    I am about to self-publish a book on The book is titled VERDI'S "RIGOLETTO": A SELECT DISCOGRAPHY WITH COMMENTARY. The official publication date is April 26th, but the Kindle version of the book is going up for pre-order within the next couple days. When the Kindle is officially...
  2. Classical Music Discussion
    Hi all, Sorry about the extremely vague title! I really enjoyed reading Images and ideas in modern French piano music : the extra-musical subtext in piano works by Ravel, Debussy, and Messiaen by Siglind Bruhn. This book includes 10-page descriptions of what's going on harmonically...

    OK, you get up to 10 books, 10 movies, and an endless supply of 2 snacks. Of course your desert island has a state of the art entertainment system, every recording of music you ever want or wanted, plenty of fish, tropical fruit, and of course canned spam. Also, the locals are extremely...
  4. Music Theory
    I love a deeper understanding of music, but I don't have a musical background. As a result, I feel like there are the too simplistic intro/appreciation to music books, or the two Piston books I own where I make it about two chapters before I am over my head. Is there a happy medium? Something...
  5. Music Theory
    Hi everyone, Not sure this is the best place to post my subject but this is about music theory. First of all, I'm looking for some kind of rythms dictionnary(ies). Especialy concerning world music. I don't know if such book(s) exist but i'm looking for something that would include and...
  6. Recorded Music and Publications
    I am not sure this will interest anyone here but I tried another web site that talks a lot of music and got no response. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Is there anyone here who collects old music publications? I have a song book that is just five years short of being 100 years old...
  7. Today's Composers
    Could you please recommend me a book from which I can learn something more advanced about orchestration? I'm grown on Rimsky-Korsakov/Strauss' one, although I've heard the great books are by Piston and Adler? Also some more cinematic would be appreciated! Thanks
  8. Opera
    I would be interested in knowing which books you think really stand out and are essentila reading for the keen fan. I'm not thinking about Kobbe's guide which is probably a given but maybe someone should sugggest that? But I would like to know more about why you are recommending a volume, so...
  9. Off Topic Pub
    I think it would be interesting to know what your favorite books are. You learn a lot about a person by knowing what music they like and what books have been meaningful/enjoyable to them. Plus it might give me some ideas about books to read. Thanks!:)
  10. Religious Music
    "Religious music" could include any number of pre-Christian "pagan" religions, although that term is hard to define. It would include polytheistic religions, like ancient Egyptian and Greek and Roman religions. I'm thinking that Wikkan religions would be included in this. Maybe Taggert knows...
  11. Opera
    I've decided to try a plunge into deep Wagner nerdiness and am looking for a book recommendation. What I'm really after is something covering the Ring cycle with strong analytical coverage of the music (plenty of musical examples please) as I'll be reading it alongside the scores.
  12. Beginners
    I am a beginning violin player currently using Suzuki and various other online resources. Can anyone offer any advice or insights on what the best book is to begin learning with? I do like the audio and sheet music offered in Suzuki but I feel like it is lacking in the theory and fundamentals...
