Bartok: Concerto for Orchestra by Mr David Cooper

Book Description

Bartok's Concerto for Orchestra has proved to be one of the most popularly successful concert works of the twentieth century. It is seen by its champions as an example of Bartok's seamless blend of Eastern European folk music and Western art music, and by its detractors as indicative of the composer's artistic compromise. This book contains a discussion of the historical and musical contexts of the piece, its early performance history and critical reception. It also includes the first complete movement-by-movement synopsis of the Concerto as well as detailed technical information about the work. Throughout the study attention is drawn to the sources of Bartok's musical language, especially those derived from the many folk musics he studied.

Illusions of Equality (International Library of the Philosophy of Education Volume 7) by Mr David Cooper Illusions of Equality (International Library of the Philosophy of Education Volume 7), Paperback (July 2012)

Educational policy and discussion, in Britain and the USA, are increasingly dominated by the confused ideology of egalitarianism. David E. Cooper begins by identifying the principles hidden among the confusions, and argues that these necessarily conflict with the ideal of educational excellence.
