Harmony and Voice Leading

Author: Edward Aldwell
Publisher: Cengage Learning
ISBN: 9781337560573
Release Date: 2018-01-01
Genre: Education

A clear and accessible volume spanning the entire theory course, HARMONY AND VOICE LEADING, 5th Edition, begins with coverage of basic concepts of theory and harmony and moves into coverage of advanced dissonance and chromaticism. It emphasizes the linear aspects of music as much as the harmonic, and introduces large-scale progressions--linear and harmonic--at an early stage. In the fifth edition, starting with Unit 4, the upper- and lower-case system of Roman numeral analysis has been incorporated to facilitate students’ recognition of chord quality. In addition, Schenker’s notion of linear progressions--an important concept in later, more advanced work in tonal analysis--is informally introduced in Unit 11.
