Book Description:

'At a time when transformations and networks have given us high expectations of new theories of tonal harmony, this book raises the stakes by deriving its results from prolific excavations of composers' actual practices. It leads us through four centuries of Western art music arguing passionately that the interplay of symmetry and polarity has been at the heart of the story of the major-minor system. It is a fascinating study for all those who learn and research music from the 16th century to Schoenberg.' --Jonathan Dunsby, Eastman School of Music, USA
