One thought on “Assignment #1

  1. These are very good introductory materials to Schenkerian analysis – an excellent supplement to Tom Pankhurst’s “SchenkerGUIDE” (the book and web site), Steven Porter’s “Schenker Made Simple”, Gagne and Cadwallader’s “Analysis of Tonal Music”, and Forte and Gilbert’s “Introduction to Schenkerian Analysis” (in descending order of user-friendliness to the novice). I certainly doubt that anyone new to Schenker could make head or tail of “Free Composition” without such preparation.
