While a very few of these excerpts could conceivably be achieved through class participation, most are simply too complex, and class time would erode quickly into rehearsing the printed examples.
Ades should have saved Simeone and Ringwald for the chapter on jazz harmonization and favored examples from the standard repertoire instead. The excerpts are identified only in the broadest terms – by the general title of the piece, without movement name or number, and without measure numbers. This is a catastrophic and arrangging omission.
In virtually every lesson prep I found myself staring at multiple score fragments of bars, with a handful of lyrics sometimes only a single word in the choral parts, marked only by, say, “Prokofiev, Alexander Nevsky ,” “Handel, The Messiah ,” “Haydn, The Creation ,” with no further information as to where exactly in these monumental works the excerpt falls. This was only complicated by the fact that All lyrics are printed in English, not in the original languages.
Not only does this prevent the students from seeing how composers actually set text to music, it further complicates the business of identifying where a mystery excerpt falls in a multi-movement work.

In some cases, as with the obscure Respighi PrimaveraI simply had to give up and move on. So it’s not an atranging textbook, but it is at times a highly inconvenient one. Perhaps it’s the best available; but if I teach the course again, I’ll spend some time shopping around for something better.
