Musicology - Analysis

Analysis has for many years established itself as an active and influential research area at Bangor. The School’s Research Professor, Robert Pascall, is acknowledged as a leading expert in the field, and has recently published articles on Schoenberg’s pedagogical writings and the first movement of his Fourth String Quartet for Proceedings of the Arnold Schoenberg Centre, and on Brahms’s Clarinet Quintet.
