Transcript of Moving to V through VII (major)

Dvorak cello concerto
VII slides to V7
The F# major chord here
would usually be a V of iii (B minor)
BUT IT DOESN'T! It SKIPS (elides) that resolution to iii
and instead goes STRAIGHT TO V7!
moving from I to V:

different routes

F major G minor
Beethoven: Symphony #2, 1st movement Development

2nd theme - Development section so not in I or V
Bass climbs through G-G#-A-A#-B
(which should be V of E = vi)
BUT! He keeps climbing to B# ( = viio7 of VII!)
VII (major)
(in this section it sounds actually like the key of F#, not C# - he deceives our perception because C# major chord also = V of F#)
goes directly to
