Pressestimmen

?Dr. Mann applies original ideas to solid historical facts illustrated with frequent and well-chosen musical examples....The ratings of Dr. Mann's book on this score is high: it contains 255 musical examples, many of them complete pieces....Among the latter are some works not easily available elsewhere...we have the most comprehensive and useful survey of the fugue available in any language.?-Music Library Association Notes

5.0 von 5 Sternen required reading for composers, theorists, and historians 20. September 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
The translator distributes his English version of Fux's "Gradus ad Parnassum" between this and "The Study of Counterpoint". I recommend that every composer and theorist pick up copies of Mann's "The Study of Counterpoint" and "The Study of Fugue" and work through the Fux, and that every music historian be familiar with these two works.
Also recommended: "Pentatonic Scales for the Jazz Rock Keyboardist" by Jeff Burns.

5.0 von 5 Sternen It is worth 10 times the price 31. Juli 2006
Von Hans Hummel - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Get this book, it is so great, beyond words, Alfred Mann is like the Saint of Musical theory!

What it contains is a complete study of the subject fugue - through the works of 4 theorists,

Fux, modal-style,

Marpurg, student of bach,

Albrechtsberger, teacher of Beethoven

Padre Martini, most famous theorist at the time of Mozart, and at one point the teacher of Mozart(the book contains a Mozart fugue, and the "corrections" done by Martini)

Before hand it may proove essential to know the basic theory - start with "Gradus ad Parnasum"(same author)

and get a good book of Functional Harmony as well.

After that, this book will be all you need to start fugal writing.

Good luck!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Another great music theory classic 10. Januar 2010
Von Hexagram of the Heavens - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This is the sequel to Mann's translation of part one of Fux's "Gradus ad Parnassus", (which is the section on species counterpoint, and which is a prerequisite to this book.) "The Study of Fugue" includes the best of Fux's instruction on fugue (part two of the "Gradus ad Parnassus"), plus additional material from 3 more important 18th century writers, two being the teachers of Mozart and Beethoven respectively, and one an associate of J. S. Bach.

Alfred Mann's detailed history of fugal theory makes up the first part of the book. If you combine this with the similar exposition in the first part of Knud Jeppesen's "Counterpoint", you have a wonderful overview of the history of contrapuntal music theory from the medieval period up to the dawn of romanticism.

Jeppesen's "Counterpoint" does contain a short appendix on fugue, but many details are left out. Although Jeppesen's book is a valued resource in my library, reading Mann on fugue exposes two shortcomings in Jeppesen which are not apparent to the reader of Jeppesen alone (I reviewed Jeppesen's book separately but some comments are relevant here.)

(1) Jeppesen's insistence on correcting Fux's faulty understanding of Palestrina's style (which he does in exhaustive detail) misses the point that the species exercises are only preliminaries to writing Baroque fugue, and are not really intended to reproduce Renaissance style - that is, Fux's use of Palestrina as a model is more a literary device than a practical exercise. So you can give Fux a break; Jeppesen is right about the details of Palestrina's style, but Fux's book is still valid in itself as a manual of Baroque practice.

(2) Jeppesen fails to properly or fully explain the function of the plagal and authentic modes as the organizing force behind the ranges of the four voices - soprano, alto, tenor, bass - and the huge effect that this organization had on the evolution of the fugue by in turn organizing the development of the "tonal answer". One finishes Jeppesen's book still wondering why the plagal modes existed at all; one finishes Mann's book understanding that the "twelve modes" of Glareanus (six plagal and six authentic, an expanded set of the original eight medieval "church modes" which was current in the 16th and 17th centuries) were an active part of musicians' thinking well into the 18th century, and understanding that this in turn is important to understanding fugal practice.

Each of the four 18th century authors showcased by Mann has his own repertory of fugal tricks and techniques, and they fill in each other's weak points pretty well, so it's a blessing to have them all together in one book. The fluidity of fugal practice is emphasized, and it is clear that there are lots of ways to write a fugue, and that there is no one absolute formula which must be dogmatically adhered to.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Unique! 11. Januar 2002
Von R. Machado - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
It's not very simple to find books about musical forms and composition. This is an excelent title. The text is very rich and complete and it's possible for the reader to do your own fugues. Of course is not for begginers, it's necessary that you have a good knowledge in music, including counterpoint. Counterpoint is aborded, of course, but if you'd never seen the subject, the read may be a little boring.
The good news are: If you like music, if you have studied for a long time and would like to begin with your own compositions, this is a mandatory book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great for students and enthusiasts. 16. Januar 2003
Von W. Crone - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This work, which essentially includes a large portion of work by Fux, is great for the person studying counterpoint (fugues more specifically) or the person with a deep interest in the subject. I am a student with a deep interest in the subject and I enjoy this study quite well. If your ears perk up when someone says fugue or counterpoint then check this book out!!
5.0 von 5 Sternen Thorough academic study, not a quick simple read. 15. Januar 2014

A serious, complete discussion. I was really looking for a more simple explanation, but now think that may not be possible on this topic.
