Brahms 2 from the Author: Michael Musgrave. This second volume of Brahms studies contains twelve contributions by leading international authorities on various music. Like the preceding volume of the same title (edited by Robert Pascall), Michael Musgrave's volume aims to provide original scholarly material on different facets of a major composer still inadequately discussed in book form and employs more precise methods of analysis and more critical approaches to materials then generally available in writings on Brahms in English. Half of the volume takes the music itself as focus, though from very different vantage points. There are two studies of a single opus (the two String Quartets Op. 51 Nos, 1 and 2), discussions of the Fourth Symphony and the motet 'Warum', and a view of Brahms's harmony. The underlying historical theme emerges more openly in an account of Brahms's interest in German Renaissance music. The remaining essays give details of the state of Brahms's unpublished compositions and arrangements at his death and the problematic disposal of his possessions (including musical ones), explore his own attitude to his historical position, and outline the reception of his music in Germany and, to begin with, in England.

Toxicologic And Analytical Studies With T 2 And Related Trichothecene Mycotoxins from the Author: . T-2 toxin intravascularly produced a cardiovascular shock syndrome in swine characterized by early decreased cardiac output and urine production, and a later decline in blood pressure. Core body temperature remained normal but extremities became cold. Hemoglobin of arterial blood was oxygen saturated in spite of cutaneous cyanosis. Severe metabolic acidosis developed. There were marked elevations in plasma 6-keto-PGF1alpha, and thromboxane B2 (metabolites of vasoactive prostanoids), and transitory elevations in epinephrine and norepinephrine. Serum calcium and glucose declined while phosphorus, BUN, magnesium and potassium increased. Pathologic changes included lymphoid necrosis, gastroenteric mucosal hyperemia, enterocyte necrosis, focal myocardial degeneration and endocardial hemorrhage. A gas chromatographic-electron capture detection method for the analysis of T-2 toxin and metabolites in plasma and urine has been developed. Isolates of Fusarium have been obtained and are being screened for trichothecene profiles. In vitro incubations of T-2 toxin with swine liver microsomes has resulted in the production of several new metabolites.

Analytical Studies In World Music Includes Cd from the Author: Michael Tenzer. Combining the approaches of ethnomusicology and music theory, Analytical Studies in World Music offers fresh perspectives for thinking about how musical sounds are shaped, arranged, and composed by their diverse makers worldwide. Eleven inspired, insightful, and in-depth explanations of Iranian sung poetry, Javanese and Balinese gamelan music, Afro-Cuban drumming, flamenco, modern American chamber music, and a wealth of other genres create a border-erasing compendium of ingenious music analyses. Through description of contexts of performance and creation, and especially compositional and formal construction, each chapter proposes stimulating ways to hear, conceive, and imagine these repertoires. Selections on the companion CD are carefully matched with extensive transcriptions and illuminating diagrams in every chapter. Opening rich cross-cultural perspectives on music, this volume addresses the practical needs of students and scholars in the contemporary world of fusions, contact, borrowing, and curiosity about music everywhere.
