Studies in Music with Text
by David Lewin
I first encountered the work of the music theorist David Lewin as an advanced undergraduate. From the beginning his writing grabbed my attention, and his work has left an indelible and profound impression on my own. His curiosity, astonishing intellectual range, and deep humility serve as a continual source of inspiration. This book collates new and reprinted essays by Lewin on how music and text can illuminate each other.
