haydn piano sonata
this piece is a 5 part rondo in D major. it is composite because the A section is a rounded binary form. The a section is a double period. The B section is in the parallel minor of d minor. It is somehwat unstable and is a string of phrase groups. The A section returns with no transition and repeats as expected. The C section comes in as the subdominant of D, that is G. The style is different here and we see more uses of 16th notes. It is also a string of phrase groups. Then at bar 81 we see a transition occuring to bring us back to our final statement of A. The A section repeats as expcted and ends quite full with a very terminitve feeling.
