Bartok Mikrokosmos Auf der Insel Bali
The first bars of the piece all the way up to the 2 bars before the Risoluto are expository. The 2 or 3 bars before the risoluto are transitional to a new section. The first 11 bars of the new section are expository. In bar 12 the melodic gesture is in a new dynamic and register with a different melodic structure so I would consider this developmental. The third section at andante I would consider expository up to the poco rit. AFter then I would consider it terminative.
