Sample text

Kirnberger presents the first of these examples directly after progressions with bass C–G–C or C–F–C. Here he “extends” and “prepares” the cadence. 6 Kirnberger/[Schulz]: Die wahren Grundsätze zum Gebrauch der Harmonie (1773), pp. 51–52 [Beach and Thym, p. 207]. To eliminate the F–G step of the upper fundamental-bass analysis, Schulz asserts that it would be more correct (richtiger) to reinterpret the F53 chord as an F65 chord with absent D. One may then invoke Rameau’s principle of double employment (double emploi) to generate preferred fundamental-bass intervals (C–F and D–G), shown in the lower fundamental-bass analysis.

26 We turn our attention now to two musicians living in Paris in 1830: the composer Berlioz and his critic Fétis. Berlioz went on to create a wonderful though perennially underappreciated body of work, while Fétis attained prominence as a musicologist and produced one of the century’s most celebrated treatises on harmony. Fétis, the elder by nineteen years, was a professor at the Paris Conservatory at the time that Berlioz, who was working with a rival teacher, was attempting to break through as a composer.

Though D would be an appealing root in this context, Gianotti here takes pains to avoid the fundamental-bass ascent of a second (C to D). ”8 In compliance with that prescription, the fundamental bass for measures 2 and 3 appears as C–A–D. After two downbeats embellished by suspension, Rameau’s theory of supposition is invoked: F97 is analyzed as A7 with supposed F. ”9 Gianotti demonstrates that these two strategies may be invoked in close proximity. 2 Gianotti: Le guide du compositeur (1759), p.
