Irish Musical Analysis

Irish Musical Studies 11

Edited by: Julian Horton, Gareth Cox

The extraordinary rise of musicology in Ireland over the last 20 years has generated an increased interest in the sister discipline of music theory and analysis. Irish Musical Analysis highlights this development and presents a substantial cross-section of the current state of the discipline in two main parts. Part I of the book offers analytical perspectives on compositional techniques used by Irish composers, including Kevin Volans, Roger Doyle, A.J. Potter, John Kinsella, Eric Sweeney, and Gerald Barry. Part II engages more broadly with mainstream theoretical and analytical topics and embraces a wide range of works, genres, and approaches, including repertoire from the early 19th to the later 20th century (Schubert, Chopin, Brahms, Bruckner, Nielsen, Sibelius), as well as theoretical perspectives from Schenkerian theory and sonata theory to post-tonal voice leading and serialism.
