  Felix Salzer - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
He was one of the principal followers of Heinrich Schenker, and did much to refine and explain Schenkerian analysis after Schenker's death.
In 1939 Salzer emigrated to the United States, and became a citizen in 1945.
Salzer's works include Structural Hearing (1952 and 1962), Counterpoint in Composition: The Study of Voice Leading (with Carl Schachter, 1969), and the periodical The Music Forum (initiated 1967).

 SchenkerPilot: Salzer, Felix
Born in Vienna into the Wittgenstein family (his mother, Helene Salzer, was the sister of the philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein and the pianist Paul Wittgenstein), Salzer began his studies with Schenker in 1931.
Salzer also studied musicology with Guido Adler at Vienna University, writing a dissertation “Die Sonatenform bei Franz Schubert,”; and receiving a doctorate in 1926.
Salzer’s major publications include Sinn und Wesen der abendländischen Mehrstimmigkeit (Vienna: Saturn-Verlag, 1935), Structural Hearing: Tonal Coherence in Music (New York: Boni, 1952; reprinted New York: Dover, 1962 and 1982), and Counterpoint in Composition: The Study of Voice Leading, with Carl Schachter (New York: McGraw-Hill, 1969; reprinted New York: Columbia University Press, 1989).

 Schenker Analysis for Pantonal Composition
Salzer's "Harmony" may be limited and historically based, but harmony does exist naturally in music.
Salzer's harmonic spectrum has at its core a small cluster of tone-relationships, the beatless Octave, relatively pure Fifth and Fourth, rich and buzzy Third/Sixth, while the rest fall in the class of the so-called "dissonances" of various sorts.
There is a reason for use of graphic display, as Salzer notes: There are relationships which the ear hears well, but the eye understands quite differently, and in some ways more coherently.

 Channan Willner: Biography
I studied privately with a splendid American teacher, the composer Irvin ("Buzz") Brusletten, who was on the faculty of the Villa Schifanoia Graduate School of the Arts.
It was Buzz who introduced me to the wonders of Schenkerian analysis, through Allan Forte's Tonal Harmony in Concept and Practice and through Felix Salzer and Carl Schachter's Counterpoint in Composition, which had just come out (1969).
Wanting to study Schenker at the college and conservatory level, I returned to the United States in 1972 to pursue a B.S. in theory at the Mannes College of Music in New York.

 William Harris: On Analysis
I have always been interested by Schenker analysis of music, after a protreptic from Larry Read on Salzer's development and interpretation of Schenker ideas, I plunged into this area again and burned some midnight oil with a stack of formidable reading.
A quick look at Schenker's Five Graphic Music Analyses with introduction by Felix Salzer (Dover reprint 1969 from the 1933 edition from the Mannes College of Music) shows a brilliant visual way of approaching music.
Music can be taken apart this way, but probably not put together thus, as Salzer openly admits.

 Lucia Dlugoszewski - Biography - AOL Music
American composer Lucia Dlugoszewski enjoyed a long career as a non-traditional composer of music for the dance, "underground" films and for theater productions utilizing instruments of her own make, or finding unique and new ways to compose for established instruments.
Born in Detroit in 1934 (some biographies place the date at 1931), Dlugoszewski attended Wayne State University with the intention of entering into pre-med school, but instead settled in New York in 1953, studying analysis with Felix Salzer, piano with Grete Sultan and composition with Edgar Varèse.
Even before her departure to New York, Dlugoszewski was composing in an experimental idiom in such works as the early 50 Transparencies for everyday sounds (1951).

 Moot Thoughts & Musings: Schenker, Analysis, and Early Music
Stating that there was no conception of harmonic thinking in medieval music, which is no surprise to us, Salzer asserts the thesis that it is a contrapuntal tonality that is present.
Many graphs by Felix Salzer, and some by Carl Schachter, support this agenda of Schenkerianism in mid-20th century American early music analysis.
Cristle Judd in her book Reading Renaissance Music Theory traces analyses from the 1960’s and 70’s of a Josquin motet Magnus es tu domine/Tu pauperum refugium by Salzer/Schachter, Wallace Berry, and Charles Joseph, all neo-Schenkerian to some degree or other, and places them in line with the “emerging tonality” thesis.

 THE BEETHOVEN A MAJOR SONATA: A CLOSER LOOK -- PART II
Twelve to fifteen years later, between 1904 and 1907, Steger's holdings were dispersed, and the Wittgenstein family bought the autograph.
Later still it came into the possession of Felix Salzer, Lockwood's teacher and one of the founding editors of The Music Forum.
After Salzer assumed the joint editorship, a decision was made that the journal would be a suitable venue for publishing a study of the autograph along with a facsimile.

 Amazon.ca: Structural Hearing : Tonal Coherence in Music: Books: Felix Salzer   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
This is probably the first and most famous book that approaches the monumental work of Schenker in a fundamentally systematic and pedagogical fashion.
It must be noted, however, that there are parts of the book where he approaches Stravinsky, Bartok, Hindemith, and others, with tonic-dominant relationships in mind; some of Salzer's propositions regarding this music are preposterous.
It's still an excellent introduction to the Shenkerian world, with great pedagogical value- it's simply important to keep things in proper context when reading this book.

 t551 Course Page
Understand the difference between what Felix Salzer has called chord grammar (what a chord 's name is) and chord significance (what a chord does, that is, how it functions).
Taking a decidely Salzerian point of view (Salzer was a student of Heinrich Schenker), it provides many good and clear examples of how tonal passages are activated contrapuntally.
Melody in tonal music has been considered by some to be the “surface of harmony,” meaning that it is strictly governed by harmony.

Salzer's work is a continuation & extrapolation on Heinrich Schenker's work on music theory.
The only drawback is it is not fully consistent when dealing with post-Romanticism (but then Schneker's theory is not always applicable in later musical contexts, & in some cases not completely internally-consistent).
