This collection of 21 model essays written by some of the most highly regarded contemporary North American scholars in music theory is designed to provide advanced undergraduates and graduates majoring in music with exemplary models of music analysis. The book would be a useful supplement to the scores that are studies in upper level Form and Analysis courses. The topics range from Purcell and Bach to the classical (Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven), 19th-century masters (Schubert, Schumann, Brahms, Chopin, and Wagner) and 20th-century (Bartok, Schoenberg, Webern). Also included are analyses of popular music (jazz, rock, the Beatles) and a recent work by Barbara Kolb.show more
