A new contribution to the understanding of musical gestures, as grounded in biological, psychological, cultural, and music-stylistic competencies. Hatten demonstrates the power and elegance of synthetic structures and emergent meanings within a changing Viennese Classical style. ". . . scholars in both musicology and theory will find much of value here, and will find their notions of musical meaning challenged and expanded." --Patrick McCreless
