One must look long and hard to find a piano pupil who hasn’t studied Beethoven’s two ´´sonate facile” op. 49.They are not only relatively easy to play but highly lyrical and effective, ideally combining joy in music-making with a mastery of early classical literature. The two works were composed much earlier than the opus number suggests. Beethoven wrote them around 1797/98, during a time when he also worked on one of his most important sonatas, the ´´Grande Sonate pathétique” op. 13.Jonathan Del Mar, currently one of the most renowned Beethoven scholars, stands for a meticulously edited Urtext edition on the basis of an intensive study of all sources. Performers are presented with a musical text which is based on the latest research findings and whose fine engraving and practical page turns facilitate the study of these works. This Urtext edition includes an informative Introduction and valuable notes on historical performance practice. Here the pianist will also find information regarding the dynamics of the second sonata whose sources contain hardly any dynamic markings at all. Source discrepancies and editorial principles are discussed in the detailed Critical Commentary.• Up-to-date scholarly-critical Urtext edition• Well-presented engraving• Practical page turns• Relatively easy to play• Enlightening Introduction and notes on period performance practice (Eng/Ger)• Detailed Critical Commentary (Eng)
Instrument : fluteNombre de Pages : 80Marcel Moyse has become one of the legendary great flautists of the 20th century. As a pupil of Tannanel and successor to Gaubert at the Conservatoire National de Paris, he stands in the direct tradition of the ´French School´. How I Stayed in Shape is his last book of studies (1974), presented here for the first time in a trilingual edition (French, German, English). His pedagogic and artistic experiences are set out in their entirety with the aim of helping professional flute players who have little time to practise, and also ‘everyone who loves the flute, while not forgetting the music’. This volume aims to improve the basic aspects of flute playing (formation of tone, intonation, articulation, phrasing) using examples from the repertoire and Moyse´s own detailed comments.Content : Tägliche Übungen, Etüden sowie Stücke und Werkausschnitte verschiedener Komponisten

Shortlisted for Audible´s Listen of the Year, 2006. English magicians were once the wonder of the known world, with fairy servants at their beck and call; they could command winds, mountains, and woods. But by the early 1800s they have long since lost the ability to perform magic. They can only write long, dull papers about it, while fairy servants are nothing but a fading memory. But at Hurtfew Abbey in Yorkshire, the rich, reclusive Mr. Norrell has assembled a wonderful library of lost and forgotten books from England´s magical past and regained some of the powers of England´s magicians. He goes to London and raises a beautiful young woman from the dead. Soon he is lending his help to the government in the war against Napoleon Bonaparte, creating ghostly fleets of rain-ships to confuse and alarm the French. All goes well until a rival magician appears. Jonathan Strange is handsome, charming, and talkative, the very opposite of Mr. Norrell. Strange thinks nothing of enduring the rigors of campaigning with Wellington´s army and doing magic on battlefields. Astonished to find another practicing magician, Mr. Norrell accepts Strange as a pupil. But it soon becomes clear that their ideas of what English magic ought to be are very different... Sophisticated, witty, and ingeniously convincing, Susanna Clarke´s magisterial novel weaves magic into a flawlessly detailed vision of historical England. She has created a world so thoroughly enchanting that 32 hours leave readers longing for more. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Simon Prebble.

Beethoven, Ludwig vanGrande Sonate for Pianoforte E-flat major op. 7If the nickname ´´Appassionata” was appropriate for one of Beethoven’s Sonatas, it would be for his E-flat major Sonata op. 7 rather than his famous work in F minor op. 57. This was Carl Czerny’s opinion who felt that op. 7 was written in a rather passionate state of mind. It was not only Beethoven’s first ´´Grande Sonate” but also his first work of this genre which he had published individually.The earliest sketches for Beethoven’s Grande Sonate op. 7 date from 1796 and the first edition was issued in October 1797. This work is one of the longest and most demanding of Beethoven’s piano sonatas. Its four movements cover a wide range of emotions – a challenge that may well have overtaxed the dedicatee, Beethoven’s then 16 year old pupil Anna Luise Barbara (Babette) Countess Keglevicz.The worldwide renowned Beethoven specialist Jonathan Del Mar draws on all available sources for his scholarly-critical Urtext edition. The result of his thorough research is a reliable musical text accompanied by a detailed Critical Commentary. The elegant engraving with practical page turns and an optimal layout for this complex music meet the needs of performers. Indispensable information on performance-related issues (the use of the pedal, articulation, ornaments) adds to the value of this edition.
