This book explores the interactions between science and music in the late nineteenth- and early twentieth century. It examines and evaluates the work of Hermann von Helmholtz, Max Planck, Shohé Tanaka, and Adriaan Fokker, leading physicists and physiologists who were committed to understanding crucial aesthetic components of the art of music, including the standardization of pitch and the implementation of various types of intonations. With a mixture of physics, physiology, and aesthetics, author Erwin Hiebert addresses throughout the book how just intonation came to intersect with the history of keyboard instruments and exert an influence on the development of Western music. He begins with the work of Hermann von Helmholtz, a leading nineteenth-century physicist and physiologist who not only made important contributions in vision, optics, electrodynamics and thermodynamics, but also helped advanced the field of music theory as well. The author traces the Helmholtzian trends of thought that become inherently more complex by reaching beyond the sciences to perform a bridge with aesthetics and the diverse ways in which the human mind interprets or is taught, in different cultures, to interpret and understand music. Next, the author explores the works of other key physicists and physiologists who were influenced by Helmholtz and added to his legacy. He examines Japanese music theory student Shohé Tanaka, who sought to design a harmonium that was not based on equal temperament but rather on just intonation. Dutch physicist Adriaan Daniel Fokker, who arranged for organs to be built based on 31-tones per octave, orchestrated concerts for these new instruments and even attempted to compose microtonal music, or music whose tonality is based on intervals smaller than the typical twelve semitones of Western music.

The forty composers included in Volume 7 of "Women Composers: Music Through the Ages: Vocal Music" were born between 1800 and 1899. Some are also represented in the series Volume 6 (Keyboard Music) and Volume 8 (Large and Small Instrumental Ensembles). These works, for solo voice and piano, for voice and instruments, and scenes from three operas, are by women from nine countries: Twelve from the United States (Bauer, Beach, Freer, Hier, Jessye, M.R. Lang, Moore, Price, Rogers, Salter, Strickland and Urner) Nine from France (L. Boulanger, N. Boulanger, Grandval, Heritte-Viardot, Malibran, Puget, Viardot, Vieu and White) Six from England (Allitsen, Carmichael, Clarke, del Riego, Lehmann and Prescott); six from Germany (Bronsart, Hensel, Kinkel, J. Lang, Schumann and Teichmuller) Three from the Netherlands (Cramer, Dijk and Rennes) One each from Austria (Mahler), Canada (Harrison), Italy (Giuranna) and Ireland (Maddison) Those who were of musical families include the sisters Lili and Nadia Boulanger; sisters Maria Malibran (de Beriot) and Pauline Viardot, and Pauline's daughter Louise Heritte-Viardot; Eleanor Everest Freer, Barbara Giuranna, Fanny Hensel (Mendelssohn), Josephine Lang, Margaret Ruthven Lang, Liza Lehmann, Alma Mahler, Loಧ sa Puget, Clara Kathleen Rogers, Mary Turner Salter, and Clara Schumann. Previously unpublished music in the volume includes Lili Boulanger's choral music, the opera scenes of Barbara Giuranna, and the songs of Catherine Urner. Two African-American composers are included: Eva A. Jessye and Florence Price. This volume contains examples of music in the many styles also practiced by their male contemporaries: the simple French romance (Malibran, Puget, Vieu); the German lied (Bronsart, Hensel, Josephine Lang, Schumann, Teichmuller); music from the Second New England School (Rogers); and music espousing Romanticism (Beach) and post-Romanticism (Cramer). There is impressionistic music (Bauer, the Boulangers, M.R. Lang, Maddison); models of the American Art Song (Bauer, Price, Urner), dialect songs (Hier, Strickland); religious and patriotic songs (Allitsen, Dijk), opera (Giuranna, Grandval, Moore), and musical comedy (Lehmann). Some of these songs became best sellers because famous singers of the 19th and 20th centuries promoted them in performance.

Jazz stories have been entwined with cinema since the inception of jazz film genre in the 1920s, giving us origin tales and biopics, spectacles and low-budget quickies, comedies, musicals, and dramas, and stories of improvisers and composers at work. And the jazz film has seen a resurgence in recent years--from biopics like Miles Ahead and HBO's Bessie, to dramas Whiplash and La La Land. In Play the Way You Feel, author and jazz critic Kevin Whitehead offers a comprehensive guide to these films and other media from the perspective of the music itself. Spanning 93 years of film history, the book looks closely at movies, cartoons, and a few TV shows that tell jazz stories, from early talkies to modern times, with an eye to narrative conventions and common story points. Examining the ways historical films have painted a clear picture of the past or overtly distorted history, Play the Way You Feel serves up capsule discussions of sundry topics including Duke Ellington's social life at the Cotton Club, avant-garde musical practices in 1930s vaudeville, and Martin Scorsese's improvisatory method on the set of New York, New York. Throughout the book, Whitehead brings the same analytical bent and concise, witty language listeners know from his jazz segments on NPR's Fresh Air with Terry Gross. He investigates well-known songs, traces the development of the stock jazz film ending, and offers fresh, often revisionist takes on works by such directors as Howard Hawks, John Cassavetes, Shirley Clarke, Francis Ford Coppola, Clint Eastwood, Spike Lee, Robert Altman, Woody Allen and Damien Chazelle. In all, Play the Way You Feel is a feast for film-genre fanatics and movie-watching jazz enthusiasts.
