Heinrich Schenker (1868-1935)

An Austrian theorist whose system of analysis has been influential in theory and composition.  Schenker himself was concerned principally with compositions of the 18th and 19th centuries, but his disciples, such as Felix Salzer, have extended his theories to 20th-century styles.  His works, all published in German, cover a period from 1906 to 1935.  "Structural Hearing" (1952), by Salzer, is one of a number of English publications dealing with Schenker's theories.
