Analysis of Tonal Music: A Schenkerian Approach, Third Edition, is a comprehensive, logically organized introduction to the fundamental principles of Schenkerian technique.

Analysis of Tonal Music: A Schenkerian Approach

This approach teaches students how to think about and critically examine music in ways that will inform their understanding and performance of great compositions of Western art music. Part 1 covers principles fundamental to the study of Schenkerian analysis and includes discussions of melody, cadwallaader, bass-line structures, the imaginary continuo, linear techniques, and the essential properties of the Ursatz fundamental structure.


Part 2 presents complete compositions by formal category, beginning with one-part forms; proceeding through binary, ternary, and rondo forms; and concluding with the sonata principle.

The book includes more than analytical graphs–some new to this edition–an appendix on graphic notation, and a bibliography.

Introduction Beethoven, Piano Sonata, Op. Binary Forms Handel, Suite No. Sonata Principle Clementi, Sonatina, Op.

He is the coeditor of Structure and Meaning in Tonal Music: Festschrift in Honor of Carl Schachter The text presents an authentic understanding of the tradition of Schenker’s theory; it far supersedes any competitors, and it is the only Schenkerian text I recommend.

The book covers mhsic the topics I introduce to students and does so in a thoughtful, clear manner. It provides a anaoysis foundation upon which students can develop their hearing and thinking about music from a Schenkerian perspective.
