Mozart, Wolfgang Amadeus: K. 593, String Quintet in D Major.
Mozart?s Piano Sonata No. 2 (K.280) Mvt. I is a rarity in that it follows almost every rule of sonata-allegro form to a ?T.? I consider this a most striking find, since there really wasn?t anything called sonata-allegro form in the classical era. It just happened to be that music was very set in ratio now that we look back on it. Mozart wrote this piece in 1775 when he was just 19 years old.
The K. 593 Quintet in D is from 1790, in Mozart's final period. Scored for two violins, two violas and cellos, it contains a complex opening allegro with a recurring slow introduction as well as an incredible adagio (track 6 in the recording) which you have to hear. It's really one of the great slow movements ever written, IMHO. The Lindsay Quartet, now dissolved, has left a mixed recording.

The example is another Mozart sonata: If we compare this to the previous Mozart example, we see that the voicing is very similar: This illustrates that by using different rhythmic patterns, we can achieve very different textures from the same.

We will do some analysis of excerpts from Mozart and Beethoven that demonstrate the use of these types of progressions. I will also show you how to apply patterns to these progressions to make 3-voice polyphonic passages. We will also look at what I call the circle of fifths progression. The term can cause some confusion, so I want to quickly address that here. We are probably all familiar.
