Excerpt from Text-Book of Simple and Double Counterpoint: Including Imitation or Canon; Translated From the GermanThe present treatise on counterpoint must not be regarded as a more developed exposition of the ideas contained in my book, "New School of Melody", a work, which unfortunately, I erroneously entitled, "A Sketch of Counterpoint by a New Method".While that text-book - which treated particularly of the subjects, figuration and analysis, and therefore an advanced course in harmony - was in the press, the thoughts embodied in the present volume were being formulated and matured, as may be seen verified in the preface of my "Musikalische Dynamik und Agogik".The warning, so justly given by Prof. Dr. Bernhard Scholz, not to let counterpoint degenerate into harmonic figuration, I believe I have sufficiently considered. Harmonic figuration, as now taught, is an independent course coming between harmony and counterpoint; counterpoint, as it must always be, is the theory of the free invention of melody.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
