Revue de presse
"The result is a book that not only offers new ways of understanding Schubert's music but critiques music theory itself, inviting further questioning of long-accepted assumptions. This work is a fascinating challenge..."
"Recommended for all lovers of Schubert for sure; but also to anyone with more than a passing interest in the development of harmony in particular in the nineteenth century, and indeed musical history more generally."
"Analyzing Schubert certainly is controversial, particularly in Clark's critiques of well established theories, but it is sure to provoke further discussion on music theory's role in understanding music." --Music Research Forum (Volume 27,2012)
