About this item

Materials and Techniques of Post-Tonal Music, Fifth Edition provides the most comprehensive introduction to post-tonal music and its analysis available.

This updated fifth edition features:

  • the introduction of several new concepts and topics, including parsimonius voice-leading, scalar transformations, the New Complexity, and set theory in less chromatic contexts;
  • expanded discussions of spectralism and electronic music;
  • timelines in each chapter, grounding the music discussed in its chronological context;
  • a companion website that provides students with links to recordings of musical examples discussed in the text and provides instructors with an instructor’s manual that covers all of the exercises in each chapter.
