I’m studying about Harmony, I think it’s helpful for me? See 1 question about Theory of Harmony…. Lists with This Book. Apr 17, Khaled rated it it was amazing.

I’ve studied a lot of harmony before starting this one. What makes this book one of my top 3 books of all time is the philosophical discussions of everything, dissonance, consonance, progressions.

This book has changed the way I think of music forever. Schoenberg presents a very thorough look at traditional harmony, and he is quite intentional in his approach– his statements are justified by common sense, acoustics, and the successes of other masterful composers.

Throughout, Schoenberg teaches the reader to be skeptical of “aesthetic laws” devised by theorists without reason. A careful read through Harmonielehre provides the following: While the book is an impressive tour through harmony from basic scales and triads through polychords, the octatonic scale, etc.

When he isn’t providing the reader with a million examples of voice leading or modulation schhoenberg takes up page after page with philosophical musing. There’s even one passage pg. I appreciated the dual aspects of Tgatado musical thought– his quirky understanding of harmony and his throughly Teutonic philosophy of music– but I would have preferred that they be kept somewhat separate throughout the work. I understand why they must be presented side-by-side– music theory has a history of dogmatism and quasi-political debate.


Schoenberg couldn’t have presented his view of harmony without some lengthy discussion and justification. As it is, Harmonielehre represents a dense and extended stream of consciousness. This work really must tratadp read over an extended period of time– I found it quite difficult to read for long sittings– and the reader should expect to skip over sections.

Schoenberg supplies a plethora of opportunities for the arnol to practice, analyse, and contemplate; if all of these are taken, Harmonielehre truly becomes a year-long course in harmony. The student who truly wishes to learn harmony from this book should keep a piano close at hand. The student who wants to appreciate Schoenberg’s text can do without.

He was an Austrian composer, associated with the expressionist movement in German poetry and art, and leader of the Second Viennese School.

Schoenberg’s approach, both in terms of harmony and development, is among the major landmarks of 20th-century musical thought; at least three generations of composers in the European and American traditions have consciously extended his thinking or, in some cases, passionately reacted against it. During the rise of the Nazi Party in Austria, his music was labeled, alongside jazz, as degenerate art[citation needed].

Schoenberg was widely known early in his career for his success in simultaneously extending the traditionally opposed German Romantic styles of Brahms and Wagner. Later, his name would come to personify pioneering innovations in atonality that would become the most polemical feature of 20th-century art music.

In the s, Schoenberg developed the twelve-tone technique, a widely influential compositional method of manipulating an ordered series of all twelve notes in the chromatic scale.

He also coined the term developing variation, and was the first modern composer to embrace ways of developing motifs without resorting to the dominance of a centralized melodic idea. Schoenberg was also a painter, an important music theorist, and an influential teacher of composition; his students included Alban Berg, Anton Webern, Hanns Eisler, Egon Wellesz, and later John Cage, Lou Harrison, Earl Kim, and many other prominent musicians.

Many of Schoenberg’s practices, including the formalization of compositional method, and his habit of openly inviting audiences to think analytically, are echoed in avant-garde musical thought throughout the 20th century.

His often polemical views of music history and aesthetics were crucial to many of the 20th century’s significant musicologists and critics, including Theodor Adorno, Charles Rosen, and Carl Dahlhaus.
