Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Taking a linear functional approach, Professor Gauldin uses clear explanations and outstanding musical examples to show students how individual chords function in the overall structure of a piece, explaining how both harmonic and melodic forces contribute to the development of musical ideas. For the Second Edition, Professor Gauldin has undertaken a comprehensive revision that responds directly to the suggestions of instructors. The new text emphasizes fundamental concepts, using a more effective organization and simpler, more accessible language to bring the most important ideas and information to the foreground. The music literature examples included in the text are now available on this single CD-ROM with performances by students and faculty from the Eastman School of Music.

Book News Annotation:

This textbook takes a linear, functional approach to tonal music in the common-practice era, explaining how both harmonic and melodic forces contribute to the development of musical structures. Coverage includes the basic elements of music; functional diatonic harmony, modulations, and sequences; the common procedures of chromatic harmony; and advanced chromatic techniques. The second edition contains a broader range of musical examples than the first, featuring more world music, popular music, jazz, and music by women.
