Listening Exercise 8
1) Please identify and outline the form of the following example. Please give timings of the entry of the sections. (e.g. a section at 0:23, b section at 0:46) A horizontal chart may be helpful. As it is a third movment of a classical symphony, its form should be apparent.
Mozart, Symphony #40: Mvt. 3
2) The following example, the first movement of Beethoven's "Spring" sonata for violin and piano, is in sonata form, as is typical of a first movement. As a sonata we can expect that the work will have an exposition (with two contrasting themes), development (developing one or more of the themes) and recapitulation (featuring an exact return of the first theme and a return of the second theme transposed to the tonic key.) With this structure in mind, please answer the following questions.
a) When does the first theme enter?
b) When does the second theme enter?
c) Is there a repeat of the exposition?
d) When does the development begin?
e) Which themes are developed in the development?
f) When does the recapitulation begin?
g) What is strange about the recapitulation?
h) Is there an introduction? If so, when does it begin and end?
i) Is there a coda? If so, when does it begin and end?
For some of these questions there may not be a "correct" answer.
The entire track runs 10 minutes and 30 seconds.
Beethoven, "Spring" Sonata, Op. 24, mvt. 1
