This collection of essays examines the diverse ways in which music and ideas about music have been disseminated in print and other media from the sixteenth century onward. Contributors look afresh at unfamiliar facets of the sixteenth-century book trade and the circulation of manuscript and printed music in the seventeenth to nineteenth centuries. They also analyze and critique new media forms, showing how a dizzying array of changing technologies has influenced what we hear, whom we hear, and how we hear. The repertoires considered include Western art music -- from medieval to contemporary -- as well as popular music and jazz. Assembling contributions from experts in a wide range of fields, such as musicology, music theory, music history, and jazz and popular music studies, Music in Print and Beyond: Hildegard von Bingen to The Beatles sets new standards for the discussion of music's place in Western cultural life.

Jazz Phillips is a lightning rod for strange cases. After the loss of his beloved Nellie, he's poured himself into his work chasing serial killers and busting dirty corporations. When he's not doing that, he's chasing light with a camera. Then a friend talks him into displaying his photos at a show in Little Rock. When he's not looking, someone leaves a camera data card where Jazz is sure to find it. There is no name on the card so he plugs it into his computer. What he finds is shocking, twenty-four pictures of people who have all been smothered. There is no doubt in his mind that a serial killer is at work and has issued him a challenge: catch me if you can. Yet Jazz has no idea where to begin to look. The security tapes of the photo show are long gone and neither he nor his friend remember anyone suspicious from the show. Aside from the data card, there is no evidence Jazz can take to the police or the FBI. Then the killer strikes again. To spur Jazz on, the killer sends him a message in the form of a body. It is someone Jazz cares for deeply, and Jazz knows he has no choice but to accept the challenge. It's kill or be killed. This killer will not stop until Jazz is utterly destroyed.
Intended for the music student, the professional musician, and the music lover, Chamber Music: An Essential History covers repertoire from the Renaissance to the present, crossing genres to include string quartets, piano trios, clarinet quintets, and other groupings. Mark A. Radice gives a thorough overview and history of this long-established and beloved genre, typically performed by groups of a size to fit into spaces such as homes or churches and tending originally toward the string and wind instruments rather than percussion. Radice begins with chamber music's earliest expressions in the seventeenth century, discusses its most common elements in terms of instruments and compositional style, and then investigates how those elements play out across several centuries of composers- among them Mozart, Bach, Haydn, and Brahms- and national interpretations of chamber music. While Chamber Music: An Essential History is intended largely as a textbook, it will also find an audience as a companion volume for musicologists and fans of classical music, who may be interested in the background to a familiar and important genre.
