Title: O harmónii v hudbe (In memoriam Juraj Beneš)
Author: Markéta Štefková

Abstract: The author of the study points to the significance of Juraj Beneš’s theory of harmony based on a hypothesis of existence of some kind of an “Interval System”, in which the important position is occuppied by intervals of a perfect fifth, minor second and a tritone. She explains Beneš’s concept of history of harmonic thinking development as a gradual exposure and disclosure of potential possibilities of the System and as a course from “suboctave” via “octave” to “supraoctave” music mind. After that she presents her own ideas related to the essence of harmony and she offers some new arguments based on mathematical, acoustic and systematic dispositions of a series of overtones and their evaluation in the works of outstanding theorists and composers of the past in favour of the validity of Beneš’s theses on hierarchy of intervals. Closing her contribution the author points to the significance of Beneš’s elaboration of the ideas of significant Slovak music theorist Miroslav Filip, published in his work Vývinové zákonitosti klasickej harmónie (Evolutional Principles of Classical Harmony, 1965).
