DescriptionEnthusiastic response from music educators and teachers greeted the publication in 1968 of the first volume in the CLASSICS TO MODERNS series. Since then, as additional titles were added, the series has won widespread praise and universal acceptance by both teachers and students as a valuable and unique library of piano materials. All those interested in the literature for the piano have been well served by Denes Agay´s intelligent compilations and by his jusicious editing. The series set a new high standard for piano teaching materials and is distinghished by an editorial approach that remains faithful to the composer´s intentions. These 142 pieces by the masters of piano literature date from the second half of the 17th century to the present daySonglistA Farewell [Purcell, Henry]A Regal Dance [Turk, Daniel Gottlob]Adagio [Mozart, Wolfgang Amadeus]Air [Purcell, Henry]Allegretto [Bach, Carl Philipp Emanuel]Allegro [Mozart, Wolfgang Amadeus]An Old Romance [Heller, Stephen]Andante [Mozart, Wolfgang Amadeus]Andantino [Haydn, Joseph]Andantino [Schubert, Franz]Arabesque [Burgmuller, Friedrich]Bagatelle [Beethoven, Ludwig Van]Bagatelle [Hummel, Johann Nepomuk]Bouree [Telemann, Georg Philip]Burleske [Mozart, Leopold]Capriccio Italienne Op.45 [Tchaikovsky, Pytor Ilyich]Carefree [Turk, Daniel Gottlob]Carnaval [Couperin, Francois]Chit-chat [Kabalevsky, Dmitri]Chromatic Polka [Kohler, Louis]Circle Dance [Villa-lobos, Heitor]Clock, The [Kullak, Theodor]Constante [Villa-lobos, Heitor]Cradle Song [Kullak, Theodor]Dance Intermezzo [Bertini, Henri]Dance With Me [Volkmann, Robert]Ecossaise [Weber, Carl Maria Von]Ecossaise In G [Beethoven, Ludwig Van]Evening In The Meadow [Rebikoff, Vladimir]Evening Song [Turk, Daniel Gottlob]Fairy Tale [Kabalevsky, Dmitri]First Dance [Kabalevsky, Dmitri]Four Landlers [Schubert, Franz]Four Short Canons [Kunz, Konrad M.]Fugue In Classic Style [Miaskovsky, Nicolas]Gavotte [Turk, Daniel Gottlob]Gavotte And Variation [Händel, Georg Friedrich]Gavotte En Forma Rondo [Dandrieu, Jean Francois]German Dance [Beethoven, Ludwig Van]German Song [Tchaikovsky, Peter Ilyich]Humming [Kabalevsky, Dmitri]Hunters, The [Turk, Daniel Gottlob]Hunting Song (Album For The Young) [Schumann, Robert]In The Country [Kabalevsky, Dmitri]La Caroline [Bach, Carl Philipp Emanuel]Le Petit-rien (The Trifles) [Couperin, Francois]Little March [Kabalevsky, Dmitri]Little Prelude In C [Bach, Johann Sebastian]Little Scherzo [Bach, Carl Philip Emmanuel]Little Suite [Cornelius, Gurlitt]Lullaby [Kirnberger, Johann Philipp]March [Bach, Johann Sebastian]Melody [Khatchaturian, Aram]Melody [Schumann, Robert]Miniature Rondo [Turk, Daniel Gottlob]Minuet (Dm) [Bach, Johann Sebastian]Minuet (Gm) [Bach, Johann Sebastian]Minuet [Bach, Carl Philip Emmanuel]Minuet [Mozart, Leopold]Minuet [Mozart, Wolfgang Amadeus]Minuet [Purcell, Henry]Minuet [Telemann, Georg Philipp]Minuet In G [Bach, Johann Sebastian]Morning Prayer [Tchaikovsky, Pyotr Ilyich]Musette (G) [Bach, Johann Sebastian]Mussette (D) [Bach, Johann Sebastian]Old French Song [Tchaikovsky, Pyotr Ilyich]On Tiptoes [Bertini, Henri]Once Upon A Time [Volkmann, Robert]Oriental Dance Op.2 No.5 [Rebikov, Vladimir]Over Hill And Dale [Volkmann, Robert]Pastorale [Burgmuller, Friedrich]Peasant Song [Mendelssohn, Felix]Playing Soldiers [Rebikoff, Vladimir]Polonaise [Bach, Johann Sebastian]Polonaise [Mozart, Wolfgang Amadeus]Prelude [Kabalevsky, Dmitri]Presto [Mozart, Wolfgang Amadeus]Promenade [Gretchaninov, Alexander]Puppet´s Complaint [Franck, Cesar]Regal Dance, A [Turk, Daniel Gottlob]Reverie [Tchaikovsky, Pyotr Ilyich]Ride, Ride [Kabalevsky, Dmitri]Rondino [Rameau, Jean Philippe]Rondo In C [Mozart, Wolfgang Amadeus]Russian Folk Song [Beethoven, Ludwing Van]Sarabande [Corelli, Arcangelo]Scherzo [Haydn, Joseph]Scherzo [Kabalevsky, Dmitri]Serenade [Turk, Daniel Gottlob]Seven German Dances [Haydn, Joseph]Six Miniatures [Bartok, Bela]Soldier´s March (Soldatenmarsch) Op.68 No.2 (Album For The Young) [Schumann, Robert]Sonatina [Schmitt, Jakob]Sonatina In C [Andre, Anton]Sonatina In C [Clementi, Muzio]Sonatina In G [Schmitt, Jakob]Song From The Creuse [Franck, Cesar]Song Of The Hussars [Kohler, Louis]Tarantella [Prokofiev, Sergei]Tender Moments [Gretchaninoff, Alexander]The Enchanted Garden [Volkman, Robert]The Reaper´s Song Op.68 No.18 [Schumann, Robert]The Sick Doll [Tchaikovsky, Pyotr Ilyich]The Wild Horseman Op.68 No.8 (Album For The Young) [Schumann, Robert]Three Country Dances...
Marianne Williamson live in seminar leads the audience (and the listener) through a series of exercises and insights designed to foster emotional growth and maturity. Williamson´s point that we must acknowledge past pain, but then move on, rather than dwelling on old hurts, is especially helpful. Williamson´s humor is evident; it´s as if one is having a chat with a wise and trusted friend rather than being lectured by a guru. Her self-help message is laced with wisdom and plain common sense, which is, of course, all too uncommon in our world. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Marianne Williamson.

With amazing insight, Anton Chekhov wrote of the lives of the Russian common man as well as the landowner. He established the style of the modern short story and influenced many great writers, including George Bernard Shaw, James Joyce, Ernest Hemingway, Katherine Mansfield, and Virginia Woolf. Presented here are eleven of Chekhov´s best works. In ´´The Black Monk´´, a man blissfully chats with the vision of a wise, mysterious monk, and in ´´The Kiss´´, an awkward young soldier is kissed by mistake. The remaining nine stories (´´A Misfortune´´, ´´An Artist´s Story´´, ´´Not Wanted´´, ´´Expensive Lessons´´, ´´The Head of the Family´´, ´´Mire´´, ´´Anyuta´´, ´´The Helpmate´´, and ´´The Trousseau´´) are equally enchanting. 1.

When Deirdre Fishel and Diana Holtzberg began work on their documentary Still Doing It, they knew they were catching a wave. The women of the baby-boom generation who had been so outspoken about sexuality and freedom were about to turn sixty, yet no one was talking about the revolution in aging. Nor was anyone letting on about the big dark secret that women born before the boomers, even way before, were a hell of a lot more vital than the images we were getting, and many were still having sex-and loving it! In Still Doing It, Fishel, Holtzberg, and the incredible women in their documentary broke the silence. Now they are back, with a stimulating and eye-opening book that offers a deeper look at women who break every stereotype we have about sex and intimacy. These women are dynamic, confident, opinionated, and wise. They´re also having the kind of intense sexual experiences and fantasies we never associate with grandmothers. You´ll meet Betty, who met her live-in boyfriend in an online chat room when she was sixty-nine and he was twenty-two; Joani, age seventy, who shares her boyfriend with another woman; and Frances, who encountered the intellectual and sexual love of her life at eighty. Today´s women are living longer, healthier lives, and their appetite for sex and adventure isn´t fading. Aware of their mortality, they understand just how precious life really is, and are willing to take risks to go after what they want. Challenging stereotypes about older women, Still Doing It lets everyone know that sex and adventure do not need to end when you hit sixty (or seventy...or ninety!). In fact, the good stuff is often just beginning. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kate Zane. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/012013/bk_adbl_012013_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
From the pink ribbons to the chat rooms to the web sites that sell related accessories and stuffed animals, breast cancer has morphed from a disease into an experience. And at every step of the way, society tells women that this experience can teach them profound lessons, transform them into wiser, more insightful people, and maybe even give them a peek at the meaning of life.But what if it doesn´t?Five Lessons I Didn´t Learn from Breast Cancer is Shelley Lewis´ thoroughly modern, slightly contrarian take on ´´doing´´ breast cancer in an epiphany-free zone, where the goal is simply to get through it and get the hell back to your life.Proving chemotherapy can eradicate everything except a sense of humor. Lewis shares her five strategies for coping, and then reveals the real, not-so-meaningful insights learned from breast cancer, including ´´If you honestly think breast cancer is a gift, you can´t come to my birthday´´ and ´´Lie to yourself (it´s sooo helpful)´´.A wonderful interweaving of the author´s personal story, interviews with breast cancer survivors, and a sharp-eyed journalist´s look at the breast cancer ´´community´´, Five Lessons is full of unconventional wisdom, unexpected advice, and hilarious observations about life inside the pink bubble. 1.
