Modulation (Dover Books on Music) by Max Reger

Modulation (Dover Books on Music) by Max Reger
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 2.3 MB
Overview: "I consider him a genius," remarked Arnold Schoenberg of the progressive early modernist Max Reger (1873-1916). In addition to his international renown as a teacher, conductor, and pianist, Reger wrote more than 1,000 works in virtually every musical genre. Many scholars and musicians credit him with emancipating dissonance to a level that assisted Schoenberg’s development of serialism in the 1920s. Reger’s influence extends to other 20th-century composers, including Béla Bártok, Alban Berg, Arthur Honegger, Paul Hindemith, and Sergei Prokofiev.
Modulation – the change from one key to another – is a subject of critical importance to performers and composers in their study of harmony. Reger wrote this concise guide to modulation while teaching composition at Leipzig Conservatory, and the work continues to provide valuable insights and instruction for musicians at all levels. This new edition features newly engraved musical examples.
Genre: Non-Fiction > General Music

Books for Burning by Antonio Negri

Books for Burning: Between Civil War and Democracy in 1970s Italy by Antonio Negri
Requirements: .PDF reader, 8.4 Mb
Overview: Long before Antonio Negri became famous around the world for his groundbreaking volume Empire, he was infamous across Europe for the incendiary writings contained in this book. Books for Burning consists of five pamphlets that Negri wrote between 1971 and 1977, which attempt to identify and draw lessons from new conditions of class struggle that emerged in the course of the 1970s.

Conceived as organizational hypotheses intended for debate among the members of the political movements Workers’ Power (Potere operaio) and Organized Autonomy (Autonomia organizzata), these texts were later misread and misrepresented by the Italian state in its attempt to frame Negri as responsible for the assassination of former Italian president Aldo Moro, as the leader of the Red Brigades, and as the mastermind of an armed insurrection against the state. In the more than twenty-five years since their first publication, these texts have lost none of their originality, relevance or power to shock.
Genre: Non-Fiction > Faith, Beliefs & Philosophy
