Transcript of Analysis Final Presentation

The Allegro maestoso movement of Mozart's Concerto in G Major for Flute is a sonata form, with the exposition encompassing two theme groups that transform from G major to D major, and both theme groups recurring in G major during the recapitulation. The main theme, a ritornello, is used throughout the movement, and the development makes use of many motives found throughout the exposition.
Flute Concerto in G Major, K. 313
I. Allegro maestoso

Primary/Ritornello Theme: G Major
Transition Theme Group (3 motives)
Secondary Theme: D Major
Closing Material (2 motives)
Primary/Ritornello Theme: G Major
Transition Theme Group (3 motives)

Starts in V, then two Circles of 5ths:

d a e

a D G C D
Understanding that this movement is in sonata-allegro form, and that the main theme is a ritornello, the listener will be able to recognize the start of each section of the movement. Additionally, by knowing the locations of the repetitions of the themes, the flutist can adjust his/her performance to emphasize the repetition through articulation and ornamentation.
