This exploration of rhythmic expansion in tonal music is based on ten years of original research extending the implications of Schenkerian theory. Part 1 defines phrase rhythm, examines phrase expansion and explores the relationship between phrase rhythm and musical form. In part 2 Rothstein applies and develops his theory through an analysis of the works of Haydn, Mendelssohn, Chopin and Wagner; he covers rhythmic problems in tonal music and traces rhythmic style from the classic period through the 20th century.
