Bartók's classic Hungarian Folk Music, long out of print in English, remains the standard study of a single folk musical culture. This new edition of a major work in ethnomusicology is enriched by Benjamin Suchoff's research on Bartók's notes, analyses, and observations in the New York Archive of Bartók Estate, and the volume contains: —the history of Hungarian ethnomusicology. —a discussion of the Bartók-Kodály relationship. —a comparative overview of Bartokian and other Hungarian approaches to the systematic classification of Hungarian musical folklore, —a review of related literature with emphasis on variant relationships based on data extracted from source materials published as recently as 1979, and —previously unavailable or new data on Bartók's biography, research methods, and approach to musical composition. The volume also includes a tabulation of material, compiled in accordance with Bartók's innovative procedure which first reached the scholarly public in the composer's 4-volume study, Yugoslav Folk Music. A computerized lexico-graphical index of themes is provided. The Bartók texts and the music examples have been enriched by the addition of Zoltán Kodály's annotations. Clarification, where needed, is achieved through the comparative study of Hungarian, German, and English drafts. Previous errata have been eliminated, and symbols have been updated in accordance with Bartokian procedures of the 1940s.

"La musique baroque, au sens où on l'entend aujourd'hui, englobe des productions aussi diverses que les madrigaux de Gesualdo, les pastorales de Peri et Monteverdi, les tragi-comédies de Scarlatti et les tragédies lyriques de Rameau. La musique instrumentale recouvre des genres comme les toccatas de Merulo, les sonates en trio de Corelli ou les concertos de Vivaldi. Quant à la musique d'église, elle embrasse des styles aussi opposés que les passions de Schütz et les cantates de Bach. Peut-on légitimement amalgamer en une période stylistique unique et sous cette seule étiquette des modes d'expression musicale aussi divers ?"

David Lewin's Generalized Musical Intervals and Transformations is recognized as the seminal work paving the way for current studies in mathematical and systematic approaches to music analysis. Lewin, one of the 20th century's most prominent figures in music theory, pushes the boundaries of the study of pitch-structure beyond its conception as a static system for classifying and inter-relating chords and sets. Known by most music theorists as "GMIT", the book is by far the most significant contribution to the field of systematic music theory in the last half-century, generating the framework for the "transformational theory" movement. Appearing almost twenty years after GMIT's initial publication, this Oxford University Press edition features a previously unpublished preface by David Lewin, as well as a foreword by Edward Gollin contextualizing the work's significance for the current field of music theory.
