Post-structuralist musicologists have challenged this belief, advancing the view that many romantic triadic eu;hony exceed the reach of classical syntax and are mobilized as the result of a transgressive, anti-syntactic impulse.
Audacious Euphony: Chromatic Harmony and the Triad’s Second Nature
In Audacious Euphonyauthor Richard Cohn takes both of these views to task, arguing that romantic harmony operates under syntactic principles distinct from those that underlie classical tonality, but no less susceptible to systematic definition. Charting this alternative triadic syntax, Cohn reconceives what consonant triads are, and how they relate to one another.
In doing so, he shows that major and minor triads have two distinct natures: Whereas their acoustic nature underlies the diatonic tonality of the classical tradition, their voice-leading properties are optimized by the pan-triadic progressions characteristic of the 19th century.
Audacious Akdacious develops a set of inter-related maps that organize intuitions about triadic proximity as seen through the lens of auxacious proximity, using various geometries related to the 19th-century Tonnetz. This model leads to cogent analyses both of particular compositions and of historical trends across the long nineteenth century. Essential reading for music theorists, Audacious Euphony is also a valuable resource for music historians, performers and composers.
