Abstract and Keywords

This article considers Riemann's analysis of Schubert's triadic but highly chromatic Gb-major Impromptu. This article compares Riemann's own analysis of the work with neo-Riemannian view inspired by the writings of Richard Cohn, assessing the differences in analytical methodology and technology, and locating those differences with the divergent ideologies of the two approaches. In this article, the central focus is not on the analytical technologies, but rather on the assumptions and values that underlie the distinct analytical perspectives. It focuses on the analytical values, with a focus on the methodological and ethical contrasts between these two approaches. The article ends by considering the ways in which a technical rapprochement between the theories might open ethical horizons and provide new ways to value music through Riemann-inspired analytical activity.

Keywords: Schubert, Gb-major Impromptu, Richard Cohn, analytical methodology, technology, methodological contrasts, ethical contrasts
