Dvorák, AntonínSerenade for String Orchestra E major op. 22Dvorák’s ´´Serenade in E major” for string orchestra is one of his most popular and frequently played works. It was written in the spring of 1875, when he had just experienced his first successes at the conductor’s podium and had received a state arts scholarship. The score and parts were published by Bote & Bock, Berlin, in 1879.This Urtext edition is based on the composer’s autograph score. It corrects mistakes found in the first edition and so, for the first time, the editor incorporates omitted passages from the autograph, marking them with ´´Vi-de”. This reconstruction makes it possible to clarify the piece’s structure. The author of the Foreword, Katerina Nová, is head of the Dvorák Museum in Prague.• Detailed Foreword by Katerina Nová (Cz/Eng/Ger) and Critical Commentary by the editor (Eng)• Including ´´Vi-de” passages from the autograph scoreEdition no.: BA 10423ISMN: 9790260107472Editor: Tait, RobinLanguage(s) of text: Czech, English, GermanProduct format: Score, Urtext editionIncludes the following individual parts: String orchestraBinding: PaperbackPages / Format: XIII, 61 S. - 31,0 x 24,3 cm
Piano Sonata D major K. 284 (205b)Editor: Ernst HerttrichFingering: Hans-Martin TheopoldThe Sonata in D major is the last of the Six Sonatas K. 279-284 that Mozart had in his luggage when he set off for Paris in September 1777. He had already successfully performed this music in Munich, Augsburg and Mannheim, a fact he proudly told his father back at home. He gave the works particularly rich dynamic markings and also found unusual solutions concerning their formal aspect, for instance having a slow Rondeau en Polonaise as the middle movement of the Sonata in D major. The six sonatas, which were previously only published together in the complete volumes (HN 1 and 3), are now all available as single editions with new prefaces.Mozart dedicated this Sonata to a Freiherr Thaddäus von Dürnitz - which is why it has often been called the Dürnitz-Sonata. It is undoubtedly the best, the most brilliant and the most technically demanding of these six early Sonatas. Understandably, Mozart retained a special affection for it and continued to perform it himself. It was this Sonata of which he said that it sounded incomparable on Stein´s new fortepianos.FIRST MOVEMENT A first version of the beginning of the first movement, written on one and a half pages, was cancelled by Mozart. On the same page, he started anew to write the final version underneath. The thematic material of this opening movement (and to a lesser degree also that of the following movements) is laid out on a more ample, nearly orchestral scale, a departure from the intimacy of the early sonatas. The tremolo effect in measures 13-16 and the unison announcements of the first subject read very much like a piano reduction of an orchestral tutti. The second subject, a supple melodic line, unaccompanied in its opening bar, incorporates a descending chain of first inversions a favourite harmonic formula of the baroque and classical periods. (There are analogous passages in the subsidiary themes in Gluck´s overture Iphigénie en Tauride and the first movements of J. S. Bach´s Italian Concert). This functions as a solo passage in contrast to the ensuing tutti entries in m.30. The development moves through a circle of minor keys before the recapitulation begins in measure 72.SECOND MOVEMENT Mozart called the second movement a Rondeau en Polonaise, so it is a dance. The opening four measures from a kind of dialogue (like the theme of the first movement of the preceding G major Sonata), and Mozart subjects them to felicitous counter-statement is heightened by Mozart´s meticulous dynamic markings.THIRD MOVEMENT The last movement of the Sonata is a pianistically rewarding, cheerful set of variations, which, up to the adagio variation, has the character of a gavotte. It shows Mozart´s special gift for writing variations at its most brilliant. The superficial impression of a diffuse form does not stand up to a closer inspection: it would not be at all easy to omit one of the twelve variations, or to add an extra one. The adagio variation is on special interest to Mozart scholars, for it gives us some insights into his concept of impromptu ornamentation. The autograph is only modestly ornamented, and Mozart presumably embellished it in performance as his fancy dictated. But a richly ornamented version survived in the first edition, published during Mozart´s lifetime, and undoubtedly this embellished version is Mozart´s own work. Who else could embellish in such an ingenious way? It illuminates Mozart´s ideas on ornamentation in general and in particular.Paul and Eva-Badura-Skoda

There is no simple strategic method for dealing with the multidimensional nature of digital change. Even the sharpest leaders can become disoriented as change builds on change, leaving almost nothing certain. Yet to stand still is to fail. Enterprises and leaders must remaster themselves to succeed. Leaders must identify the key macro forces then lead their organizations at three distinct levels: industry, enterprise, and self. By doing this they can not only survive but clean up. Digital to the Core makes the case that all business leaders must understand the impact the digital revolution will continue to play in their industries, companies, and leadership styles and practices. Drawing on interviews with over 30 top C-level executives in some of the world´s most powerful companies and government organizations, including GE, Ford, Tory Burch, Babolat, McDonald´s, Publicis, and UK Government Digital Service, this audiobook delivers practical insights from those on the front lines of major digital upheaval. The authors incorporate Gartner´s annual CIO and CEO global survey research and apply the deep knowledge and qualitative insights they have acquired as practitioners, management researchers, and advisors over decades in the business. Above all else, Raskino and Waller want companies and their top leaders to understand the full impact of digital change and integrate it at the cores of their businesses.

Handel called Britain ´the ringing isle´ because when he moved to London, he heard bells ringing everywhere: great bells in church towers, and handbells in some of the first private houses he visited. The sound of people ´ringing the changes´ is a peculiarly British sound of celebration, and it seems a good starting point for a piece celebrating British musical life. Within The Ringing Isle, Dove incorporates some traditional change-ringing patterns, from ´Grandsire Doubles´, ´Oxford Treble Bob Minor´ and his own version of ´Plain Bob Major´. Handel´s phrase also conjures up an image of a magical island, and so this is how Dove envisaged how it must have been to approach Britain from an ocean voyage.
