RONAI, Laura. Analysis of an analysis: Tarasti on Liszt. Per musi [online]. 2012, n.25, pp.112-116. ISSN 1517-7599. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1517-75992012000100012.
In his fundamental book, A Theory of Musical Semiotics, Eero Tarasti endeavors to analyze Liszt's piano workVallée d'Obermann from the point of view of semiotics. In a process of clever musical archaeology, the author reveals the many layers that color the score of the Hungarian composer. The present article intends to make a few observations at the margin of this text, trying to detail and comment the analysis by one of the most important Semiotics theorists in the world.
