Contemplating Music Book Review:

Contemplating Music is a book for all serious music lovers. Here is the first full-scale of ideas and ideologies in music over the past forty years; a period during which virtually every aspect of music was transformed. With this book, Joesph Kerman establishes the place of music study firmly in the mainstream of modern intellectual history. He treats not only the study of the history of Western art music--with which musicology is tradtionally equated--but also sometimes vexed relations between music history and other fields: music theory and analysis, ethnomusicology, and music criticism. Kerman sees and applauds a change in the study of music towarda critical orientation, As examples, he presents a fascinating vignettes of Bach research in the 1950's and Beethoven studies in the 1960's. He sketched the work of prominent scholars and theorists: Thurston Dart, Charles Rosen, Leonard B. Meyer, Heinrich Schenker, Miltion Babbit, and many others. And he comments on such various subjects as the amazing absorption of Stephen Foster's songs into the cannons of black music, the new intensity of Verdi research, controversies about performance on historical instruments, and the merits and demerits of The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians. Comtemplating Music is fulled with wisdom and trenchant commmentary. It will spark controversy among musicologists of all stripes and will give many musicians and amateurs an entirely new perspective on the world of music.

Sixteenth Century Polyphony A Basic For The Study Of Counterpoint Book Review:

A. Tillman Merritt graduated from the University of Missouri in 1924 and was the first recipient of a new degree, Bachelor of Fine Arts, in 1926. That autumn he came to Harvard as a graduate student in music; recognition of his unusual talent was immediate. In February, 1927, he was asked to be Walter Piston's teaching assistant in music theory. This book is intended to be an introduction and guide to the early study of counterpoint, and deals with the construction of the single line and with the combination of two lines, three lines, and four lines.

Mottola s Cyclopedic Dictionary of Lutherie Terms Book Review:

The dictionary intends to provide conventional spelling and short descriptions of the most common terms used in modern lutherie (construction of stringed musical instruments) as well as historical terminology that a modern luthier may come across in plans and other media. Luthiers, musicians, and others that read or write about stringed musical instrument construction should find it useful. Lutherie beginners who are attempting to navigate a mass of unfamiliar terminology will find the dictionary particularly useful. Use of the dictionary will increase the rate of understanding for the new luthier. As with any such work appearing in book form there is a trade off between completeness and accessibility. Although it certainly is possible to include a lot more terms than currently appear, doing so would make for a larger and more expensive book and it would make looking up terms more time consuming. The number of terms presented offer a good balance.

Tuning Timbre Spectrum Scale Book Review:

Tuning, Timbre, Spectrum, Scale focuses on perceptions of consonance and dissonance, and how these are dependent on timbre. This also relates to musical scale: certain timbres sound more consonant in some scales than others. Sensory consonance and the ability to measure it have important implications for the design of audio devices and for musical theory and analysis. Applications include methods of adapting sounds for arbitrary scales, ways to specify scales for nonharmonic sounds, and techniques of sound manipulation based on maximizing (or minimizing) consonance. Special consideration is given here to a new method of adaptive tuning that can automatically adjust the tuning of a piece based its timbral character so as to minimize dissonance. Audio examples illustrating the ideas presented are provided on an accompanying CD. This unique analysis of sound and scale will be of interest to physicists and engineers working in acoustics, as well as to musicians and psychologists.

Orientations Book Review:

Pierre Boulez is arguably the single most influential - and controversial - figure in the world of contemporary music. As composer, conductor and personality, his challenging views of modern developments are lent a special authority by his very high standing as an interpreter of great composers like Wagner, Debussy, Bart k and Stravinsky. This collection of writings enhances his unrivalled reputation as a lucid and compelling expositor of the modern composer's world.
