"This volume is of major importance to professional music theorists as well as musicians interested in the deep structure of chromatic tonal music. It is the most comprehensive set of neo-Riemannian analyses now available, conjoining, as it does, the historical Hugo Riemann with contemporary thought and techniques." --The Beethoven Journal "Provide[s] a thorough study of the analytical, systematic, and historic aspects of this field...An excellent compilation...Highly recommended." --Choice "The twenty essays in this Oxford Handbook provide a broad cross section of the range of research currently being done, either on Riemann or inspired by his ideas. At the same time these essays suggest many avenues for further research." --Fontes Artis Musicae "That the Oxford Handbook of Neo-Riemannian Music Theories leaves its reader's head abuzz with such ruminations speaks to the uniform strength of its contributions and the room neo-Riemannian theory still has to grow."--Music Theory Spectrum
