My husband was the one for whom I bought this. He is very happy with it and happy that I was able to find it at a reasonable price. It is rare to be able to obtain a conductor’s score for a major orchestral piece by a living composer. Most of the time they are only available to performing organizations on rental.

It is to the credit of John Adams and his publisher that this excellent score is available at a modest price. Harmoniielehre a score for study purposes and an expensive ‘full score’ at that, this is a big disappointment for the simple fact that instead of actual printed music, half the time the bars are replaced with repeat signs.

Harmonielehre (full score)

And there are lots of them. This makes it far more difficult to study whether along to a recording or on its own as you’ll find you have to continuously refer to previous measures which do contain the actual notation to see what the other instruments are currently playing. And it’s not even as if this was to save space as the measures with repeat signs are often the same size as measures with actual notation.


I feel this was just lazy or maybe to save ink, who knows. Do the publishers expect readers to have photographic memories of what each and every instrument was playing previously? It seems they do. When I study a score along to a recording, I like to look over, up and down and across the page to get an essence of the orchestration and articulations being played.

And on such a large sized publication as this, it’s a lot more difficult to be able see what the flutes are doing at the same time as say the basses so you’ll rarely be able to see what all instruments are doing at any one time and so you will find that when you gaze from one instrument to another you will need to see actual printed music, but here instead you’ll more than likely see a repeat sign, meaning you’ll have to pause the recording, look back a few bars and then continue.

In my opinion, repeat signs are fine for conductor’s scores or individual player’s parts but for relatively expensive ‘full’ study scores, this is not acceptable.

However, as I think the only printed score out there for John Adam’s masterwork, this is better than nothing at harmonielehrs and at least everything is nice and clear and easy to read and I would still recommend it on that basis. But it’s often a pain to follow. It has been a pleasure to have I’m a relative novice when it comes to art music, but this is without a doubt one of my favorite pieces.

It has been harmonieleyre pleasure to have this score and to have my mentor teach me how he might conduct it. I remember a comment from a French Horn player in the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra about the difficult of playing this piece: One person found this helpful. John Adams’ “Harmonielehre” is quite the expansive piece of music. Broad, gargantuan brass melodies and chords accompanied by frantic woodwind and string whirling dervishes – it is an enjoyable and mesmerizing experience just listening to it.


The score is just as expansive and very daunting upon first laying eyes upon it. It is rather large, and each page is clear and easy to follow. The major difficulty in the score which seems to be typical of all John Adams scores is that the music Adams writes is sometimes so densely packed with notes that it is not always clear as to which instrument has the melody. This, however, is not a complaint.

I wouldn’t want Adams to write his music in any other way.

Another challenging aspect to the score is the various shifts in tempi and time signatures which are quite frequent, and there is an extraordinarily high degree of individual interpretation where the conductor is concerned.

In terms of performance, only a conductor of the highest calibre who knows the ins and outs of such a piece of music could take on this work of enormous breadth and emotion. I love this score.
