Drabkin, William and Bent, Ian (2013) The empire strikes back: some unpublished replies to Schenker’s critics Music Analysis, 32 (Submitted).

Record type: Article


Around 1929 and 1930, a flurry of articles and essays (by, among others, Walter Riezler and Arnold Schoenberg) appeared in German periodicals, which were either openly critical of Heinrich Schenker's work or which expressed views to which he was opposed. One of Schenker's pupils, Robert Brünauer, wrote a response to Riezler which was, however, not published; Schenker himself responded to a second critique of his work, and left notes for his response to Schoenberg. The article will include transcriptions and translations of all this material.
