Die Sache F R Die Mein Leben Einsteht Studien Zu Leben Und Werk Des Wiener Komponisten Hans Rott from the Author: Uwe Harten. »Was die Musik an ihm verloren hat, ist gar nicht zu ermessen.« Gustav Mahler war es, der sich im Jahre 1900 in dieser Weise über seinen früheren Studienkollegen Hans Rott (1858–1884) äußerte. Trotzdem dauerte es noch fast 90 Jahre, bevor die Musikwelt auf den mit nicht einmal 26 Jahren in der Psychiatrie verstorbenen Komponisten aufmerksam wurde: Die 1989 erfolgte Uraufführung der beeindruckenden E-Dur-Symphonie, die Rott im Alter von 22 Jahren vollendet hatte, bildete hierbei den Ausgangspunkt für die Wiederentdeckung des Bruckner-Schülers und Wagner-Anhängers. Der vorliegende Band vereint die Referate, die im Rahmen des anlässlich des 150. Geburtstages von Hans Rott veranstalteten Symposions in Wien gehalten wurden. Unter den Beiträgen finden sich sowohl Arbeiten zur Biographie und zum gesellschaftlichen Umfeld des Komponisten als auch Studien zu seinem Werk, zu den auf ihn wirkenden musikalischen Einflüssen und zur Rezeption seiner Werke. Hatte sich die wissenschaftliche Forschung in den ersten Jahren nach der Entdeckung der Musik Rotts zunächst auf den sicherlich unüberhörbaren Einfluss konzentriert, den seine E-Dur-Symphonie auf das symphonische Schaffen Mahlers ausgeübt hat, so ist die hier vorgelegte Aufsatzsammlung Beleg dafür, dass mehr und mehr Hans Rott selbst, seine Person und sein Werk, in den Mittelpunkt des wissenschaftlichen Interesses gerückt sind.

Jericho S War from the Author: Gerald Seymour. 'He now writes better endings than anyone else, and the extended finale is particularly brilliantly orchestrated.' The Sunday Times, Thriller of the Month In a moment of nerve shredding suspense that will affect many thousands of lives, a handful of men and women will converge on a barren stretch of Yemeni desert. Each of them will need spirit, courage and immense luck to survive the next forty-eight hours. Corrie Rankin is already a legend at MI6 when he is called back with little regard for the horrors of his recent past. Corrie is sent to take advantage of a chance to take down a high value player in the war against Al Qaeda - and, a chance for the Brits to succeed without begging help from the Americans. The sniper and his spotter who will go with Corrie are less than top team, but the best that can be found if the mission is to stay 'deniable'. And once the three misfits are in-country, they must rely on intelligence brought to them by a young British Jihadi - on the ground and close to the target - and now turned. And, close to him, is an archaeologist digging in the ruins of the Queen of Sheba' civilisation who will be their cut-out contact point. The mission is the brain-child of an apparently old, fat fool in a striped cricket blazer, a sweating figure of fun among the ex-pat community across the border in Muscat. This is Jericho ... not as old or fat or foolish as he appears, nor as harmless. This is Jericho's War. The weapons it deploys, the brutal aims it pursues, are state of the art. The fear it breeds and the raw bravery it demands are as timeless as the desert itself.

Edge Of Irony from the Author: Marjorie Perloff. Among the brilliant writers and thinkers who emerged from the multicultural and polyglot world of the Austro-Hungarian Empire were Sigmund Freud, Ludwig Wittgenstein, Franz Kafka, and Paul Celan. For them, the trauma of the First World War included the sudden dissolution of the geographical entity into which they were born. Austria, the small, fragile republic that emerged from the Empire in 1918, became in Karl Kraus s words the research laboratory for world destruction. In this major reconsideration of European modernism, Marjorie Perloff identifies and explores the aesthetic world that emerged from the rubble of WWI Vienna and other former Hapsburg territoriesan Austro-Modernist ethos that strangely anticipates the darkness and cynicism of our own disillusioned twenty-first-century culture. Perloff introduces works in a variety of genresdrama (Kraus s Last Days of Mankind ), the novel (Roth s The Radetzky March ), the essay (central to Robert Musil s The Man without Qualities ), the memoir (Elias Canetti s The Tongue Set Free ), the lyric poem (Celan s love poetry), and the philosophical notebook (Wittgenstein)so as to give even non-specialists a sense of the complex and troubled literary scene created in the shadow of empire and war. These writers created a deeply skeptical and resolutely individualistic modernismone much less ideologically charged, for example, than its counterpart in Germany. Austro-Modernism was not avant-garde in the usual senses, Perloff shows. But its savage and grotesquely comic irony, its conviction, most memorably expressed by Wittgenstein, that argumentation was best conveyed through aphorism, its fondness for paradox and contradiction as modes of understanding, and its early embrace of an aesthetics of documentation and appropriationthese may well be the most lasting legacies of any modernist movement. Austro-Modernism emerges here as a vital alternative, not only to the French and Anglo-American modernisms that have largely defined the period, but also to Weimar and the Frankfurt School, so central to Anglo-American cultural studies."

The Roof Garden Commission from the Author: Beatrice Galilee. Celebrated Argentinian artist Adrián Villar Rojas is known for his site-specific sculptural installations. For The Theater of Disappearance, the artist mines The Met’s collection, drawing on the five thousand years of world history within its galleries, to create an elaborate ahistorical work. Set atop the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden, Villar Rojas’s installation transforms the space into a performative diorama, where banquet tables occupy an oversize black-and-white checkerboard floor punctuated by sculptures that fuse together human figures and artifacts found within the museum. The resulting juxtapositions put forth a radical reinterpretation of museum practices. This illustrated book is the fifth edition in a series that documents and contextualizes The Met’s annual rooftop commissions. The introductory essay by Beatrice Galilee explores the conceptual framework that informs Villar Rojas’s remarkable commission as well as his interventions around the world. While exploring the Museum, Villar Rojas took thousands of photographs of objects and moments of interest. A selection of these images is featured here alongside the artist’s commentary, offering a unique visual diary of Villar Rojas’s thought process as he developed this arresting installation.

Return Migration from the Author: International Organization for Migration. This study addresses major issues of return migration. The main emphasis, however, is on the problematic return of irregular migrants, rejected asylum-seekers and refugees, including in particular temporary refugees. It provides an historical retrospect of voluntary return migration. The study offers an analytical overview of current policy framework and operational programmes related to return migration. It examines some of the major policy issues and operational challenges facing countries in Central and Eastern Europe as they deal with the return of irregular migrants.It is concluded that return migration should be viewed as a process that includes pre-return preparation and post-return reintegration. The study states that countries should take full advantage of the services of intergovernmental organizations to promote voluntary return.
