Dritte, um "Fiktion und Fakten" erweiterte Auflage. Jeder hat von Johann Sebastian Bachs Wohltemperiertem Klavier gehört - aber über seine Reise nach Fis-Dur weiß kaum jemand etwas. Im März des Jahres 1700, kurz vor seinem fünfzehnten Geburtstag, macht Johann Sebastian Bach sich auf den Weg. Sein Ziel: die vollkommene Musik zu schaffen, eine Musik, die Himmel und Erde in Harmonie vereint. Seine Suche führt ihn schließlich nach Lübeck, wo er Andreas Werckmeister und die wohltemperierte Stimmung kennenlernt. In dieser Stimmung - das ist neu! - kann man alles spielen, alle Tonarten, in Dur und in Moll. Aber die Vollkommenheit hat ihren Preis: Alle Töne werden ein bißchen 'temperiert', das heißt verfälscht, die Musik hat von nun an einen Hauch von Künstlichkeit. Und nicht nur die Töne, auch die Natur und die Menschen werden temperiert. Gärten werden mit geometrischer Exaktheit angelegt, Flüsse kanalisiert, Städte neu entworfen. Die Nacht wird durch die Straßenbeleuchtung zum Tag, die Taschenuhr erlaubt es, die Zeit mitzunehmen, die Stimmgabel den Chorton. Der Weg in eine künstliche Welt hat begonnen. Als Bach das Wohltemperierte Klavier vollendet hat, befällt ihn der abgrundtiefe Zweifel: Ist dieses Werk nicht 'nur von dieser Welt', perfekt, künstlich, profan? 'Bachs Leben besteht für uns vor allem aus biographischen Lücken. Man weiß einiges, aber man weiß vieles nicht. Diese Lücken sind die Chance für den Romancier. Die Fakten waren meine Fessel, aber sie waren auch meine Inspirationsquelle. Frei im Sinne von willkürlich erfunden habe ich nichts.' Jens Johler

Peopled by larger-than-life heroes and villains, charged with towering questions of good and evil, Atlas Shrugged is Ayn Rand’s magnum opus: a philosophical revolution told in the form of an action thriller. Who is John Galt? When he says that he will stop the motor of the world, is he a destroyer or a liberator? Why does he have to fight his battles not against his enemies but against those who need him most? Why does he fight his hardest battle against the woman he loves? You will know the answer to these questions when you discover the reason behind the baffling events that play havoc with the lives of the amazing men and women in this book. You will discover why a productive genius becomes a worthless playboy...why a great steel industrialist is working for his own destruction...why a composer gives up his career on the night of his triumph...why a beautiful woman who runs a transcontinental railroad falls in love with the man she has sworn to kill. Atlas Shrugged, a modern classic and Rand’s most extensive statement of Objectivism—her groundbreaking philosophy—offers the reader the spectacle of human greatness, depicted with all the poetry and power of one of the twentieth century’s leading artists.

The noted Bach scholar Christoph Wolff offers in this book new perspectives on the composer's life and remarkable career. Uncovering important historical evidence, the author demonstrates significant influences on Bach's artistic development and brings insight on his work habits, compositional intent, and the musical traditions that shaped Bach's thought. Wolff reveals a composer devoted to an ambitious and highly individual creative approach, one characterized by constant self-criticism and self-challenge, the absorption of new skills and techniques, and the rethinking of riches from the musical past. Readers will find analyses of some of Bach's greatest music, including the B Minor Mass, important cantatas, keyboard and chamber compositions, the Musical Offering, and the Art of Fugue. Discussion of how these pieces "work" will be helpful to performers--singers, players, conductors--and to everyone interested in exploring the conceptual and contextual aspects of Bach's music. All readers will find especially interesting those essays in which Wolff elaborates on his celebrated discoveries of previously unknown works: notably the fourteen "Goldberg" canons and a collection of thirty-three chorale preludes. --From publisher's description.

Meg Wolitzer’s “hilariously moving, sharply written novel” (USA TODAY), hailed by critics and loved by readers worldwide, with its “dead-on observations about sex, marriage, and the family ties that strangle and bind” (Cleveland Plain Dealer). Crackling with intelligence and humor, The Position is the masterful story of one extraordinary family at the hilarious height of the sexual revolution—and through the thirty-year hangover that followed. In 1975, Paul and Roz Mellow write a bestselling Joy of Sex-type book that mortifies their four school-aged children and ultimately changes the shape of the family forever. Thirty years later, as the now dispersed family members argue over whether to reissue the book, we follow the complicated lives of each of the grown children and their conflicts in love, work, marriage, parenting, and, of course, sex—all shadowed by the indelible specter of their highly sexualized parents. Insightful, panoramic, and compulsively readable, The Position is an American original.
