Description

Music for Analysis is a varied collection of more than 400 pieces of music from the Baroque period to the present. This anthology provides both excerpts and complete pieces for analysis of style, musical idiom, small forms, tonal harmony, and contemporary techniques. Covering a full range of genres, styles, media, and composers, the musical pieces illustrate standard usage and idiomatic procedures and can be used with any music theory text. Organized logically by harmonic content, Music for Analysis moves progressively and systematically through the techniques and musical scores of the common practice period and 20th century. In the Sixth Edition, the authors have placed more emphasis on the complete pieces for analysis already included and added several more (including "Gavea" by Darius Milhaud, which contains a wide variety of contemporary techniques, and a complete Mozart sonata). The revision also includes precise measure numbers for all excerpts from larger pieces. In this new edition, an audio CD containing recorded music from the text will be packaged with each book.show more
