Mozart Piano Sonata K. 333 III

This movement is in Bb Major and the primary section starts out with a HC at measure 4 and a PAC at 8. This is expository material that is just essentially repeated twice. Next is a transitional area that brings the movement to the dominant at measure 21.

The alternating section is 21-41 where the tonality is a little less structured. There's a PAC at 36, and then a 4 bar transition back into A material in the dominant key. This is basically identical to the first A section.

The C section is much louder and in d minor which is the relative minor to the dominant of the original key. There is a PAC at the end of the first 8 bars of the section. There is alot more chromaticisim going on after that which ultimately brings us back to Bb major and the A section once again.

The D section is somewhat similar to B but not similar enough, So it's stil with it. It feels as though Mozart has returned to the A section at 173, but he was joking....he finally transitions at 189 bringing us back into A.

Starts out with a HC? I'm a little confused, but I assume it was just a typo.

I know this is a little late, but oh well. Um, unless I have a different edition (I'm using the Burkhart anthology) of the piece, the C section DOES NOT got to d minor, but rather g minor. Infact, I don't it see it going to d minor anywhere. I see some Db major, but not d minor. Second, the 6th section of the sonata rondo form in this piece has to B', everything in this section is based off material from the first B section, EVERYTHING. if you hear it as D, sorry, but your wrong.

I'm studying this piece in an Form and Analysis class , and it has been clearly argued in this class that m.4 in Mvment 1 is ends the antecedent on an IAC. And would most definitely argue with the concept of the first phrase ending on m.8, because mm.7-8 are can be viewed as unnecessary to the scope of the phrase, and this new musical idea, and therefore can be viewed as an interpolation (*it has also been argued that mm. 5-6 could be viewed as the interpolation, and not 7-8. You cannot remove them BOTH from the phrase structure however, just one.*). This is also reinforced by the listening of where the end of the phrase actually ends, which I would argue is m. 10. I would then argue that this period is not symettrical, but assymetrical because the added musical information makes this consequent ending on m. 10 six measures long. I would also argue that this material is also a contrasting period and essentially not a repetition as you have stated it is, unless I am reading your analysis wrong.

thanks so much, have a great day,
