✏Thinking Musically Book Summary : The cornerstone of the Global Music Series, Thinking Musically incorporates the sounds and traditions of world cultures to establish a conceptual framework for exploring musical diversity. Designed for undergraduates with little or no background in music, the book explores the fundamental elements of music - including rhythm, pitch in melodic and harmonic relationships, and form - and examines how they vary globally from culture to culture. Thinking Musically also discusses the importance of musical instruments, describing their significance in a culture's folklore, religion and history. The text considers the various cultural influences that shape music and the way we experience it - gender, ethnicity, mass media, and social movements (e.g. westernization, nationalism, and acculturation). Thinking Musically includes activities designed to build critical listening and individual study skills and is packaged with two 80-minute CDs that feature selections from a wide varietyof musical cultures.
📒Thinking Musically ✍ Uri Bram
✏Thinking Musically Book Summary : In a world full of discord and disharmony, everyone agrees that music basically rocks. But few of us know the why, the how or the what of music: why certain songs sound inherently sad, how singers and musicians find a harmony or improvise in a jam session, or the mathematical patterns that determine everything from the spacing of piano keys to the thickness of guitar strings. Thinking Musically is the book that shows you how music "works," without tying you up in formal musical training. Using clear, everyday language and simple analogies, this book will give you the magic of music.
📒Bach ✍ Christoph Wolff
✏Bach Book Summary : The noted Bach scholar Christoph Wolff offers in this book new perspectives on the composer's life and remarkable career. Uncovering important historical evidence, the author demonstrates significant influences on Bach's artistic development and brings insight on his work habits, compositional intent, and the musical traditions that shaped Bach's thought. Wolff reveals a composer devoted to an ambitious and highly individual creative approach, one characterized by constant self-criticism and self-challenge, the absorption of new skills and techniques, and the rethinking of riches from the musical past. Readers will find analyses of some of Bach's greatest music, including the B Minor Mass, important cantatas, keyboard and chamber compositions, the Musical Offering, and the Art of Fugue. Discussion of how these pieces "work" will be helpful to performers--singers, players, conductors--and to everyone interested in exploring the conceptual and contextual aspects of Bach's music. All readers will find especially interesting those essays in which Wolff elaborates on his celebrated discoveries of previously unknown works: notably the fourteen "Goldberg" canons and a collection of thirty-three chorale preludes. --From publisher's description.
📒The Thought Of Music ✍ Lawrence Kramer
✏The Thought of Music Book Summary : What, exactly, is knowledge of music? And what does it tell us about humanistic knowledge in general? The Thought of Music grapples directly with these fundamental questions—questions especially compelling at a time when humanistic knowledge is enmeshed in debates about its character and future. In this third volume in a trilogy on musical understanding that includes Interpreting Music and Expression and Truth, Lawrence Kramer seeks answers in both thought about music and thought in music—thinking in tones. He skillfully assesses musical scholarship in the aftermath of critical musicology and musical hermeneutics and in view of more recent concerns with embodiment, affect, and performance. This authoritative and timely work challenges the prevailing conceptions of every topic it addresses: language, context, and culture; pleasure and performance; and, through music, the foundations of understanding in the humanities. The publisher gratefully acknowledges the Joseph Kerman Endowment of the American Musicological Society, funded in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

📒Poetry And The Thought Of Song In Nineteenth Century Britain ✍ Elizabeth K. Helsinger
✏Poetry and the Thought of Song in Nineteenth Century Britain Book Summary : In arguing for the crucial importance of song for poets in the long nineteenth century, Elizabeth Helsinger focuses on both the effects of song on lyric forms and the mythopoetics through which poets explored the affinities of poetry with song. Looking in particular at individual poets and poems, Helsinger puts extensive close readings into productive conversation with nineteenth-century German philosophic and British scientific aesthetics. While she considers poets long described as "musical"—Alfred, Lord Tennyson, Gerard Manly Hopkins, Emily Brontë, and Algernon Charles Swinburne—Helsinger also examines the more surprising importance of song for those poets who rethought poetry through the medium of visual art: Dante Gabriel Rossetti, William Morris, and Christina Rossetti. In imitating song’s forms and sound textures through lyric’s rhythm, rhyme, and repetition, these poets were pursuing song’s "thought" in a double sense. They not only asked readers to think of particular kinds of song as musical sound in social performance (ballads, national airs, political songs, plainchant) but also invited readers to think like song: to listen to the sounds of a poem as it moves minds in a different way from philosophy or science. By attending to the formal practices of these poets, the music to which the poets were listening, and the stories and myths out of which each forged a poetics that aspired to the condition of music, Helsinger suggests new ways to think about the nature and form of the lyric in the nineteenth century.
