Constructing a new music industry : musically branding Brazil in the 2010s.
Brazilian music has been central to Brazil's national brand in the U.S. and U.K. since the early-1960s. From bossa nova in 1960s jazz and film, through the 1970s fusion and funk scenes, the world music boom of the late 1980s and the bossa nova remix revival at the turn of the millennium, and on to Brazilian musical distribution and branding in the streaming music era, Bossa Mundo: Brazilian Music in Transnational Media Industries focuses on watershed moments of musical breakthrough, exploring what the music may have represented in a particular historical moment alongside its deeper cultural impact. Through a discussion of the political meaning of mass-mediated music, author K. E. Goldschmitt argues for a shift in scholarly focus-from viewing music as simply a representation of Otherness to taking into account the broader media environment where listeners and intermediaries often have conflicting priorities. Goldschmitt demonstrates that the mediation of Brazilian music in an increasingly crowded transnational marketplace has lasting consequences for the creative output celebrated by Brazil. Like other culturally rich countries in Latin America-such as Cuba, Mexico, and Argentina-Brazil has captured the imagination of people in many parts of the world through its music, driving tourism and international financial investment, while increasing the country's prominence on the world stage Nevertheless, stereotypes of Brazilian music persist, especially those that valorize racial difference. Featuring interviews with key figures in the transnational circulation of Brazilian music, and in-depth discussions of well-known Brazilian musicians alongside artists who redefine what it means to be a Brazilian musician in the twenty-first century, Bossa Mundo shows the pernicious effects of branding racial diversity on musicians and audiences alike.

One of the most beloved film musicals of all time, The Wizard of Oz represents an enduring family favorite and cultural classic. Yet there is much more to the story than meets the eye, and the MGM movie is just one of many ways in which it has been represented. In this lively and wide-ranging book, editors Danielle Birkett and Dominic McHugh bring together insights from eleven experts into the varied musical forms this great American myth has taken in the past century. Starting with the early adaptations of L. Frank Baum's story, the book also explores the writing, composition and reception of the MGM film, its importance in queer culture, stage adaptations of the movie, cult classic The Wiz, Stephen Schwartz's Broadway blockbuster Wicked, and the cultural afterlife of the iconic Arlen-Harburg songs. What emerges is a vivid overview of how music - on stage and screen - has been an essential part of the story's journey to become a centerpiece of American culture. (source: Nielsen Book Data)

This book presents the story of renowned cellist Aldo Parisot, who started his career in his native Brazil and then emigrated to the U.S., establishing himself as a major soloist worldwide. His colleague and friend Janos Starker has described Mr. Parisot as "a top-notch performer" and "the best cello teacher of his time." Parisot expanded the cello repertoire by commissioning contemporary composers, including the Brazilian Heitor Villa-Lobos, as well as numerous American composers. He has, in addition, discovered and revived older music for the instrument. He has been responsible, as in the case of the Parisonatina by Donald Martino, so named in honor of Parisot, for shaping the music together with the composer. The book also considers his groundbreaking work with the cello ensemble at Yale and at festivals around the globe. Parisot's life is interesting not only as the story of an extraordinary performer but also as a human story about overcoming hardship. His personality is colorful, and he is a compelling visual artist as well as an exciting musician.
