9780198790136: Analysis through Composition: Principles of the Classical Style

In this textbook, Cook provides an unusual and stimulating new approach to teaching analytical concepts through the study of style composition. He emphasizes throughout analysis and decision-making within a practical context, drawing on musical examples from eighteenth-century works. Students can use these examples as models to complete compositional assignments provided in a number of subject areas.

About the Author:

Nicholas Cook is the author of A Guide to Musical Analysis (Dent, 1987; pb 1989) and Music, Imagination, and Culture (OUP, 1990; pb, 1992), and Ludwig van Beethoven: Symphony no. 9 (CUP, 1993).

Review:

`Everything about this book is so clearly thought out and presented that the reviewer need only 'cherry pick' the points from its preface ... The book usefully appends a series of work-sheets. Cook's materials comprise felicitously chosen works by minor composers ... it provides a framework
which is free enough to allow the teacher to improvise.'
Michael Spitzer, Music and Letters
