Wonderful reading to which I got accidentaly looking up some research on the so-called Tempest Sonata. Author takes right direction trying to reconcile Schenkerian and "classic Central European" formal music analysis... The treatise mainly focus on music as processual "becoming" phenomena and this sounds very much in par with what I usually perceive in music. Recommended reading not only for Beethovenians, as it actually covers music up to Schumann :)
