Schubert's Bi‐rotational Sonata Forms: Developmental Function and the Type 1–2 Hybrid

Schubert's Bi‐rotational Sonata Forms: Developmental Function and the Type 1–2 Hybrid Schubert's early string quartets reveal a tendency towards bi‐rotational designs combining elements of type 1 (lacking a development section) and type 2 (beginning their second rotation off‐tonic) sonata form. Examples of the practice are found in first movements, slow movements and finales and encompass at least nine movements from the ten quartets composed between 1810 and 1815. Owing in part to their difficult reception history, these works have not yet been utilised to evaluate the applicability of sonata theory's typology of sonata forms to early nineteenth‐century repertoire, even though they seem uniquely well placed to do so. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Music Analysis Wiley

Abstract

Schubert's early string quartets reveal a tendency towards bi‐rotational designs combining elements of type 1 (lacking a development section) and type 2 (beginning their second rotation off‐tonic) sonata form. Examples of the practice are found in first movements, slow movements and finales and encompass at least nine movements from the ten quartets composed between 1810 and 1815. Owing in part to their difficult reception history, these works have not yet been utilised to evaluate the applicability of sonata theory's typology of sonata forms to early nineteenth‐century repertoire, even though they seem uniquely well placed to do so.
