JOSEPH STRAUS INTRODUCTION TO POST-TONAL THEORY PDF

A primer --rather than a survey--this book offers exceptionally clear, simple explanations of basic theoretical concepts for the post-tonal music of the twentieth century. Emphasizing hands-on contact with the music--through playing, singing, listening, and analyzing--it provides six chapters on theory, each illustrated with musical examples and fully worked-out analyses, all drawn largely from the "classical" pre-war repertoire by Schoenberg, Stravinsky, Bartok, Berg, and Webern. Considers three principal kinds of post-tonal music--free atonal music, twelve-tone music, and centric music. Makes extensive use of transformational graphs and networks to present analytical information; and includes a variety of exercises in theory, analysis, musicianship and ear-training, and composition. The author or editor of twelve books and numerous articles, mostly on topics in twentieth-century music, he is a former President of the Society for Music Theory. Convert currency.

Follow us on. Although surprisingly short for the subject matter, at under pages, this book is remarkably effective and can safely be recommended as one of the best of only a handful of standard works on the subject. Given the complexity of the theoretical underpinnings of music in the last hundred years, to cover so much so well in so little space means that such a book is either going to be superficial and highly unsatisfactory; or is an expert distillation by someone so familiar with and so confident in exposing and explaining their subject matter to a wide audience that its brevity and focus work admirably. Introduction to Post-Tonal Theory is squarely in the latter category. The book is divided into six carefully-scoped chapters of roughly 30 pages each. These look first at basic definitions and concepts… pitch and pitch class, equivalence, notation, intervals; in greater depth at Pitch-class sets; at other musical relationships… transposition, inversion and contour; at centricity, referential collections, triadic post-tonality and collection theory; at basic twelve-tone operations; and then in greater detail at twelve-tone theory as practiced specifically by composers from Webern and Schoenberg to Boulez and Babbitt.
