Product description

Guide de la théorie de la musique
by Claude Abromont; Eugène de Montalembert; Philippe Fourquet; Emmanuel Oriol; Brice Pauset



With an open and new design, abundantly illustrated (more than 500 musical examples, paintings and diagrams), the Guide to Music Theory is set to occupy a central place in the musical practice of the twenty-first century. Its first part presents in a clear and concise way the essential notions to the understanding of the music (notes, durations, rhythms, scales, chords, tones, modulations, modes, nuances, ornaments.) And finally offers freedom of city to many topics less often discussed as twentieth-century music, jazz, computer music, ancient notation, the history of harmonic thought or the evolution of temperaments. Without forgetting non-Western musical traditions, The Guide for "Theorists" presents in a second part for the first time in a chronological form the many authors who have contributed to the development of language and musical practice over the centuries, whether theoreticians, composers, famous, anonymous , even mythical. Finally, an inventory of essential vocabulary and a set of practical tables summarize the answers to the most frequent questions: chronology, terminology, modes, figures, harmonic sounds, neumes, octave conventions, dance rhythms; while many indexes, such as the visual index linking the current solfegic symbols to the concepts studied, allow rapid access to the different information. Encouraging brief consultation as well as in-depth study. An irreplaceable working tool combining pedagogy, encyclopedia and synthesis, this guide is intended for music lovers as well as conservatoire students, students or researchers. Author and designer of the Guide to the theory of music, Claude Abromont is first prize for musical analysis of the National Conservatory of Music of Paris where he teaches instrumental analysis. Author of publications in several specialized journals, he is also professor of musical culture at CNR Dijon. Author of the Guide section of "Theorists", Eugène de Montalembert holds the DNESM composition of the National Conservatory of Music of Lyon. He teaches musical culture at the ENM of Bourg-La-Reine / Sceaux, Pantin and Yerres, while taking part in numerous trainings.

In French. Paperback, used, with some bumping to the corners and grubby fore edge. Otherwise unmarked with no loose pages.

Oxfam Bookshop Balham

Balham, or 'The Gateway to the South' as Peter Sellers once called it, is a bustling corner of south west London, situated between Clapham and Tooting. The area is well known for its comedy heritage, thanks in no small part to Sellers's sketch, as well as comedy circuit staple The Bedford Arms and famous residents Arthur Smith, Andy Zaltzman and Richard Herring. The area also hosts something of a literary heritage with DBC Pierre having written his Booker prize-winning first novel in Balham. Our bookshop is located on the busy High Road just down the road from the tube station which was bombed in October 1940, an event immortalised in Ian McEwan's Atonement.
