Description

Product Description

This fifth edition of Harmony marks the forty-fifth year of its successful use.

Years after Walter Piston''s death, his students and their students can still take great pride in the enduring vitality of his teaching. By now it is plain that the book is different from what it used to be, but its essential approach and its basic substance remain as they were.

The major departure of the fourth edition was the addition of seven new chapters, including four on the complicated subject of harmony after common practice, which had not been discussed in the first three editions. However, then as now, the core of the book remains the exhaustive treatment of common-practice harmony, the subject of most one-year or two-year courses in tonal harmony. In the present edition, the entire text has been carefully revised with a view to clarifying the language and illuminating the essential principles. Wherever possible, the text has been "opened up" to allow the reader to adopt a more leisurely pace through what had been a terse and detailed presentation. The results will also be perceived in the more spacious design of this edition.

New exercises have been added to the early chapters as well as some fresh music examples. There is an entirely new chapter on musical texture that serves to clear up many difficult points encountered by the beginning student. Another innovation is the rearrangement of the chapters dealing with harmonic rhythm and the structure of the phrase as well as the inclusion of a short summary of analytical method.

This book has long been known as an introductory textbook, but because of its comprehensive range, it also serves as an invaluable reference book. The acquisition of an consummate knowledge of composers'' practice―the goal of any study of harmony―is admittedly an endless assignment. Ars longa, vita brevis, but consolation may be derived from the thought that intellectual and artistic rewards are to be found at all stages along the way.

About the Author

Walter Piston was Professor of Music at Harvard University. An outstanding composer whose many works have been performed by leading orchestras and chamber ensembles both in the US and abroad, he received the Pulitzer Prize twice for distinguished musical composition.

Piston''s Harmony is simply a classic. I used the 3rd edition in college. This addition is updated to expand on a few topics and there are some additional chapters. Be aware, this is an entry level college text. You need to know how to read music and should have some basic understanding of chordal harmony before you begin. There are now other books on theory that many universities use. However, you can''t go wrong with Piston.

Excellent Book

I''m learning music theory and this book was incredibly helpful. While I supplemented my learning with Youtube videos to better understand some of the concepts, this book served as my roadmap; I took major leaps forward in learning. Highly recommended.

If you are a music student, or know some theory and want more, or you''re new to theory--THIS IS THE BOOK!!! It doesn''t matter what instrument(s) you play. Extremely readable, clear and complete. The author starts with the basics and takes the mystery out of scales, key signatures, dominant chords, 7th chords, etc. Each section starts with a concise, to-the-point definition of the topic and incorporates musical examples to show you what it''s all about. I was very pleased that I could figure out a melody in a selected key in just the first few days after receiving the book. My group instructor was shocked! This book is worth more than the modest price being charged. Plus, Amazon got the book to me within 3 days, in perfect, shrink-wrapped condition.

This book is a classic, it''s highly readable. In fact, I read the whole book as bedtime reading. Though, to be fair, I have a fairly extensive musical education. Even so, it tied up a lot of loose ends for me very easily. It''s also available fairly inexpensively used.
