These animations bring many of the Tonnetz analyses, whose dynamic properties are often hard to reproduce on the printed page, to life. The writing is vivid and engaging, euphohy musical close readings are rich and compelling in their detail, and at every turn there is something new to learn about music and musical materials we had thought we already knew well.
While many of the essential concepts and analytical tools have been developed in previous scholarship, this book successfully unifies and expands upon these diverse ideas, providing the reader with a theoretically rigorous and historically informed approach to understanding the complex audaciious innovations of the long nineteenth century.

Peter rated it really liked it Dec 22, Chapter Six Navigating the Triadic Universe: In doing so, he shows that major and minor triads have two distinct natures: Whereas their acoustic nature underlies the diatonic tonality of the classical tradition, their aaudacious properties are optimized by the pan-triadic progressions characteristic of audacipus 19th century. In Audacious Euphonyauthor Richard Cohn takes both of these views to task, arguing that romantic harmony operates under syntactic principles distinct from those that underlie classical tonality, but no less susceptible to systematic definition.

On the Tonnetzhowever, chromatic relationships are simple and proximate, the diatonic ones more complex and distant.

Chapter 7 gives two answers to the question of how to extend insights about triadic relationships to larger chords.
It lights up as never before the universe of triads domesticated in nineteenth-century chromatic music. Although he defends dualism 37—39it is no longer a deep theoretical principle. His work on chromatic harmony has been the topic of a series of summer seminars convened by the late John Clough, and has been developed in about a dozen doctoral dissertations, at Chicago, Indiana, Yale, Harvard, and SUNY-Buffalo.

The model generalizes to apply to relations among Tristan-genus seventh chords, due to their structural homologies with triads. Navigating the Triadic Universe: Syntho rated it it was amazing Aug 14, Music theorists have long believed that 19th-century triadic progressions idiomatically extend the diatonic syntax of 18th-century classical tonality, and have accordingly unified the two repertories under a single mode of representation.
