An Aspect of Functional Harmony in Schoenberg's Early Post‐Tonal Music

An Aspect of Functional Harmony in Schoenberg's Early Post‐Tonal Music Two views of Schoenberg's post‐tonal music are common: that it is non‐functional, and that there was a complete break from the tonal music that preceded it. In this article I show that there are aspects of functional voice leading, derived from tonality, that are still present in Schoenberg's early post‐tonal music. Furthermore, this functional harmony also helps to communicate the form of the piece and to supply closure. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Music Analysis Wiley

Abstract

Two views of Schoenberg's post‐tonal music are common: that it is non‐functional, and that there was a complete break from the tonal music that preceded it. In this article I show that there are aspects of functional voice leading, derived from tonality, that are still present in Schoenberg's early post‐tonal music. Furthermore, this functional harmony also helps to communicate the form of the piece and to supply closure.
