Summary
Starting from an all-encompassing viewpoint--a belief in the importance and necessity of logical analysis of the musical experience, and the study of objective data derived therefrom---it moves twoard a deeper understanding of musical structure and experience through a systematic exploration of tonality, melody, harmony, texture and rhythm, and their important interrelations. These are illuminated in penetrating analyses of musical works and extracts ranging from early modal styles to modern compositions. 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
