A clear and comprehensive volume spanning the entire theory course, the fourth edition of Harmony and Voice Leading begins with coverage of basic concepts of theory and harmony and moves into coverage of advanced dissonance and chromaticism.
It emphasizes the linear aspects of music as much as the harmonic, and introduces large-scale progressions–linear and harmonic–at an early stage.
The fourth edition now includes a chapter introducing species counterpoint and integrates that material into the rest of the text. A new premium web site for students will provide interactive, guided exercises for new material covered in each unit.
The instructor’s companion site will include “Guidelines for Instructors,” a new instructor’s manual written by the authors.

The musical examples are drawn primarily from masterpieces of concert repertoire, but a few abstract pieces composed by the authors are also included.

Top Reviews Most recent Top Reviews. There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. A brain strain but brilliant.
This text is extremely deep and challenging. I did find it irritating how the authors chose to abandon some conventions. Most irritating was the use of upper case Roman numerals for all chords regardless of quality. A barrier to learning for me, as the subject matter is difficult svhachter without having to deal with that quirk. The authors do explain their reasons for this, but it’s a pain in the butt. Additionally there are other labelings of certain types of progressions that I found a bit aldwelll.
I’ve used a few theory books in my career, but this one is aldwel far the most in-depth and challenging. If you are required to take theory and this is your text for the course, stand by, you are in for a ride.
If you have an excellent professor I didit’s do-able. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. The fourth edition of Aldwell and Schachter remains the best available reference for writing harmony. The organization of the chapters makes this book perfect for when you want ideas for how to harmonize a particular note or phrase. I imagine this would also be a great text for students of harmony as well.
The explanations are clear, and the examples are all “good music”, mostly from before I recommend the CD as well, since the examples are performed well on it. Great Book for hamrony is interested in self-learning. The best book I have found to explain the foundation of music theory.
All the others on Amazon are worthless compared to this one plus I can trade it in for almost full price because this is the book every good conservatory uses in the USA. Buy and study this book it will help your skill set immeasurably. The primary strength of this book is the way in which it structures the theory curriculum. Early schachtfr, the authors effectively impress the importance of voice leading as a basis for harmony.
Even within the first few units, students begin to distance their analytical thinking from the chord-to-chord recognition-based approach popular among other hramony. The authors dispense with that silly pedantic harmony “flowchart” many other texts use.
In later chapters, they present meaningful analysis of pretty complex chromaticism for a survey textbook; the units on sequences and voice exchanges are especially interesting. The authors consistently choose excellent examples, and their analysis is always first rate.
By the end of the book, students are ready to begin Schenkerian analysis and upper-level theory curriculum. The book’s shortcomings concern the style of prose and the flow of topics within individual units. Each chapter adlwell a kind of bullet-point list, lending a kind of taxonomic organization to individual topics that can be hard to follow. Harmont of the more complex topics, like suspensions, are rather convoluted. Students reading the book can easily feel overwhelmed and may have a hard time sorting out the important information from the many hatmony.
Also, this book is, as the title suggests “Harmony and Ladwell Leading.
The book also concerns the tonal system only with one rather rushed tangent on sixteenth century counterpoint ; there is no discussion of twentieth century music, such as you might find in many similar textbooks designed for the standard four-semester sequence. While this is not a shortcoming of the book per se, it does mean that in order to use the book for a standard theory sequence, the instructor will need to supplement this text with outside sources which is probably a good idea anyway.
Still, I recommend this book highly for intellectually inquisitive students. The authors don’t dumb down the subject. They do an excellent job structuring the curriculum so as to build a strong foundation for students in theory.
