From the Back Cover:

A classic in music theory since its publication in 1983, this work models music understanding from the perspective of cognitive science. The point of departure is a search for a grammar of music with the aid of generative linguistics. The theory, which is illustrated with numerous examples from Western classical music, relates the aural surface of a piece to the musical structure unconsciously inferred by the experienced listener.

About the Author:

Frd Lerdahl is Fritz Reiner Professor of Musical Composition at Columbia University.
