Review: As a reference book, this is not a review about which one can write immediately. Last year I bought this edition as a present for my husband's significant birthday as I did the 1994 edition. We have enjoyed it but mostly as a pair since omissions and additions occur over time. For example my husband enjoys the music of Jan Dismas Zelenka who is no longer referenced in the new edition though other newer composers and artists (too many to mention here), are. Roll on the next edition.

Review: There's a huge amount of solid information here, and it's a terrible temptation to simply spend hours browsing, hopping from topic to topic - and it is much more civilised than the Internet. BUT it is patchy - very poor on jazz, folk music, and pop, for example. If you are going to cover topics, do them thoroughly. Deliberately leaving them out would be fine if the editors had announced specifically that these subjects would be excluded. The production, too, gave me some concerns. I noticed a number of printing mistakes (sorry, can't be specific) that simply would not have slipped-through the OUP's copy editors in the past, and the paper is not very pleasant to feel. These things matter, Oxford, if one is buying a physical book rather than images on a screen.

  • University of California Press Music after the Fall

    Price: £25.00

    Brand: University of California Press

     

    Description: Music after the Fall is the first book to survey contemporary Western art music within the transformed political, cultural, and technological environment of the post-Cold War era. In this book, Tim Rutherford-Johnson considers musical composition against this changed backdrop, placing it in the context of globalization, digitization, and new media. Drawing connections with the other arts, in particular visual art and architecture, he expands the definition of Western art music to include forms of composition, experimental music, sound art, and crossover work from across the spectrum, inside and beyond the concert hall. Each chapter is a critical consideration of a wide range of composers, performers, works, and institutions, and develops a broad and rich picture of the new music ecosystem, from North American string quartets to Lebanese improvisers, from electroacoustic music studios in South America to ruined pianos in the Australian outback. Rutherford-Johnson puts forth a new approach to the study of contemporary music that relies less on taxonomies of style and technique than on the comparison of different responses to common themes of permission, fluidity, excess, and loss.

  • John Murray Press Dr Johnson's Dictionary

    Price: £10.99

    Brand: John Murray Press

     

    Description: By 1700, France and Italy already had dictionaries of their own, and it became a matter of national pride that England should rival them. Dr Johnson rose to the challenge, turning over the garret of his London home to the creation of his Dictionary. He imagined it would take three years. Eight years later it was finally published, full of idiosyncrasies, but complete nevertheless. It would become the most important British cultural monument of the eighteenth century. This is the story of Johnson's attempt to define each and every word. In wonderfully engaging chapters, Hitchings describes Johnson's adventure - his ambition and vision, his moments of despair, the mistakes he made along the way and his ultimate triumph.
