Description : The essays contained in this volume provide a focus on the work of the music theorist Heinrich Schenker - a figure of legendary status who has had an incalculable influence on developments in music theory and analysis in this century. His theories, not always fully understood, have aroused some controversy. The broad spectrum of essays presented here will help clarify Schenker's ideas and their application and will also serve as a useful introduction to his work for music theorists. The essays, written by fourteen leading theorists, originate in papers delivered at the Schenker Symposium held at The Mannes College of Music, New York in 1985.
Description : Throughout his career, David Lewin labored to make even the most abstract theory speak to the experience of the ordinary listener. This book combines many of Lewin's classic articles on song and opera with newly drafted chapters on songs of Brahms, Robert Schumann, Clara Schumann, and Milton Babbitt. Bound together by Lewin's cogent insight, the resulting collection constitutes a major statement concerning the methodological problems associated with interpretation of texted music.
Description : The third and final volume of Schenker's Masterwork, containing his celebrated analysis of Beethoven's Eroica.

Description : Since his death in 1935, Heinrich Schenker's influence on music theory has steadily increased. This indexed guide to an archive of Schenker's manuscripts is augmented by the Nachlass of his pupil Jonas and his close friend Violin. The catalog describes each manuscript and provides access to Schenker's critical works, his annotated scores and performance comments, his correspondence with Furtw�ngler, Schoenberg, and others, and his diaries (1896-1935). The Jonas collection is at the University of California, Riverside.
Description : David Kopp's book develops a model of chromatic chord relations in nineteenth-century music by composers such as Schubert, Beethoven, Chopin, Schumann and Brahms. The emphasis is on explaining chromatic third relations and the pivotal role they play in theory and practice. The book traces conceptions of harmonic system and of chromatic third relations from Rameau through nineteenth-century theorists such as Marx, Hauptmann and Riemann, to the seminal twentieth-century theorists Schenker and Schoenberg and on to the present day. Drawing on tenets of nineteenth-century harmonic theory, contemporary transformation theory and the author's own approach, the book presents a clear and elegant means for characterizing commonly acknowledged but loosely defined elements of chromatic harmony, and integrates them as fully fledged entities into a chromatically based conception of harmonic system. The historical and theoretical argument is supplemented by plentiful analytic examples.
Description : Carl Schachter is widely acknowledged to be one of the leading music theorists of his generation. His influence, both as a teacher and through his writings, is incalculable. Yet as known to his colleagues, students, and friends, Carl Schachter the man is equally remarkable. The essays in this book reflect both aspects of his influence. Among the many notable scholars with contributions to this volume are Charles Burkhart, William Rothstein, Joel Lester, Hedi Siegel, Channan Willner, Frank Samaratto, and William Renwick.
Description : Advanced Schenkerian Analysis: Perspectives on Phrase Rhythm, Motive, and Form is a textbook for students with some background in Schenkerian theory. It begins with an overview of Schenker's theories, then progresses systematically from the phrase and their various combinations to longer and more complex works. Unlike other texts on this subject, Advanced Schenkerian Analysis combines the study of multi-level pitch organization with that of phrase rhythm (the interaction of phrase and hypermeter), motivic repetition at different structural levels, and form. It also contains analytic graphs of several extended movements, separate works, and songs. A separate Instructor’s Manual provides additional advice and solutions (graphs) of all recommended assignments.
