Editorial Reviews


By far the most extensive, intelligent, and original treatment of the concept and techniqe of variation yet produced. Sisman employs a wide range of approaches, from classical and neoclassical rhetorical theory and the most recent techniques of literary analysis to sophisticated modern methods of dealing with the music itself. (Eugene K. Wolf, University of Pennsylvania)
