Partimento and continuo playing in theory and in practice by International Orpheus Academy for Music Theory( file )
5 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 1,059 libraries worldwide
This volume is a collection of essays based on lectures given at the International Orpheus Academy for Music Theory on 'Music and Theory: Thoroughbass in Practice, Theory, and Improvisation''. Hence the point of departure was not 'Music Theory'' as such, but the interaction between music theory, music history, performance practice, aesthetics, and related sciences. This multidisciplinary approach, with the accent on the interplay between music performance and music theory, is reflected in the contributions to this book.

The Cambridge history of Western music theory by Thomas Street Christensen( Book )
35 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and held by 1,032 libraries worldwide
Publisher Description (unedited publisher data) The Cambridge History of Western Music Theory is the first comprehensive history of Western music theory to be published in the English language. A collaborative project by leading music theorists and historians, the volume traces the rich panorama of music-theoretical thought from the Ancient Greeks to the present day. Recognizing the variety and complexity of music theory as an historical subject, the volume has been organized within a flexible framework. Some chapters are defined chronologically within a restricted historical domain whilst others are defined conceptually and span historical periods. Together the thirty-one chapters present a synthetic overview of the fascinating and complex subject that is historical music theory. Richly enhanced with illustrations, graphics, examples and cross-citations, as well as being thoroughly indexed and supplemented by comprehensive bibliographies of the most important primary and secondary literature, this book will be an invaluable resource for students and scholars alike.

Rameau and musical thought in the Enlightenment by Thomas Street Christensen( Book )
21 editions published between 1993 and 2004 in English and held by 635 libraries worldwide
This is the first intellectual biography of the French composer and theorist Jean-Philippe Rameau. Rameau synthesised the vocabulary and grammar of musical practice into a concise scientific system, earning himself the popular title of 'Newton of the Arts'. Ranging widely over the musical and intellectual thought of the eighteenth century, Thomas Christensen is able to orient Rameau's accomplishments in the light of speculative and practical considerations of music theory as well as many of the scientific ideas current in the French Enlightenment. He shows how Rameau incorporates ideas ranging from neoplatonic thought and Cartesian mechanistic metaphysics to Locke's empirical psychology and Newtonian experimental science. Additional primary documents help clarify Rameau's fascinating and stormy relationship with the Encyclopedists, Diderot, Rousseau and d'Alembert [Publisher description]

1616 : the world in motion by Thomas Christensen( file )
3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 138 libraries worldwide
The world of 1616 was a world of motion. Enormous galleons carrying silk and silver across the Pacific created the first true global economy, and the first international megacorporations were emerging as economic powers. In Europe, the deaths of Shakespeare and Cervantes marked the end of an era in literature, as the spirit of the Renaissance was giving way to new attitudes that would lead to the age of revolutions. Great changes were also taking place in East Asia, where the last native Chinese dynasty was entering its final years and Japan was beginning its long period of warrior rule. Artis
