required reading for composers, theorists, and historians,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Study of Counterpoint (Paperback)
This is mostly valuable for its historical significance, but that is no mean thing, and it is worth your while working throughit--every composer and theorist should. The translator distributes his English version of Fux's "Gradus ad Parnassum" between this and "The Study of Fugue" so I recommend you pick up a copy of "The Study of Fugue" too.
