Based on previously unpublished documents, Frank D'Accone sets the background for the musical efflorescence that occurred in Florence in the later 15th century and the emergence in the early 16th century of a new Florentine school of composers. Tracing the origins and development of musical chapels at the Cathedral and Baptistery, and the growth of musical establishments at several other churches such as the Santissima Annunziata, Santa Trinita and San Lorenzo, D'Accone examines the effect of Medici patronage, on the one hand, and the impact of Savonarola, on the other, and at the careers of individual composers such as Heinrich Isaac.
Music Theory: A Practical Handbookteaches the basics of music theory plus the vocabulary to use in harmonic and formal analysis. The book begins with no assumption of music reading skills, and progresses to include all the basic materials of music from J.S. Bach to John Cage. Based on Blatter's own three decades of teaching freshmen and sophomore music theory at Drexel University, this book is aimed at a basic introductory course in music theory, can serve for individual study, or as a review for graduate students returning to school. Drawing examples from well-known classical works, as well as folk and popular music, the book shows how theory is applied to practice. The book is divided into five parts. The first part introduces music notation, reviewing the basics of pitch, duration, and time as they are represented in written music. Part 2 introduces the concept of melody, covering the modes and scales; scale degrees; melodic form; vocal ranges; transposition; and compositional devices.Part 3 introduces harmony, dealing with harmonic progression, rhythm, and chord types. Part 4 covers the basics of counterpoint, or two melodic lines performed at once. This includes reviews of canon, cadence, and four-part style. Finally, Part 5 addresses musical form, and how form is used to structure a composition. Common forms including rondo, sonata, rounds, inventions, and fugues are covered. Music Theory: A Practical Handbookwill serve the needs of students new to music as well as to returning students wishing to attain (or renew) a basic knowledge of music fundamentals. It will be a valuable textbook for students, professors, and professionals.
