J. G. ALBRECHTSBERGER'S COLLECTED WRITINGS ON THOROUGH-BASS, HARMONY, & COMPOSITION FOR SELF-INSTRUCTION. With explanatory examples, systematically arranged, with a short guide to full-score playing, and a description of all instruments employed. (This book teaches the lost art of counterpoint known to the old masters of European composition.) Johann Georg Albrechsberger (1736-1809) was one of the most learned and skillful contrapuntalists of his age. Much admired by Mozart and Haydn, he became the teacher of Beethoven, Hummel, Joseph Eybler, Joseph Weigl, and others. He was court organist in Vienna for 20 years before becoming choirmaster at St. Stephen's Cathedral. This textbook on composition will remain a work of major importance by reason of its clarity and minuteness of detail. (Also available here: Beethoven’s Studies in Composition, Haydn’s lessons with Beethoven, Cherubini's Treatise on composition, Mozart’s Lessons with Thomas Attwood, Bach’s...
