About the Author:

Robert P. Morgan is Professor Emeritus of Music at Yale University. Active as both a theorist and historian, his book Twentieth-Century Music (1991) has been a standard text for over twenty years. He has published numerous other books as editor, including Alban Berg: Historical and Analytical Perspectives (1991), Modern Times (1993) and Hearing and Knowing Music: The Unpublished Essays of Edward T. Cone (2009). He has served as Chair of the Music Departments at both the University of Chicago and Yale University and was a recipient of grants from the German Government and the National Endowment for the Humanities, plus a Burlington Northern Achievement Award for distinction in graduate teaching in Humanities at the University of Chicago. He has been a member of numerous advisory, executive, and editorial boards and was Chair of the Visiting Committee of the Music Department at Harvard University and twice a faculty member of the Mannes Institute for Advanced Studies in Music Theory.

From Library Journal:

Cone's comprehensive perspective on musical matters derives from his experience not only as writer and theorist, but also as composer and performer, and from his wide-ranging interest in and knowledge of other arts. These 18 influential essays--the earliest dating from 1954, the latest only now published--ably represent Cone's abiding interests. Grouped into three areas, the essays discuss methodologies of analysis and criticism, music aesthetics, the relationship between music and words, the compositional practice of 19th- and 20th-century masters from Beethoven to Webern, and the inseparability of musical form from musical expression. The value of Cone's literate, readable work lies in its synthesizing and unifying nature. Strongly recommended not only for music but also for humanities collections.
