Abstract and Keywords

This article traces the reception of Hugo Riemann's ideas and examines their gradual transformations in the hands of his contemporaries and successors. By placing Riemann's legacy in a wider context of music-theoretical traditions, the article demonstrates that, divergent to the common belief, there existed a middle ground between Viennese scale-degree theory and Riemannian function theory, voice-leading approaches and Klang-based approaches. In this article, theorists such as Georg Capellen, Rudolf Louis, and Johannes Schreyer are discussed and seen as the missing links between the two great musical-theoretical centres of Vienna and Leipzig.

Keywords: Hugo Riemann, Riemann's legacy, music-theoretical traditions, scale-degree theory, Riemannian function theory, voice-leading approaches, Klang-based approaches
