Albanian Traditional Music: An Introduction, with Sheet Music and Lyrics for 48 Songs

McFarland, 10 janv. 2014 - 213 pages
For most musicians and musicologists in the West, traditional Albanian music remains an obscure subject, even though Albania has produced a monumental cultural and corresponding musical heritage. This book examines the distinct musical culture of southeastern Europe, both monophonic and polyphonic, by delineating its four main musical dialects: Gheg, Tosk, Lab and Urban. The origins, fundamental features, musical styles and genres of the four dialects are discussed. Additional topics covered include an historical and demographic analysis of Albania, the history of Albanian ethnomusicology and the various classifications in Albanian music. Relying heavily on field research and recordings, this text introduces traditional Albanian music to both ethnomusicologists and curious readers.

This book is definitely intended for music scholars, and as such was pretty difficult going for me. It is well bound and well-presented, and contains sheet music and detailed information. Consulter l'avis complet

I gave this book to a friend, who absolutely loved it but wished for an accompanying CD. I don't know much about Albanian music, but this seemed like an excellent introduction. Consulter l'avis complet
