While a very few of these excerpts could conceivably be achieved through class participation, most are simply too complex, and class time would erode quickly into rehearsing the printed examples.
Ades should have saved Simeone and Ringwald for the chapter on jazz harmonization and favored examples from the standard repertoire instead. The excerpts are identified only in the broadest terms - by the general title of the piece, without movement name or number, and without measure numbers.
