The Craft of Tonal Counterpoint

Taylor & Francis, 18 sep. 2003 - 432 páginas
The Craft of Tonal Counterpoint is an introduction and workbook for the analysis and composition of tonal counterpoint. Tonal counterpoint is the basis of all classical music composition; students of music theory and composition are all required to take a course on this topic. Using examples from the music of J.S.Bach - the master of this style - the author takes students through a series of carefully graded, cumulative exercises that stress both analysis and writing. Benjamin covers chromaticism and fugal writing in exceptional detail. The exercises cover a wide range of formats, including error detection, liner pitch reduction, analysis and composition. The book also incorporates a 100-page anthology of scores and compositional models.
