Post-tonal analytical techniques: Stravinsky’s symphonies of wind instruments

Matthews, Jeremy (1998) Post-tonal analytical techniques: Stravinsky’s symphonies of wind instruments. Masters thesis, Durham University.



The analysis of post-tonal music remains problematic. Analytical methodologies designed specifically for tonal or atonal music require substantial modification if they are to effectively analyse post-tonal works. Stravinsky's Symphonies of Wind Instruments is a fine model of post-tonal originality and is a difficult piece for analysis. Following a discussion of various analytical approaches, this paper presents a detailed analytical examination of Symphonies of Wind Instruments. The paper closes by developing conclusions and acknowledging the continuing advances of music analysis.
