We tap our foot to a beat or love a favorite melody. It has been a part of human life since earliest times. Why music? It is the most direct means we have to communicate.

What will be the mainstay of musical taste in fifty years -- or even another ten? This is my seventh book. In ten years I will be writing another book, and I will bring you up-to-date on the latest musical tastes. See you then! Bernie Keating

Beethoven  Then And Now

Publisher: Xlibris Corporation

Pages: 658
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

I have often heard people express their wish that someone who has died would return to us and relate what the life-death-rebirth experience is really like. Well, someone has! This is exactly what Beethoven does in my third novel, Beethoven, Then and Now. Like Beethoven, each one of us is the proud possessor of a "human soul." This clearly defined object is none other than our very own spiritual subelectron. Our physical hulk is only a pile of ashes; but our "soul" (spiritual subelectron) is unique, eternal, indestructible. Because of its high vibrations, Beethoven's "soul" is immediately attracted to the third subelectronic ring of our First-Second-Order universe. Here it awaits rebirth via fusion with the spiritual subelectron of a Major-Order being within our Second-Order-Major universe. Paul Rezler (age seventeen) is the fortunate recipient of this unbelievable prize. He had awakened to the day at hand with his usual zero interest in music. Now (1827 Earth-time) he is the greatest Earth- musician yet to live. Try as Beethoven does, he cannot adjust to the Second-Order reality of corporate composers, not even to being the absolute leader of the Beethoven Corporation. He must be entirely on his own-- a single man vs. the world! Counselor Robinson does his best in selecting a Subsidiary culture which contains a "Vienna" as close as possible to the one which Beethoven had left behind upon his Earthly death. Within a month, our hero makes his translation and enjoys living where there's not the trace of anything resembling a "musical corporation." Sketches for new "third-period" works begin to flow: a piano sonata, a string quartet, a piano trio, a violin concerto, even some encouraging vibrations of Symphony 10. A handful of piano and violin students emerges, including an exceptional young lady named Anna Rosecranz, who is already a master of these instruments. Her musicianship is so strong that they soon fall in love and are married. How they enjoy performing concerts together! In time, as Beethoven works at his composer's desk, she starts peering over his shoulder. She begs him for lessons in composition. He replies, "I compose, and AM NOT a teacher of composition!" This declaration does not frighten her away. As Beethoven fumbles and bumbles his way from sketchbook to finished score, Anna carefully watches each step of the process. Her comments are invaluable: Use a pedal-point here. Not so dissonant a chord.. Pure melody would fit here. Please, not so sustained. Too many notes in the melody. Avoid more of this rhythm. Two-voice counterpoint would do. Too much for the brass here. This use of strings is perfect. Thanks to Anna, Beethoven accomplishes the impossible. He realizes that he works far better with her help than without it. He now loves to share the very process which only yesterday had demanded his total aloofness. As if by magic, he is now prepared to return to Major-Order life as managing partner in charge of the Beethoven Corporation. But considering all that Anna has done for him, he cannot now simply go his own way. As a Subsidiary being, her lifespan is a mere 100 years, compared to his Second-Order-Major span of 1000 years. Being happily married, he plans to share life for the balance of her days. But Fate has his own plan for their lives--. After all their years of loving and sharing, Anna is "killed" in an automobile accident. When Beethoven returns to the Major Order, a super surprise awaits him. There stands Anna Rosecranz, a full Major-Second-Order being, with whom he can share the rest of their 1000 years in joyful creative activity. His first question: "On Earth, who were you, my dear?" Her reply causes our hero to faint for the second time in his entire Second-Order life!

Nashville Then And Now

Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Nashville, located in the middle of Tennessee on the bluffs of the Cumberland River, is a city with a rich history and culture. Nashville is known today as Music City. It's not just country in Music City, though. The Nashville Symphony Orchestra moved into a grand performance hall in 2006, and members of the symphony have contributed much to the ?Nashville sound” in recordings produced on Music Row. Nashville is a work in progress with construction cranes emerging and disappearing, creating steel, concrete, and glass towers that transform the skyline, seemingly overnight. It has matured into a city that appreciates its past while looking to its future, as is evident in Nashville Then and Now. * Using some extraordinary images from the city's past, paired with the same views today shows how the city has evolved into a bright, modern city that is synonymous with country music. * Campbell's Hill, in Nashville was chosen as the permanent capital of Tennessee in 1843. Tennessee's stately capitol building remains a commanding presence over the city, and Campbell's Hill is now called Capitol Hill. The governor's office is on the east side of the capitol, overlooking a bronze statue of Andrew Jackson on horseback. * The City of Nashville undertook the construction of an exact replica of the Greek Parthenon for the Tennessee centennial celebrations of 1896. Today the Parthenon still stands after a longer-lasting Parthenon, more authentic reproduction replaced the first plaster-and-lathe structure. * General William G. Harding built Belle Meade Mansion in 1853, a Greek Revival house with a broad veranda and square columns cut from solid limestone quarried on the property. Each Christmas, the plantation house is decorated as it would have been in the nineteenth century, and guests are taken on guided tours by docents wearing period clothing. * The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum opened in 1967 on Sixteenth Avenue at the intersection of Division and Demonbreun streets. The museum later vacated the Sixteenth Avenue building and moved to a new and much larger facility downtown.
