Publisher: New York : Continuum, 2010.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
This is a vivid, expressive, and innovative study of how the great composers in classical and rock music deploy subtle musical signs in ingenious ways. Whether it's a song by Brahms or by the Boss, a serenade by Mozart or a ballet by John Harbison, music radiates a diverse spectrum of meaningful signs, hidden in plain hearing. To enjoy the interplay of musical signs, it helps to recognize them in the first place.  Read more...
