Download and read online The Last Waltz in PDF and EPUB Captured in a beautiful package, including more than fifty color photographs, The Last Waltz tells the intriguing story of of the Viennese Strauss family known for producing some of the best known, best loved music of the nineteenth century. Johann and Josef Strauss, the Waltz Kings, composed hundreds of instantly recognizable and enduring melodies, including The Blue Danube Waltz, Tales from the Vienna Woods, Voices of Spring and The Radetzky March. Their iconic music has been featured on the scores of nearly a thousand films. Yet despite their success, this was a family riven with tension, feuds and jealousy, living in a country that was undergoing seismic upheaval. Through the personal and political chaos, the Strauss family continued to compose music to which the Viennese – anxious to forget their troubles – could dance and drank champagne, even as their country hurtled towards oblivion at the hands of the First World War. Classical music expert and radio host John Suchet skillfully portrays this gripping story, capturing the family dramas, the tensions, triumphs and disasters against the turbulent backdrop of Austria in the nineteenth century, from revolution to regicide.

Download and read online The Last Waltz of The Band in PDF and EPUB For Vol. 2 of the series CMS Sourcebooks in American Music, Neil Minturn acknowledges the phenomenon of rock and roll with a serious examination of Martin Scorsese's film, THE LAST WALTZ (1978), the celebrated "rockumentary" that so artfully captured for posterity the final performance of The Band. From 1861 to 1976, this partnership of one American and four Canadians produced an impressive body of popular song in the rock idiom between 1961 and 1976. Joining its members for their farewell performance are a variety of guests, who, like The Band itself, reflected the rich array of traditions that have nourished rock and roll since its emergence. Minturn approaches the substance of the performances and the film itself in terms of intimacy and tradition. He presents the San Francisco concert as a summation of an extraordinary musical journey and prefaces his "scene-by-scene" analysis with a cogent introduction to documentary filmmaking. Selected performances are discussed in detail.

Download and read online Matilda s Last Waltz in PDF and EPUB Faced with the tragic deaths of both her husband and baby, Jenny is at her wit's end, with nowhere to turn. She soon learns that her husband has left for her, of all things, a sheep-station known as Churinga, in the Australian Outback. Although she thinks his final gift to her a strange one, Jenny thinks she might find solace in a trip out to Churinga. After all, what better way to feel close to her husband now than to visit a place he loved? But, like the grief she has tried to leave behind, the Outback she encounters is barren and the weather, hostile; however, Jenny is not one to turn around. Once there she hears of Churinga's last keeper, Matilda, whose identity becomes less and less clear to Jenny: the neighbors hold a grudging respect for Matilda's way with the land but are reluctant to speak of her to Jenny. And as Jenny spends more and more time on the farm, her predecessor's lingering presence looms ever larger. Then she discovers some old diaries and is bewitched by a tale more shocking than her wildest dreams could foretell. And the deeper she delves into Matilda's past, the more Jenny wonders whether inheriting Churinga has been a blessing or a curse, in Matilda's Last Waltz by Tamara McKinley.

Download and read online Last Waltz in Vienna in PDF and EPUB On Saturday 26 February, 1938, seventeen-year-old Georg Klaar took his girlfriend Lisl to his first ball at the Konzerthaus. His family were proudly Austrian. They were also Jewish. Just two weeks later came the Anschluss. A family had been condemned to death by genocide. This new edition of George Clare`s incredibly affecting account of Nazi brutality towards the Jews includes a previously unpublished post-war letter from his Uncle to a friend who had escaped to Scotland. This moving epistle passes on the news of those who had survived and the many who had been arrested, deported, murdered or left to die in concentration camps, and those who had been orphaned or lost their partners or children. It forms a devastating epilogue to what has been hailed as a classic of holocaust literature. `A work of literary genius` Michael Burleigh `A deeply moving book. I felt enriched and grateful after reading it` John le Carré `Told with calm and dignity. I shall not forget the mother and father` Rumer Godden `Admirable, combining very cleverly the historical and personal` Graham Greene `There have been many moving stories of Jewish persecution but none more overwhelming than this` Lord Langford `Mr Clare leads us gently, but inexorably, to the edge of the pit and then leaves us to look down into it` Edward Crankshaw,Observer `This poignant memoir is written from the heart... the truest defence against political hatreds for the future` David Pryce-Jones,Financial Times

Download and read online The Last Waltz in PDF and EPUB THE LAST WALTZ Vienna May 1945 THE LAST WALTZ - Vienna May 1945 - is the uncompromising story of a United States O.S.S. four man, secret mission into Russian occupied Vienna in the uncertain days following the unconditional surrender of the German Armed Forces, and of a small, U.S. Army patrol sent to rendezvous with the four men on their return from Vienna in territory still being held by German SS troops who have not surrendered. As the war had progressed there was mounting alarm in Washington at the extent of Russian Intelligence activities in the U.S.A. and the lack of knowledge available to the U.S. Secret Service on their Russian counterparts. The Last Waltz was part of the process to redress that situation. On April 13th, 1945, the German garrison surrenders Vienna to the Russian troops and Vienna is to endure many days of terror and anarchy. Doctor Anna Holtz, a Swiss national and the daughter in law of an eminent Austrian scientist, fears for her life, and she has valuable information that was given to her by her father in law before he died. On the same night, four Austrian Officers and a Sergeant of the German Wehrmacht make plans for one of the officers, a Captain, and the Sergeant, who have both worked for German Military Intelligence, to surrender themselves to the U.S. Army and offer to return to Vienna with a U.S. agent to retrieve certain documented, secret information that will be valuable to the U.S. which is being safeguarded in Vienna, and also to help Doctor Holtz escape from Vienna. In another part of the city, John Spencer, a British secret agent, is preparing to leave the city and make his way through the German lines and return to London. Two days later, the Wehrmacht Captain and Sergeant surrender to a forward unit of the U.S. Third Army and are interrogated by Captain Maddox, a U.S. Intelligence Officer who sends the two prisoners direct to a Major Keller, a U.S. staff officer at Army Headquarters. The U.S. High Command recognises the importance of the information offered by the Captain and the need to get Doctor Holtz out of Vienna before the Russians become aware that she holds such valuable information. The High Command is also aware of the delicacy of the situation. The Americans seek the help of British Intelligence who have had Spencer operating in Vienna from before the war. Spencer is a maverick British agent recruited from the criminal underworld and during his period in Vienna as a British spy, he has continued to operate his own interests in the criminal, network. It is known that many members of the Austrian Resistance Movement are communist sympathisers, so British Intelligence decide to cash in on Spencer's other activities and contacts. Spencer is cajoled and blackmailed into agreeing to return to Vienna and joins up with Major Keller of the O.S.S. who has been assigned to head the operation into Vienna with the Austrian Captain and Sergeant. The operation has no official recognition and has been unofficially titled THE LAST WALTZ. Spencer makes arrangements for their return to Vienna through his underworld contacts. Captain Maddox, who had first interrogated the Austrian Captain, is ordered to take some of his men behind Russian held lines to rendezvous with Major Keller's party on their return from Vienna. This does not please Captain Maddox, or his men, because the rendezvous is in an area where German SS troops are still fighting their way West. In bo
