The earlier chapters recapitulate in condensed form the principles laid down in his Theory of Harmony; the later chapters break entirely new ground, for they analyze the system of key relationships within the structure of whole movements and affirm the principle of "monotonality," showing how all modulations within a movement are merely deviations from, and not negations o ...more

This book is one of it's kind- you will not find a similar analysis of romantic harmonies, done in the same way, from the prespective of a composer and not a musicologist. His way is strange at first, but you can quickly get over it. It should be used after, or with the "Theory of Harmony", also by Schoenberg, in order to understand the concept he uses in this nice little book. Not something you study from start to finish then forget, will take a few read-throughs, but it's worth it.
Much of this is stuff you learn in first-year theory, but Schoenberg has some other interesting theories of his own. Sometimes I wonder if these ideas are a little "forced," such as regionality.

There's a lot of analysis, which is nice. I like to see things analyzed for me.
Really tough to understand at first because he invented his own language for music theory, but once that obstacle is cleared it is really helpful in understanding late romantic tonality.

He was an Austrian composer, associated with the expressionist movement in German poetry and art, and leader of the Second Viennese School. He used the spelling Schönberg until after his move to the United States in 1934 (Steinberg 1995, 463), whereupon he altered it to Schoenberg "in deference to American practice" (Foss 1951, 401), though one writer claims he made the change a year earlier (Ross ...more
