Shelves: toad Nice and short, really; of course it is. Out of all the books in dialogue format, this is a pretty entertaining one. Did Fux or Mann write anything else? Because it might be funny. I had to read the whole thing twice to make myself pay attention through the flowery language, but it makes me feel slightly smug to realize that the last things I arranged followed all the rules, which I knew without being formally taught them.

Jan 15, Walt Burge rated it it was amazing This is a fantastic book, which clearly articulates an approach to Baroque Counterpoint. This is a wonderful study for composers, and this book will walk you through the concepts of Counterpoint which were employed by Bach, Handel and others. I, myself, studied this book and then wrote a simple trio for Violin, Cello and Piano which during performance was taken for a Bach trio by those in attendance. The dialogue between the student and master made the book much more approachable than if it had been written like a dry textbook, and the old fashioned language was very nice.

It is amazing how Fux could make such a complicated subject seem simple, or at least understandable! I only wish the first part of the Gradus ad Parnassum had been included. Jul 24, Niek Lucassen rated it liked it Good classic work for studying the theory of counterpoint. The conversation approach makes it more than just another plain study book. The humble student does get annoying after a while, but he and his teacher really teach you the steps to Parnassus. Nov 20, Peter Cho rated it it was amazing Oh venerable master, you are my constant companion!

May 16, Zack Macomber rated it really liked it Excellent, step-by-step book on learning how to write counterpoint. Fux recommends spending 3 years working out the various species before writing free compositions. I understand why he would recommend that as this book requires time and practice to work out. I chose to do the "quick" route and just play through the examples and glean general instruction on writing counterpoint but I agree with Fux that working through the species will take considerable time and be of the most benefit.

I plan to Excellent, step-by-step book on learning how to write counterpoint. I plan to work through examples as necessary as I do contrapuntal writing in my arrangements I mainly arrange hymns and have a strong desire to arrange them contrapuntally.

The examples are not very melodic in nature but will teach you sound counterpoint writing. But do consider this is a book of exercises and not necessarily a book on writing beautiful contrapuntal works. It lays a very solid foundation for writing like Bach in the future.
