of uncompromising dissonance, challenged the conventions of folk song collection and adaptation, re-visioned the modern orchestra, experimented with ‘ego-less’ composition and designed electronic machines intended to supersede human application. Grainger was far from being a self-sufficient maverick working in isolation. Through contact with innovators such as Ferrucio Busoni, Léon Theremin and Henry Cowell; promotion of the music of modern French and Spanish schools; appreciation of vernacular, jazz and folk musics; as well as with the study and transcription of non-Western music; he contested received ideas and proposed many radical new approaches. By reappraising Grainger’s social and historical connectedness and exploring the variety of aspects of modernity seen in his activities in the British, American and Australian contexts, the authors create a profile of a composer, propagandist and visionary whose modernist aesthetic paralleled that of the most advanced composers of his day, and, in some cases, anticipated their practical experiments.

"In a study that is both scholarly and highly entertaining, Matthew Brown explores pop culture's appropriations of Debussy's music in everything from '30s swing tunes, '40s movie scores, '50s lounge/exotica, '70s rock and animation, '80s action films, and Muzak. The book, however, is far more than a compendium of fascinating borrowings. The author uses these musical transfers to tackle some of the most fundamental aesthetic issues relevant to the music of all composers, not just Debussy." David Grayson -- Book jacket.

The early music of Claude Debussy was influenced by the work of Wagner, for whom he had great admiration. However, soon Debussy's music became more experimental and individualistic, as is clear in his first mature work Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun. Debussy quickly moved away from traditional techniques and produced the pictures in sound that led his work to be described as "musical Impressionism." This new biography--the first in English in 30 years--offers new insights into the life of this enigmatic composer, revealing a figure more seminal and revolutionary than previously thought.

Adaptive Strategies for Small-Handed Pianists brings together information from biomechanics, ergonomics, physics, anatomy, medicine, and piano pedagogy to focus on the subject of small-handedness. The first comprehensive study of its kind, the book opens with an overview of historical, anatomical, and pedagogical perspectives and redresses long-held biases concerning those who struggle at the piano because of issues with hand size. A discussion of work efficiency, the human anatomy, and the constraints of physics serves as the theoretical basis for a focused analysis of healthy movement and piano technique as they relate to small-handedness. Separate chapters deal with specific alternative approaches: redistribution, refingering, strategies to maximize reach and power, and musical solutions for technical problems. Richly illustrated with hundreds of examples from a wide range of piano repertoire, the book is an incomparable resource for piano teachers and students, written in language that is accessible to a broad audience. It balances scholastic rigor with practical experience in the field to demonstrate that the unique physical and musical needs of the small-handed can be addressed in sensitive and appropriate ways.
