Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From modulation to twentieth-century serial composition, this companion volume to ELEMENTARY HARMONY, Fifth Edition completes the study of eighteenth-century and nineteenth-century harmony. The text concludes first with a chapter on the music of Claude Debussy, serving as a transition to the final three chapters designed as an introduction to twentieth-century music.

Author Robert W. Ottman presents a wide variety of music examples from music literature and applies material learned to written and keyboard/harmony study programs. ADVANCED HARMONY, Fifth Edition also includes step-by-step suggestions for analysis of seemingly difficult harmonic problems and, in twentieth-century music, detailed instruction in the use and analysis of the twelve-tone method of music composition.

  • NEW-Extensive rewriting and reorganization of text materials designed to improve their clarity and to simplify their application to analysis and to writing projects
  • .

  • NEW-Additional music examples, including compositions by women composers
  • .

  • NEW-Additional exercises with bass line only given as each new harmonic study is presented
  • .

  • NEW-Revised terminology in chapters on music form and on diminished seventh chords
  • .

  • NEW-References to the Workbook where parallel assignments include given answers
  • .

  • NEW-References to musical selections on an accompanying CD
  • .
