    How to analyse 20th-century music? in this second volume, Anthony Girard studies musical language after Debussy and brings out diverse writing techniques, offering a concise analysis, always starting with an excerpt from a score. Moreover, he has paid particular attention to the quality of the graphic presentation in order to facilitate the reading of musical examples. After a well-developed chapter on harmony (Ravel, Schönberg, Bartók, Stravinsky, Milhaud, Webern, Messiaen...), the author explores - still on a reduced scale but increasing the perspectives - the different facets of the language, melody, rhythm, research on timbre and some aspects of form, whilst proposing accessible tools for certain kinds of music reputed to be 'difficult', whether it be Prokofiev, Varèse, Berg, Frank Martin or Britten or, for the latter half of the 20th century, Berio, Ohana, Ligeti, Reich, Murail or Lutosławski.
