Richard WagnerTristan und Isolde,Vorspiel & Isoldes LiebestodBirgit Nilsson, IsoldeDie Walküre, Erster Aufzug (Act One)Claire Watson, SieglindeFritz Uhl, SiegmundJosef Greindl, HundingLudwig van BeethovenOverture “Leonore III”, op.72aConcerto for Piano and OrchestraNo. 4 in G major, op. 58Wilhelm Backhaus, pianoThe Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and Hans Knappertsbusch worked together for the fi rst time at the Salzburg Festival in 1929. Mozart’s Little Night Music, de Falla’s Nights in the Gardens of Spain and a Dance Suite by the composer Franckenstein formed the first half of the programme while Beethoven’s Eroica took up the second half. Although the orchestra and the conductor had never met before, Knappertsbusch rehearsed only the first part of the programme. He refused to rehearse Beethoven’s Eroica, saying, “You know the work, I know the score”. The violinist Otto Strasser remembers, “He radiated such confi dence on the evening of the concert that a rehearsalhad indeed not been necessary”…This incident was characteristic for the relationship between the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and Hans Knappertsbusch, which lasted for 35 years, giving 210 concerts and playing for innumerable performances at the Vienna State Opera. Although Knappertsbusch was born near Wuppertal in Westphalia in 1888, the conductor felt particularly at home in Vienna. When the National Socialists removed the somewhat defi ant Musical Director of the Munich State Opera from his post in 1936 in the middle of a performance and forbade him to conduct any further performances or concerts, Knappertsbusch took up a position as conductor at the Vienna State Opera, where Bruno Walter was Artistic Director at the time. As a result he had a particularly close relationship with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, which remained unchanged till the end of the war. After the Second World War Vienna continued to be the centre of his conducting activity - together with Munich and Bayreuth - and until shortly before his death in Munich in 1965, Knappertsbusch’s concerts were the annual highlights of the season not only for the orchestra but also for his many fans.

Anne Bous ( 1941 in Bad Honnef, 1980) war eine deutsche Zeichnerin und Illustratorin, die vor allem durch Kinderbuchillustrationen bekannt wurde. Anne Bous studierte an der Werkkunstschule Wuppertal. Anfang der 1970er Jahre gehörte sie zu den ersten Künstlern, die Hans-Joachim Gelberg für die Kinderbücher des Beltz-Verlages in Weinheim gewann. Sie illustrierte den Gedichtband Gorilla, ärgere dich nicht! von Josef Guggenmos mit 30 Bleistiftzeichnungen. Die Illustrationen in Schwarz-Weiß waren ursprünglich eine Kostenüberlegung, wurden jedoch schnell zu Anne Bous persönlichem Stil. Bis zu ihrem Tod im Jahre 1980 schuf sie Bleistift- und Feder-Zeichnungen für viele Bücher von Beltz & Gelberg u.a. auch Bücher von Juri Korinetz. Eine besondere Stellung nehmen ihre Illustrationen zur Nonsense-Geschichte The story of the four little children, who went round the world von Edward Lear ein.

Seminar paper from the year 2010 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2,3, University of Wuppertal, language: English, abstract: 1. Introduction The following paper deals with the female characters in the play 'The little foxes', written by Lillian Hellmann in 1939. In the United States the role of women in society changed drastically in the 20th century. In the past married women were homebound and dependent on their husbands, but they became active and independent in 1900. The increasing possibilities to work outside the house led to the fact that women became wage- earners. Finally, the women's attitude to life changed dramatically. In the beginning of this paper an overview of the historical background, considering the social role of women in the 20th century, is given. Afterwards, the change of the role of women will be exemplified by the female characters of Regina, Birdie and Alexandra in 'The Little Foxes'. Especially Regina and Birdie can be seen as contrastive examples because they show in an opposite way how to deal with their powerless role in the Hubbard family.

'As economic, environmental, and security imperatives converge, advanced resource productivity is quickly rising to the top of the global agenda. But let's make no little plans: new technologies, artfully combined via integrative design, can now quintuple the work wrung from energy, water, and other resources. Building on our 1997 collaboration in Factor Four, and cross-pollinating with new findings from around the world, this exciting synthesis combines a powerful efficiency toolkit with farsighted policy insights - vital to ensure that efficiency's gains are not offset but reinforced to create a richer, fairer, safer, and cooler world.'– Amory B. Lovins, Chairman and Chief Scientist, Rocky Mountain Institute, USA, Co-Author of 'Factor Four' 'This book shows once again, even to the most conservative critics, that not only are significant improvements possible, they are profitable, and when coupled with the understanding that reducing environmental devastation is critical, provide a vital message of hope for the future.' – Hunter Lovins, President, Natural Capitalism Solutions, Co-Author of 'Factor Four' 'The fivefold increase of resource productivity described in this book is impressive, but perfectly feasible, and it would give the world a bit more time to learn how to adapt.' –Dennis Meadows, Co-author Limits to Growth and 2009 Japan Prize Laureate 'The exciting thing about Factor Five is the combination of boldness and realism, precisely what is needed to get civilization back onto an economic path that is environmentally sustainable.' –Lester R. Brown, President, Earth Policy Institute 'The potential to reduce emissions by 80% on an economically viable basis is good news for world leaders and their negotiators on climate change.' –Dr R K Pachauri, Chairman, Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) 'Factor Five is the clearest non-partisan handbook on ecological renaissance available to date and should be read by every policymaker and practitioner.' –Professor Calestous Juma, Harvard Kennedy School 'The arrival of Factor Five couldn't be more timely - or more significant.' – Jonathon Porritt, Founding Director, Forum for the Future, UK 'The mounting concern about climate change has distracted attention from the fact that CO2 emissions are just part of the existential problem facing humanity. We need urgently to reduce our use of ALL the resources, not just fossil fuels. This new book is the best point of departure I know for doing that. The fivefold increase of resource productivity it describes is impressive, but perfectly feasible, and it would give the world a bit more time to learn how to adapt to ecological collapse. The book has two especially important innovations. The authors deal seriously with the rebound effect, and they base their scenarios on a long term trajectory of rising energy prices.' –Dennis Meadows, Co-author Limits to Growth and 2009 Japan Prize Laureate 'Is it possible to imagine a world where we can actually phase out fossil fuels before the climate phases us out? It's now feasible by reading Factor Five.' – Peter Newman, Professor of Sustainability, Curtin University and author of Resilient Cities '[There can be] no sustainable development without a sustainable development of companies. Factor Five provides compelling arguments and examples that sustainable business is achievable and profitable on a large scale and that companies play a key role in creating sustainable development. Factor Five confirms the crucial role of increasing eco-efficiency to foster sustainable development.' – Stefan Schaltegger, Professor of Sustainability Management, Leuphana University, Germany 'The world needs radical eco-innovation to shape an opportunity out of the current crisis. This book provides excellent key examples in a systems perspective. Written by radical thinkers with a unique experience on how change can be managed, this book is a must-reading for both leaders and academics.' –Prof. Dr. Raimund Bleischwitz, Wuppertal Institute, Co-Director 'Material Flows and Resource Management' Professor at the College of Europe, Bruges/Belgium 'Some may have ignored the message of Factor Four 15

After analysing them in detail, I will focus myself on three topics and will try to find similarities within the analysed poems. However, to be able to understand the backgrounds of each poem, I will start with a little biography from Seamus Heaney, who is responsible (the author from) for the major poems that I will analyse.
