Interior Cadences in the Sentence of Schoenberg
Keywords:cadence, sentence, harmony, form, prolongation
This essay will argue against William Caplin’s concept of cadence and will disprove his allegation about an unquestionable lack of interior cadence in the sentence of Schoenberg. Another subject of criticism will be the assumption expressed by Caplin and other theorists that functional prolongation always negates cadence.
