    The Belwin String Builder is a string class method in which the violin, viola, cello, and bass play together throughout. Each book, however, is a complete unit and may be used separately for class or individual instruction. The material in this book is realistically graded so that only a minimum of explanatory material is required. Each melody is interesting and will provide the basis for a fine left hand technic and bow arm. Available in three levels for violin, viola, cello, bass, piano accompaniment, and teacher's manual.

  • 'On My Way': The Untold Story of Rouben Mamoulian, George Gershwin, and Porgy and Bess

    A forgotten master of American musical theater, Rouben Mamoulian directed the original production of Porgy and Bess, the opera that catapulted his career and led to both successes and failures. Culling newly released information from the Mamoulian Archives at the Library of Congress, Joseph Horowitz shows that, more than any other individual, Mamoulian transformed DuBose Heyward’s 1925 novella, Porgy, from a quasi-realistic regional cameo into an epic theater work about suffering and redemption. In vividly rendered scenes of sound and movement, “On My Way” transports readers to the rehearsals and performances that Mamoulian singularly reconceived and choreographed, and the laudatory or scathing reviews that followed. Part history and part biography, “On My Way” re-creates Mamoulian’s unique directorial style on stage and screen, his collaboration with musical genius George Gershwin, and the opera that changed the face of American musical life.
  • 'Round About Midnight: A Portrait of Miles Davis (Updated Edition)

    From 1975 to 1981 the jazz giant Miles Davis temporarily retired from music. Almost completely reclusive, nobody outside of a very close circle knew what was happening to him. Rumors abounded: he was sick, he was dying, he was healthy; he was playing the trumpet, the organ, nothing at all. Only one jazz writer was able to get close to him during this time: Eric Nisenson. From 1978 to 1981 Nisenson conducted dozens of interviews with Miles Davis and his associates. The result was 'Round About Midnight, an engaging firsthand account of Miles's fascinating and difficult career.From his recordings with Charlie Parker and the Birth of the Cool nonet, through the Coltrane quintet, the Gil Evans-arranged masterpieces of the sixties, the landmark Kind of Blue album, the Shorter/Hancock/Carter/Williams group, and the success of his fusion recordings of the seventies, Miles's personality - contemplative, abruptly defiant, strong, elegant - meshed with his art to form one of the most compelling legends in the history of American music. While actively disdaining his audience, he sought to broaden it by incorporating elements of other musics - classical, flamenco, rock, funk - into his uncompromising jazz. This contradictory combination of contempt and a desire for recognition fueled controversy in both his public and private lives, and resulted in Miles's lengthy self-imposed isolation.Nisenson broke through that isolation, and his biographical portrait is vivid and telling. This updated edition features a new preface, new material covering Miles in the eighties, and a new recommended listening section.
