One of the most important books on contemporary music to appear in this century. Here for the first time is an orderly presentation of the harmonic procedures to be found in music of the first half of the twentieth-century. The author examines the nature of intervals in various contexts, discusses the modes and other scales employed in modern music, describes the formation and uses of chords by thirds, by fourths, and by seconds, of added-note chords and polychords; he deals with different types of harmonic motion, with harmonic rhythm and dynamic sand ornamentation, with harmonic behavior in tonality, polytonality, atonality and serial composition.

An ideal reference work. It reflects the American perception of 20th century Harmony and goes back to Persichetti's interest to Paul Hindemith own theory of harmony.

Von Ein Kunde am 29. April 1999
A better book of this kind. (But best to study scores.) One quibble: The author calls the lowest note of a secundal chord voiced in seconds its root, and so for quartal chords, and this strikes me as arbitrary and illogical. It doesn't branch from what Rameau ("branch" in English) intended by "root". Readers interested in music theory will probably also want to look at PENTATONIC SCALES FOR THE JAZZ-ROCK KEYBOARDIST by Jeff Burns.

HASH(0x93e87594) von 5 Sternen Essential for Composers and Contemporary Music Enthusiasts 27. Januar 2003
Von Matthew Henderson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Vincent Persichetti's "Twentieth Century Harmony" is a very thorough look at ways to use harmony outside of a traditional tonal context. In other words, if you are a composer and don't know all you could about how to use harmony except in tonal progressions, or if you are a listener interested in understanding twentieth century concert music, this book is for you. The book deals with the harmonic series, modes, synthetic scales, different types of chords (added note, polychords, etc.) and very specifically with different characteristics of different intervals. Littered with examples of nearly every point, it is the best education on contemporary harmony available.
Persichetti, unlike too many composers, doesn't go out of his way to use as many words as possible. He also doesn't attempt to criticize styles of music not his own in this writing; he simply gives an objective, clear, well organized series of lessons in harmony. I am a senior music composition student now, but learning much from the pages of this book.

HASH(0x93e8799c) von 5 Sternen Required reading for serious composers 6. November 2004
Von Biff Hardwell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
This is one of the most inspirational composition books I have. Every chapter will expand your horizons with clear explanations of difficult material, concise examples, and inspiring exercises. I return to this year after year when I am getting jaded with what I'm writing.

HASH(0x91fef0c0) von 5 Sternen A must have 7. Dezember 2007
Von T. R. Brecheisen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
For students of music who are like me... Who have a passion for music, a creative mind, but who do not completely understand how 20th century harmony is used ...THIS IS A MUST HAVE BOOK. Each chapter is nicely outlined and all the material is highly useful. The best part of this book are the assignments listed at the end of each chapter. You will never find a book that gives you an instant knowledge of any musical idea, and it is only through pratice and hard work that you truly understand and have the ability to apply that knowledge. By completing the (sometimes 24+) assignments after each chapter, you involve the material in your creative life, and by doing so you truly gain the information and technique of each lesson. I would give this book 6, no 45, stars of Amazon would allow me!!!!!

HASH(0x93e87a14) von 5 Sternen Clear and informative 6. August 2005
Von Music Matt - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Unquestionably one of the clearest, and most useful composition books I have ever read. This is something every composer should own. The book guides you through various aspects of modern composition and provides a TON of examples, as well as suggesting numerous pieces for further study. This book is worth double what it costs!

HASH(0x93e87da4) von 5 Sternen Already a Classic, Contemporary Classic!! (oxymoron) 14. März 2010
Von John S. Hilliard - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
I have taught music composition for over 30 years, as a composer myself. I have made this book required reading for all my student composers. I read it first when I was 18 years old and it changed my life. It's a pity that this is probably the only book around which effectively deals with the most exciting harmonic period in all of music history. The last 100 hundred years has seen a blooming colorful garden of new tonal, modal, polytonal, 12-tone tonal, and unusual scalar musics. The most interesting and beautiful music since Bach, yet no one has had the alacrity to write about it or inform us of its art and craft except the very late Persichetti. I bless him for it. This is an indispensable book for anyone interested in the anatomy of music since Debussy or in composing in the fresh musical air of our times. Yes, it is dated somewhat, it does not include minimalistic techniques, but it is still the best book on "modern" harmony one can find. I recommend it without prevarication. Modern music is already a century old, and still not appreciated. But classic modern this is! It is a delight.
