Dear collective wisdom,
A student recently asked me if I knew of any writings that endorse more than one analytical approach to a single piece. While I am aware that many theorists are sympathetic to more than one approach (for example, Schenkerian analysts now routinely invoke Schema theory or Sonata Theory in their work) I wonder what would be a good example of what the student is asking for. It seems to me that writers tend to be fairly strongly inclined to favor one approach as the guiding line of inquiry.
Thanks in advance.
