Dictionnaire de la lutherie et de l'archèterie by Eric Lehmann

Book description
Dans ce livre, préfacé par Gisèle Coupert, Bernard Millant et Etienne Vatelot, Eric Lehmann rassemble tous les termes précis du vocabulaire professionnel appliqué aux bois, gestes, instruments, outils, pièces, colorants, décoration, vernis... dans les domaines de la lutherie et de l’archèterie. Ce livre est le fruit d’un patient travail de recherches et de collectes auprès des artisans concernés, des interprètes, dans les ouvrages spécialisés... 850 termes y sont répertoriés et définis. Plus de 60 illustrations l'enrichissent également. Ce dictionnaire de la Lutherie et de l’Archèterie est le premier dictionnaire spécifique qui traite de ces métiers d’art ! Il est agrémenté de planches qui illustrent chaque pièce du violon et de l’archet, les relevés de cotes, différentes formes de “F”... Luthiers professionnels, amateurs de lutherie, musiciens, mélomanes, collectionneurs avertis... trouveront les mots du métier et les mots d'atelier dans ce livre qualifié, dans la préface, d'évènement et d'indispensable sous la signature du Maître-Luthier et Archetier Bernard Millant. Premier à traiter de ces deux métiers d'art, ce Dictionnaire de la Lutherie et de l'Archèterie sera apprécié des luthiers et musiciens, des mélomanes et collectionneurs. Les premiers retrouveront les mots propres à leur métier et à leur art, les seconds les termes entendus lors de concerts ou de visites dans les ateliers de lutherie ou encore rencontrés lors de l'une ou l'autre lecture. Sous la plume d'Eric Lehmann, ils retrouveront toute leur signification

Los Instrumentos Musicales en el Mundo by François-René Tranchefort, Carmen Hernández Molero (traductora)

Book description
La importancia dada a las civilizaciones extra-europeas, relegadas hasta hace poco al ámbito de la etnomusicología, y el rechazo de la segregación de la música «popular» respecto a la música «culta» permiten conceder el debido espacio a los instrumentos primitivos, tradicionales y folklóricos. Renunciando al objetivo enciclopédico de establecer un inventario exhaustivo, el autor selecciona los instrumentos más característicos dentro de cada «familia» conocida.

Musica getutscht. a treatise on musical instruments (1511) by Sebastian Virdung / Beth Bullard (translator, editor)

Book description
Musica getutscht (Basel, 1511) is the earliest printed treatise on musical instruments in the West. Written by a priest and chapel singer named Sebastian Virdung, it provided rudimentary instruction on playing three instruments: the clavichord, the lute and the recorder. This early 'do-it-yourself' manual of instruction not only tells us about music-making in that era, it also illumines other aspects of society in the years just before the Reformation. Its author communicates in a popular style, choosing a mixture of media: a written text in the guise of an informal conversation, coupled with woodcut illustrations and visual aids. Enthusiasts of early music and its performance as well as historians of art, society and the German language will welcome Beth Bullard's substantial introduction and annotations, which help explain the text of this important work and its place in intellectual history.

The Complete Encyclopedia of Musical Instruments by Bert Oling, Heinz Wallisch

Book description
This book is one that you might expect to find buried in the books section of a discount club superstore, along with picture books on dogs and cats, plants, flowers and birds, World War II, Corvettes and Ferraris and other assorted planes, trains and automobiles, and what-have-you. And that is precisely where I happened to stumble across it while recently "weekend shopping." However, I don't think it particularly likely that the typical Amazon.com shopper looking for such a book will trip over it here, except by accident. So perhaps my thoughts on the book will bring it some additional customer exposure. It is not bad for what it is, it is lavishly illustrated (although not of "coffee table book" size), and it is certainly inexpensive enough.

The Oxford Companion to Musical Instruments by Anthony Baines

Book description
Anthony C. Baines provides a comprehensive guide to the astonishing variety of Western and non-Western musical instruments. Each entry in this lavishly illustrated book offers a concise description of the instrument, as well as a wealth of information on such subjects as playing techniques, harmonics and circular breathing, the sound of an instrument, acoustics, pitch, an instrument's use within the orchestral repertoire or, for ethnomusicological instruments, within ritual, and significant developments in its history. Baines covers a vast array of instruments, from the common cowbell, to the Red-hot fountain pen (a novelty instrument of the 1930s), to the Celtic harp. About the Author Anthony Baines is the retired Curator of the Bate Collection of Historical Instruments in the University of Oxford. The author of several books and articles on instruments, he co-founded the Galpin Society, formed in 1946 to promote the study of musical instruments, and edited its journal 1956-63, and from 1971.
