Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Attracting over fifteen million visitors, the 1925 Paris Expo had an ambitious goal to create a new modernist style which would reflect the great scientific, industrial, and technological advances that produced a new spirit known as "modern." In April in Paris, author Irena R. Makaryk explores the theatre arts' vital cultural and political impact at this celebrated international exhibition. Drawing extensively from unexplored archival documents from France, Austria, and North America, April in Paris is the first major study to focus on theatre arts at the 1925 Paris Expo and the audacious Soviet contributions to this fair. Turning a spotlight on the uses and representations of theatricalized spaces, Makaryk analyses their political challenge at a time when relations between the West and the USSR were rife with tension. Copiously illustrated with beautiful colour and black and white illustrations, this book elucidates the complex role of the international fair as a catalyst for spirited cultural debate and for aesthetic change.

Book excerpt: A transatlantic novel for fans of A.S. Byatt and Don DeLillo. Shaun is an American professor enjoying his sabbatical—and his substantial inheritance—in Paris, until one night when he is startled awake by a nightmare. His attempts to decipher the dream lead him to a New York murder trial that occurred in 1916 in the Bronx. Upon discovering that the murder took place in the basement of his father's childhood apartment building and having no recollection of being told about it in his boyhood, Shaun explores the possibility of a repressed memory. His amateur, but psychologically astute, investigation coincides with the beginning of his first serious romance since the death of his wife five years earlier. By the time he uncovers the shocking truth behind the case, he has traveled to Spain, New York, Sweden, and back to France. While deciphering a murder that hits close to home, John J. Healey offers an intimate tale of love, family, and the complexities of the human heart.

Book The American Popular Ballad of the Golden Era  1924 1950

Download or read book The American Popular Ballad of the Golden Era 1924 1950 written by Allen Forte and published by Princeton University Press. This book was released on 1995 with total page 384 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In this pathbreaking book, Allen Forte uses modern analytical procedures to explore the large repertoire of beautiful love songs written during the heyday of American musical theater, the Big Bands, and Tin Pan Alley. Covering the work of such songwriters as Jerome Kern, Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, George Gershwin, Richard Rodgers, and Harold Arlen, he seeks to illuminate this extraordinary music indigenous to America by revealing its deeper organizational characteristics. In so doing, he aims to establish it as a unique corpus of music that deserves more intensive study and appreciation by scholars and connoisseurs in the broader fields of American popular music and jazz. Expressing much of the traditional tonality associated with European music in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, the love songs of the Golden Age are shown to draw on a rich variety of elements--popular harmony, idiomatic lyric-writing, and Afro-American dance rhythms. His analyses of such songs as "Embraceable You" or "Yesterdays" in particular exemplify his ability to convey the sublime, unpretentious simplicity of this great music.

Download or read book Let s Travel written by LeRoy Anderson and published by Page Publishing Inc. This book was released on 2020-11-09 with total page 184 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This unusual work is, in some respects, a sequel to the author’s first work, Joie de Vivre, published by Page Publishing in 2016 and was designed to chronicle the author and his dear wife Claire’s considerable European travels. Thus, the spectacular photos—in full color—are representative of their visits to Scandinavia, France, Germany, Italy, and Great Britain. Special attention is given to Norway, the home of Claire Andersons forbears; thus the reader will be treated to local scenes throughout the country with special attention given to coastal Norway aboard the cruise ship MS Polarlys on the cruise called Hurtigruten, billed as “The World’s Most Beautiful Sea Voyage.” Ever the historical bent traveler, Anderson recounts much German history during twin two-week voyages up the Rhine River. On one occasion, they docked overnight in Boppard, and conducted their own walking tour of the city. They were drawn to the glorious twelfth-century St. Severus Cathedral and, fortuitously, “bumped into” Herr Jacobs, the Cathedral organist. He led LeRoy and Claire up to the organ loft and treated them to a performance of Bach’s “Prelude and Fugue in E minor.” The Andersons’ tour to Italy included a nice visit in the glorious Pantheon with its noted oculus and then in Navona Square, walking ’round Bernini’s great “Four Rivers” fountain and concluding with glorious and relaxing alfresco dinners at Tre Scalini restaurant.

Book Taking a Chance on Love

Download or read book Taking a Chance on Love written by George Harwood Phillips and published by University of Oklahoma Press. This book was released on 2019-09-19 with total page 264 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: When his friend George Gershwin persuaded Vladimir Dukelsky to change his name to Vernon Duke, what the music world already knew became apparent to the public at large—the man had two musical personas—one as a composer, the other as a tunesmith. One wrote highbrow music, the other lowbrow. Yet the two sides complemented each other. Neither could function without the other. Born and classically trained in imperial Russia, Vladimir Dukelsky (1903–1969) fled the Bolshevik Revolution with his family, discovered American popular music in cosmopolitan Constantinople, and pursued his budding interest to New York before his passion for classical music drew him to Paris, where the impresario Serge Diaghilev hired him to compose a ballet for the Ballets Russes. Taking a Chance on Love immerses us in Duke’s dizzying globe-hopping and genre-swapping, as financial concerns and musical passions drive him from composing symphonies to writing songs, from brilliant successes to Broadway flops, and from performing with classical performers to writing books and articles. Throughout, as he crisscrosses the landscape of American music, collaborating with lyricists such as Howard Dietz, Ira Gershwin, and Sammy Cohn, the incomparable Vernon Duke emerges clearly from these pages: sometimes charming, sometimes infuriating, always entertaining. Although Vernon Duke has entered the canon of American standards with such songs as “Taking a Chance on Love,” “I Can’t Get Started,” and “April in Paris,” little is known about the composer with two personas. Taking a Chance on Love brings the intriguing double life of Dukelsky/Duke back into the spotlight, restoring a chapter to the history of the Great American Songbook and to the story of twentieth-century music.
