DeepDyve, an online rental service for scholarly and professional research articles, has just introduced a service which allows users to preview the full text of any article for free for five minutes per day. Users will no longer have to settle for simply reading abstracts. With just an email address and password, users can sign up in seconds and gain free access to more than 8 million articles from 3,000 peer-reviewed journals. Users can browse and sample as many articles as they wish. However, each article can only be previewed once every 24 hours. DeepDyve also gives researchers the opportunity to rent or purchase journal articles.
To mark Benjamin Britten’s centenary, the British Library has digitised all of its Britten manuscripts and made them available online at http://www.bl.uk/manuscripts. Many of the manuscripts are on permanent loan to the Britten-Pears Library in Aldeburgh, under the terms of Britten’s will, so the digital facsimiles will make it easy for researchers to study Britten’s music wherever they are.
The British Library has also launched a new exhibition on Benjamin Britten, running from 31 May to 15 September 2013. The free exhibition explores the literary influences on Britten’s music, from Shakespeare and Jonson to Auden and Isherwood, as well as some of the political and musical influences that shaped his work. For further details, please see http://www.bl.uk/britten
Richard Wagner, 1867
The British Library Music Department has marked the 200th anniversary of Wagner’s birth by publishing some of the manuscripts of his works from their collections.
This includes some rarely encountered works from his early years and also features drafts and sketches which can give a valuable insight into his working practices.
The materials may be viewed on the British Library Music Blog at this link:
One hundred years to the day since the première in Paris of Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring
, one of the twentieth century’s seminal works, musicians from Kirkos present Rite reworked for string trio and live visuals.
Audiences will have the opportunity to hear fascinating re-imagined accounts by RIAM composition students, as well as more established Irish composers, of each section of this landmark work in the relaxed setting of Dublin’s popular Odessa Club, 29 May 2013 .
