The melodic line’s interrupted 2ˆ will continue to oneˆ after the repeat of threeˆ and a pair ofˆ in the course of the theme’s concluding a2 part. The a2 part differs from a1 in primary respects. First, the succession from I to IV is intensified by way of a surge on the finish of degree 10: A[ joins the diatonic pitches of I, in an example of dominant emulation. (Thus I➔ IV happens rather than I IV. ) Then, to supply a definitive shut, the phrase’s 3rd degree is revised in order that the tonic can arrive at the final downbeat, the place it really is adorned through 3 suspensions ahead of the emergence of soprano 1ˆ . while IV in degree three used to be luxuriantly prolonged, with its 6-phase chord sounding at forty-one, it is necessary for the dominant to reach in the course of the a2 phrase’s 3rd degree. Haydn is ready to reprise the melody’s day trip as much as B[ in the course of degree eleven (just slightly: B[ is a thirty-second notice! ), but he omits the structurally deeper E[ neighbor to the Kopfton D that sounded in the course of forty-one. My graph [1. 2c] clarifies the foundational constitution by means of imaginatively reinstating the passed over E[ inside parentheses under the excessive B[. In confirmation, the melody’s D and C in the course of 112 continue as though E[ certainly had sounded in any case. That descent maintains to B[ for the PAC in degree 12. This B[ completes the extensive descending 3rd emanating from the Kopfton, as displayed by means of the relationship of D, C, and B[ through the higher beam in 1. 2c. notwithstanding the interruption ends up in the reinstatement of threeˆ after the structural dominant of degree eight, eventually the road does descend to its aim pitch, B[. eleven 12 concord in Haydn and Mozart The idea of harmonic statement is critical either for analytical decision-making and for interpretive offerings in functionality. The pitches B[, D, and F sound jointly twelve occasions in the course of the twelve measures of one. 2a (including at 122, the place F is known yet no longer stated), projecting quite a few structural meanings, as follows: * * * * balance: A root-position I concord happens at eleven, 21, forty two, ninety one, one zero one, and 122. whilst the soprano pitch is B[ (at 21, a hundred and one, and 122), the utmost measure of balance is attained. as the tonic of 122 serves because the target of the wide descent from the Kopfton (as displayed in 1. 2c), it's the such a lot strong of all. prepared for upward bass movement: either one of the first-inversion I harmonies (at 22 and eighty one) continue upwards within the bass, to E[ or to F. The destabilization because of inversion is refined, but, provided that the trajectory of the harmonic development is B[DF in the course of measures 1 via four. Upward bass movement within the context of a surge: whilst inversion and dissonance mix, the tendency for bass D in a first-inversion I concord to continue to E[ (root of IV) is more desirable. in the course of 102 the decreased fifth shaped via D and A[ dynamically propels the strains ahead to the E[ and G of IV.
