The Amasis Painter and his world

The Amasis Painter and his world: Vase-painting in sixth-century B.C. Athens by Dietrich Von Bothmer
English | 1985 | ISBN: 0892360860 | 246 Pages | PDF | 46 MB

The Amasis Painter was one of ancient Greeceā€™s greatest vase painters, yet his own name has not been recorded, and he is known today only by the name of the potter whose works he most often decorated. A true individualist in the history of Athenian painting, he produced work distinguished by its delicacy, precision, and wit. When the Amasis Painter began his artistic career around 560 B.C., Attic black-figure vase-painting was already fully established and about to overtake Corinthian pottery in the competition for the Etruscan market. Toward the end of his extraordinarily long career around 515 or even later-the red-figure technique had been invented and was rapidly supplanting black-figure in fashion.
Inventing the Business of Opera: The Impresario and His World in Seventeenth-Century Venice

Inventing the Business of Opera: The Impresario and His World in Seventeenth-Century Venice (A.M.S. Studies in Music) by Beth L. Glixon
English | Dec 1, 2005 | ISBN: 0195154169 | 424 Pages | PDF | 24 MB

In mid-seventeenth-century Venice, opera first emerged from courts and private drawing rooms to become a form of public entertainment. Early commercial operas were elaborate spectacles, featuring ornate costumes and set design along with dancing and music. As ambitious works of theater, these productions required not only significant financial backing, but also strong managers to oversee several months of rehearsals and performances.

Alban Berg and His World

Alban Berg and His World (Bard Music Festival) by Christopher Hailey
English | August 29, 2010 | ISBN: 0691148554 | 392 pages | PDF | 3 MB

Alban Berg and His World is a collection of essays and source material that repositions Berg as the pivotal figure of Viennese musical modernism. His allegiance to the austere rigor of Arnold Schoenberg's musical revolution was balanced by a lifelong devotion to the warm sensuousness of Viennese musical tradition and a love of lyric utterance, the emotional intensity of opera, and the expressive nuance of late-Romantic tonal practice.
