  • The Inner Nature of Music and the Experience of Tone

    Selected Lectures"A tone is at the foundation of everything in the physical world." This is one of many astonishing statements made by Rudolf Steiner in this collection of seven lectures on the inner realities of music. These lectures are an unusual treasure, since they are the only two groups of lectures that Steiner gave primarily on music, other than the lecture cycle for the tone eurythmy course, Eurythmy as Visible Music. In the first group of three lectures, given in 1906, Steiner explains why music affects the human soul so powerfully. Music has always held a special position among the arts because it is the only art form whose archetype, or source, lies not in the physical world, as with architecture, sculpture, and painting, but purely in the spiritual world-the soul's true home. Music thus directly expresses through tones the innermost essence of the cosmos, and our sense of well-being when we hear music comes from a recognition of our soul's experience in the spiritual world. In the remaining lectures, given in 1922 and 1923, Steiner discusses our experience of musical intervals and shows how it has undergone profound changes during the course of evolution.

  • Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, Book 1

    "Turning the envelope over, his hand trembling, Harry saw a purple wax seal bearing a coat of arms; a lion, an eagle, a badger and a snake surrounding a large letter 'H'." Harry Potter has never even heard of Hogwarts when the letters start dropping on the doormat at number four, Privet Drive. Addressed in green ink on yellowish parchment with a purple seal, they are swiftly confiscated by his grisly aunt and uncle. Then, on Harry's eleventh birthday, a great beetle-eyed giant of a man called Rubeus Hagrid bursts in with some astonishing news: Harry Potter is a wizard, and he has a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. An incredible adventure is about to begin!

  • The Classical Music Experience: Discover the Music of the World's Greatest Composers

    The Ultimate Listener's Guide!There are many books about classical music, but none capture the incredible range of musical styles and sounds as accessibly or in as compelling a way as The Classical Music Experience. The Classical Music Experience tells the stories of forty-two of the world's most celebrated composers, ranging from Bach, Handel, Mozart and Beethoven to Mahler, Tchaikovsky, Gershwin and Bernstein. It weaves five hundred years of history and music into a rich tapestry of sound and story unlike any other book of its kind. Read about the composers' lives and works, their passions and inspirations, and then listen to excerpts of their music on the accompanying CDs. In addition to the pieces covered in the book, Dr. Julius H. Jacobson gives recommendations of further works you may wish to listen to and explore on your own. This is a volume to cherish and to return to again and again as you build your own classical music library and venture out to the symphony hall. "Every beginner needs a place to begin. For a music lover, what better place to discover more about music than between the pages of another music lover's book? The Classical Music Experience makes it easy by taking you through the history of classical music composer by composer."--Adam Duritz, lead singer, Co...
