Download Historical Dictionary of Romantic Music PDF Format Full Free by John Michael Cooper and published by Scarecrow Press. This book was released on 2013 with total page 740 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This Historical Dictionary of Romantic Music does not deal with romantic music in the broadest sense, although an amazingly large portion of the music considered here would qualify, but rather music of the Romantic Period which the author terms the long 19th century. This exceptional period generated a plethora of composers whose names are immediately recognizable, and whose music still appeals strongly to us today, including Brahms, Chopin, Mendelssohn, Schumann, and Tchaikovsky, just to mention a few. It flourished mainly in France and what became Germany, but spread to all parts of Europe and the New World, and is now appreciated around the globe. Probably, assuming there were such a thing, a popularity contest would put Romantic music toward the top of the list so a lot of people - and not only students and teachers - will be interested in this book, which like others in the series is built around a core dictionary. In it can be found nearly 1,000 pages of entries on the composers above and scores more as well as musicians, instrument makers, patrons and publishers, and specific works, to say nothing of significant events that shaped the period.The chronology, a century's worth, highlights the major events. The introduction gives us a feel for the times and how they affected music. And the bibliography points toward further reading.

Download Historical Dictionary of British Theatre PDF Format Full Free by Darryll Grantley and published by Scarecrow Press. This book was released on 2013-10-10 with total page 548 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book has over 1,183 entries in the dictionary section, these being mainly on playwrights and plays, but others as well including managers and critics, and also on specific theatres, legislative acts and some technical jargon. Then there are entries on the different genres, from comedy to tragedy and everything in between. Inevitably, the chronology is quite long as it has a long period to cover and the introduction provides the necessary overview. The Historical Dictionary of British Theatre: Early Period concludes with a pretty massive bibliography. That will be of use to particularly assiduous researchers, but this book itself is a good place to start any research since it covers periods that are far less well-known and documented, and ordinary theatre-goers will also find useful information.
