Dominant logic: Peter Maxwell Davies’s basic unifying hypothesis.
The Musical Times, 143(1878 (Spring)) pp. 37–45.
It was around the time of his First Symphony (1973-76) that Peter Maxwell Davies stated to think earnestly about the possibility of a work establishing 'its own harmonic rules'. Indeed , up to this point, large scale harmonic organisation in his works of the type found for instance, in the two Taverna fantasias (1962 and 1964) and the Worldes blis (1966-69)- was not then clasified by the composer being nalogous to a tonal procedure.
