ベートーヴェン <--- Beethoven

Blog #13

B. Ludwig van Beethoven, Piano Sonata in C Major, Op. 53 (Waldstein), first movement, mm. 74-92 (p. 40) CD 1.55

Roman numerals
M79: I
M80: IV, ii6
M81: i64, V7
M82: I, I6, iv
M83: V86-75

Key: CM
M84: I, I6, IV
M85: V
M86: I
M87: I

Key: IV FM
M86: V, I6, IV
M87: V
M88: VI, I6, IV
M89: I64,
M90: V864-753

There is a sequence in the three keys. It appears in m. 81 and goes through till m85 and then again in m86 till 89. It is in groups of 2 measures and it is transposed down a third. The sequences helps it transition from EM to CM to FM then to DM. It has a forward motion moving it towards the new key in the development.

This piece sounds pretty neat and makes me want to practice. Weird!
