beethoven c minor
This movement is in sonata rondo form, which kind of confuses cuz we have already analyzed it as a rondo. I guess this just shows how similar the two are. The A section has three themes while the B section has two. The C section also has three themes. The A section is in c minor. The B section is in E flat major. The C section is in F minor. This piece is a combination of the rondo and sonata principles because of the number of themes in each section and their ensuing development. There is also a strong binary and sectional feel because of all the development.
