Beschreibung / description

First published in 1948, Structural Functions of Harmony is Schoenberg´s last theoretical work and contains his ultimate thoughts on classical and romantic harmony. The opening chapters are a résumé of the basic principles of the early Theory of Harmony; the subsequent chapters demonstrate  the concept og "monotonality", whereby all modulations to different keys within a movement are analysed not in relation to each other but in terms of their relationship to one central tonality (tonic) as the centre of all harmonic change. Schoenberg´s music examples range from the entire development sections of classical symphonies to analyses of the harmonic progressions of Strauss, Debussy, Reger, and his own early music.
