Beethoven, A Life (eBook, ePUB)
25,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This internationally bestselling biography of Ludwig van Beethoven, now translated into English for the first time, offers an unparalleled story of the composer's life and works. With unprecedented access to the archives at the Beethoven House in Bonn, renowned Beethoven conductor and scholar Jan Caeyers expertly weaves together a deeply human and complex image of Beethoven-his troubled youth, his unpredictable mood swings, his desires, relationships, and conflicts with family and friends, the mysteries surrounding his affair with the "immortal beloved," and the dramatic tale of his deafness. Caeyers also offers new insights into Beethoven's music and its gradual transformation from the work of a skilled craftsman into that of a consummate artist. Demonstrating an impressive command of the vast scholarship on this iconic composer, Caeyers brings Beethoven's world alive with elegant prose, memorable musical descriptions, and vivid depictions of Bonn and Vienna-the cities where Beethoven produced and performed his works. Caeyers explores how Beethoven's career was impacted by the historical and philosophical shifts taking place in the music world, and conversely, how his own trajectory changed the course of the music industry. Equal parts absorbing cultural history and lively biography, Beethoven, A Life paints a complex portrait of the musical genius who redefined the musical style of his day and went on to become one of the great pillars of Western art music.

Dear Mr. Watson, I came across this book at auction as part of a larger lot I purchased on speculation. The damage renders it useless to me, but a name inside it - Verona Bonn - led me to believe it might be of interest to you or your family.... Simon Watson, a young librarian on the verge of losing his job, lives alone on the Long Island Sound in his family home - a house, perched on the edge of a bluff, that is slowly crumbling toward the sea. His parents are long dead, his mother having drowned in the water his house overlooks. His younger sister, Enola, works for a traveling carnival reading tarot cards and seldom calls. In late June Simon receives a mysterious package from an antiquarian bookseller. The book tells the story of Amos and Evangeline, doomed lovers who worked in a traveling circus more than 200 years ago. The paper crackles with age as Simon turns the yellowed pages filled with notes, sketches, and whimsical flourishes. His best friend and fellow librarian, Alice, looks on in increasing alarm. Why does his grandmother's name, Verona Bonn, appear in this book? Why do so many women in his family drown on July 24? Is there a curse on his family - and could Enola, who has suddenly turned up at home for the first time in six years, risk the same fate in just a few weeks? In order to save her - and perhaps himself - Simon must try urgently to decode his family history while moving on from the past. The Book of Speculation is Erika Swyler's gorgeous and moving debut, a wondrous novel about the power of books and family and magic. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ari Fliakos.

At once radical, controversial and revered, Marina Abramovic (*1946 in Belgrade, Serbia) is one of the most discussed artists today.

The publication accompanying her first major retrospective in Europe gives an extensive overview of her work from the earliest years until today: film, photography, paintings and objects, installations and archival material. Since the early 1970s Marina Abramovic explores the intersection between performing and visual art in her work and, though rarely overtly political, poses questions of power and hierarchy.

Jan Swafford's biographies of composers Charles Ives and Johannes Brahms have established him as a revered music historian, capable of bringing his subjects vibrantly to life. His magnificent new biography of Ludwig van Beethoven peels away layers of legend to get to the living, breathing human being who composed some of the world's most iconic music. Swafford mines sources never before used in English-language biographies to reanimate the revolutionary ferment of Enlightenment-era Bonn, where Beethoven grew up and imbibed the ideas that would shape all of his future work. Swafford then tracks his subject to Vienna, capital of European music, where Beethoven built his career in the face of critical incomprehension, crippling ill health, romantic rejection, and 'fate's hammer', his ever-encroaching deafness. At the time of his death he was so widely celebrated that over ten thousand people attended his funeral. This book is a biography of Beethoven the man and musician, not the myth, and throughout, Swafford - himself a composer - offers insightful readings of Beethoven's key works. More than a decade in the making, this will be the standard Beethoven biography for years to come.

wulf architects. Rhythm and Melody
58,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The Stuttgart-based office wulf architekten, founded in 1987 by Tobias Wulf (born 1956), was joined by Kai Bierich (born1957) and Alexander Vohl (born 1961) as partners in 1996. Among their main works are the award-winning adidas factory outlet in Herzogenaurach (2003), the Stuttgart fair grounds (2007) and the State Revenue Office in Landshut (2011). Apart from several school buildings, wulf architekten is currently planning the new building for the IHK Region Stuttgart as well as the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases, located on the campus of the university hospital in Bonn. Having worked for well-known offices such as Gottfried Böhm, Joachim Schürmann, Auer + Weber and Behnisch & Partner in the past, wulf architekten have long since developed their very own position. Inspired by a deliberate openness towards innovation, however, they constantly challenge this position. Their way of finding solutions, unhindered by preconceived ideas and concepts, is what the architects call identity through search , this search also means movement and change. The only, meanwhile important, constant is their humanistic approach a distinct focus on people as a starting point for all design work. This central conviction shows in the sensuous quality and the variety of the office s built projects. Their numerous designs for competition do not only serve to acquire new project commissions, they have far greater significance: giving shape to new ideas, approaching new topics, experimenting and testing the boundaries. In texts that establish connections between central statements of the three partners and their built projects, the publication Rhythm and Melody offers a comprehensive insight into the way wulf architekten think and work. Architecture, as already hinted at by the title, is not understood as an isolated discipline here, but as part of a multifaceted cultural context.
