An essential partner to your music theory text, Music for Analysis, 5/e offers more than 400 pieces of music from the baroque period to the present. Selected by Thomas Benjamin, Michael Horvit, and Robert Nelson--three nationally respected composers and music theory teachers--these musical selections illustrate standard usage and idiomatic procedures. With more than 50 complete pieces and most selections of at least period length, this anthology is the perfect vehicle for analysis of style, musical idiom, small forms, tonal harmony, and contemporary techniques. The fifth edition features "Suggestions for Discussion" and "Questions for Analysis," and new selections including more pieces by Brahms, Wagner, Schumann, Liszt, and Bach. A comprehensive, up-to-the minute, 20th-century section now includes additional pieces by Schonberg, Webern, Sessions, Rouse, Horne, Prokofiev, and Macmillan.
