The strongest simple argument for retaining the Tonnetz is that it is the best model of common-tone relationships between triads, a type of voice-leading relationship that is undoubtedly significant to nineteenth-century practice and does not perfectly align with measures of voice-leading work.

Post-structuralist musicologists have challenged this belief, advancing the view that many romantic triadic progressions exceed the reach of classical syntax and are mobilized as the result of a transgressive, anti-syntactic impulse.

Music theorists have long believed that 19th-century triadic progressions idiomatically extend the diatonic syntax of 18th-century classical tonality, and have accordingly unified the two repertories under a single mode of representation. This two-front strategy comes across as non-committal, because the two ways of dealing with seventh chords are incompatible, implying that one should choose the approach based on the demands of the music at hand.
Douthett, Jack, and Peter Steinbach. Ebook This title is available as an ebook. Cohn puts more resources towards constructing this extension-via-analogy than the extension-via-deletion.
Audacious Euphony: Chromatic Harmony and the Triad’s Second Nature
Both consonant triads and Tristan-genus seventh chords are homophonous diamorphs, whose syntactic behaviors and semantic qualities require two distinct theories, as well as a third one that reconciles them in a cognitively plausible way. While many of the essential concepts and analytical tools have been developed in previous scholarship, this book successfully unifies and expands upon ruphony diverse ideas, providing audaious reader with a theoretically rigorous and historically informed approach to understanding the complex harmonic innovations of the long nineteenth century.

Trivia About Audacious Euphony Rather than offering a new formalism, Cohn here provides a compelling linguistic analogy, suggesting that the integration of diatonic and chromatic syntaxes represents a harmonic bilingualism.

Yet this move also underscores the fact that group-theoretic abstraction euphon not essential to any of the sophisticated theories and analytical techniques Cohn develops in the book. Yet, there is no obvious means by which the convertible Tonnetz promises to lead to analytical insights: Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.
On the Tonnetzhowever, chromatic relationships are simple and proximate, the diatonic ones more complex and distant. While he sometimes uses Schenkerian language when describing harmonic reductions, he does not adopt the Schenkerian practice of relating idealized voice leadings to observable voice-leading relationships in the music.
