Acknowledged as the leading German musicologist of his age, Hugo Riemann (1849-1919) shaped the ideas of generations of music scholars. This work examines his controversial theory of harmonic dualism, placed in its historical & social context to regain the coherence & cultural urgency it once possessed.
