Abstract:

The twentieth century has seen a revolution in art music, with the great variety of conceptually opposed musical developments existing side by side. This book presents a study of this century's music from the point of view of its structure, without addressing collective styles, the mechanisms or techniques for sound manipulation, or the literature of the period. Rather, the essays in this book address questions of how form, timbre and texture, rhythm, line, chord, and ordering procedures are dealt with by twentieth-century composers in a wide variety of musical works from early to very recent examples.
