"Counterpoint proceeds by developing species counterpoint in the tradition of Johann Joseph Fux and his famous Gradus ad Parnassum (1725), but with attention to Schenker's more in-depth study. Everyone from beginning music theory students to composers to graduate composition students will benefit from the methods introduced here. As emphasized in the preface, readers are presented with "exercises for composition." Rather than actually teaching a student to compose, working through these exercises will improve musicianship as it applies to both composition and understanding music theory."--BOOK JACKET.

Counterpoint is the life story of Joe Harnell, Grammy and Emmy award-winning pianist, composer, arranger and conductor. He was musical director for such stars as Frank Sinatra, Maurice Chevalier, Marlene Dietrich, Judy Garland, Peggy Lee and Pearl Bailey, as well as The Mike Douglas Show. His smash hit instrumental record of Fly Me to the Moon was a landmark, setting a new standard of performance in the record business. Among many others, he composed and conducted the scores for TV series like The Incredible Hulk, The Bionic Woman, and V, and also a number of movies of the week. His story is filled with revealing insights and anecdotes about the many stars and musicians he has lived and worked with, some funny, some sad, some appalling. Although his professional life ran smoothly and successfully, his perilous personal journey ran over rutted roads through three failed marriages and a tortured battle with booze, eventually emerging into the calm of sobriety and the exhilaration of a fulfilling relationship. Joes book gives the reader a new, intimately known friend, whose candor and understanding will remain in memory for years to come. Be sure to visit Joes website http://www.joeharnell.com

A Pulitzer Prize–winning critic reflects on the meaning and emotional impact of a Bach masterwork. As his mother was dying, Philip Kennicott began to listen to the music of Bach obsessively. It was the only music that didn’t seem trivial or irrelevant, and it enabled him to both experience her death and remove himself from it. For him, Bach’s music held the elements of both joy and despair, life and its inevitable end. He spent the next five years trying to learn one of the composer’s greatest keyboard masterpieces, the Goldberg Variations. In Counterpoint, he recounts his efforts to rise to the challenge, and to fight through his grief by coming to terms with his memories of a difficult, complicated childhood. He describes the joys of mastering some of the piano pieces, the frustrations that plague his understanding of others, the technical challenges they pose, and the surpassing beauty of the melodies, harmonies, and counterpoint that distinguish them. While exploring Bach’s compositions he sketches a cultural history of playing the piano in the twentieth century. And he raises two questions that become increasingly interrelated, not unlike a contrapuntal passage in one of the variations itself: What does it mean to know a piece of music? What does it mean to know another human being?

"The Craft of Modal Counterpoint" is the companion book to Benjamin's "The Craft of Tonal Counterpoint," recently republished in a second edition by Routledge. Modal counterpoint is the style of composition that was employed until the "tonal" revolution pioneered by Bach; it is the basis for most Early Music. Benjamin, a composer and pedagogue, offers a complete analysis of this important musical style. He begins by covering general aspects of the style, then covers in detail two, three, and four-part counterpoint. The Motet, an important form of vocal composition in this period, is studied separately. The book concludes with a brief anthology of key scores, 15 in all, for the student to study further. Also includes 132 musical examples.
