This book was released on 2016-04-15 with total page 248 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This is the first full-length study of British women's instrumental chamber music in the early twentieth century. Laura Seddon argues that the Cobbett competitions, instigated by Walter Willson Cobbett in 1905, and the formation of the Society of Women Musicians in 1911 contributed to the explosion of instrumental music written by women in this period and highlighted women's place in British musical society in the years leading up to and during the First World War. Seddon investigates the relationship between Cobbett, the Society of Women Musicians and women composers themselves. The book’s six case studies - of Adela Maddison (1866-1929), Ethel Smyth (1858-1944), Morfydd Owen (1891-1918), Ethel Barns (1880-1948), Alice Verne-Bredt (1868-1958) and Susan Spain-Dunk (1880-1962) - offer valuable insight into the women’s musical education and compositional careers. Seddon’s discussion of their chamber works for differing instrumental combinations includes an exploration of formal procedures, an issue much discussed by contemporary sources. The individual composers' reactions to the debate instigated by the Society of Women Musicians, on the future of women's music, is considered in relation to their lives, careers and the chamber music itself. As the composers in this study were not a cohesive group, creatively or ideologically, the book draws on primary sources, as well as the writings of contemporary commentators, to assess the legacy of the chamber works produced.

Download Women Composers PDF Format Full Free by Martha Furman Schleifer and published by Macmillan Reference USA. This book was released on 1998 with total page 448 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The composers included in volume 3 of "Women Composers: Music through the Ages" were born between 1700 and 1799. Included here with examples of their keyboard music, some of the composers are also represented in volumes 4 and 5, which contain vocal, choral, chamber, orchestral, and operatic music. Unlike most of the composers in volumes 1 and 2, who belonged to religious orders or noble families, the women born in the 18th century were of secular background and were more visible as musicians. Musical families produced generations of composers, both men and women. The three volumes in this anthology devoted to the 18th century include mothers, daughters, wives, and sisters-in-law of other composers and musicians. Many of these women performed and composed in a wide variety of forms and genres, including sonatas, lessons, sets of variations, fantasias, and short and descriptive pieces. Volume 3 includes forty-three works by twenty-two composers from nine countries: England, France, Italy, Germany, Poland, Austria, the Netherlands, Bohemia, and Scotland. Maria Teresa Agnesi, a performer and composer, wrote instrumental and operatic music, while the soprano Elisabetta de Gambarini is represented by one of her charming harpsichord sonatas. Anna Bon, a singer, harpsichordist, and composer, left only three collections of works: a set of sonatas for flute and continuo, a set of divertimenti for two flutes and continuo, and a set of six sonatas for harpsichord. The singer-pianist-composer Juliane Reichardt, a member of an illustrious Czech-German musical family, wrote two piano sonatas and many songs. The songs of her daughter, Louise, another singer-composer, appear in volume 4. MadameKrumpholtz, a celebrated harpist and composer, was the mother of Fanny Krumpholtz Pittar, also a harpist. Krumpholtz's connection to the Dussek family of women composers was through Jan Dussek, with whom she frequently performed. He was the husband of composer Sophia Dussek (later Moralt) and the father of composers Veronika Cianchettini and Olivia Dussek Bulkley. Josepha Barbara von Auernhammer was one of Mozart's favorite pupils; he dedicated several works to her. Mozart, Haydn, and Salieri wrote concertos for the blind composer Maria Theresia von Paradis, a talented pianist and singer, whose "Fantasia for Piano" is included here. This volume contains music by six English performer-composers. Anne Valentine, the composer of the rondo "Monny Musk," was also a music merchant. Cecilia Maria Barthelemon, the daughter of Maria Barthelemon (see volume 4), wrote the descriptive piece "The Capture of the Cape of Good Hope for the Piano Forte or Harpsichord, Concluding With a Song & Chorus." Jane Mary Guest Miles, whose music is in both volumes 3 and 5, wrote expressive and virtuosic music. Elizabeth Weichsell Billington composed music in her youth, before pursuing a long and highly successful performing career. Mlle Benaut, whose first name remains unknown, wrote her few extant compositions before she was in her teens. The Dutch pianist and composer Gertrude van den Bergh studied piano with Ferdinand Ries. She published her first piano composition at age nine and continued to compose, perform, and conduct throughout her lifetime. She supported herself by teaching members of the Dutch royal family. Helene Riese Liebmann, another piano pupil of Ferdinand Ries, was recognized as a virtuosoat the age of ten. Her compositions for voice, piano, and chamber groups combine elements of Classical and early Romantic styles. Maria Szymanowska, whose music combines 18th-century genres with 19th-century language and texture, was one of the first women to achieve economic independence through teaching, public performance, and publication. Her marriage to a wealthy landowner dissolved because of his reluctance to allow her to pursue a professional musical career. She associated with a diverse group of intellectuals, writers, and composers in Warsaw and St. Petersburg, where she held a position as court pianist. All music titles and composer names appear on the music in this volume as they did in the original publication. We thank Eve R. Meyer for her editorial assistance in the preparation of volumes 3, 4, and 5. Special thanks to Sam Dennison for his expertise as indexer of this series.

Book excerpt: "This reference classic has approximately doubled in size since its last publication 20 years ago, and the expansion involves more than the thorough revision and addition of articles about music of the past. More articles about 20th-century composers and composer-performers have been added, as well as topical articles about the gender-related, multicultural, and interdisciplinary ways that music is now being studied. Add to these changes that New Grove is also available online, making it a source that would have made its many-faceted creator Sir George Grove proud"--Outstanding reference sources, American Libraries, May 2002.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Throughout history women have been composing music, but until recently their achievements went largely unrecognized. Those few in earlier times who gained some renown were often as not the sisters, daughters, wives, or muses of well-known men - the surnames of Fanny Mendelssohn and Clara Schumann speak for themselves. Now, with a significant increase in the number of women composers and a burgeoning interest in their work, the need for authoritative information about these musicians is greater than ever. The Norton/ Grove Dictionary of Women Composers, produced by an international corps of experts, is the indispensable first choice of scholars, teachers, musicians, librarians, and all music lovers interested in women's creative contributions to Western art music.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: As a distinct genre and subject, twentieth-century violin and viola duos have not been examined in depth or detail. Existing catalogues which list works for this ensemble are imcomplete and historical information concerning the genre as a whole is sparse. Only a few brief articles concerning twentieth-century violin and viola duos and one analysis of a work have been publised. The genre is even considered by many to be of non-standard instrumentation. Yet, the combination of violin and viola is unquestionably viable and has been chosen as a means of expression by at least 360 composers during this century alone. Over 400 modern works for the combination have been written and scores and/or parts for approximately 200 of these duos are readily available. In addition, recordings of 26 compositions have been released commercially. This dissertation addresses the under-researched topic of twentieth-century violin and viola duos. First it is show that the topic has not been adequately studied and possible reasons for this are given. Second, the musical function of duos is discussed and a historical groundwork is established which traces duo literature from the seventeenth century. An overview of the modern violin and viola duos follows. Next, critical reviews of 202 works and a discograpy of recorded duos, both commercial and non-commercial, precede a list of titles, composers, publishers and referential listings of over 400 violin and viola duos. Finally, analyses of seven of the more prominent twentieth-century violin and viola duos are presented.
