Schenkerian Analysis: Perspectives on Phrase Rhythm, Motive, and Form, Second Edition is a textbook directed at all those—whether beginners or more advanced students—interested in gaining understanding of and facility at applying Schenker’s ideas on musical structure. It begins with an overview of Schenker’s approach to music, then progresses systematically from the phrase and its various combinations to longer and more complex works. Unlike other texts on this subject, Schenkerian Analysis combines the study of multi-level pitch organization with that of phrase rhythm (the interaction of phrase and hypermeter), motivic repetition at different structural levels, and form. It also contains analytic graphs of several extended movements, separate works, and songs. A separate Instructor’s Manual provides additional advice and solutions (graphs) of all recommended assignments. This second edition has been revised to make the early chapters more accessible and to improve the pedagogical effectiveness of the book as a whole. Changes in musical examples have been carefully made to ensure that each example full supports student learning. Informed by decades of teaching experience, this book provides a clear and comprehensive guide into Schenker’s theories and their applications.

Focusing on the music of the great song composers--Schubert, Schumann, Brahms, Wolf, and Strauss--Poetry Into Song offers a systematic introduction to the performance and analysis of Lieder . Part I, "The Language of Poetry," provides chapters on the themes and imagery of German Romanticism and the methods of analysis for German Romantic poetry. Part II, "The Language of the Performer," deals with issues of concern to performers: texture, temporality, articulation, and interpretation of notation and unusual rhythm accents and stresses. Part III provides clearly defined analytical procedures for each of four main chapters on harmony and tonality, melody and motive, rhythm and meter, and form. The concluding chapter compares different settings of the same text, and the volume ends with several appendices that offer text translations, over 40 pages of less accessible song scores, a glossary of technical terms, and a substantial bibliography. Directed toward students in both voice and theory, and toward all singers, the authors establish a framework for the analysis of song based on a process of performing, listening, and analyzing, designed to give the reader a new understanding of the reciprocal interaction between performance and analysis. Emphasizing the masterworks, the book features numerous poetic texts, as well as a core repertory of songs. Examples throughout the text demonstrate points, while end of chapter questions reinforce concepts and provide opportunities for directed analysis. While there are a variety of books on Lieder and on German Romantic poetry, none combines performance, musical analysis, textual analysis, and the interrelation between poetry and music in the systematic, thorough way of Poetry Into Song.

In his works, the video artist Bjorn Melhus touches our time's most current themes: the loss of personal identity in a world of technical images and the horror vision of computer generated perfect and sexless humans. Despite these serious issues, Bjorn Melhus performs with humor and irony, triggering laughter by dealing in a playful way with the world of images and sounds created by commercial media. Being trained in the production techniques of film and television, all roles are played by Melhus himself, creating a trivial and at the same time horrific world of twins and doubles. Includes a CD-ROM.
