Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The translation of Der Tonwille offers the English-speaking community a golden opportunity to probe its past.... The appearance of the translation of Der Tonwille provides an excellent impetus for seeking out the riches in Schenker's earlier writings, both for what they promise to offer to the history of theory and also for what they offer to Schenkerian practice."—Suzannah Clark, Journal of the Royal Music Association
