A landmark collection of over 200 complete musical compositions and movements, ranging from the Middle Ages to the present, ANTHOLOGY FOR MUSICAL ANALYSIS offers first- and second-year music theory students a wealth of illustrations of chords, voice-leading techniques, and forms, plus some material for figured-bass realization and score reading. Because this book takes no theoretical position, it is adaptable to any theoretical approach and to any type of curriculum, including those that combine theory study with music literature and the history of musical style.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"We have tried other (anthologies) over the years, but always come back to Burkhart's."

"I find the Burkhart Anthology is perfectly suited for the undergraduate theory sequence. It has a wide scope of pieces that are well-chosen for formal attributes, chord vocabularies, historical styles ... including many 20th-century selections." ... "(The introductory comments to the musical selections) are very useful, show excellent scholarship in their detail, and I have always appreciated the introductory material as the selections are brought to the class for discussion and analysis." ... "It is a better anthology for undergraduate theory than any other on the market now."

"The Burkhart Anthology remains clearly my first choice among anthologies for theory and analysis classes, ... I think of it as the standard by which I evaluate other anthologies."
