This article presents a revisionist approach to form in tonal music from a Schenkerian perspective. Following the work of William Rothstein, form in tonal music is defined as a dynamic interaction of two hierarchical tonal structures, inner and outer forms. The first part of the article defines these structures and their interaction. The second part uses this approach to examine a particular type of dynamic interaction that occurs with the use of auxiliary progressions.
