Classical, Early, and Medieval World History: Chapter 6 enlists two principles developed over the previous chapters in a number of analytical vignettes.
Ann rated it really liked it Apr 14, 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 harmonic innovations of the long nineteenth century.

In particular, Cohn argues that chromatic harmony is based on the voice-leading logic of the consonant triad in chromatic space, and is therefore independent from Classical harmony, in which triadic relationships are mediated by diatonic scales.
He begins, in Chapter 1, by advancing the non-integrationist argument, that nineteenth-century chromaticism is not simply an extension of Classical harmonic practice, which has been a persistent theme of his work beginning with Cohn Patrick marked it as to-read May 18, In preparation is a general model of meter with applications for European, African, and African-diasporic music, and a co-edited collection on David Lewin’s phenomenological writings.

Stuart Duncan rated it it was amazing Mar 21, Ben rated it liked it Sep 10, He does not, as Riemann himself might have, claim that dualist nomenclature reveals a deeper musical truth of inversional equivalence; instead he makes a purely formal argument that dualist transformations reflect the fact that voice-leading distance is independent of direction.
Audacious Euphony reconstructs this view and uses it as the basis for a chromatic model of triadic space, developing geometric representations from blueprints of Euler and Weitzmann As such, it will frame the continuing debate about nineteenth-century chromaticism and be an essential reference point for the non-integrationist perspective.
The shift realizes the implication of the turn, made in Cohn andtowards chromatic voice-leading as the crucial element in an explanation of nineteenth-century harmony. The persistent problem is that the differences between local and large-scale relationships in music tend to be the reverse of those in the Tonnetz. Metamorphosis in Music Benjamin R. Kyle Hovatter marked it as to-read Aug 23, Douthett, Jack, and Peter Steinbach.
Dale Zhou marked it as to-read Jul 14, Aaron Alon is currently reading it Mar 02, Charting this alternative triadic syntax, Cohn reconceives what consonant triads are, and how they relate to one another. This model leads to cogent analyses both of particular compositions and of historical trends across the long nineteenth century.

Audacious Euphony develops a set of inter-related maps that organize intuitions about triadic proximity as seen through the lens of voice-leading proximity, using various geometries related to the 19th-century Tonnetz.
This two-front strategy comes across as non-committal, because the two ways of dealing with seventh chords are incompatible, implying that one should choose the approach based on the demands of the music at hand.
Eupjony consonant triads and Tristan-genus seventh chords are homophonous diamorphs, whose syntactic behaviors and semantic qualities require two distinct theories, as well as a third one that reconciles them in a cognitively plausible way.
On the Tonnetzhowever, chromatic relationships are simple and proximate, the diatonic ones more complex and distant. Chapter One Mapping the Triadic Universe.
Local analyses chart literal progressions. As such, it will frame the continuing debate about eupuony chromaticism and be an essential reference point for the non-integrationist perspective. In Audacious Euphony, author 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.
Cohn audscious more resources towards constructing this extension-via-analogy than the extension-via-deletion. Users without a subscription are not able to see the full content.
Audacious Euphony: Chromaticism and the Triad’s Second Nature
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. To purchase, visit your preferred ebook provider.
These differences seem to be artifacts of the theoretical edifice, however; it is not entirely clear that they actually reflect distinct compositional approaches to the use of seventh chords. The coordination of analyses with performances encourages us to perceive the harmonic moves as temporally delineated actions and gestures.
