A History of Western Music (Eighth Edition)
J. Peter Burkholder, Donald Jay Grout and Claude V. PaliscaThe Eighth Edition of A History of Western Music is a vivid, accessible, and richly contextual view of music in Western culture. Building on his monumental revision of the Seventh Edition, Peter Burkholder has refined an inspired narrative for a new generation of students, placing people at the center of the story. The narrative of A History of Western Music naturally focuses on the musical works, styles, genres, and ideas that have proven most influential, enduring, and significant—but it also encompasses a wide range of music, from religious to secular, from serious to humorous, from art music to popular music, and from Europe to the Americas. With a six-part structure emphasizing the music’s reception and continued influence, Burkholder’s narrative establishes a social and historical context for each repertoire to reveal its legacy and its significance today.

Practical Approach to the Study of Form in Music
Peter Spencer and Peter M. TemkoLearning music's organizing principles . . . Approaching the study of form as an exercise in perceiving the interaction of a number of discrete musical events, Spencer and Temko's book embodies much more than a search for visual clues. Students of form develop perceptual tools that allow them to proceed from the aural experience to an understanding of the arch-principles upon which music is organized. The authors hold that the organizing principles of a given piece of music may be gleaned from studying: the internal attributes that give a section its specific identity; the functional relations between sections; the ordering of those sections.

In addition, this book provides ample material for both a full-year course in the analysis of musical forms and a one-semester course in twentieth-century techniques. Because this book takes no theoretical position, it is adaptable to any theoretical approach and to any type of curriculum, including those that combine theory study with music literature and the history of musical style.

Mozart, Franz Schubert, Robert Schumann, Frédéric Chopin, Giuseppe Verdi, Johannes Brahms, Gabriel Fauré, Arnold Schoenberg, Sergei Prokofiev, Aaron Copland, Dmitri Shostakovich, Elliott Carter, and Milton Babbitt.

Two indexes serve as "example finders," locating by page and measure number many examples in the music of chords, harmonic and contrapuntal devices, musical forms and genres, and many other technical elements. Instructors will find this feature particularly useful to quickly find examples of what they want to teach. Each musical form (e.g., sonata form, rondo, variations, fugue, etc.) is represented by numerous examples progressing from simple to complex, providing students with a wide range of pieces to study. A glossary of foreign terms and expressions adds cultural context and defines relevant vocabulary for students. Burkhart includes works from more than 50 different composers and more than 200 complete musical compositions, providing a thorough sampling of styles for comparison and selections from which to choose.
