    Default Analysis of Schbert's chamber works?

    As far as I can tell from summaries, Tovey totally skips Schubert in his volume on Chamber Music. (I'll know for sure shortly, since I've ordered a copy.)

    So, does anyone know of a book (or other source) that gives a bar by bar analysis of any or all of Schubert's chamber works? TIA!

    D.J. Hoek's Analyses of Nineteenth- and Twentieth-Century Music, 1940-2000 provides a bibliography of analyses published from 1940-2000 on Western composers, and there are quite a few entries for Schubert. If you tell me some specific pieces you are looking for analyses of, I can consult the volume and give you the bibliographic entries. (Or alternatively, PM me.)

    Other books of interest might include The Approach to Sonata Form in Schubert's Trios, Harmony in Schubert, Schubert's Late Music: History, Theory, Style, Schubert's Mature Instrumental Music: A Theorist's Perspective, Analyzing Schubert, Rethinking Schubert, and Returning Cycles: Contexts for the Interpretation of Schubert's Impromptus and Last Sonatas.

    Thank you. Since Pugg indicated interest as well. Let's do it 'publicly.' I love to see analyses of the String Quintet and of any or all of his String Quartets. Less important, but still very nice, would be the Piano Quintet and the String Trios.

    Thanks also, VishnuB, for the book suggestions. They tend to be out of my price range, but I did find a used copy online of Analyzing Schubert by Clark, for $20 (US) which I have ordered. I will keep an eye out for a couple of the others as well. Your help is much appreciated!

    Ike, here are the bibliographic entries from Hoek's book that you requested. I can get these easily through my university, so PM me if you'd like anything.
