dc.description.abstract The dissertation identifies three types of tonality: scalicfmodal, melodic, and harmonic. Scalic/modal tonality and melodic tonality are known to have been existent in Antiquity. Messiaen adheres to these ancient types of tonality and also harmonic tonality. Messiaen uses these types of tonality in his own combinations -- his concept of tonality is revealed to be highly complex. en
