Develops an account of the formal aspect of musical structure and the kind of understanding that it permits and satisfies. Argues for the untenability of the theories developed by both Schenker and Meyer but tries to rescue the Schenkerian concept of prolongation from its theoretical abuse. Argues for a fundamental connection between musical form and human gesture and movement.

Keywords:   Meyer, musical form, musical structure, prolongation, Schenker
