"In our time, interest in Riepel's writing has centered, justifiably, on his general theory of composition, emphasizing form and phrase structure, as presented in the first four chapters of...Anfangsgründe zur musicalischen Setzkunst. ...The most interesting and novel aspects of his theory of composition--really an essentially complete presentation of it--are contained in the first two chapters, which are translated with commentary in this book." -John Walter Hill [Introduction] This book was originally published by Pendragon Press in 2014.
