The techniques used in the composition of melody and harmony presented in Paul Hindemith's The Craft of Musical Composition are used in the analysis of the clarinet and piano, a recording, and The Craft of Musical Composition were the materials used in this study. For the most part the construction of the clarinet concerto was consistent with Hindemith's laws of composition as presented in the text. Apart from the derivation of the chromatic scale, the methods and ideas of The Craft of Musical Composition--Series 1, Series 2, the classification of chords, harmonic fluctuation, melodic and harmonic degree-progressions and tonality--are valuable tools for analyzing Hindemith's music.
