Book Description Schirmer Books, 1992. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. First Edition; First Printing. This specific hardback book is in near fine condition with a hard board cover that has sharp edges and corners and has a tight binding. The pages are clean, crisp, unmarked and uncreased with no underlining, highlighting, or notes but for a small area (1/8 - 1/16 of an inch) of creasing to the top edge of about 70 pages. This is minor damage and in no way interferes with the text, but is worth mentioning and is the only defect that takes this book out of the like new rating. The dust jacket is in fine condition with only the slightest bit of cover or edge wear. We package all books in custom cardboard book boxes for shipment and ship daily with tracking numbers.; "This book is divided into thirteen chapters. Chapter 1 surveys critical comments dealing with qualities of sound in the ninteenth century. Chapter 2 examines the continuity between Classic and Romantic texture and sound. Specific examples drawn from piano, orchestral, and chamber music literature are discussed in chapters 3-5. Chapter 6 explores the uses of harmonic color in the Romantic repertoire. Chapter 7 reviews the tradition of the period form in Western music. Chapter 8 discusses rhetorical reductions, a technique that factors out the changes introduced by the new sound values to uncover the conventional outlines of the music. Chapter 9 examines symmetrical arrangements in the music of Johannes Brahms, Giuseppe Verdi, Felix Mendelssohn, and Robert Schumann. Chapter 10 discusses the modification of symmetry by sustained sounds and harmonic progressions in the music of Carl Maria von Weber, Franz Schubert, Frederic Chopin, and Richard Wagner. Chapter 11 explores the extensions of periodic symmetryin the music of Hector Berlioz, Gustav Mahler, Franz Liszt, Brahms, and Wagner. The last two chapters treat small forms and sonata forms in the music of Mendelssohn, Brahms, Liszt, and Mahler. - taken from the dust jacket" ; 9.29 X 6.30 X 1.10 inches; 348 pages.
