Building on the same pedagogy that informed The Complete Musician, this Graduate Review of Tonal Theory is the first book to review music theory at a level that is sophisticated enough for beginning graduate students. Steven G. Laitz and Christopher Bartlette address students as colleagues, and thoroughly explore appealing and practical analytical applications. The text also provides a means to discuss the perception and cognition, the analysis and performance, and the composition and reception of common-practice tonal music. Marked by clarity and brevity, Graduate Review of Tonal Theory presents crucial concepts and procedures found in the majority of tonal pieces.

Distinctive Features

*Integrates two- to three-page "Analytical Extensions" at the end of each chapter, which introduce an additional topic through one or two works from the repertoire, and then develop the topic in a model analysis
*Synthesizes the essential concepts of music theory and pieces from the repertoire that expand upon and refine the analytical applications taught in the undergraduate theory curriculum
*Includes an in-text DVD with recordings by Eastman students and faculty of musical examples from the text and analytical exercises from the workbook

Also Available:
A workbook for students (978-0-19-537699-9) that can be packaged with the text at a significant savings! (Package ISBN: 978-0-19-538628-8). This invaluable resource is organized by chapter into discrete assignments (3-5 per chapter), each progressing from short, introductory analytical and writing exercises to more involved tasks. The workbook also includes an appendix of keyboard exercises.

About the Author:


Steven G. Laitz is Associate Professor of Music Theory and Affiliate Faculty Member in Chamber Music at the Eastman School of Music, and serves on the piano faculty at the Chautauqua Institution. He has received various teaching awards, has presented and published work on nineteenth-century music and pedagogy, and is the author of The Complete Musician: An Integrated Approach to Tonal Theory, Analysis, and Listening, Second Edition (OUP, 2007).

Christopher Bartlette is Assistant Professor of Music at Binghamton University. His research in music cognition and performance has led to articles and presentations at national and international conferences in music theory, perception, and cognition.

Review:

"I would point to the extremely solid conceptual grounding; the musical utility of the long-range thinking it encourages; the logical progression of topics; the clarity and efficiency of presentation; the quality of analytical insight; and the possibility of having everything you need in one
place. The workbook provides a very impressive range of tasks-much more varied and interesting than one usually finds. One gets the sense that the author[s] understand exactly the nature of graduate review courses."

--Roman Ivanovitch, Indiana University

"[The workbook] exercises are inspirationally clever. . . . I like the wide variety of 'real music' examples as well and I suspect my grad students would be equally appreciative. . . . I like the summaries, point-by-point reminders, and suggestions about matters such as how to figure a bass or how
to write a sequence. Students will find such lists to be both very clear and very comforting."-Neil Minturn, University of Missouri

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2009. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This text is the first graduate music theory review designed specifically to address the one-semester course for beginning graduate students in music. Based on The Complete Musician, the text is more than a shortened version of an undergraduate tonal harmony text; it addresses students as colleagues and explores analytical applications that are appealing and practical, extending beyond the undergraduate level. The text provides a means to discuss the perception and cognition, the analysis and performance, and the composition and reception of common-practice tonal music. The clarity and brevity of this text relies on the presentation of only those crucial concepts and procedures that are manifested in the vast majority of tonal pieces. The only text exercises are at chapter ends: two- to three-page Analytical extensions, which introduce one new topic through one or two works from the repertoire, and then develop the topic in a model analysis. Appendixes will include keyboard exercises, model composition strategies and assignments, and sample solutions. An accompanying workbook is organized by chapter into discrete assignments, each progressing from short, introductory analytical and writing exercises to more-involved tasks. Included is a DVD of recordings by the Eastman students and faculty of musical examples from the text and analytical exercises from the workbook. Seller Inventory # AAS9780195376982
