About the Author

Robert S. Hatten is Professor of Music Theory in the Indiana University School of Music. He is editor of the series Musical Meaning and Interpretation.


This remarkable book should be seized upon by everyone looking to brush up their Ludwig. . . . Written so well, and with so little resort to classical music jargon, that it can be read in short amusing stretchesor long, engrossing sections. Read a few pages and you, too, can be humming him now.
