Conceived as an introduction to various analytical techniques applicable to 20th century music, this valuable book is written in a direct and clear style, and includes numerous musical examples and practical exercises. Free from jargon and the abstruse mathematical equations that characterize so many works of a speculative nature, this lucid study uses masterpieces of twentieth-century music as a basis for exhibition and analysis. The text is organized in four units. The first focuses on aspects of musical structure such as the rhythm, texture, timbre, shape and relationship of tonal music with the music of our time. The second and third are concerned with the structure of heights (sets of height classes and serial music, respectively). The fourth, finally, contains a study of the music of the post-war generation. Starting from the premise that the perception of a work of art is a personal matter, the author does not pretend to teach the way to listen or analyze contemporary music. On the contrary, its aim is that the reader can make a more informed listening thanks to a better understanding of the way in which musical materials are used to achieve effects as sonic as expressive.
