 Hello Benjamin 

	In 2008, I finished my M.A. and Ph.D. at the University of Toronto
where, for a period of six years, I worked closely with both David
Beach and Ed Laufer.  The dissertation is called "A Documentary Study
and Schenkerian Analysis of Dvorak's Symphony in D Minor op. 70"
(apologies for the lack or diacritic accents; my emailer does not do
them very well).  I suppose this makes me 3rd generation? 

	Further to your inital email, I'm also a performer for whom Schenker
has always been a big part of how I learn the tonal repertory.

 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.
