The book includes more than 200 analytical graphs, an appendix on graphic notation, and a bibliography.

In this highly anticipated new edition of Analysis of Tonal Music: A Schenkerian Approach, authors Allen Cadwallader, David Gagné, and Frank Samarotto use specific, memorable compositions to explain structural principles. This approach teaches students how to think about, critically examine, understand, and perform great compositions of Western art music. Part 1 covers principles fundamental to the study of Schenkerian analysis and includes discussions of melody, counterpoint, 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 200 analytical graphs, an appendix on graphic notation, and a bibliography.
