Edited by David Beach, Su Yin Mak


University of Rochester Press



Displays the range and diversity of Schenkerian studies today in fifteen essays covering music from Bach through Debussy and Strauss.
Explorations in Schenkerian Analysis is a collection of fifteen essays dedicated to the memory of Edward Laufer, an influential advocate of Schenker's method. The chapters are presented in chronological order by composer, opening with Charles Burkhart's contribution, which is presented as a letter to Edward Laufer (written before his death), and ending with excerpts from Stephen Slottow's 2003 interview with Laufer (in an appendix).

While the unifying focus is Schenkerian analysis, there is considerable variety in the approaches taken by the contributors. There is also variety in the composers represented, ranging from Bach to Debussy and Strauss. The volume thus displays the scope and diversity of Schenkerian studies today.
