An Eighth Day View:
Based on a series of lectures given at Harvard in 1944 and first published in 1948, this book is a brilliant examination of the materials and concepts that are the basic building blocks of music: harmony, melody, counterpoint, and form. 390 musical examples by masterful and original classical composer Ernst Toch, who is also a renowned composer of film scores.
