Damschroder’s book, a well-researched and thoughtful study of chromatic harmony in the music of Schubert (but which could easily apply to other nineteenth-century composers), will certainly give readers much to think about....his book will open novel imaginative spaces for thinking about harmony and will challenge the reader to consider harmony in both its local and global context."
