Chapter 8
IMPORTANT TERMS:
-Piano: Dynamic, meaning soft. (p 212)
-Minuet and trio:
Commonly, in the eighteenth century, a movement of a symphony, string
quartet, or other work; the 'trio” is a contrasting minuet, after which the
first minuet returns. (page 219)
-Sequence:
Short passage of music that is repeated several times, at progressively higher
or lower pitches; also, in Christian liturgy, a long poem appended to the Alleluia
of the Mass, with a syllabic musical setting. (page 219)
-First-movement sonata form:
Form most often used in first movements of symphonies, sonatas, and other
instrumental works of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries,
consisting primarily of exposition, development, recapitulation, and coda. (page
220)
-Development:
Process of exploring and reworking different musical materials; in first-
movement sonata forms, the main middle section, in which melodies and
motives from the first section (exposition) are fragmented, recombined, and
used in combination with modulation. (page 220)
-Retransition:
In sonata form, passage at the end of the development that leads to the
recapitulation. (page 220)
-Recapitulation:
Third main section of first-movement sonata form, paralleling the exposition, but
ending in the home key. (page 220)
-Coda:
(Italian, 'tail”) Ending section of a first-movement sonata or other
movement. (page 221)
