A student of Heinrich Schenker and a major theorist in his own right, Oswald Jonas (1897–1978) wrote this introduction in 1934 as Schenker's theories were reaching their final form, later revising it in 1972. Widely admired not only for its sensitivity to Schenker's work, but for Jonas's own original insights and broad knowledge of the repertoire.

John Rothgeb has revised his outstanding English translation of Jonas's text. It has been newly designed and typeset, with improvements to many of the musical examples. A new appendix has been added containing a list of works by Oswald Jonas.

“Unexpectedly courageous, convincing, felicitous in the choice and solution of the examples.” — Heinrich Schenker

Phrase Rhythm in Tonal Music seems to me to be more musical, more intelligently conceived, and better written than the vast majority of books that deal with music in a technical way. . . . excellent.” — Carl Schachter
