extended parallel motion
What is the primary use of 6/3 chords?
What interval helps organize the outer voices when using 6/3 chords?
How many voices are typical in a passage using 6/3 chords?
by alternating doublings
How can one write 6/3 chords in succession with four voices, but avoid parallel octaves?
parallel perfect 5ths
What would occur if one wrote the outer voices in parallel 10ths when using successive 6/3 chords?
double voice exchange
the soprano has a voice exchange with the bass that shifts it into a higher register and allows it to end an octave higher (made of two 6ths and two 10ths)
a 5/3 chord
What is produced when using a double voice exchange?
by a half step
When using the 6/3 as a neighbor chord, how does the bass line usually move?
to connect a root position triad with its first inversion
What is the most typical use of a passing 6/3 chord?
How does a chord with a 6th substituting for a 5th function?
an apparent augmented 6/3 triad
What will result if a 6th decorates or substitutes for a 5th over V in minor?
a point of relative repose marking the end of a phrase and hence serving as the "goal" of that phrase; the musical equivalent of punctuation
a more or less complete musical idea that ends with a cadence
any grouping smaller than a phrase that is a constituent of that phrase
most often a short melodic fragment, which through repetition (often transformed or varied) lends coherence to a piece
a pair of consecutive interdependent phrases that together form a larger unit; the combination of the antecedent and the consequent phrase
describes any piece of movement that consists of precisely two sections
the first section ends on tonic
the first section doesn't end on tonic
a relatively complex type of rounded binary, consisting of an exposition, development, and recapitulation
describes any piece or movement that consists of precisely three sections; example: the minuet-trio-minuet movement of the classical era sonata
describes a section which constitutes a return (more often than not varied) of the opening section of a work after one of more intervening sections; essentially a very large-scale example of parallelism
apparent 7th chord
a chord that, on paper, looks like a 7th chord, but is actually just a result of a passing tone
it must occur in an inner voice, and an immediately lower voice must move up in parallel 3rds to provide the pitch of resolution
What are the two stipulations for transferred resolution?
only if the upper voice moves by step
When is similar motion to octaves and fifths allowed?
a note or chord that is less important in relation to strong/weak beats or the harmonic progression
a note or chord that is more important in relation to strong/weak beats or the harmonic progression
the addition of subordinate notes or chords to help fill out a passage of music
the subtraction of subordinate notes or chords to help simplify a passage of music
perfect authentic cadence
an authentic cadence with both V and I in root position where the principal upper voice cadences on scale degree 1, approaching it by step from either above or below
