1 ABRAMOV-Van RIJK, Elena Parlar cantando : The Practice of Reciting Verses in Italy from 1300 to 1600.
Peter Lang, Bern, &c , 2009, ISBN:9783039116706 
ABRAMOV-Van RIJK, Elena. Parlar cantando : The Practice of Reciting Verses in Italy from 1300 to 1600. Bern, &c : Peter Lang, (2009). First Edition. Pp (4),v-xviii,(2),1-395,(1). With a few illustrations in the text. 8vo, rust red illustrated paper-covered boards, black lettering to front cover & spine. "This book is a pioneering attempt to explore the fascinating and hardly known realm of reciting poetry in medieval and Renaissance Italy. The study of more than 50 treatises on both music and poetry, as well as other literary sources and documents from the period between 1300 and 1600, highlights above all the practice of parlar cantando ('speaking through singing' the term found in De li contrasti, a fourteenth-century treatise on poetry) as rooted in the art of reciting verses. Situating the practice of parlar cantando in the context of late medieval poetic delivery, the author sheds new light on the origin and history of late Renaissance opera style, which their inventors called stile recitativo, rappresentativo or, exactly, parlarcantando. The deepest roots of the Italian tradition of parlar cantando ar e thus revealed, and the cultural background of the birth of opera is reinterpreted and revisited from the much broader perspective of what appears tobe the most important Italian mode of music making between the age of Dant e and Petrarch and the beginning of Italian opera around 1600." - from the rear.

If a country as limitless as this can ever be said to have posed for its portrait, certainly the photographer behind the camera wasAnsel Adams. And now he has given us this book. Here, in his prodigiously illustrated autobiography, completed just prior to his death in 1984, is Adams' testament of a life of dedication, adventure, achievement, remarkable friendships, plainspoken wisdom, and a concern for man and nature. It is a memoir of times spent with Alfred Stieglitz, Georgia O'Keeffe, Edward Weston, Nancy and Beaumont Newhall, Imogen Cunningham, Edwin Land, and so many more in the pantheon of the art and photography world. Here, not only in hisown words but also in photographs the world over (and many others never be fore pbulished), this extraordinary man steps forward to share with us his love of music, the beauty of the wilderness, loyalties and dreams, and thatclear-eyed vision that saw beyond the mountains the heart of America." - f rom the dustjacket.

Along the way, she weathered the London Blitz of World War II; her parents' diivorce; her mother's turbulent second marriage to Canadian tenor Ted Andrews, and a childhood spent on radio, in music halls, and giving concert performances all over England. Julie's professional career began at the agee age of twelve, and in 1948 she became the youngest solo performer ever to participate in a Royal Command Performance before the Queen. kjueen. When only eighteen, she left home for the United States to make her Broadway debut in The Boy Friend, and thus began her meteoric rise to stardom. Home is filled with numerous anecdotes. including stories of performing in My Fair Lady with Rex Harrison on Broadway and in the West End, and in Camelot with Richard Burton; ay ; her first marriage to famed set and costume designer Tony Walton, culminating with the birth of their daughter, Emma; and the call from Hollywood and what lay beyond. Julie Andrews' career has flourished over seven decades. From her legendary Broadway performances, to her roles in such iconic films as The Sound of Music, Mary Poppins, Thoroughly Modern Millie, Hawaii, 10, and The Princess Diaries, to her award-winning television appearances, multiple album releases, concert tours, international humanitarian work, best-selling children's books, and championship of literacy, Julie's influence spans generations. Today, she lives with her husband of thirty-eight years, the acclaimed writer/director Blake Edwards; they have five children and seven grandchildren. Featuring over fifty personal photos, many never before seen, this is the personal memoir Julie Andrews' audiences have been waiting for.Light wear to foot of spine, else very good in nicked, unclipped dustjacke t (with Autographed Copy sticker on front). 150.00
