Questioning Schenkerism

The project concerns the publication of a book with the title “Questioning Schenkerism” accepted for publishing by the renowned scientific publishing house ”Peter Lang” Frankfurt. The book consists of nine independent musically analytical texts whose common denominator is the critique of the theory and the analysis of tonal music presented by Heinrich Schenker. Since his book “Der freie Satz” was published in Vienna in 1935 his ideas have gained many followers and become all too dominant especially in American musical analysis.
