Summary

“A History of the Violin Bow” is a collection of classic articles on the subject of the violin, with a particular focus on the bow. The articles explore a range of topics from the history and origins of the violin, to notable makers, rare examples, and beyond. This volume is highly recommended for violin players and those with an interest in the history of this wonderful instrument. Contents include: “Old Violins and Violin Lore, by H. R. Haweis”, “The Fiddler Fancier's Guide, by James M. Fleming”, “History of the Violin”, and “Catalog of Rare Old Violins, Violas, and Violoncellos – Also Bows of Rare Makers, by Lyon and Healy”. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on the history of the violin.
Available since: 08/26/2016.

    Since the foundation of the Au Lac kingdom three centuries ago – famous for their bronze drums and their magnificent artilleries – until the works of the painters from the Ecole des Beaux-Arts of Indochina, created in Hanoi in 1925, the arts of Vietnam have been marked by its profoundly original cultures and the fusion between Asia and the Occident. The modern Vietnamese civilization has therefore inherited a very rich and multifaceted history.

    This is a book to help you learn to play the piano. It is not a 'Learn the Piano in Ten Easy Lessons' tutor - plenty of those exist - but an adventure introducing you to the world of music and stirring your imagination. Beginning with simple pieces, as you are fed with more knowledge the compositions become more advanced. They are all by composers whose works range from a 14th century Venetian dance to a 20th century South American tango. Your journey takes you through sixty-eight pieces with their historical and geographical backgrounds, the last being the much-loved first movement of Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata. Hence the title.

    The Bayreuth Festspielhaus stands today as a testament to Richard Wagner’s ambition and self-importance – a theatre designed and built solely for the performances of his immersive ‘music dramas’. From the influence of Beethoven to the transcendental properties of his greatest music, Wagner’s work became a cornerstone of European musical culture, but what kind of journey took him towards this remarkable achievement? In this fascinating audio biography we hear about Wagner’s tempestuous personal life, his controversial political views and his struggles to establish himself as one of the most influential musical visionaries of the 19th century. The narrative is illustrated with excerpts from all of the best-loved operas including the Ring cycle, Tristan und Isolde, Lohengrin, Der fliegende Holländer, Parsifal, and more.

    By selling my photos and videos online I have earned more than 100 thousand euros, thanks to microstocks: agencies that provide webmasters, marketers, documentary directors and anyone who wants to buy content created by others to use on their projects. 
    As a photography enthusiast, I traveled the world with my reflex camera paying for flights and hotels with the sales of my images and videos. This was incredibly satisfying, but not easy at all, as I had to learn which subjects sold the best, how to describe my pictures and footage to be found by customers, and how to organize the production to be more efficient. 
    Over the years I became so professional that in the end I was able to give up my job and start living the life I wanted. 
    For those who want to start today, no big investment is needed: uploading to microstock sites is free, and the only necessary equipment is the camera you already have, or even your smartphone. 
    The real challenge is understanding what photos and videos the buyers want. If you don't get the help of someone who has studied this business, you will have no chances for making good money. 
    The earnings I got prove that I am the right person for you, and the explanations that I give in "Sell your Photos and Videos Online" will make the difference between making small change and creating an income that can improve the way you live.

    We're currently in the golden age of superhero blockbusters. Movies like Black Panther, Wonder Woman, Joker, and Avengers: Endgame routinely break box office records and compete for Oscars. Yet, Zack Snyder's 2017 behemoth Justice League—a veritable sure bet at the Hollywood casino—tanked miserably, and the behind-the-scenes reasons for the movie's demise are fascinating.The true story behind Justice League’s failure is only half of the juicy narrative, though. Snyder—who left the project months before filming concluded—still fans the flames that surround the rumor of a "Snyder Cut" of the film. This allegedly is the version of the story he wanted to tell before the studio, Warner Bros., pulled him off of the project.Pop-culture fans love a meaty mystery, and the controversy swirling around the lost Snyder Cut of Justice League has been captivating comic-book movie fans for years. Additionally, an army of passionate DC and Snyder fans are committed to getting the "Cut" released. Their stories are remarkable, and the book is just as much about the dedicated fans who make up the Snyder Cut movement as it is about the unreleased film. Their efforts finally paid off with the recent announcement that Snyder's cut will be released in 2021 by Warner Bros. and HBO Max. Release the Snyder Cut tells the entire story.
