Harmonologia: Studies in Music Theory

Series Editor: David Damschroder
The Harmonologia series has served the needs of music theorists for over thirty years. Several of the most-consulted bibliographies in the field, relating to Schenkerian analysis and to the history of music theory, find their home here. Another strength is the distinguished collection of translations of masterworks from the history of music theory by Marpurg, Reicha, F�tis, and Xenakis. The remaining titles offer a broad spectrum of analytical and historical perspectives, focusing on topics such as Bach chorales, fugue, musical time, and jazz.
David Damschroder trained in mathematics, keyboard performance, and music theory, earning graduate degrees from the Eastman School of Music and Yale University. His current research focuses on harmony in tonal music, a project that began with a careful examination of historical analytical practices, the basis for his Thinking About Harmony: Perspectives from the Eighteenth and Nineteenth Centuries (Cambridge University Press, 2008). The project continues with focused studies on selected repertoires: Harmony in Schubert (Cambridge University Press, 2010) and Harmony in Haydn and Mozart (in preparation). Future volumes will be devoted to Beethoven, Chopin, Schumann/Brahms, and Liszt/Wagner.
