    This article will discuss the application of Friedrich Daniel Ernst Schleiermacher’s (1768-1834) hermeneutical methods to a general reading of Tchaikovsky’s fantasy-overture, Romeo and Juliet. The German philosopher gave a lecture series on hermeneutics at the University of Berlin in 1819, and from his research on the subject he invariably redefined this field of philosophical thinking. The central elements of his ‘whole and parts’ theory will be discussed as an alternative mode of investigative music analysis.
