Pressestimmen

"David Schiff points us forward, observing that Ellingtons music asks us to see with our ears and hear with our eyes. Writing as a composer and scholar, he has a gift for making complex ideas strikingly clear. His insights move across a huge terrain of twentieth-century culture, as he builds bridges in his musical and cultural analysis where many have not seen a connection. Yet each musical work, each artist, is given his or her equal due. In this sense, he has met the spiritual and cultural challenge of Ellingtons life work." - Marty Ehrlich, Composer/Instrumentalist, Associate Professor of Improvisation and Contemporary Music, Hampshire College

Klappentext

"The Ellington Century" is a wonderful journey through the world of music and art. If you are already an aficionado of Ellington's music, you will enjoy the author's informative and detailed analysis of the composer's work and musical influences. If you are less familiar, this book puts Ellington's music in perspective with the great classical composers of the twentieth century. David Schiff's remarkable insight into the historical and musical parallels between these composers is a delight to read and his references are vast, from Schoenberg s "Pierrot Lunaire" and Stravinsky s "Agon" to television s "Sesame Street." Schiff writes with a sense of humor and an enthusiasm for Ellington's music that comes out on every page. George Manahan, Music Director, American Composers Orchestra

5.0 von 5 Sternen A very readable and interesting book 21. Februar 2012
Von Joan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
The Ellington Century by David Schiff is very readable and covered an enormous amount of ground centering on jazz and Duke Ellington and their importance to music worldwide during the 20th century. Schiff covers many innovative composers and how they responded to prejudice (not just racism although certainly that) war, and technological change (among other things, and there's sex too!) experienced during the period. Schiff "meshes" all the composers and the music which makes the book fun to read and enables you to grasp his point. I had never thought in this way before about classical and jazz music, so it made for a very different and interesting book.
4.0 von 5 Sternen A Giant of our Culture 22. Februar 2013
Von Joe McCray - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
When you consider the role of racial bigotry in our culture as its overarching feature, the accomplishments of Duke Ellington are even more amazing than the unparalled beauty of his work. So much of what Ellington and his orchestera did over the years influences our lives. Probably more importantly it imparts joy across the racial divide - 'nobody doesn't love ellington'. Schiff's work tries to explain all that and, although it falls short of that goal, goes well down the road toward it.
5.0 von 5 Sternen A must read for jazz scholars and players alike. 15. Mai 2013
Von Tony Steve - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

This is a wonderful book by Dr. Schiff.
If you want deeper insight to Ellington, his music and the world around him this is the book to begin your journey.
