Dynamics of Harmony by George Pratt
Book DescriptionThis is a readable and imaginative book presenting, with infectious enthusiasm, a sensible simplification of the main processes of classical harmony in the Bach-Schubert period. George Pratt's explanations of concepts such as 'real' and 'substitute' chords. of false distinctions between 'major' and 'minor' and of the simple basis of seemingly complex chromatic harmony enables readers to grasp the principles of harmonic progression, and to see most progressions as a form of 'dominant-powered' movement. He focuses his study on Bach chorales, Mozart piano sonatas, and a Schubert song cycle, thereby providing depth, variety and a realistic sense of a context of 'real music' to his explanations and to the exercises. But he also offers the reader an immediate invitation to apply the same principles to an immense range of musical literature from Monteverdi to Scott Joplin.

Aural Awareness, Hardback (May 1998)» View all books by George Pratt
Traditional aural training is heavily biased towards the perception and identification of pitch and rhythm. This book argues that much of this area of the subject can best be worked on alone. It demonstrates how every student can make some encouraging progess in these aspects of music.
