Haydn's Sting Quartet No. 21, Op.9, No. 3
This piece is in composite ternary form. The A section is a rounded sectional binary form. It is made up of mainly phrase groups. The a is a phrase group ending in a PAC in G major. The b section is also a phrase group with the a section coming back at the end. The B section is also its own rounded simple binary form. Because of these nested forms, it is composite ternary. The piece has a slight waltz feel to it. But I can see it as something that would be performed in Fantasia. I don't know if anyone remembers this, but I always remember the little flying horses. This piece is very playful like those baby flying horses.
