Generation after generation, pianists and aficionados have studied Beethoven's piano sonatas. To each of them, the 'New Testament' of piano literature poses a challenge. Jan Marisse Huizing supports the search for the own 'tone'. In his new study book, he deals with the performance practice and history of piano manufacturing as well as Beethoven's own piano playing. In addition, he follows the path from the original manuscript to the modern urtext edition. This book is completed by quotes from piano methods and renowned pianists as well as by a detailed, annotated discography. Apart from his international concert activities, Jan Marisse Huizing was professor of piano at the Amsterdam Conservatoire. He was also the author of numerous publications, among them the guidebook 'Frédéric Chopin: Die Etüden' (Schott Music).

Music-making – how does it work? How are the human body and mind capable to accomplish such a feat? 'Die Kunst des Musizierens' not only explains the processes within the brain, nervous system and locomotor system on which music-making is based, but also deals with their practical application: Based on medical findings, musicians are given information on how to overcome unnecessary limitations, release fears and improve their practising. Together with the renowned music physiologist Prof. Eckart Altenmüller, Renate Klöppel has now brought this standard work up to date, based on the latest research.

Studies play an important role in musical instrument training. Gerhard Mantel's new edition 'Etüden üben' [Practising studies] (3 volumes) complements his previous successful book 'Cello üben' (ED 8714). The basics of cello technique are worked on in selected studies, with the focus being not only on the ability to learn a technically and musically oriented text within a reasonable time but also on the solution of certain problems typical of the cello. Vol. 1 covers aspects ranging from the orientation on the fingerboard via changes of position, vibrato and trills to changes of strings and double stops. Vol. 2 deals with fingerings, whole-bow stroke, dynamics, articulation and types of bowing, among others. The final volume contains studies on legato, arpeggios, chords, martellato, staccato, spiccato and changes of rhythm. The accompanying volume of commentaries (for all three volumes) describes in detail the methodological practising processes.

- New insights into the life of the great man of the theatre - With previously unpublished photos and first complete list of roles - By the author of the acclaimed double portrait of the Mendelssohn siblings

- The new standard handbook for singers, actors and narrators - Anatomy, physiology, acoustics and psychology, as well as voice types, registers and health maintenance - Contributors are internationally renowned experts from the fields of vocal medicine, voice science, voice pedagogy and singing practice

No one had been as present in the German theatre scene for epochs and across systems as had the actor and director Gustaf Gründgens (1899–1963). Even 50 years after his death, the artist polarises not only because of his controversial role in the Third Reich. The large number of academic studies, novels and plays dealing with him and his life, shows the importance of Gustaf Gründgens. What makes the biography of the Gründgens expert Thomas Blubacher stand out among these works is the plethora of new biographical details which the theatre scholar has discovered due to his meticulous research and numerous talks with contemporaries. His lively portrait of the legendary GG thus is the portrait of an astonishingly insecure, utterly lone man despairing of himself. Blubacher shows what often falls into oblivion: Gustaf Gründgens is far more than Mephisto, his most famous role. Dr. Thomas Blubacher, born in 1967, is theatre scholar, director and author. His biography of the siblings Eleonora and Francesco von Mendelssohn (Henschel 2008) was a great success. »The most important actor of my life« Marcel Reich-Ranicki
