Analytical Musicology & the Piano:
Papers of Nigel Nettheim and Others
This site is concerned with music (mainly classical, mainly piano) and musicology (mainly analytical).
A few other areas are touched upon too.
|Quick definitions: Musicology is the academic study of music. Its three main branches (somewhat overlapping) are: historical musicology, ethnomusicology and analytical musicology. The latter is concerned with relations among the notes of musical scores and, where possible, the significance of those relations.|
