Harmony without Voice Leading? The Challenge of Interpreting Exact Leaping Transpositions

Harmony without Voice Leading? The Challenge of Interpreting Exact Leaping Transpositions In common‐practice tonal music, normative voice leading is challenged when motives based on arpeggiated chords recur transposed by leaps. Most often, linear readings become possible by means of choosing a different member from each participating chord. The exact details depend on the specific harmonic progression. Some alternative readings are also possible. There is a danger of theoretical bias in such readings, although many of the actual instances are strongly convincing. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Music Analysis Wiley

Abstract

In common‐practice tonal music, normative voice leading is challenged when motives based on arpeggiated chords recur transposed by leaps. Most often, linear readings become possible by means of choosing a different member from each participating chord. The exact details depend on the specific harmonic progression. Some alternative readings are also possible. There is a danger of theoretical bias in such readings, although many of the actual instances are strongly convincing.
