...Joseph N. Straus This article creates transformational spaces for interpreting progressions of sets belonging to the same T/I equivalence class. Within these spaces, sets are placed in proximity based upon contextual inversion , specifically those contextual inversions that (like the familiar neo...

... Hubert and Roch, as found in the Salzinnes Antiphonal, confirm that this musical style prevailed for several centuries.

The article then contextualizes the structure of the Dasian space within a larger class of constructs, which I call affinity spaces , by generalizing some of its group-theoretical properties that model relations between nondiatonic scalar materials. The analytical pertinence of affinity...

While it seems clear that Schenker did not find Brahms’s music too ambiguous or too complex to analyze, and certainly did not neglect it, some questions remain unanswered. Did Schenker limit the release of his analyses of Brahms’s music out of respect...

..., there is great emphasis on the distinction between In and the Wechseln, both of which actualize the twelve reflections in D12. In such discussions, the Wechseln are regarded as instances of “contextual” inver- 21 sion. Like In, Wechseln invert Klänge (resp., [037] trichords) across the 30 topos...
