Piano Sonata in Bb K.333 mvt 1 - Mozart
Transcript of Piano Sonata in Bb K.333 mvt 1 - Mozart
Harmony Uses functional harmony* (eg. b63 perfect cadence) - but with some melodic chromaticism and minor harmonies at start of middle section.
• augmented 6th chords b80 and 82
• diminished 7th chords b67 and 69
• minor version of chord IV (Eb-) b79
Texture • melody dominated homophony* - b71-80
• alberti bass* - b71-80
• 'clear' - first 22 bars are almost entirely 2 part
• chords used to draw attention to beginnings or ends of sections - b23
Melody • mainly in RH
• periodic phrasing* - eg. 8 bar phrase b23-30, answered by 8 bar phrase b32-38
• but... Mozart avoids predictability - eg. opens with 4 bar phrase answered by 6 bars.
• often extended by use of sequence
• opens diatonically*, but chromatic inflections are frequent
∆ trill - b150
∆ turn - b164
∆ appoggiaturas (both chromatic - b110 and diatonic - b88) Rhythm and Tempo • simple quadruple time
• syncopation in 1st subject, and more of tendency to continuous semi-quaver movement in the later stages of the second subject
• 1st movement of a Classical 3-movement sonata
• composed in 1783
• intended as much for domestic/instructional purposes as concert use
Performing Context Instrument • piano - instrument of choice at the time*
