Fred Lerdahl Publishes New Book, "Composition and Cognition"

Fred Lerdahl, Fritz Reiner Professor Emeritus of Musical Composition at Columbia University, has published Composition and Cognition through University of California Press.

"In Composition and Cognition, renowned composer and theorist Fred Lerdahl builds on his career-long work of developing a comprehensive model of music cognition. Bringing together his dual expertise in composition and music theory, he reveals the way in which his research has served as a foundation for his compositional style and how his intuitions as a composer have guided his cognitively oriented theories." For more, visit the book's website.

Congratulations Professor Lerdahl!
