Resumo: 

This project seeks to explain the peculiar and puzzling features of Liszt’s late piano works (1880-85) — theoretical or analytical, aesthetical or critical — in the light of my cognitive model of harmonic modulation. This is an essentially plastic process, developed from Aristotle´s original understanding of nature as an inner principle of change and stasis (metabole), whereby our musical mind shapes the harmonic tonal space.

First, my model ought to engage neo-Riemannian theory, the most influential to account for ultra-chromatic music, whose major proponents are based at Yale University. Now, the original scope has been deepened and expanded through a collaboration with the Eastman School of Music. Thereby arose the new “Teoria & Música” editorial series, a branch of Cadernos de Teoria das Artes.
