Jacques-Martin Hotteterre,Paul Marshall Douglas: Principles of the Flute, Recorder and Oboe

Principles of the Flute, Recorder and Oboe


The finest flutist of his time and honored "Flute de la Chambre du Roi" at the court of Louis XIV, Jacques-Martin Hotteterre (c. 1680 1760) wrote this instruction book for the transverse flute, recorder, and oboe. This treatise (originally titled "Principes de la Flute") was an important force in the competition between the flute and recorder and hastened the virtual extinction of the recorder as either an ensemble or solo instrument. The "Principes "has considerable practical use today, as well as being a treatise of central importance in the historical development of the flute. Most important, it contains an extensive discussion of principal ornaments and embellishments of the period (appoggiaturas, springers, terminated trills, vibrati, and mordents) and their proper and tasteful use. This information will be valuable to modern wind players of all kinds, instrumentalists in general, and musicologists. The long section treating the technique of the 7-hole transverse flute an ancestor of the modern instrument also has some modern applicability. While the 7-hole flute is far more primitive, it does have important elements in common with the modern instrument. The section on the recorder (an instrument which has not undergone change since the "Principes" was written) is an important period instruction book, as valuable to recorder players of today as it was to their counterparts in the eighteenth century. Curiously, in spite of its historical and practical interest, Hotteterre's treatise has not previously been available to the English-speaking world. Paul Marshall Douglas of the University of British Columbia has provided the first modern English-language translation in this edition. He has also included an introduction giving the known facts of Hotteterre's life, describing the eighteenth-century contest between flute and recorder, and noting the common usage of wind instruments at the time.

Things seem to be going well for Liv Silver: she's adjusting to her new home (and her new family) in London; she has a burgeoning romance with Henry Harper, one of the cutest boys in school; and the girl who's been turning her dreams into nightmares, Anabel, is now locked up. But serenity doesn't last for long. It seems that Liv's troubles are far from over - in fact, suddenly they're piling up. School gossip blogger Secrecy knows all of Liv's most intimate secrets, Henry might be hiding something from her, and at night Liv senses a dark presence following her through the corridors of the dream world. Does someone have a score to settle with Liv? Romance, adventure, and danger abound in Dream On, the second book in the Silver Trilogy. Based around a compilation of his popular Schumpeter columns, Adrian Wooldridge takes a look at the forces that are disrupting today's fast-moving business world. The disruption has many causes: the internet's rapid spread; the challenge from emerging markets in innovation and manufacturing; clever management techniques that are forcing companies to rethink strategy; robots advancing from the factory Principles of the Flute, Recorder and Oboe download epub floor into the service sector; and much more. These developments are shaking business and social life to its foundations, producing a new set of winners and losers, and forcing everyone to adapt and change. The Great Disruption explains: - The forces that are disrupting today's business world, and the management gurus that predicted them. - Who are the winners and the losers, and how institutions have tried (and often failed) to change. - How classic management problems, such as talent management, distribution, and outsourcing persist, but with a new twist. - What the future holds for companies, universities, competition and society. It also reminds us why Joseph Schumpeter's ideas about creative destruction are particularly valuable today.
