A companion to Ottman's Elementary Harmony, 4/e, this enlightening volume picks up where the other leaves off, completing the studies in 18th-19th century harmony and concluding with three chapters designed as an introduction to twentieth century composition. Contains 48 new music examples from the works of many composers. These works represent a wide variety of music examples to appeal to students of piano, vocal, orchestral, choral, and more. The book provides a smooth transfer from one book to the next by reviewing the last chapter of Elementary in the first chapter of Advanced. This book also simplifies methods for working with more difficult harmonic structures, such as augmented sixth chords.TOC: (NOTE: Most chapters conclude a Summary).
