PART 1 - 1.1 - Genesis of the analytical model :: 1.2 - Description of the analytical model :: 1.3 - A practice of analysis in the tonal harmonic discourse from Bach to Wagner :: 1.4 - By way of a general conclusion



The section devoted to the presentation of the analytical model derives a large part of its contents from a lecture that was delivered at the annual conference of the ARMUQ (held May 6-8, 1989) and published in the eleventh Cahier de l'ARMUQ in September 1989.

The section devoted to harmonic sequences re-uses, with corrections and supplementary examples, the content of an article published in the Revue de musique des universités canadiennes, SMUC (Canadian University Music Society, CUMS), No. 9/1, 1988, p. 19-82.
