Description/Abstract

Schenker Documents Online is a digital edition of three large collections of documents — the voluminous correspondence between Heinrich Schenker and the members of his circle, together with the theorist's diaries and lessonbooks ; these are supported by additional documents relating to his life, and a set of "profiles" of people, places, and organizations with which he came into contact, the newspapers and journals that he read, and his own works.

SDO does not provide facsimiles; it is thus in no sense a digitization project, nor is it an archive in the strict sense. Rather, it is a scholarly edition, which aims to present near-diplomatic transcriptions of original texts, together with English translations, summaries, supporting commentary, and such interpretation as is necessary to relate these documents to Schenker's personal development and those of his correspondents.

Because it is digital, it provides direct hyperlinks between documents, facilitating rapid movement from document to document; and it offers the end-user a range of tools with which to search and browse documents, thus facilitating the task of understanding and contextualization.
