Music Analysis: An Annotated Bibliography.
One hundred and forty citations comprise this annotated bibliography of books, articles, and selected dissertations that encompass trends in music theory and k-16 music education since the late 19th century. Special emphasis is upon writings since the 1950's. During earlier development, music analysts concentrated upon the elements of music (i.e., melody, harmony, rhythm, and form). Since 1950, varying viewpoints on the teaching of music analysis have emerged, producing a surge of various analytical trends and philosophies derived from other than musical contexts. Information theory, phenomenology, and the application of computers have made the strongest impact upon music theory in recent years. Classified headings in the listing cover: 1) general discussions of music analysis, 2) the analysis of specific elements of music (melody, harmony, etc.), 3) principal trends and approaches to the subject, and 4) samples of analytic models. The headings reflect the evolution of trends within the subject. Author entries are alphabetically arranged under headings. Brief descriptive annotations are provided. (Author/SJM)
