Sample text

More complex ternary forms mitigate the squareness of the basic arrangement, by using transitional sections, and sometimes also ornamentation in the reprise. Simple Rondo The rondo form simply extends the principles seen in ternary form: (statement, contrast, reprise. There are several contrasting episodes and the starting material returns after each one. This form is fairly naive, but it can be refined by: • • • • varying the reprises (including abbreviation). varying the transitions into and out of the main theme.

Repeated cadencing. st (repertoire example) Beethoven, Symphony #5, 1 movement, m. 491-end. • short development-like digressions, which however return to their starting points more quickly and predictably than they would in a real development. These digressions momentarily increase tension, and the desire for resolution. When the resolution arrives, its effect is thus stronger. st (repertoire example) Beethoven, Symphony #7, 1 movement, m. 391 ff: The coda starts with a remote modulation, in the manner of a development section, but quickly returns to the home key, where the music remains, while developing momentum for a final climax.
