Electronic Musicological Review
Vol. 2.1/October 1997

The articles in this issue of the Electronic Musicological Review investigate the theoretical work of Heinrich Schenker, Arnold Schoenberg and Ferruccio Busoni. Marcos Branda Lacerda reviews Schenker's and Schoenberg's writings on musical analysis; Norton Dudeque analyses Schoenberg's harmonic theory; and Vania Schittenhelm discusses how the controversy surrounding Busoni's Sketch of a New Aesthetic of Music reveals important aspects of early modernism.

One of the primary objectives of the Electronic Musicological Review is to contribute to the development of music research in Brazil. We intend to do that not only through the publication of work done by Brazilian researchers, but also by printing texts that would not normally be available to the Portuguese-speaking public. Whenever possible, articles will be published in Portuguese and English and all your contributions are welcomed. We also would also like to know your opinion about the new design of this latest issue. We hope you will find that the new format is much easier to read.
