Dear Colleagues,

Nicolas Meeùs writes:

You are not entirely clear about the scope of your query, namely whether it is restricted to American Schenkerism or addresses European (or possibly other) Schenkerism as well. I don't know about possible answers of my German or Dutch colleagues, who would seem to have been in closer contact with your "second" and "third" generations – I'd be very much interested by what they say.

Thank you for pointing this out, Nicolas.  I do not wish to limit the scope of my inquiry to American scholars--there are too many fine publications from Europe and Asia for this to be tenable.  As Schenker is ascendant in Europe (witness the recent conferences in Utrecht, Vienna, and Berlin-Mannheim-Sauen), I would appreciate hearing from my European colleagues how they came to be acquainted with Schenker, whether through reading, as an auto-didact, or via a conference (e.g., that held at the Royal Holloway in 1993; the Estonian conferences on "A Composition as a Problem" or others).  Reception in Eastern Europe and Asia is of particular interest with the Russian and Chinese translations of Freie Satz by Boris Plotnikov and Chen Shi-Ben being available there.
