Hendrik Kits Van Heyningen rated it liked it Mar 22, Jul 26, Richard Pohl rated it really liked it Shelves: This is not an “ordinary” theory textbook. Instead of recapitulating the development of tonal harmony in the guise of pedagogy, they start with the Schenkerian basic relationship of the dominant to the tonic and spiral outward in ever increasing complex relationships. Kimberly rated it liked it May 11, It seems that several previous sets of errors have been ironed out in the edition.

Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Con Robinson rated it it was ok Mar 13, While reading through, so far seems to be the most comprehensive book on tonal harmony I’ve seen It is aimed at students who want to “get better grades in the shortest time possible”. There are plenty of exercises on the accompanying website, and footnotes etc where additional explanation or illustration would be obtrusive in the body of the text.

Production is to a very high standard: Though, for all the book’s highly authoritative and academic tone and approach, it’s not a slog. But can also learn the mechanics of the harmonic and voice-leading principles schafhter situ. Ben rated it really liked it Jul 25, Steven Riley rated it liked harmoy Aug 13, Want to Read saving….

The style of exposition clear and schachrer personal. Colleen Mckenzie rated it really liked it Dec 22, Mark rated it really liked it Jul 31, But it’s also a lengthy hardback, at well over pages.

The three authors Edward Aldwell died while this edition was in preparation aim is to offer a comprehensive course of study in harmony of the music of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The experience of the authors enables them to predict areas that might cause difficulty and slow the pace; so they increase the illustrative examples accordingly to help.

Behrad Emami rated it really liked it Sep 08, Lewding 28, Jaime Mares rated it really liked it. In fact the topics are so well divided that you can almost dip in and out. Thanks for telling us about the problem. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Schacjter a very sane, practical, colorful, well-footnoted, sensitive and authoritative one.


It deals with much more than the relationships expressed in harmonic, and even melodic, intervals.

In almost three dozen chapters, of between a dozen and two dozen pages each, a very broad range of topics pertaining to how music is constructed is covered. It’s not a book vpice drilling inversions or fingering Major sevenths on the guitar.

Jun 26, Joe rated it liked it Shelves: W0lfgang M0zart ldading it really liked it Jun 17, The material covered in the book is sufficiently comprehensive and well-enough set out to enhance the listening experience of many a Classical Net reader. The first three Units of the book are designed to be taught sequentially, but instructors have the flexibility to teach the latter units in any combination and order they choose.

One of the book’s great strengths is its coverage of tonal structures in music such that we become more aware of how compositions work as they do across broader time and tonal spans… not just the minutiae of closely related chords and notes.
