Magnets and miracles. Loneliness and nostalgia in Pink Floyd's lyrics

Following "Dieci brani da ascoltare almeno una volta nella vita" ("10 songs you should listen to before you die") and the books on Tim Burton and Hayao Miyazaki, Jacopo Caneva's latest work carries out a short, but in-depth study on the concepts of loneliness and nostalgia in Pink Floyd's lyrics, from "The Dark Side of the Moon" to "The Wall". The young writer unveils the common ground of apparently different lyrics: the memory of Syd Barrett, the genius and first leader of the group, the "crazy diamond" who gave the band the name of Pink Floyd, delivering it to myth, disappearing in anonymity after troublesome years. The book is a tribute to the legendary English rock-band and a celebration of the recently released "The Endless River", a new album of previously unreleased songs.

George Goodman's Harmonica Cheat Sheet

George Goodman's Harmonica Cheat Sheet is a combination of three great tools to kick-start your harmonica playing.

Included are

- The Blues Harp Chart: provides chords, cross harp key, 12 Bar Blues Progression, and Blues Scale harmonica tabs covering all 12 keys.

- Major Key Degrees of Scale: unveils blow and draw holes for all diatonic chord tones. These are the notes that make up the majority of notes in any melody. It is also very valuable in helping determine song keys and transposing songs to new keys.

- Circle of Fourths and Fifths: makes sense of playing in positions and teaches how to choose the correct key harmonica depending on the key and style of a song.

Bottom line - pick the right key harmonica, then find the notes that make up the melody.

The Popular Image of Rastafarians and Bob Marley

The purpose of this work is not so much a look at Bob Marley--as countless documentaries and biographies have probably done more than enough in covering Marley's life--but an essay that examines the circumstances surrounding Marley's life and his beliefs; including Garveyism and the persecution of Rastas in the West Indies.

This essay is also included as part of a larger collection of essays in "Malcolm X, Bob Marley, and Other Essays."

Garage Band Theory - GBTool 05 Major & Minor Chords: Theory for non music majors. Practical theory for livingroom pickers and working musicians who want ... Tools the Pro's Use to Play by Ear Book 6)

Lots of people can play a handful of chords, and that's enough to play lots and lots of fine music.

When I was teaching, it was always interesting to me how few of those people actually KNOW what a chord is and how they're built.

Lots of folks can play an E chord, no problem, most can not begin to explain what it is.

Chords aren't for everybody, virtually none of the instruments in an orchestra or marching band use them.

But a good understanding of chord structure, where they come from, and why they're called what they're called is useful stuff for everyone.

We start the way most people do, looking at the open chords on a guitar, then move to inversions and triads.

It's excellent ear training, because when you can easily distinguish the difference between major and minor chords, that's the first step to recognizing all the others ... major 6 and minor 6, major, minor and dominant 7th ... etc. When you can recognize a sound for what it is and know where it came from, it's fairly easy to reproduce it.

There are lots of examples and simple songs. There are exercises designed to get your chords flowing smoothly and a quiz at the end so you can measure your progress. (use a separate sheet of paper for your answers)

This is non Academic, practical, useful theory for living-room pickers and working musicians who want to be able to think coherently about music in order to ask questions and understand answers about the music they want to play.

The stuff in GBT is about understanding The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, Cole Porter and Duke Ellington, The Grateful Dead and Vampire Weekend.

It's NOT about analyzing Bach Fugues... but you'll be able to if you want to.

It was written for the 99% of musicians who are NOT music majors by a incorrigible honky-tonk guitar player who plays by ear ... but understands the relevant vocabulary and what's sensible and useful for MOST players.

"Garage Band Theory is a must for any musician." Rodney Crowell

"Don't be put off by this giant book - Duke's got the secrets of the universe in here. Quite simply, this is the most comprehensive book on music theory I've ever seen."

Bill Payne (Little Feat)

"Something for every musician at any level. Especially helpful is the musical notation and tablature for a variety of instruments. This book inspires me to learn and practice more."

Sam Bush

"Garage Band Theory is a veritable encyclopedia of useful tools and tips.This book lifts the lid off the "black box" of music theory and let's the light shine in - and in a fun, practical way.

This is a book which should be left handily lying around the living room, bedside, studio, classroom, (restroom?) - ready to be dipped into at any time for reference purposes or just to improve or refresh one's fluency in the language of music.

A great resource for musicians young and old no matter what your training. For the price of a one-hour lesson, GBT offers a lifetime of learning."

Alasdair Fraser

"Garage Band Theory let me know how little I know... but in a good way. It's a great book!" Sterling C Ball CEO, Ernie Ball Inc.

"This book is written in the people's key." Kostas

"Garage Band Theory offers you everything you need to know to understand, play and make your own music. Because he is both an accomplished musician and teacher, Sharp's Garage Band Theory is an excellent guide for beginners and more advanced players alike." Sam Barry, author, musician

No matter which instrument you want to play, the advice, inspiration and down-to-earth tips in this book will help you get to your goal.

Duke Sharp draws on a lifetime of experience playing, writing, recording and teaching music.

Garage Band Theory demystifies music theory and, in the process, shows how to apply basic music theory to the art of playing by ear and composition.

10 Studies or Caprices for Violin, Opus 9: Violin Solo (Bisel Classics Book 200)

Da Schicksal meinte es nicht immer gut mit ihm, und dennoch leistete Beriot Bedeutendes in mehreren Bereichen.

Sind heute seine Werke vornehmlich in der Padagogik in Verwendung, wo sie als ideale Vorbereitung fur "grossere" romantische Literatur fur Violine gerne zur Hand genommen werden, so sollte man sich vor Augen halten, dass Beriot mit diesen "nicht ganz so kleinen" Konzertetuden und anderen selbst komponierten Stucken das Publikum auf seinen Tourneen durch ganz Europa zu begeistern wusste.

Die Originalitat der Komposition kann gewiss Lust darauf machen, die "Studi Capricci" auch im Konzertsaal zu Gehor zu bringen.

La Marseillaise, Opus 330: Gitarre Solo (Bisel Classics Book 219)

When Carulli at the age of 62 created a monument to the Marseillaise by modeling the popular theme into four variations in his Op. 330, as a performing concert guitarist he was far from the brilliant touch he had been known for at the pinnacle of his career. Yet through its realization and content the work tells about the lifelong experience of an exceptional musician, who as a self taught performer and composer had become a celebrated virtuoso playing an instrument, that was in these days making its debut as a "soloist" in the concert halls - a development that Carulli had a significant influence in. Not only, but also because of the popularity of the theme the present work lends itself as an ideal complement to any classical concert performance.

-----------------------

Als Carulli im Alter von 62 Jahren mit seinem Op. 330 der Marseillaise ein Monument setzte, indem er sie als Thema mit vier Variationen verarbeitete, stand er als einst brillanter Konzertgitarrist nicht mehr auf der Hohe seines Konnens. Dennoch offenbart sich in Ausfuhrung und Gehalt des Werkes die lebenslange Erfahrung jenes Ausnahmemusikers, der als Autodidakt zum gefeierten Virtuosen auf jenem Instrument wurde, das in jener Zeit sein Debut als "Solistin" in den Konzertsalen feierte - eine Entwicklung, an der Carulli massgeblich beteiligt war. Das vorliegende Werk stellt nicht zuletzt aufgrund der Popularitat des Themas die ideale Erganzung fur ein klassisches Konzertprogrammdar.

Klaviersonate Nr. 1 / Piano Sonata No. 1: Piano Solo (Bisel Classics Book 221)

In his ''Sonata No.1 in F-major'' with the movements Moderato, Adagio and Allegretto Hoffmeister created a work for piano solo that can be classified as high quality light music of the First Viennese School. Despite its high playability, the diction of the piece is never at risk of becoming trite, and it gradually reveals an abundance of pleasant phrases, that nevertheless offer a technical challenge for intermediate students. The composition lends itself ideally as a complement to intermediate level teaching, just as well as for home use or as a sight reading study. The music adds immensely to the intermediate level repertoire of the era we are so abundantly familiar with.

-----

Mit seiner ''Sonate Nr.1 in F-Dur" mit den Satzbezeichnungen Moderato , Adagio und Allegretto schuf Hoffmeister ein Werk fur Klavier Solo, das als gehobene Unterhaltungsmusik der Wiener Klassik einzustufen ist. Trotz der leichten Spielbarkeit wirkt der Stil niemals banal, und offenbart eine Fulle an gefalligen Passagen, die dennoch auch fur massig fortgeschrittene Studenten einige technische Herausforderungen bergen. Das Werk eignet sich wunderbar als Material fur den Unterricht der Mittelstufe, aber auch fur den hauslichen Gebrauch oder als Prima Vista Studie. Es bietet die ideale Erganzung fur die ohnehin sattsam bekannte mittelschwere Studienliteratur aus der Ara.

23. Klaviersonate in G-Dur, Opus 47, Nr. 2: Piano Solo (Bisel Classics Book 203)

With the two Sonatas Op. 47 Dussek today presents himself as a composer who already in 1801 produced music that was outrageously romantic, without missing the classical feeling for form. In the ''Sonata No.1 in D-major'', Mozart experts find another work that after the Variations KV 573 picks up the thematic material of the Menuetto by Jean-Pierre Duport, molding it into surprising shifts of harmony. All in all the advanced pianist is guaranteed to find two compositions that demand a crisp and brilliant touch, but nevertheless reward with a sophisticated performance experience.

---------------------

Mit den beiden Sonaten Op. 47 prasentiert sich uns Dussek heute als Komponist, der fur das Jahr 1801 unerhort romantische Musik schrieb, die dennoch nicht das klassischen Gefuhl fur Form entbehrte. Mit der ''Sonate Nr.1 in D-Dur'' finden Mozart- Kenner eine weitere Musikschopfung, die nach den Variationen KV 573 das thematische Material des Menuetts von Jean Pierre Duport aufgreift und auf harmonisch uberraschende Weise verarbeitet. Alles in Allem zwei Kompositionen, die vom Interpreten leichte Fingerfertigkeit und brillanten Anschlag verlangen, dafur aber auch mit niveauvoller Spielfreude belohnen

Klaviersonate in G-Dur: Piano Solo (Bisel Classics Book 212)

The Sonata in G Major was composed in one single movement and displays Liste's fondness for experiments in form. The composition is transparent and light in style, yet does not lack suspense due to frequent use of contrasts. The expressive use of dynamic contrasts throws light onto the emotional part of the composer's personality, who found his second home in Zurich. The work was issued in 1804 as part of the series 'Repertoire des Clavicinistes' by the editor Hans Georg Nageli, who was Liste's patron in that particular period. Not only does it represent a special piece of Swiss music history, but invites rediscovery of its unique composer.

------------------

Besonderen Mut zum Experiment bewiess Liste in seiner Klaviersonate in G-Dur, indem er sie in einem einzigen Satz verfasste. Die Komposition ist durchwegs schlank und transparent, und entbehrt dennoch aufgrund der vielen Kontraste nicht der Spannung. Das expressive Spiel mit dynamischen Kontrasten zeigt die emotionale Personlichkeit des heute viel zu wenig beachteten Komponisten, der in Zurich seine 2. Heimat fand. Das Werk erschien im Jahre 1804 in der Reihe 'Repertoire des Clavicinistes' des Verlegers und Komponisten Hans Georg Nageli, der Liste in jener Phase forderte. Es stellt nicht nur ein Stuck Schweizer Musikgeschichte dar, sondern ladt dazu ein, diesen eigenstandigen Komponisten wieder neu zu entdecken.

Jerusalem Grande Fantaisie Triomphale, Opus 13: Piano Solo (Bisel Classics Book 220)

In his Fantaisie Op. 13 titled 'Jerusalem' Gottschalk treated several themes from Verdi's eponymous opera, which was immensely popular at the time. The technically demanding concert piece stands in line with the plethora of works that were performed in a similar style in the first half of the 19 century. It tells a story about the art of extemporization at the peak of its development, the art of virtuoso improvisation on any popular melody, which Gottschalk and his contemporaries Liszt and Thalberg mastered to perfection. Not only does the piece represent an attractive technical challenge, it also invites a reevaluation of the existing scheme of values regarding that admirable art, and is bound to enrich any romantically oriented concert performance.

-----------------

Mit seiner Fantaisie Op. 13 'Jerusalem' thematisierte Gottschalk einzelne Szenen der damals sehr popularen gleichnamigen Oper Giuseppe Verdis. Das technisch ausserst anspruchsvolle Konzertstuck reiht sich in die Serie der Werke, die im Zeichen der in der ersten Halfte des 19. Jhdts auf dem Hohepunkt ihrer Entfaltung stehenden Kunst der Extemporisation, des freien Improvisierens uber beliebte Melodien steht - eine Fahigkeit, die Gottschalkmit seinen Zeitgenossen Liszt und Thalberg bis zur Perfektion beherrschte. Das Stuck ist nicht nur eine technisch interessante Herausforderung, es ladt auch zur Neubewertung jener Kunst ein, und stellt somit eine Bereicherung fur jedes romantische Repertoire dar.

2. Klaviersonate / 2nd Piano Sonata: Piano Solo (Bisel Classics Book 222)

In his Sonata No 2 in B flat Major with the movements Allegro, Adagio and Allegro Hoffmeister created a work for piano solo that can be classified as high quality light music of the First Viennese School. Despite its high playability, the diction of the piece is never at risk of becoming trite, and it gradually reveals an abundance of pleasant phrases, that nevertheless offer a technical challenge for intermediate students. The composition lends itself ideally as a complement to intermediate level teaching, just as well as for home use or as a sight reading study. The music adds immensely to the intermediate level repertoire of the era we are so abundantly familiar with.

-------

Mit seiner 'Sonate Nr. 2 in B Dur' mit den Satzen Allegro, Adagio und Allegro schuf Hoffmeister ein Werk fur Klavier Solo, das als gehobene Unterhaltungsmusik der Wiener Klassik einzustufen ist. Trotz der leichten Spielbarkeit wirkt der Stil niemals banal, und offenbart eine Fulle an gefalligen Passagen, die dennoch auch fur massig fortgeschrittene Studenten einige technische Herausforderungen bergen. Das Werk eignet sich wunderbar als Material fur den Unterricht der Mittelstufe, aber auch fur den hauslichen Gebrauch oder als Prima Vista Studie. Es bietet die ideale Erganzung fur die ohnehin sattsam bekannte mittelschwere Studienliteratur aus der Ara.

Klaviersonate Nr. 1 Opus 1 No. 1 / 1st Piano Sonata op. 1 No. 1: Piano Solo (Bisel Classics Book 224)

The 'Sonata No. 1 in F-major' was assigned the opus No.1, and represents the first work of the composer that appeared in print. In the allusion to the aria of Figaro from Mozart's opera 'Le Nozze di Figaro' that Woelfl included in the first movement Allegro of his sonata, he pays his respect to the teacher of his childhood years. Having originated before 1795, the work is an example of the composer's early phase. Woelfl was a virtuoso pianist, who reportedly moved audiences all across Europe to great enthusiasm by virtue of his extraordinary skill to extemporize, improvising on any given theme.

----

Die 'Sonate No.1 in F - Dur' ist Teil des Werks mit der Opuszahl 1, und erschien als erstes Opus des Komponisten im Druck. Mit der Anspielung auf die Arie des Figaro aus der Oper 'Le Nozze di Figaro' im ersten Satz Allegro der Sonate erweist Woelfl dem Lehrer seiner Jugendjahre die Reverenz. Durch seine Entstehungszeit vor 1795 beleuchtet das Werk die interessante Fruhphase des Komponisten, der auch selbst ein ausgesprochen virtuoser Pianist war, und sein Publikum in vielen europaischen Stadten vor allem durch seine aussergewohnliche Fahigkeit des Extemporierens in seinen Bann zu ziehen vermochte.

Tänze für den Apollo-Saal Nr. 2, Opus 28: Piano Solo (Bisel Classics Book 207)

With his Op. 28 Hummel composed another series of dances dedicated to the Apollosaal, the most fascinating amusement hall of Old Vienna, which had been opened up on the 10 of January of the same year. It includes twelve Deutsche Tanze with additional Trios and a large Coda. The second version of the part of Deutscher Tanz No.9 which quotes Hummel's ballet Helena und Paris immensely popular at the time, adds character to the collection. These enjoyable musical miniatures offer an interesting glimpse into the creation history of the classical waltz and the world famous Viennese dance culture. They retain their charm as dance music to the present day.

------------------

Mit seinem Op. 28 schuf Hummel 1808 eine weitere Tanzserie mit Widmung fur den faszinierendsten Vergnugungstempel des alten Wien, den Apollosaal, der erst am 10. Janner des selben Jahres eroffnet worden war. Darin finden sich zwolf Deutsche Tanze mit Trio und eine grosse Coda. Eine Besonderheit ist die "Secondo" Einlage des 9. Deutschen Tanzes, der das damals sehr populare Ballett von Hummel "Helena und Paris" zitiert. Die unterhaltsamen musikalischen Miniaturen sind nicht nur musikgeschichtlich interessant, weil sie einen Blick auf die Entstehung des klassischen Walzers und die weltberuhmte Wiener Tanzkultur erlauben. Sie sind auch heute noch als Tanzmusik salonfahig.

22. Klaviersonate in D-Dur, Opus 47 No. 1: Piano Solo (Bisel Classics Book 202)

With the two Sonatas Op. 47 Dussek today presents himself as a composer who already in 1801 produced music that was outrageously romantic, without missing the classical feeling for form. In the ''Sonata No.1 in D-major'', Mozart experts find another work that after the Variations KV 573 picks up the thematic material of the Menuetto by Jean-Pierre Duport, molding it into surprising shifts of harmony. All in all the advanced pianist is guaranteed to find two compositions that demand a crisp and brilliant touch, but nevertheless reward with a sophisticated performance experience.

-------------------

Mit den beiden Sonaten Op. 47 prasentiert sich uns Dussek heute als Komponist, der fur das Jahr 1801 unerhort romantische Musik schrieb, die dennoch nicht das klassischen Gefuhl fur Form entbehrte. Mit der ''Sonate Nr.1 in D-Dur'' finden Mozart- Kenner eine weitere Musikschopfung, die nach den Variationen KV 573 das thematische Material des Menuetts von Jean Pierre Duport aufgreift und auf harmonisch uberraschende Weise verarbeitet. Alles in Allem zwei Kompositionen, die vom Interpreten leichte Fingerfertigkeit und brillanten Anschlag verlangen, dafur aber auch mit niveauvoller Spielfreude belohnen.

Tänze für den Apollo-Saal Nr. 3, Opus 31: Piano Solo (Bisel Classics Book 208)

With his Op. 31 Hummel composed another series of dances in the year 1809 that he dedicated to the Apollosaal, the most fascinating amusement hall of Old Vienna, and a popular venue for the enlightened nobility just as for the emerging bourgeoisie. The series features six Minuets and six Deutsche Tanze, each followed by a Trio. The German Dance No 6 is especially remarkable because of the mythological quote of the Cyclops and the subsequent entry of the hurdy-gurdy man. These enjoyable musical miniatures offer an interesting glimpse into the creation history of the classical waltz and the world famous Viennese dance culture. They retain their charm as dance music to the present day.

-----------------------

Mit seinem Op. 31 schuf Hummel 1809 eine weitere Tanzserie mit Widmung fur den faszinierendsten Vergnugungstempel des alten Wien, den Apollosaal, der sich beim aufgeklarten Adel und dem aufstrebenden Burgertum gleichermassen grosser Beliebtheit erfreute. Darin finden sich sechs Menuette und sechs Deutsche Tanze, denen jeweils ein Trio nachfolgt. Eine Besonderheit stellt der sechste Deutsche Tanz mit seinem mythologischen Zitat der Zyklopen und das nachfolgende Trio mit dem Auftritt des Leiermanns dar. Die unterhaltsamen musikalischen Miniaturen sind nicht nur musikgeschichtlich interessant, weil sie einen Blick auf die Entstehung des klassischen Walzers und die weltberuhmte Wiener Tanzkultur erlauben. Sie sind auch heute noch als Tanzmusik salonfahig

Tänze für den Apollo-Saal Nr. 4, Opus 39: Piano Solo (Bisel Classics Book 209)

In 1811 with his Op. 39 Hummel composed another series of dances that he dedicated to the Apollosaal, the most fascinating amusement hall of Old Vienna, and a popular venue for the enlightened nobility just as for the emerging bourgeoisie. This series of dances surprises with several special effects. Hummel included a quote from the popular ballad opera ''The Swiss Family'' one vocal part and a large scale ''Coda'' envisioning the eruption of Vesuvius. These enjoyable musical miniatures offer an interesting glimpse into the creation history of the classical waltz and the world famous Viennese dance culture. They retain their charm as dance music to the present day.

Mit seinem Op. 39 widmete Hummel 1811 eine weitere Tanzserie dem Apollosaal, der als der faszinierendste Vergnugungstempel des alten Wien galt, und sich beim aufgeklarten Adel und dem aufstrebenden Burgertum gleichermassen grosser Beliebtheit erfreute. Die vorliegende Tanzserie ist vor allem aufgrund der besonderen Einlagen interessant. Hummel uberraschte mit Zitaten aus dem beliebten Singspiel ''Die Schweizer Familie'' einer Vokaleinlage und einer gross angelegten ''Coda'' uber den Ausbruch des Vesuvs. Die unterhaltsamen musikalischen Miniaturen sind nicht nur musikgeschichtlich interessant, weil sie einen Blick auf die Entstehung des klassischen Walzers und die weltberuhmte Wiener Tanzkultur erlauben. Sie sind auch heute noch als Tanzmusik salonfahig.

Tänze für den Apollo-Saal Nr. 5, Opus 45: Piano Solo (Bisel Classics Book 210)

With his Op. 45 Hummel composed another series of dances in the year 1812 that he dedicated to the Apollosaal, the most fascinating amusement hall of Old Vienna, and a popular venue for the enlightened nobility just as for the emerging bourgeoisie. The composition includes six ''Minuets'' and six ''German Dances'' followed by ''Trios''. The ''Introduction'' in the style of a brisk march and the large style ''Coda'' offer stylistic surprises. These enjoyable musical miniatures offer an interesting glimpse into the creation history of the classical waltz and the world famous Viennese dance culture. They retain their charm as dance music to the present day.
