I asked this question over at the composeforums.com forums and didn't get the answers I was looking for, so I thought I would pose it here:
Are there any good resources out there where classical works have been analyzed and discussed? For chord prgressions, analysis of melody, harmony, etc.?
You know, like Alan Pollack did for all of the Beatles songs?
He has section by section walk-throughs that examine chord progresssions, melodies, etc. of every Beatle's song.
I have found bits and pieces in various articles on modulation, tonality, etc. And a good bit on analyzing chord progressions for pop and jazz tunes, but haven't been able to find the same for classical works.
It was suggested to search UMI for any relavant Honours, Masters and Doctoral theses. ( http://wwwlib.umi.com/dissertations/ )
Any other suggestions? Perhaps some good books that cover this kind of thing.
