Item Description: WW Norton Co, United States, 1965. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Rev ed.. 195 x 127 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. The most celebrated book on counterpoint is Fux s great theoretical work ?Gradus ad Parnassum.? Since its appearance in 1725, it has been used by and has directly influenced the work of many of the greatest composers. J.S. Bach held it in high esteem, Leopold Mozart trained his famous son from its pages, Haydn worked out every lesson with meticulous care, and Beethoven condensed it into an abstract for ready reference. An impressive list of nineteenth-century composers subscribed to its second edition, and in more recent times Paul Hindemith said, Perhaps the craft of composition would really have fallen into decline if Fux s ?Gradus? had not set up a standard. Originally written in Latin, ?Steps to Parnassus? was translated into the principal European languages, but the only English version was a free paraphrase published in 1886. The present translation by Alfred Mann is therefore the first faithful rendering in English from the original Latin and presents the essence of Fux s teachings. For its distinction as a classic and its undiminished usefulness for the modern student it is a privilege to offer this fine translation in the Norton Library.

Item Description: Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from Fugue There is probably no branch of musical composition in which theory is more widely, one might almost say hopelessly, at variance with practice than in that which forms the subject of the present volume. In Harmony, we are frequently meeting with cases in which the rules of the old text-books need much modification; but with regard to Fugue there are few indeed of the old precepts which are not continually, not to say systematically violated by the greatest masters. The reason for this is no doubt that the standard authorities on the subject, Fux and Marpurg, treated it from the point of view of the seventeenth century, and that most of their successors, such as Cherubini and Albrechtsberger (to name two of the most illustrious), have in the main adopted their rules, taking little or no account of the reformation, amounting almost to a reconstruction, of the fugue at the hands of J.S. Bach. Somewhat more liberality of tone will be found in the treatises of Andre, Richter, and Lobe; but not one of these, excepting Lobe, has taken Bach s work as the starting point for his investigations. Lobe, on the other hand, is too revolutionary; he even abolishes the names subject and answer, using instead the terms first imitation, second imitation, c. When we find a distinguished theorist like Andre saying that Bach is not a good model because he allows himself too many exceptions, and are informed that one of the principal German teachers of counterpoint is in the habit of telling his pupils that there is not a single correctly written fugue among Bach s Forty-Eight, surely it is high time that an earnest protest were entered against a system of teaching which places in a kind of Index Expurgatorius the works of the greatest fugue writer that the world has ever seen.

Item Description: Kassel , Basel : Bärenreiter-Verlag, 1952. Broschiert. Book Condition: Sehr gut. 35 S. Papierbedingt leicht gebräunt. - Die Hauptvoraussetzung für wissenschaftliche Denkmälerausgaben bildet das Zustandekommen eines "historischen Bewußtseins". Der Musik blieb dieses lange fremd, sie lebte durch viele Jahrhunderte fast ausschließlich der jeweils eigenen Gegenwart. Daß sich im 13. Jahrhundert der englische Anonymus IV rückblickend um das Wachsen und Wandeln der Ars aatiqua von Paris kümmerte, war seltene Ausnahme. Die Rückschau des Tinctoris um 1475 reichte knapp bis zu Dufays Anfängen, die des Glarean 1547 bis zu Okeghem, also beidemal etwa ein halbes Jhdt. zurück, und es ist ein Unicum, wenn eine Basler Kotter-Hs. zu dem Liedsatz "Betrübt ist mir mein Herz" als Autorenvermerk echt humanistenhaft setzt: "Nicolaus. musicae jamdudum erigescentis primus ivtstaurator", also wohl N. Kronsdorfer als "der sich erst kürzlich aufrichtenden Tonkunst erster Erneuerer". Nachdem Hermann Finck 1558 durch frühen Unfalltod den Plan, eine Musikgeschichte abzufassen, nicht mehr hatte verwirklichen können, wurde es 1675, bis der Lüneburger in Stettin J. G. Ebeling seine putzig ungeschlachten Ardtaeo-logiae Orphicae schrieb, und ungefähr gleichzeitig verfaßte Pierre Bourdelot seine überraschend weitschauende Histoire de la musique, die erst dreißig Jahre nach seinem 1685 erfolgten Tode erschien. - 1690 setzte Wolfgang Caspar Printz in der "Historischen Beschreibung der edlen Sing- und Klingkunst" im wesentlichen den Katalog einer Musikbibliothek zu Annalen um - immerhin zeigt er schon mehr Blick für das Kunst werden, als 1695 Andreas Bontempi, der in seiner Historia musica nur die zwei Zustände der vollentwickelten musikalischen Antike und des Barock kontrastiert. Zeitloses Überdauern gestand man damals eigentlich nur dem mythisch großen Palestrina zu, dessen Stile antico ebenso dem alten Heinrich Schütz wie lebenslang dem Joh. Jos. Fux als Dauermuster gegolten hat. Sonst aber behielt nur der Lebende recht; starb ein Meister wie Ducis oder Lechner, so mußten sich die Erben beeilen, seinen Notennachlaß an musikfreudige Höfe zu verkaufen, solange er noch für aktuell gelten konnte, oder man bewahrte derlei, wie die Breslauer Stadtbibliothek, bestenfalls "wegen des sonderlichen Fleißes des Heimgegangenen", also als Kuriosität, auf.

Item Description: Wien: Böhlau 2009., 2009. 784 S., zahlr. s/w- u. farb. Abb. Lit.verz. Ln.mS. *neuwertig* Humanismus, Gegenreformation und Aufklärung prägten das geistige - auch das geisteswissenschaftliche - Leben in Graz, ehe dieses in der Zeit von ca. 1860 bis 1918 zu voller Entfaltung gelangte. Wie schon zur Zeit der Gegenreformation war es danach des öfteren die Kunst, die den Statusverlust der Wissenschaften in gewissem Umfang kompensierte. Einige klingende, mit Graz verbundene Namen seien exemplarisch erwähnt: von den Künstlern und Kunstinterpreten Fischer von Erlach, Fux, Brockmann, Nestroy, Rosegger, Girardi, Geistinger, Nabl, Thöny, Böhm, Janowitz, Brendel, Morath, Kolleritsch, Handke, Domenig, G. F. Haas, O. Neuwirth, schließlich C. Mayer, „der" Drehbuchautor der Stummfilmzeit; von den Geisteswissenschaftlern wiederum der frühe „Ethnograph" S. v. Herberstein, Kindermann, Hammer-Purgstall, Weinhold, J. Schmidt, F. v. Hausegger, Riehl, Meinong, Schönbach, Meringer, Schuchardt, Murko, Luick, Krones, Srbik, Ivánka, Koschatzky, Feuchtmüller, Lind, Schulz-Buschhaus und Topitsch. Der Sammelband, der auch grundlegende Überlegungen zur heutigen Lage der Geisteswissenschaften enthält, ist mit reichem Bildmaterial und einer umfangreichen Bibliographie versehen.
