After two statements of this phrase with different harmonies, a cadence in C-sharp minor is reached.

The violin now takes the lead with the figures previously heard in piano octaves. The piano plays light arpeggios, first descending and later ascending, where the violin double stops had been. The left hand introduces a strong descending scale figure in detached notes. Here, the violin resumes its original role where it had previously abandoned the double stops. The piano now plays upward instead of downward sweeping arpeggios as the C-sharp minor cadence is reached. B section [m.

The violin figures emerge into a line that runs in counterpoint to the main melody in the piano. It now moves toward B-flat minor. The violin now has the gesture itself in double stops continuing the role reversal from [m. There, the piano moves to a more directly harmonizing role before a cadence.
The violin leads back home over slow piano chords and long bass notes, and then the piano plays a final, highly expressive and chromatic bridge taking over from a violin descent , all over a slowing tempo. The violin takes the bow again for its descending figure. The passage is altered specifically the second statement of the phrase to cadence at home in F-sharp minor rather than C-sharp minor.
This extension quiets as the piano's notes become longer triplet groupings. That instrument muses extensively on the opening repeated notes entirely in double stops as the piano plays light arpeggio fragments and isolated bass notes. There are two waves of this material, each one very slightly increasing in intensity before backing off.
The piano arpeggios themselves soar upward and drop out as the violin reaches the top and then descends. Two quiet clinching rolled chords have their top notes doubled by the violin. The bass has broken octaves in consistent groupings of three notes with an up-down motion. The theme consists of an initial downward leap in longer notes followed by an arching line.
This is given twice, the second time reaching higher in the arching line. The D-minor melody has a strong pull toward A minor. They are interrupted twice by loud outbursts of the head motive from Theme 1, also passed from piano to violin. The piano line diminishes to soft chords, and the violin enters with soft double stops. Two descending low piano notes lead to Theme 2. A noble melody in richly harmonized piano chords with an active bass.
The theme, which begins in C major, makes a very dark turn toward E minor before the violin makes a brief entrance.

The following chords trail down and strongly suggest a cadence in E minor that does not arrive. Through an alteration incorporating a new rising leap, the violin redirects the dark turn so that it will work toward A minor rather than E minor. This statement swells and recedes, and the A- minor cadence is interrupted, then delayed with tension-filled, breathless rests before the hushed arrival.

It begins with quietly running piano figures that wind upward, then come rapidly down in an arpeggio. The music continues with passionate material derived from Theme 1. The motion is temporarily somewhat arrested by questioning violin gestures with short piano responses in rising thirds with octave and chord support. The piano imitates the melody after one last rising third figure under the violin entry. The piano then takes over the actual melody and the violin continues in anticipatory, rather than imitative counterpoint.
The up-down figures move to the left hand. The violin joins the piano on these exciting syncopations, which begin quietly and rapidly increase in volume and tension. The piano left hand has broken octaves on the strong beats. After a series of octave leaps, the syncopations culminate in two strong cadence gestures that continue to obscure the beat. These are echoed by the piano without the violin.
It is extended and metrically displaced. The material is abruptly cut off after the descending arpeggio. It has fewer notes and is accompanied by continuing isolated mid-range piano chords on the weak half of the bar.
The violin melody starts to become syncopated, and slides upward. It begins in B-flat minor. The left hand now plays theme fragments in octaves in C-sharp minor. There is then a turn to E major. The music intensifies, with the violin climbing chromatically in half-steps then jumping an octave and continuing the ascent. The half-steps are broken twice by skips.
The bass octaves and the violin ascent are no longer syncopated, but the right hand chords retain the heavy syncopation. Finally, it reaches F minor. There is a great intensification. It reaches a strong cadence in F minor. The violin plays a passionate line against rushing, perpetually moving piano figuration. The music is somewhat reminiscent of the transition passage from the exposition, into which it leads.

Sonata in A Minor Scarlatti L. Our Catalog. Copyright Tapspace. To the ears of seventeenth and eighteenth-century musicologists like Mattheson, Rousseau and Schubart, the key of D minor represented melancholy, devotion, solemnity and seriousness. And Bach must have had similar ideas, as the opening of this sonata in D minor has an uncertain and emphatically andante sound. Following this tentative start, Bach launches into experimentation, by juggling motifs almost wildly and searching for new keys. The whole piece is constructed like a simple conversation between the two upper parts, accompanied by a continuo bass.
The Adagio the time signature later became Adagio e dolce seems to be an elegant, uncomplicated flute duet. The final movement, an exuberant Vivace, definitely makes more technical demands on the organist. In its form, this two-part fugue resembles a rondo, with a catalogue of imitating triplet figures jumping from part to part, in between the repetitions of the theme. It is a very special instrument from
