Inhaltsangabe: A Supplementary Catalog of Wind Band and Wind Ensemble Repertoire is the tenth volume in Dr. David Whitwell?s ground breaking thirteen-volume History and Literature of the Wind Band and Wind Ensemble series. This volume represents Whitwell?s continuing research in the field of wind band repertoire with a focus on libraries in England and Italy. Because of the earlier political connection between Northern Italy and Austria, the holdings of the civic libraries in Italy offer important contributions to our understanding of the Harmoniemusik Period of Central Europe. With respect to large band repertoire, Italy was far ahead of the rest of Europe in the creation of an important body of aesthetic music. Whitwell?s meticulous scholarship reveals the continuous history of the wind ensemble, from its earliest roots to the nineteenth century ? an unbroken tradition of wind music that music scholars have never been fully able to appreciate until now.
Über den Autor: David Whitwell studied conducting at the Akademie für Musik, Vienna, with Hans Swarowsky, and with Eugene Ormandy. He has conducted resident ensembles in Austria, Switzerland, Israel, Japan, Wales, England, Germany, The Netherlands, Bolivia, Peru, Korea, Taiwan, Russia and the United States, among them the Philadelphia Orchestra, Seattle Symphony Orchestra, the Czech Radio Orchestras of Brno and Bratislava, and The National Youth Orchestra of Israel. David Whitwell was named as one of six men who have determined the course of American bands during the second half of the twentieth century, in the definitive history, The Twentieth Century American Wind Band (Meredith Music), and he is one of nine men described by Paula A. Crider in The Conductor?s Legacy (Chicago: GIA, 2010) as ?the legendary conductors? of the twentieth century.
