Summary

In recent years neo-Riemannian theory has established itself as the leading approach of our time, and has proven particularly adept at explaining features of chromatic music. This book assembles an international group of leading music theory scholars in an exploration of the music-analytical, theoretical, and historical aspects of this new field.

The Oxford Handbook of Neo-Riemannian Music Theories Summary

The Oxford Handbook of Neo-Riemannian Music Theories by Edward Gollin (Associate Professor of Music, Associate Professor of Music, Williams College)

In recent years Hugo Riemann's ideas have thoroughly captured the music-theoretical imagination, both in the United States and abroad. Neo-Riemannian theory has proven particularly adept at explaining features of chromatic music where other theoretical approaches have failed, and in so doing has established itself as the leading theoretical approach of our time. The Oxford Handbook of Neo-Riemannian Music Theories brings together an international group of leading proponents of Riemannian and neo-Riemannian theory for a thoroughgoing exploration of the music-analytical, systematic, and historical aspects of this important new field. The volume elucidates key aspects of the field, draws connections between Riemann's original ideas and current thought, and suggests new applications and avenues for further study. A number of essays suggest connections to other fields of inquiry, such as cognitive and mathematical music theory, as well as applications in the field of metric or melodic analysis. The selection of essays is complemented by several of Hugo Riemann's key original texts, many of which appear in English translation for the first time, and is rounded off by a glossary of key concepts for easy reference.

The Oxford Handbook of Neo-Riemannian Music Theories Reviews

This volume is of major importance to professional music theorists as well as musicians interested in the deep structure of chromatic tonal music. It is the most comprehensive set of neo-Riemannian analyses now available, conjoining, as it does, the historical Hugo Riemann with contemporary thought and techniques. * The Beethoven Journal *
Provides a thorough study of the analytical, systematic, and historic aspects of this field...An excellent compilation...Highly recommended. * Choice *
The twenty essays in this Oxford Handbook provide a broad cross section of the range of research currently being done, either on Riemann or inspired by his ideas. At the same time these essays suggest many avenues for further research. * Fontes Artis Musicae *
