Abstract

Hans Keller , Functional Analysis: The Unity of Contrasting Themes . Complete Edition of the Analytical Scores, ed. Gerold W. Gruber , Susan Bradshaw and Michael Meixner ( Frankfurt am Main : Peter Lang , 2001 ). 496 pp. £54.80. ISBN 3‐631‐36059‐2 ( hb ). This volume, the fifth in the series of publications of the Institute of Musical Analysis at the University of Music and Performing Art in Vienna, ought to promote a revival of interest in an analytical procedure that opened many eyes (or rather, ears) in the late 1950s. Hans Keller, Viennese by birth but an emigrant to England, undertook to explain his ideas about musical analysis (orientated primarily according to the categories of the Second Viennese School) in the form of non‐verbal analyses. What undoubtedly contributed to the special attraction of his method was that as a rule the exposition involved the cooperation of musicians who demonstrated the results of Keller's analyses in live performances and in concerts (with the character of workshops) that were almost always intended for the medium of radio as well. Now, for the first time, Gerold W. Gruber has published Keller's analytical scores along with his (of course verbal)
