Anthology for Musical Analysis
Author: Charles Burkhart
Number Of Pages: 688
Details: A landmark collection of over 200 complete musical compositions and movements, ranging from the Middle Ages to the present, Anthology for Musical Analysis offers first- and second-year music theory students a wealth of illustrations of chords, voice-leading techniques, and forms, plus some material for figured-bass realization and score reading. In addition, this book provides ample material for both a full-year course in the analysis of musical forms and a one-semester course in twentieth-century techniques. Because this book takes no theoretical position, it is adaptable to any theoretical approach and to any type of curriculum, including those that combine theory study with music literature and the history of musical style.
