In this comprehensive and definitive survey of current notation procedures, Kurt Stone has brought order to a field traditionally fraught with confusion and idiosyncrasy. He not only describes and recommends new methods for notating modern music, thereby establishing standard procedures for the present and future, but integrates them with traditional practices still in use. The result is a guide to all forms of notation used in serious music today.
Kurt Stone has served in an editorial capacity with many of the major music publishers in the United States. He has written many articles on notation for dictionaries and periodicals.
