More about three-part form

About this item

Description Continues the discussion of ternary form from the preceding program, THREE-PART FORM: TERNARY. Explains how the re-statement in ternary form is modified, in some cases, to provide an intensification of the close, or for purposes of cancelling a key-change at the end of the first part. Introduces the use of the coda or "tail-piece" and stresses its importance. Illustrates the developmental nature of the middle part of ternary form directing attention to the common modulatory processes in this section.
