Serial or 12-tone music has proved to be an enduring 20th century style that has generated a wide range of writings. This much-needed work provides the only comprehensive, up-to-date guide to research on serial music, offering an annotated bibliography with nearly 500 citations from books and journals from 1950 to 1995.

Industry Reviews

"Vander Weg's work should be in the collection of every library supporting undergraduate and graduate studies in music. Highly recommended." -Choice
