The Piano Sonata in A minor D. Composed in May and entitled Premiere Grande Sonata, it is the first of three sonatas published during the composer's lifetime, the others being D. Conceived as Allegro - Franz Schubert - Maurizio Pollini - Wanderer-Fantasie / Klaviersonate a-moll D. 845 - Pian set, these works were composed during what was reportedly a period of relatively good health and spirits for Schubert, and are praised for their quality and ambition.
The first movement is composed in an atypical sonata form  . A plaintive, Juliane Werding - Hotel Royal ominous pianissimo unison octave phrase ornamented with a mordent opens the work, with a contrasting chordal consequent.
The rhythmically similar first and second subjects of the exposition are not clearly separated structurally, a feature continued later in the ambiguous segue into the recapitulation. The relative major C, as well as the submediant F major, play major structural and dramatic roles in this and later movements. The movement is generally quiet and tense, punctuated by dramatic climaxes and a stentorian coda.
The second movement comprises 5 variations on a simple bar, two-section theme with elements of counterpoint and chromaticism.
The variations generally undergo progressive rhythmic subdivisionwith a parallel minor variation followed by a key change that prepares a conclusive return to the tonic for the final variation.
This format, which avoids tonal monotony and produces a sense of departure and return, is identical to that of Schubert's Impromptu D no. The first variation introduces an eliding chromatic figuration that accompanies the otherwise largely unaltered theme.
The second variation is A Friend Of Mine - The Grateful Dead - Pain In My Heart energetic, liberally ornamented scherzando with ongoing chromatic and minor touches. The bleak, dramatic third variation is in the parallel minorwith a remarkable use of dissonance and a focus on the minor second Db.
This note prepares the key change to the submediant Ab major in variation four, a virtuosic run of fast 32nd notes that makes heavy use of chromaticism and idiomatic pianistic figurations.
The final variation, back in C major, Captain Sensible - The Damned - Interviewed At Goldiggers 25:3:83 comparatively simple, with repeated chords in eighth note triplets and a pastoral quality.
It retains the focus on Db from the previous variation, as well as minor key sections, tying together the movement. The piece ends with a brief coda and a plagal cadence. In most printed versions, the first variation is not exact: 4 measures corresponding to m. This discrepancy was first pointed out by Paul Badura-Skoda. The Wiener Urtext edition provides an emendation with the note: "Passage in smaller print - editor's suggested insertion - totally missing in [First Edition], probably due to engraver's error when changing to new page.
Inconceivable that Schubert Avenger - Ironsword - Promo-Tape/98 deliberately omit four measures here since there is complete conformity in the other variations. The First Edition is the primary Better Is One Day - Matt Redman - Blessed Be Your Name: The Worship Songs of Matt Redman Vol.
1 since the autograph itself is lost. In compound ternary formthe shadowy, mercurial scherzo plays off of elements of the first movement in particular the V-I-V-I chord sequence from second themeand synthesizes, Diseased - Contre Jour - Passion And Fall, and summarizes harmonic and thematic relationships from throughout the sonata, an approach Schubert used in the scherzi in his mature piano sonatas.
Odd phrase lengths, subito effects, and unprepared distant modulations give the scherzo a quirky character. The pastoral F major trio, a gently rocking interlude with soft dynamics, is in stark contrast. This movement is in sonata rondo form with foreshortened recapitulation. The toccata-like rondo theme, like the allegro and scherzo themes, begins in A minor and soon modulates to C major.
The V-I-V-I chord sequence featured in the first and third movements again appears prominently in the intervening episodes. The movement is economical, especially for a Schubert finale, and ends briskly with an accelerando closing section. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Movements [ edit ].
