Book excerpt: This is a reissue of the first edition of George Grove's Dictionary of Music and Musicians, which has since evolved to become the largest and most authoritative work of its kind in English. The project grew in the making: the title page of Volume 1 (1879) refers to 'two volumes', but by the time Volume 4 appeared in 1889 there was also a 300-page appendix and a separate index volume. The dictionary was an international undertaking, with contributors from Paris, Leipzig, Berlin, Vienna and Boston alongside those based in Britain. It was 'intended to supply a great and long acknowledged want' arising from the increased interest in all aspects of music, which was 'rapidly becoming an essential branch of education', and to cater for the professional while being accessible to the amateur. It is a fascinating document of musical tastes and values in the late Victorian period.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This engaging book explores the dynamic relationship between evolutionary science and musical culture in Victorian Britain, drawing upon a wealth of popular scientific and musical literature to contextualize evolutionary theories of the Darwinian and non-Darwinian revolutions. Bennett Zon uses musical culture to question the hegemonic role ascribed to Darwin by later thinkers, and interrogates the conceptual premise of modern debates in evolutionary musicology. Structured around the Great Chain of Being, chapters are organized by discipline in successively ascending order according to their object of study, from zoology and the study of animal music to theology and the music of God. Evolution and Victorian Musical Culture takes a non-Darwinian approach to the interpretation of Victorian scientific and musical interrelationships, debunking the idea that the arts had little influence on contemporary scientific ideas and, by probing the origins of musical interdisciplinarity, the volume shows how music helped ideas about evolution to evolve.

D. 1450-1880), Vol. 2 of 3: By Eminent Writers, English and Foreign, With Illustrations and Woodcuts Sme people use it merely to define any slight piece which consists mainly of a simple melody simply accompanied, in which sense it would be perfectly adapted to many of Mendelssohn's Lieder ohne Worte, and innumerable other pieces of that class of small compositions for the pianoforte by various authors, as well as to songs. On the other hand, some writers have eu deavoured to indicate by the term a form of construction, in' the same sense as they would speak of the ferms of the. Movements of Sonatas. For the diffusion of this view Herr Bernhard Marx appears to be responsible, .and'his definition will be best given in his own terms. In the fourth section of' the fifth division of his 'allgemeine Musiklehre' he writes as follows 'under this name of Lied-form we group all such pieces of music as have one single-main idea, which is presented either in one developed section, or as a period (with first and second' phrase), or even as' a period' divided into first and second similar parts, or' into first, second, and third parts (in which case the last is generally a repetition of the first). It is possible in Lied - form to have even'two suchcomplete forms aggregated into one piece; but then they occur without close connection or interweaving. With one an other, perhaps witli' the two' parts twice or three times repeated in which case the second group will be called a Trio, and the, third the second 'h'io, and be treated as a second independent piece. For the sake of contrast, such Trios will often be in another key, or in other key relation ship, such as minor corresponding to major, and major to minor, of the same key, etc., return being afterwards made to the first portion and the original key to make the piece complete. 'in this Liedaform are cast most of 'the Lieder which=are intended to besung, dances, .marches, many etudes, introductions, ' etc. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
