The procedures by which structural elements in nearly all music function expressively are analyzed in depth. Tonality is examined in a Gregorian chant, a Bach motet, a Beethoven symphony, a Bartók string quartet, and other works by Wolf, Ravel, Webern, and Berg. Texture is explored in a Gesualdo madrigal, a Telemann fantasy for violin, and works by Bach, Brahms, and Dallapiccola. Works by Beethoven, Chopin, and Webern are subjects for revealing studies of rhythm and meter.
A model of original thought,this book has now become one of the most influential works in musical analysis, an invaluable resource for musical scholars and students of musical theory, a lively stimulus to individual theoretical exploration.
