Bach, French Suite in E major, Polonaise
The expository A section of this piece can be classified as closed simple binary form. Each phrase is 4 measures long making it parrallel and symmetric. It has tewo cadences; the first being a PAC, and the second modulating into B Major. This is where the B section begins. This is a double period with a PAC at measure 16. The B section does quote the A theme and develops it in the latter half. This then ends with a half cadence and then a PAC. I really honsetly didn't care for this piece too much, so here's the basic analysis....give me some Glass...
