Deryck Lynham "The Chevalier Noverre, Father of Modern Ballet"

3238.00 руб

The name of Jean Georges Noverre stands forth in bold relief agains the background of the history of the art of ballet. His Lettres sur la Danse have been translated into almost every European language and yet, although the idea that he was largely responsible for creating the ballet d'action, or dramatic ballet, has gained general acceptance and his name is one of the most frequently quoted in the literature of the dance, scant light has been shed on his life and work. This biography, first published in 1950, was then and remains now the only major study of him. He was born in Paris on April 29th, 1727, and was destined to a military career and given a liberal education, but he showed little aptitude for tactical exercises or army discipline and was nightly to be found haunting the theatres of Paris, where he was fired with the ambition to become a dancer. By 1743 he was a dancer at the Paris Opera Comique, and he produced his first ballet there in 1749. He foresaw and advocated most...

3038.00 руб

Prince Serge Wolkonsky (1860 - 1937) was an influential Russian theatrical worker, one of the first Russian proponents of eurhythmics, pupil and friend of Emile Jaques-Dalcroze, and creator of an original system of actor's training that included both expressive gesture and expressive speech.In 1899 Wolkonsky became Director of the Imperial Theatres, the post for which he is most remembered. Although he held the position only until 1902, he achieved a great deal; Serge Diaghilev was his immediate assistant, and Wolkonsky entrusted him with the publication of the Annual of the Imperial Theatres in 1900. New names appeared in the theaters, such as painters Alexandre Benois, Konstantin Somov, and Leon Bakst. In this first part of his two-volume reminiscences he discusses his childhood and youth, his recollections of the Russian and German theatre, opera, and his travels in Europe and America.


Lydia Kyasht "Romantic Recollections"

2388.00 руб

The Russian ballerina Lydia Kyasht was very much a free spirit. A childhood friend of her fellow ballerina Tamara Karsavina, she appears frequently in the early pages of the latter's autobiography, usually as chief mischief-maker, and her autobiography reflects that aspect of her personality. She gives her impressions and experiences of European life and society, especially of the Russian Court before the revolution, but her book is as much about the author's romantic adventures as it is about her dazzling career as a dancer - "I believe it is a good thing for a woman to have a lover", she writes, a bold sentiment for 1929 when her book was first published. Kyasht was born in 1885. She studied at the St Petersburg Imperial Ballet School with Pavel Gerdt and joined the Maryinsky Theatre in 1902, becoming second dancer in 1905 and first dancer in 1908. She was also a soloist with the Bolshoi (1903-4) and performed in various concert recitals. In 1908 she went to London where she...

If you dare to dare by standing strong for what you believe to be right then be prepared to have the whole armoury employed against you in the name of desperate NHS cover up.

J Telfer "Christopher's Story Part II"

2300.00 руб

Description Christopher's Story II has been written after the success of the original paperback, published in the hope of raising awareness of (Kanner's) autism and severe challenging behaviour. It continues the Telfer family's story of love and determination to remain together as opposed to place their son in residential care.

In Book II it becomes clear that her remarkable work and writing has changed the views of many but that the road towards fair and unprejudiced services and opportunities for all is far from over. Luckily it also becomes clear that she, her family, and her son, have the determination to continue walking this road. Book Extract INTRODUCTION The autistic spectrum has held much fascination since...

Morton Gabriel White "A Philosopher's Story"

6313.00 руб

"Although a great many memoirs are being published these days, this autobiography by Morton White has special significance because professional philosophers seldom write their memoirs and, when they do, they rarely produce books as engaging as this one. . . . Indeed, White's autobiography should attract more attention among the educated public than any book written by an American philosopher in many years."--Peter H. Hare, SUNY Distinguished Service Professor of Philosophy and Editor, Transactions of the C. S. Peirce Society: A Quarterly Journal in American Philosophy. Morton White is Professor Emeritus at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey. Among his many well-known books are Social Thought in America (Viking, 1948), Foundations of Historical Knowledge (Harper & Row, 1965), Science and Sentiment in America (Oxford, 1972), and The Question of Free Will (Princeton, 1993).

A European nobleman in the stormy years of World War II and the Hungarian Revolution persevered to become a prominent equestrian. During the Soviet occupation, de Kunffy finds a life-saving island of tranquility in the ancient art of classical horsemanship. Fascinating accounts of his great mentors, 'professor' horses and remarkable characters are vividly described against an uncertain historical landscape.

Tragic at times, funny at others, this true-life tale of travel through a rugged social landscape is graced with equestrian salvation.


Norbert Weinberg "Courage of the Spirit"

1813.00 руб

Courage of the Spirit portrays the spiritual struggle of one man during the first half of the twentieth century-the author's father, Rabbi Dr. William Weinberg, who survived Nazi and communist tyranny to become the first State Rabbi of the community of Holocaust survivors in the German State of Hesse. Rabbi Weinberg's journey spanned thousands of physical miles by freight train and on foot, from cosmopolitan Vienna and Berlin to Stalingrad and central Asia as he and his brother Benjamin kept a step ahead of the Nazi armies. The book spans the mental and emotional journey from the medieval shtetl and the great empires to the weak democracies and totalitarian regimes that followed, and finally, to freedom. Courage of the Spirit reconstructs these events from conversations with the author's father and his uncle, from family notes, and from historical documentation.
