This annotated chronology of western music is the third in a series of outlines on the history of music in western civilization. It contains a 120-page annotated bibliography, followed by a detailed, documented outline that is divided into ten chapters. Each chapter is written in chronological order with every line being documented by means of abbreviations that refer to the annotated bibliography. There are short biographies of the theorists and detailed discussions of their works. The information on music is organized by classes of music rather than by composer. Also included are lists of manuscripts with descriptions of their contents and notations as to where they may be found. The material for the outline has been taken from primary and secondary sources along with articles from periodicals.

Like the other two volumes in this series, "Music History from the Late Roman through the Gothic Periods, 313-1425" and "Music History During the Renaissance Period, 1425-1520," this volume will be an important research tool for anyone interested in music history.

With an introductory chapter discussing the very earliest productions--The Beggar's Opera (1750), The Archers (1796), Tom and Jerry (1823), and The Bohemian Girl (1844)--A Chronology of American Musical Theater offers in-depth coverage of Broadway musicals from 1850-2001. The book's entries span more than 5,000 shows, including not only "book musicals" but also revivals, revues, burlesques, operettas, farce comedies, comic operas, ice skating shows, rock operas, and other musical spectacles that appeared on Broadway stages.
Drawing on primary documents--playbills, newspaper reviews, advertisements, and articles--Richard C. Norton has assembled a wealth of information in an easy-to-use format. All productions appear in chronological order by season in the first two volumes and are indexed alphabetically in volume three, allowing readers to quickly locate shows by either date or title, with variant titles also included. Entries contain the full cast, including chorus and dance ensemble (when known), composers, lyricists, book writers, choreographers, set designers, costumers, lighting designers, directors, and producers, followed by details of acts and scenes, and a comprehensive list of songs, sketches, dances, and specialties. The opening paragraph of each entry also contains information which does not appear in programs, such as opening and closing dates, change of venue, return engagements, and number of performances. In addition to the title index, complete song and principal performer indexes are also included, as well as a selected index of personal names of creators and secondary performers. No other resource--print or electronic--offers as many musicals as the Chronology of American Musical Theater.
For anyone wishing to trace the history of a Broadway musical, or to research any aspect of this vital popular art, this three-volume set is the best, and in many instances, the only place to start.

J. returns home without the hat, but news of the photo has spread like wildfire. Soon all the best jazz musicians in the neighborhood have shown up at Uncle Click's front door for a photo shoot of historic proportions.

Sweet Music in Harlem captures the energy and excitement of a magical time in Harlem's jazz history, highlighting the dynamic friendship of a close-knit community.


A Political Biography Of Eliza Haywood

RRP $457.99

While under arrest in 1750 on suspicion of producing a seditious pamphlet Eliza Haywood insisted she 'never wrote any thing in a political way'. This study of her life and works, the first full-length biography in almost a century, views Haywood's life through the prism of her shifting political allegiances. Known today for her novels of sexual passion, Haywood wrote much in the 'political way'. She exposed ongoing financial corruptions in her early scandal chronicles. By the mid-1730s she had joined the campaign to topple Walpole, attacking him in the blistering Oriental satire Eovaai (1736) and performing on stage in Fielding's final plays at the Haymarket. In the forties and fifties she produced political journalism for various factions in the Opposition. She sold anti-ministerial propaganda at her own pamphlet-shop at the Sign of Fame in Covent Garden, wrote a Jacobite weekly paper attacking the Duke of Cumberland and promoted the mid-century cult of the Patriot Prince in the deceptively entitled Epistles to the Ladies (1749-50).
