WEBER, (G.) An Attempt at a Systematically Arranged Theory of

Musical Composition. Translated from the 3d German edition, with
Notes, by J. F. Warner. 2d ed. 2 vols. roy. 8vo, $5. Boston, 1846
The distinguishing characteristic of this work is, that it is a theory of musical compo

sition conformable to the present state of the art : a view of the rules and methods
practised by Mozart, Beethoven, Mendelssohn, and Spohr: it is unique for the copi-
ousness as well as appositeness of its musical illustrations. The treatise of Albrechts-
berger is full of antignated pedantry, and that of Cherubini wholly unworthy of his
illustrious name. In Germany, Weber's work is the standard authority. The
works of Reicha and Marx possess some peculiar merits, but they aim more at par-

ticular excellencies, while Weber aims at general and universal ones. WARNER. Rudimental Lessons in Music Containing the Primary Instruction requisite for all Beginners in the Art, whether Vocal or Instrumental. 18mo, 50 cts.
