Appeared in Choice on 1998-09-01:
The third in a series compiled by Perone (Mount Union College) on music theory topics, this bibliography, like its predecessors, Orchestration Theory (CH, Nov'96) and Harmony Theory (CH, Sep'97), is comprehensive in scope. It not only includes classic treatises from the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries (e.g., those of Koch, Czerny, Marx, Schenker, and Forte) but also cites dissertations and standard textbooks. A "General Bibliography," composed primarily of periodical articles, serves as a useful supplement. For reasons of practicality, Perone excludes analyses of single works when such analyses deal with the work more than with the analytical process. However, detailed commentaries on individual compositions are satisfactorily indexed in Harold Diamond's Music Analyses (CH, Oct'91) and Arthur Wenk's Analyses of Nineteenth- and Twentieth-Century Music, 1940-1985 (1987). Useful primarily to faculty researchers and graduate and upper-division undergraduate music theory majors. D. Ossenkop SUNY College at Potsdam

Long Description
Perone considers all aspects of musical form and its analysis with the broadest possible historical and stylistic palette in this comprehensive bibliography. The form and analysis treatises chapters include publication, original language, English translation, reprint, and bibliographic information for book-length works (including master's theses and doctoral dissertations) that deal with questions of musical form and musical analysis in a significant way. A number of treatises that were substantially revised at some point are included in both forms. More than 2,000 entries are included in this major contribution to the study of the form and analysis of music.
