    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    In the writings of Nicola Vicentino (1555) and Gioseffo Zarlino (1558) is found, for the first time, a systematic means of explaining music's expressive power based upon the specific melodic and harmonic intervals from which it is constructed. This "theory of interval affect" originates not with these theorists, however, but with their teacher, influential... more...

  • Sounding the Virtual: Gilles Deleuze and the Theory and Philosophy of Musicby Nick Nesbitt; Brian Hulse

  • Art as Music, Music as Poetry, Poetry as Art, from Whistler to Stravinsky and Beyondby Peter Dayan

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    In 1877, Ruskin accused Whistler of ?flinging a pot of paint in the public?s face?. Was he right? After all, Whistler always denied that the true function of art was to represent anything. If a painting does not represent, what is it, other than mere paint, flung in the public?s face? Whistler?s answer was simple: painting is music - or it is poetry.... more...

  • Roger Smalley: A Case Study of Late Twentieth-Century Compositionby Christopher Mark

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    How does one go about writing the history of musical composition in the late twentieth century when, on the one hand, so much of it seems impossibly fractured and disassociated, and, on the other, there has been so little certainty about what the notion of 'music history' might entail under the critiques of post-modernism? One of the most productive... more...

    For over three decades Michael Nyman's music has succeeded in reaching beyond the small community of contemporary music aficionados to a much wider range of listeners. An important element in unlocking the key to Nyman's success lies in his writings about music, which preoccupied him for over a decade from the late 1960s to the early 1980s. During... more...

  • Keys to the Dramaby Gordon Sly

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    Sonata form is fundamentally a dramatic structure that creates, manipulates, and ultimately satisfies expectation. It engages its audience by inviting prediction, association, and interpretation. That sonata form was the chief vehicle of dramatic instrumental music for nearly 200 years is due to the power, the universality, and the tonal and stylistic... more...
