Sample text

Rather than attempt such complex and unconvincing analysis, I believe it is more helpful to recognize that the pitch material in these bars is less memorable and recognizable than the obviously repeated gestures in other bars. Performers and listeners can play or hear these measures in varied ways, but I ¤nd it counterproductive to try to label each of these gestures. Instead I just consider them as ¤ller material between the other gestures. Filler material is not a term of disparagement; these gestures are beautifully ®uid and create a sense of movement toward the next occurrence of one of the labeled gestures.

Instead, the secondary dominant is followed by another dominant seventh chord: this weakens the sense of resolution and emphasizes the sense of forward motion. Some of the individual chords in this prelude are marked as linear (L) chords to indicate that they result more from melodic activity or contrapuntal motion than from harmonic function. The G2 chord in bar 14 leads linearly to an A3 chord rather than functionally to a tonic C6 chord as might be expected; the vi ø3 chord in bar 79 results from linear motion between the tonic chord in bar 78 and the dominant chord in bar 80.

A melodic se- quence consists of an initial melodic gesture followed by one or more additional statements of this gesture that transpose the initial gesture to a different pitch location. Analysis of melodic sequences involves determining the metric location of the start of the initial gesture, the number of bars in the initial gesture, the number of subsequent gestures or sequential repetitions, the interval between the sequential repetitions, and whether the melodic material in the transposed variants is repeated exactly with the same basic interval structure or freely with altered interval structure.
