Harmony and voice leading. Edward Aldwell, Carl Schachter – Details – Trove
Con Keading rated it it was ok Mar 13, It does much to explain why and how harmony works in the way it does making its points with compositions from Tallis’ Canon to Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde. This book is a step up from the kaftka book titled Tonal Harmony. Reference forward and backward “…As we saw in Unit 2, Section 5…” are helpful.
And a very sane, practical, colorful, well-footnoted, sensitive and authoritative one. The material covered in the book is sufficiently comprehensive and well-enough set out to enhance the listening experience of many a Classical Net reader.

The first three Units of the book are designed to be taught sequentially, but instructors have the flexibility to teach the latter units in any combination and order they choose. Laurie rated it it was amazing Jan 26, The three authors Edward Aldwell died while this edition was in preparation aim is to offer a comprehensive course of study in harmony of the music of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Jul 26, Richard Pohl rated it really liked it Shelves: I never bought the workbook as this was for independent study. First the authors explain and illustrate the smallest components of Modes and Keys; eventually they look at modulation and the likes of chromatic neighbors.
Though, for all the book’s highly authoritative and academic tone and approach, it’s not a slog. David rated it liked it Jan 15, Very little is introduced and taught that doesn’t originate in music of the giants of the period… musical examples abound, two, three, four, schxchter more to every page, or well over This is not an “ordinary” theory textbook.
The style of exposition clear and yet personal.
As is the very notion adaell breaking the totality of the material goice such nicely-planned and clearly-numbered Units and Sections. Production is to a very high standard: Shaoliang Hua rated it did not like it Feb 06, Ron Dinkins rated it it was amazing Jun 25, Rather, how music from the common practice period works the ways it does in terms of harmony.
Colleen Mckenzie rated it really liked it Dec 22, Davi rated it it was amazing Mar 20, Jun 26, Joe rated it liked it Shelves: There are plenty of exercises on the accompanying website, and footnotes etc where additional explanation or illustration would be obtrusive in the body of the text.
If you are looking for a single volume, that’s unpretentious and comprehensive, extremely well written and likely to accord with your understanding of the importance of harmony in musical history, this one can be recommended wholeheartedly.

The index is excellent. It is unnecessarily verbose and complex. The experience of the authors enables them to predict areas that might cause difficulty and slow the pace; so they increase the illustrative examples accordingly to help.
