Hartenberger-Cambridge Companion to Percussion - Product Information

Percussion music is both the oldest and most recent of musical genres and exists in diverse forms throughout the world. The Cambridge Companion to Percussion by Russell Hartenberger explores percussion and rhythm from the perspectives of performers, composers, conductors, instrument builders, scholars, and cognitive scientists. Topics covered include percussion in symphony orchestras from the nineteenth century to today and the development of percussion instruments in chapters on the marimba revolution, the percussion industry, drum machines, and the effect of acoustics. Chapters also investigate drum set playing and the influences of world music on Western percussion, and outline the roles of percussionists as composers, conductors, soloists, chamber musicians, and theatrical performers. Developments in scientific research are explored in chapters on the perception of sound and the evolution of musical rhythm. This book will be a valuable resource for students, percussionists, and all those who want a deeper understanding of percussion music and rhythm.

This is a great book!

Comments:

I really enjoyed reading this book and am amazed at the variety of chapters. I learned a lot about the current and possible future state of affairs in the areas of symphonic, chamber, solo, and electronic percussion. There was great information on the percussion industry, drum set, Steve Reich, and the lives of solo percussionists. I will be using some of the references in my own research. The only thing bad I can say about this book is that it is too short, I would love to see ever more (greed on my part). It is extremely well written and edited and is a very fast read. I will be reading it over and over in the future. I would recommend it to anyone interested in percussion.
