Resumo

In the context of a preview of central topics taken from a larger research work, this article presents and explains a proposition of a functional analytical symbology which is currently being developed as a tool for the structural harmonic analysis of tonal music. This symbology constitutes a key component for a proposal of an analytical methodology for 19th"‘century extended tonality, which is the core of the aforementioned larger research work. Based on a critical revision of the history of music theory and analysis, this methodology is mainly the result of the recasting and the amplification of thoughts and concepts developed by 19th"‘century theorists such as Hugo Riemann and Arthur von Oettingen. The article introduces the proposed analytical symbology through a comparison to its historical counterparts, and it also highlights the ability of the proposed symbols to graph the harmonic language of 19th"‘century extended tonality by means of a few analytical examples.
