Hugo Riemann and the Birth of Modern Musical Thought by Alexander Rehding

Book Description

Generally acknowledged as the most important German musicologist of his age, Hugo Riemann (1849-1919) shaped the ideas of generations of music scholars, not least because his work coincided with the institutionalisation of academic musicology around the turn of the last century. This influence, however, belies the contentious idea at the heart of his musical thought, an idea he defended for most of his career - harmonic dualism. By situating Riemann's musical thought within turn-of-the-century discourses about the natural sciences, German nationhood and modern technology, this book reconstructs the cultural context in which Riemann's ideas not only 'made sense' but advanced an understanding of the tonal tradition as both natural and German. Riemann's musical thought - from his considerations of acoustical properties to his aesthetic and music-historical views - thus regains the coherence and cultural urgency that it once possessed.

Music in Time - Phenomenology, Perception, Performance by Alexander Rehding Music in Time - Phenomenology, Perception, Performance, Hardback (September 2016)

Music in Time probes the temporality of music from many perspectives, in response to Christopher F. Hasty s groundbreaking Meter as Rhythm. The essays bridge the conventional divides between theory, history, ethnomusicology, aesthetics, performance practice, cognitive psychology, and dance studies."

In recent years neo-Riemannian theory has established itself as the leading approach of our time, and has proven particularly adept at explaining features of chromatic music.

Music and Monumentality by Alexander Rehding Music and Monumentality, Hardback (August 2009)

This critical study locates musical monumentality, a central property of the nineteenth-century German repertoire, at the intersections of aesthetics and memory. In examples including Beethoven, Liszt, Wagner and Bruckner, Rehding explores how monumentality contributes to an experiential music history and how it conveys the sublime to the listening public.
