Content

Tonality continued to be a viable compositional technique well after it was claimed to have been made obsolete by novel developments around the turn of the twentieth century. The attention of music theorists understandably shifted to explaining these new approaches, and the continuation of tonal practices was not studied in general, but only in relation to individual composers. This work picks up theories of tonality where they were abandoned and develops them in light of tonal practices of the last century, focusing on common principles underlying the music of composers of both art and popular music, including Brian Wilson, Dmitri Shostakovich, Frank Martin, Leonard Bernstein, Maurice Durufl, Neil Diamond, Olivier Messiaen, Paul Hindemith, Sergei Prokofiev, and Xiaoyong Chen.
