Years after Walter Piston's death, his students and their students can still take great pride in the enduring vitality of his teaching. By now it is plain that the book is different from what it used to be, but its essential approach and its basic substance remain as they were.The major departure of the fourth edition was the addition of seven new chapters, including four on the complicated subject of harmony after common practice, which had not been discussed in the first three editions. However, then as now, the core of the book remains the exhaustive treatment of common-practice harmony, the subject of most one-year or two-year courses in tonal harmony. In the present edition, the entire text has been carefully revised with a view to clarifying the language and illuminating the essential principles. Wherever possible, the text has been "opened up" to allow the reader to adopt a more leisurely pace through what had been a terse and detailed presentation. The results will also be perceived in the more spacious design of this edition.New exercises have been added to the early chapters as well as some fresh music examples. There is an entirely new chapter on musical texture that serves to clear up many difficult points encountered by the beginning student. Another innovation is the rearrangement of the chapters dealing with harmonic rhythm and the structure of the phrase as well as the inclusion of a short summary of analytical method.This book has long been known as an introductory textbook, but because of its comprehensive range, it also serves as an invaluable reference book. The acquisition of an consummate knowledge of composers' practice--the goal of any study of harmony--is admittedly an endless assignment. Ars longa, vita brevis, but consolation may be derived from the thought that intellectual and artistic rewards are to be found at all stages along the way.… (més)

To say that I am starting to read this is a bit of a stretch, because it is a textbook rather than something that one reads and sets down. But, I wanted to get some music theory into my reading list, so here it is.

I was given this 1944 printing of this book about 40 years ago by a friend who saw my interest in learning music. Now I am starting to make a more serious study of music theory. Here goes.

Here is a foundation for studying music theory. It is not a how-to text really, but benefits those engaged in learning the processes through music is notated. Can be considered very boring, or a necessary evil. Can also be regarded as the window through which all written music is seen, however distant. ( )

What are the harmonic materials used by composers? Common practices in composition which emerged in the 18th and 19th century are reported.
The work simply begins with the scales and intervals (the unit of harmony), through triads, progression, tonality (keys) and modality (scales), to the chords of the sixth--the figured bass. At this point, the work proceeds to the construction of harmonic phrases, elaborating on the modulations, secondary dominants, irregular resolutions, and the available chord sequences.
This is not a work for the faint-hearted and it is essential to have a keyboard at hand. Little absorption will be possible without practicums. For example, "Triads in the first inversion are called chords of the sixth, the characteristic interval being the sixth caused by the inversion of the third." [44] The vertical sonority cannot be understood by looking at these words.
