Summary: This landmark collection of over 200 complete musical compositions and movements, ranging in time from the Middle Ages to the present, contains a large and varied body of music for study. In addition to providing ample material for both a full-year course in the analysis of musical forms and a one-semester course in twentieth-century techniques, the book offers first- and second-year music theory classes a wealth of illustrations of chords, voice-leading techniques, moreand forms--plus some material for figured-bass realization and score reading. Because the book consists primarily of music and 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.


  • The anthology offers more than 200 complete musical compositions, ranging from the Middle Ages through the present, giving instructors a wide variety of selections from which to choose. Though arranged chronologically, the pieces can be taught in the order that best suits the instructor's needs.
  • NEW!-Beethoven's Sonata for Violin and Piano ("Spring") and the scherzo from Piano Sonata No. 15 in D major return in this edition.
  • NEW!-In response to reviewer requests, this edition provides more music for instruments other than piano.
  • NEW!-A new glossary of foreign terms and expressions adds cultural context and defines relevant vocabulary for students.
  • Burkhart includes works from more than 50 different composers, providing a thorough sampling of styles for comparison.
  • A separate appendix on jazz contains examples of both blues and "rhythm changes," and includes music by Charlie Parker and John "Dizzy" Gillespie. A second appendix gives 33 chorale harmonizations by Bach and eight other composers.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • NEW!-Approximately 25 percent new musical selections (over 50 total) appear in this edition. Overall, the text has been revised to offer instructors and students an updated and comprehensive resource, while maintaining a large, strong group of core pieces.
  • NEW!-The new edition includes fourteen new composers, almost half of those from the 20th century. New composers include Messiaen, Ligeti, Reich, Adams, and many others. The newly added composers contribute more diversity, with five women (Hildegard of Bingen, Elisabeth Jacquet de La Guerre, Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel, Clara Schumann, and Amy Beach) and a non-Western composer (Toru Takemitsu of Japan) included in this edition.
  • NEW!-Music for small ensembles has been somewhat increased, most notably by movements from three winds pieces--Mozart's Divertimento for Wind Sextet, Stravinsky's Octet, and Ligeti's Ten Pieces for Wind Quintet. The representation of music for wind instruments is further strengthened by Mozart's Clarinet Concerto in A major, first movement.
  • NEW!-Other notable new pieces include the Prelude and Fugue in E Major from Well Tempered Clavier, Book II; the dramatic chorus "Wretched Lovers" from Handel's Acis and Galatea; the first movement of Haydn's Piano Sonata in C Sharp minor; the first movement of Beethoven's String Quartet No. 2 ("Rasumovsky"); six of Brahms's Variations on a Theme of Schumann; Messiaen's Quartet for the End of Time, first movement; two movements from Stravinsky's Agon; and an aria from Adams's Nixon in China. less
