Bach wrote many Bourrees in his time as well as other composers such as Handel. The piece is in 4/4 and has 2 upbeat quavers for each phrase and a two quaver followed by a crotchet rhythm throughout the movement. Occasionally a phrase ends with a dotted minim. This is in bars 9, 14, 18 and 26 at the end. There are two parts to the piece which are the treble and bass of the piece.
In each of these variations Mozart had used themes, compositional devices and classical features to unite the piece. These classical features fit into three concepts of music. These are duration, texture and structure. It also affects the atmosphere. The finale consists of 5 variations and the allegretto con variationi.
Analysis and Comparison of the Clarinet and Viola Versions of the Two Sonatas by Brahms Name Institution Introduction Johannes Brahms, a romantic composer, did two clarinet sonatas Op. 120, 1 and 2 in 1894. Brahmas wrote the two works for clarinet and piano, and dedicated them to his clarinetist friend Richard Mühlfeld (Musgrave, 1985; Swafford, 1997). The clarinet sonata was largely underdeveloped with regards to its form until the completion of the two sonatas, when the combination of piano and clarinet was used in the subsequent works. The two composition are significant among Brahms other works as they stem from a period in Brahms life when he just embraced the beauty of color and sound of the clarinet.
In the Bryan Symphony Orchestra, the was Franz Schubert’s Symphony No. 8 B Minor, “unfinished,” D. 759 has Allegro Moderato in B minor and Andante con moto in E major, while the Sergei Rachmaninoff’s Concerto No. 3 for Piano and Orchestra, OP. 30 has Andante con moto in E major, Intermezzo: Adagio (F sharp minor/D flat major), and Finale: Alla breve (D minor → D major). The first section was Franz Schubert’s Symphony No.
Discuss the principle differences and similarities between the orchestra used by Handel and Mozart, and how the composers wrote for them. Handel’s Water Music Suite no. 3 was composed in 1717 and uses a relatively large orchestra for this early Baroque period. Mozart’s Horn Concerto No.4 was composed in 1787 and uses a relatively large orchestra for this time. Both of the pieces also had different purposes, the Handel was written as a celebration for the king.
There are also broken chord accompaniments, and a falling motif in bar 1 which help convey the mood. Also the aforementioned rubato is used, towards the end of the B section and in the codetta. Chopin also uses virtuosic display in bars 79-80, bar 17 and bar 4 to make the piece more ornamented and impressive. Ranges of dynamics are used, particularly in bar 35, and bars 27-28. Sostenuto and sotto voce are also used to convey the poetic mood.
Sonata Form Topic: Sonata Form Thesis: Analysis of the classical structure and key characteristics of sonata form to create a musically effective work. Introduction The term ‘sonata-form’ is the form in which the first movement of a sonata is typically written in. It is usually the most dramatic movement and stresses an exciting development of short motives, and like all other movements of the sonata, presents its own motifs and themes. History The word ‘sonata’ comes from the Italian for sounding. Typically, it is defined as an instrumental genre in several movements for soloist or an ensemble; however, throughout the different musical periods in history, it has taken on a range of meanings and been applied in a number of different contexts.
The first, which we will refer to as motive A, consists of a dotted half-note followed by a dotted eighth and sixteenth note. Example: Motive A The second, which will be referred to from this point on as motive B, consists of a half-note tied to an eighth note, followed by three straight eighth notes in a row. Motive B From the outset of the piece, we can hear that this is a symphony in which Beethoven begins to experiment with new sounds. The first gesture of the piece – a V7-I – would be normal for a symphony were it not for the fact that it is in the key of the IV (F); it is followed by deceptive motion in the tonic. Measure three visits the secondary dominant (V/V) and follows with a cadence to G major, where the material remains harmonically until the first tonal area at measure thirteen; very much extra tension is caused through this extended centering on the dominant which culminates in measures eleven to twelve and is what makes the arrival of the first tonal area so exciting.

Chopin uses ternary structure in the Raindrop prelude, which is a typical structure in Romantic music. It consists of the first section to the second section then back to the first section. Section A starts from bar 1 to bar 27 and section B is from bar 28 to bar 75, showing that section A is shorter. In section A, the melody is long and heard several times, while in section B, a new melody is heard mainly in the bass. The melody is played in the right hand in section A and moves to the left in section B.
