Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Hindemith's star has been waning for about a generationa fate also suffered by J. S. Bach after his death. This excellent, scholarly book should help restore some of the luster. The author, associate professor of music theory at Indiana University, uses such advanced interpretive methodologies as Schenkerian and Fortean analyses persuasively to critique Hindemith's work. While the complexities of the analyses may at times overwhelm lay readers, the prose style is engaging and comprehensible throughout. For music students, this book will be an essential source, as it fills a major lacuna in Hindemith studies. A detailed chronology is included. Highly recommended. Larry Lipkis, Music Dept., Moravian Coll., Bethlehem, Pa.
