Vintage Feminism: classic feminist texts in short form WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY NATALIE HAYNES When this book was first published in 1949 it was to outrage and scandal. Never before had the case for female liberty been so forcefully and successfully argued. De Beauvoir’s belief that ‘One is not born, but rather becomes, a woman’ switched on light bulbs in the heads of a generation of women and began a fight for greater equality and economic independence. These pages contain the key passages of the book that changed perceptions of women forever. TRANSLATED BY CONSTANCE BORDE AND SHEILA MALOVANY-CHEVALLIER ANNOTATED AND INTRODUCED BY MARTINE REID

Composition - Arrangements - Improvisation Whenever I talk to my students about harmony I have noticed that they panic a bit, generally they seem to have the wrong idea that it is something complex and boring which will take time from them to learn in their practice.As a matter of fact if you can count up to twelve you will be able to learn harmony beside taking advantage of the great benefits that it will provide you in your growth as a musician.During my student years as I began to understand what I was playing, my relationship with music changed dramatically. At that moment I was able to listen to music better, improvising with a better criterion and I started to interact with other musicians.In 'Modern Harmony Step By Step' I have aimed to convey the concepts which have helped me to grow as a musician so much , in an organized and simply way like the relationship between chords and scales, the keys, the tensions etc.This book is divided into five chapters which had been organised in such a way that you will be able to progress step by step as if you were taking a course.From basic beginners level up to really advanced knoledge.You will find the formation and use of the major and minor scale, modal and artificial scale, the arpeggio, diatonic and non diatonic chords and their corresponding tensions. You will have access to the tools that are required for modern music composition and analyses, and also the application of all these resources on improvisation.Hundreds of examples are provided to illustrate the concepts explained in each point, allowing you to transfer them from the theory to your instrument.The five chapters are: Basic concepts: starting from scratch with the basic elements. Major key: scales, flat and sharp notes, diatonic and non diatonic chords (triads, 7th chords and tensions 9, 11 and 13) Minor key: natural minor scale, minor harmonic scale, melodic scale. Their chords and combinations. Scales and more scales: all the rest of the scales and its use in the improvisation: modals, artificials, relatives, etc. Harmony and melody: composition and arrangements, harmonic and melodic analysis, modal harmony, modal interchange, form, harmonizacion and reharmonization of melodies, etc. Download the free version to read the complete index and first pages.

A magical short novel that weaves together two stories, two couples, two different times, and two grand passions In one of the narratives that comprise this superb new novel from Carlos Fuentes, we are introduced to Gabriel Atlan-Ferrara, a fabled orchestral conductor, and his great love Inez Prada, a renowned singer. In the other, Fuentes memorably delineates the very first encounter in human history between a man and a woman. In one, the intense drama of Berlioz's music for The Damnation of Faust informs the action; in the other, we watch as a slowly emergent love shapes the nature and character of the two protagonists. A beautiful crystal seal -- the meaning of which is a mystery that obsesses Atlan-Ferrara, who owns it -- unites these two narratives; the magical seal allows one to read unknown languages and hear impossible music, and it is the symbol of a shared love. The duality of Carlos Fuentes's brilliant new novel mirrors two eras, one in the deepest remote time and one in a time to come, but the passions evoked in both, reflected against each other like two sides of a crystal seal, break the limits of time and space and unite in one story. And, like the light refracted through the seal, it begins in prehistory and spirals out into infinity . . . In Inez, we find Carlos Fuentes at the height of his magical and realist powers. This profound and beautiful work confirms his standing as Mexico's pre-eminent novelist.
