From the moment Quinn Montgomery sat behind her first snare and cymbal set, she was destined for fame and glory. As Hush Note's infamous female drummer, she sets the rhythm for the band's chart-toppings hits. When people tap their feet to their music, it's to her pulse. Quinn is content to live in a world away from her family and the cage of her youth. Her only regret is leaving Graham Hayes behind without a goodbye. No matter how many sold-out stadiums she plays, no matter how many crowds sing her songs, his voice haunts her when the music stops. When a family tragedy forces her to return home to Montana, she plans to leave the second she's paid her respects. But seeing Graham again turns her life upside down. As a boy, he wasn't able to make her stay. As a man, he might be her future. If they can mend their rifts and find solace in the refrains.
This comprehensive reassessment of the carmina maiora of the fourth-century poet Claudian contributes to the growing trend to recognize that Late Antique poets should be approached as just that: poets. Its methodology is developed from that of Michael Roberts' seminal The Jeweled Style. It analyzes Claudian's poetics and use of story telling to argue that the creation of a story world in which Stilicho, his patron, becomes an epic hero, and the barbarians are giants threatening both the borders of Rome and the order of the very universe is designed to convince his audience of a world-view in which it is only the Roman general who stands between them and cosmic chaos. The book also argues that Claudian uses the same techniques to promote the message that Honorius, young hero though he may seem, is not yet fit to rule, and that Stilicho's rightful position remains as his regent.

The place of music in Ranciere's thought has long been underestimated or unrecognised. This volume responds to this absence with a collection of 15 essays by scholars from a variety of music- and sound-related fields, including an Afterword by Ranciere on the role of music in his thought and writing. The essays engage closely with Ranciere's existing commentary on music and its relationship to other arts in the aesthetic regime, revealed through detailed case studies around music, sound and listening. Ranciere's thought is explored along a number of music-historical trajectories, including Italian and German opera, Romantic and modernist music, Latin American and South African music, jazz, and contemporary popular music. Ranciere's work is also set creatively in dialogue with other key contemporary thinkers including Adorno, Althusser, Badiou and Deleuze.
An expansion of teaching materials created for students at the Mannes College in New York, this book draws on the author's years of experience as teacher, composer, writer, lecturer and listener. "Dancing with the Muses" deals with the phenomenon of of living linear motion in music. It teaches: melody and melodic coherence; the elements and basis of melody in interval, scale and time; the art of combining lines in a musical fabric; and the basic nature of harmony. The book teaches concepts by means of the stories from history which gave rise to them. The historical approach makes the material more vividly meaningful and memorable. It answers the questions: Where do these concepts come from? How did they come to be? Why are they what they are? Why are they worth knowing? Designed for efficiency, the book is a concise, essentialized presentation, an overview of the fundamentals of the field rather than an encyclopedia of detail. In contrast with more academic, technical books, "Dancing with the Muses" considers music as an expressive human art form. The book continually addresses not only the definition of the musical elements, but also their emotional effect. Find out why the human brain requires the diatonic scale as the basis of musical intelligibility. Delve into the controversy over the "primacy of melody" versus the "primacy of harmony"--Which comes first? Hear the dramatic story of the heretical monk who invented musical staff notation and solfege singing. Learn what makes the notes of a melody fit together-and where the very concept of melodic "fitting together" comes from. Meet the great innovators in the history of our knowledge about music, including Pythagoras, Zarlino & Helmholtz. * * * Composer M. Zachary Johnson's music has been described as "the first serious Romantic music to be produced by a composer who is part, not of the 19th-century past, but of the 21st-century future." Reviewing his music, About.com music guide Aaron Green wrote: "If this is the direction classical music is heading, well, I'd say the future will be full of wonderful music." Johnson's saxophone compositions--including Serenade, Scherzo, Adagio, Grand Sonata--are rapidly becoming part of the instrument's standard repertoire. They are played regularly in recitals throughout the world. Having composed extensively for large instrumental ensemble, Johnson is expanding into musical theater/opera.
