31 editions published between 1965 and 1971 in English and German and held by 1,061 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the publisher. The most celebrated book on counterpoint is Fux's great theoretical work Gradus ad Parnassum. Since its appearance in 1725, it has been used by and has directly influenced the work of many of the greatest composers. J.S. Bach held it in high esteem, Leopold Mozart trained his famous son from its pages, Haydn worked out every lesson with meticulous care, and Beethoven condensed it into an abstract for ready reference

Musicology and performance by Paul Henry Lang( Book )

10 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 637 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arriving in the United States at age twenty-seven, Hungarian-born Paul Henry Lang (1901-1991) went on to exert a powerful influence on musical life and scholarship in his adopted country for more than six decades. As professor of musicology at Columbia University, editor of the Musical Quarterly, a founder of the American Musicological Society, and chief music critic of the New York Herald Tribune, Lang became one of America's foremost musical scholars and commentators. This anthology of his previously uncollected writings includes essays written throughout his career on a full array of music subjects, as well as unpublished chapters of the book on performance practice that he was writing at the time of his death

Handel, the orchestral music : orchestral concertos, organ concertos, water music, music for the royal fireworks by Alfred Mann( Book )

10 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 522 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Perhaps best known today for his masterworks in the oratorio form such as Messiah, George Frideric Handel was also an important and innovative composer of orchestral music. His concertos and suites hold a key position in the history of the orchestra as well as in the development of Handel's own compositional technique. In his well-known Water Music and Music for the Royal Fireworks suites, for example, Handel developed a special style designed to be effective in outdoor performance, taking full advantage of his gift for the creation of grand designs and luscious harmonies. His orchestral concertos display a remarkable transitional quality, as Handel adheres to the Baroque model provided by Corelli yet also incorporates elements of the rising symphonic style. And in his organ concertos, Handel established a novel genre, one that would be widely adopted by later English composers
