Since his death in 1935 at the age of 68, the theories of Heinrich Schenker have become more and more appreciated and ever more widely disseminated in the universities and music conservatories of the world. Unfortunately, the systematizations of those theories have often been so arcane as to leave many theory students scratching their heads in confusion. Now here is a textbook which presents the analytic techniques of Schenkerian analysis in completely understandable terms. From an explanation of the basic ideas of Schenker to the intricate details of graphing, the student is led in logical steps through the analytical process with dozens and dozens of musical examples and graphic analyses. This text is an indispensable aid to the theory student and a must for every individual and institutional music library.
