A Crash CourseBook - 1999
nnouncing two new additions to the exciting Crash Course series! Now you can add a wealth of information about Music and Theatre to your huge store of knowledge on Literature, Jazz, Art, Opera, Movies, and Architecture. Music: A Crash Course offers readers a surefire way to ingratiate themselves with the conservatoire types. Impress friends and family with your superior knowledge of Gregorian chants, instruments, and the repertoires of the most notable composers of the 20th century - to name just a few of the subjects covered in this must-have primer for the classical music neophyte. And who can resist Theatre: A Crash Course? Here's your chance to become an expert on "corpsing" and proscenium arches. A world tour takes you from off-off Broadway shows to the Bard of Avon to classical Japanese theatre. The various genres of theatre are explained, along with discussions of noteworthy playwrights such as Miller, Albee, Shepard, Simon, Ibsen, Shaw, and Pinter, and the actors who have brought (and continue to bring) the written word to life. Both titles are superior party-piece material.
