it's been almost a year since i posted in this forum. i got a new job which kicked my behind for the last 8 months or so, but I'm slowly coming back to life and starting to write music again.
i'm looking for a book to give me an introduction to classical forms. not really a theory book; i studied harmony & counterpoint & stuff at school, but since i was a jazz major, i didn't really learn details about classical forms & techniques, just sweeping generalizations. i'd like to start with, you know, 18th century forms, or whatever is suggested.
since i got GPO, i've been getting more into classical music, but i find i am lacking in knowledge of form. i've learned a lot about orchestration in the last year from reading, writing, and playing with GPO. a good book on classical form will help me out.
