Abstract and Keywords

This article examines figures 1 and 2 in Riemann's 1914–1915 article. First, it examines the different aspect of Riemann's conception of tone: his notion of Klangvertretung, that any tone may project or assume meaning as one of the three elements of a major or minor triad. Second, it explores Riemann's notion of Klangvertretung as outlined in his “Ideen zu einer ‘Lehre on den Tonvorstellungen’”. Third, the article demonstrates the analytical utility of the concept, exploring how attention to the changing triadic-functional identities of tones in three Schubert Lieder offers an enriched view of structural and chromatic third relations in the works.

Keywords: tone, Klangvertretung, major triad, minor triad, Schubert, Lieder
