This special issue of the «Rivista di Analisi e Teoria Musicale» collects articles developed from papers presented at the “Schenker’s Formenlehre” pre-organised session, one of the most successful of the 8th European Music Analysis Conference (EuroMAC), held in Leuven, Belgium in September 2014. The session was created and coordinated by Nicolas Meeùs, who circulated a call for proposals via an email forum in October 2013. A number of scholars working on both sides of the Atlantic joined the group’s mailing list and engaged in a wide-ranging discussion. The subsequent elaboration of the papers not only turned them into scholarly articles but also enforced some relevant aspects of the session. Particularly, it highlighted the fluctuation between two poles of attraction: on the one hand the historiographical and hermeneutic approaches based on archival research, historical semantics and history of music theories, and rooted in the tradition of continental musicology; on the other the systematic and analytical approach of music theory which mainly refers to the Anglo-American tradition. Although some of the articles are primarily attracted by one of these poles, the reciprocal implication, interaction and cross-fertilisation of the two spheres of influence comes to prevail, characterising this special issue as a whole. Another distinctive aspect is the tendency to go beyond the boundaries of the classical Schenkerian perspective, which is discussed in an exchange with other theoretical perspectives and analytical methods, thus testifying to the vitality and dynamism of Schenkerian studies today.
