David Damschroder's new analytical perspective sheds fresh light on Beethoven's harmonic structures.
David Damschroder is Professor of Music Theory at the University of Minnesota. His current research focuses on harmony in tonal music, a project that began with a careful examination of historical analytical practices, the basis for his Thinking about Harmony: Historical Perspectives on Analysis (Cambridge, 2008). The project continues with focused studies on selected repertoires: Harmony in Schubert (Cambridge, 2010), Harmony in Haydn and Mozart (Cambridge, 2012), Harmony in Chopin (Cambridge, 2015), and the present book. He has written textbooks on music fundamentals and ear-training/sight-singing, and his articles and reviews have appeared in numerous journals.
