Figure 1.8. Schoenberg's Violin Concerto op. 36 opens with a pair of inversionally related hexachords voiced in the same way. This generalized neo-Riemannian voice leading preserves the relative arrangement of the chromatic cluster (open note heads, left two measures). Each hexachord is voiced More

...Christopher Segall Numerous late twentieth-century composers grappled with the problem of using triads in non-tonal ways. Alfred Schnittke’s atonal music of 1974–85 offers a solution by relying on three triad-to-triad relations: P (parallel), S (slide), and M (minor third). The first two...

... is provided to classify such pairs. This reframing of phrase-structural analysis in predictive terms opens it up to the hermeneutic strategies of dialogic analysis, by allowing for the exploration of the rhetorical and expressive effects of failed predictions. This article further proposes a way to use corpus...
