Krämer/Dings: Lexikon Musiktheorie
Musik Theory from A(bbreviatur) to Z(wöltonmusik)
Thanks to his Lexikon Musiktheorie, the knowledgeable author Thomas Krämer fills a gap that was open for far too long. He explains all standard concepts from such typical disciplines of music theory as harmony, counterpoint and thoroughbass in a succinct and easily comprehensible manner, often exploring stylistic and historical aspects as well. The spectrum of the contents has been deliberately expanded through excursions into domains such as formal design, new compositional methods and jazz theory - where co-author Manfred Dings’ special knowledge comes in handy. Providing vivid visual enhancements are the many short music examples that provide an additional elucidation to nearly every key word.
