Best known as the composer (with lyricist Hal David) of such 1960s hits as Dionne Warwick's "Walk On By," Dusty Springfield's "The Look of Love," and the Carpenters' "Close to You," Burt Bacharach wrote the music for over 700 published songs, which have been recorded by some 2,000 artists - from Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley to the Beatles and the Supremes. Song By Song is a witty, cheeky song-by-song journey through Bacharach's vast recorded oeuvre, from Nat "King" Cole's little-known 1952 version of 'Once in a Blue Moon" to Burt's recent collaborations with Elvis Costello, Lyle Lovett and Chicago.
"...it is the evident quiet approbation which best pleases me It is apparent that this opera is rising rapidly and steadily in estimation." -- Mozart, letter to his wife, October 7-8, 1791.
Unfortunately, his tragic death a scant two months later prevented Mozart from ever realizing the full accuracy of this observation, made a few performances after the cool reception given The Magic Flute at its Viennese premiere.
In May 1791, Mozart's friend Emanuel Schikaneder commissioned The Magic Flute. In keeping with the popular level of this theater, Schikaneder himself supplied Mozart with the libretto about the rescue of a good fairy's daughter from a wicked magician by a hero armed with a magic flute. After a good deal of the music was written, the composer and librettist -- both Freemasons -- grafted Masonic ideals onto the plot, transforming a simple fairy tale into a moralistic allegory and a Singspiel into one of the world's greatest operas.
This handsome, moderately priced volume, reprinted directly form an authoritative edition, will enable musicians, music students, and opera lovers to gain a fuller appreciation of Mozart's mastery of operatic language, orchestral color, and dramatic expression. A helpful feature of this edition is the inclusion of all spoken dialog, usually abbreviated in other editions.

Mozart's piano sonatas and fantasies comprise a body of work so central to the keyboard repertoire that a thorough acquaintance with them is as essential for every serious pianist as it is rewarding for piano students at all levels.
This excellent edition contains all 19 sonatas and 4 fantasies, including works that have been erroneously omitted from most Mozart editions. Ranging in their technical demands from the relatively easy Sonata in C Major, K545 (one of the most popular piano works ever composed), to the profoundly moving Fantasy in D Minor, K397, and the challenging Sonata No. 19 in D Major, K576, these works are imbued with the clarity, grace, variety, and limitless invention that have made them perennial favorites with performers and audiences alike. Reprinted from authoritative editions, including Breitkopf & H rtel's Complete Works, this volume is among the lowest-priced and most thorough editions now available.
The plays of Shakespeare inspired Verdi's deepest resources. Macbeth (1847) was one of the composer's earliest operatic-dramatic triumphs and Otello (1887) was among his latest. At the end of his life Verdi astonished a public accustomed to his tragic fervor with Falstaff, a gem of pure comedy.
Verdi's last great work premiered in the composer's 80th year. This reproduction of the complete and unabridged score brings the final proof of the maestro's universality to the many students, musicians, and opera lovers who would see for themselves the summation of Verdi's brilliant orchestral and compositional powers. Ricordi was Verdi's original publisher; this reprint of his edition contains the standard, definitive score and includes English translations of the original front matter. Falstaff benefits from Verdi's understanding of Wagner and other operatic innovators. Nevertheless, between its concise but forceful orchestration and its copious melodic invention, it remains singularly Verdian. Its wit astonishes as much today as it did in 1893.
