    Menuet Vs G Major Essay

    • 1724 Words
    • 7 Pages

    measure twenty-four. The “middleman,” or the quarter note, serves to bridge the eighth notes and cadences together as well as function as giving the movement moments to breathe, almost like a quasi-cadence. Interestingly enough, the quarter notes outline the tessitura of each phrase. Sometimes, the quarter note is a fourth or fifth apart from notes of the phrase. All rhythmic patterns in both the Menuets interconnect to create a smooth melodic line to transition to the cadence, the end goal. My second point I like to elaborate on is the tonal shifts. Music has a starting and ending point. What is different for all composers and their compositions is the middle. In the Baroque period, the piece generally begins on tonic, modulating to the dominant, transitioning back to tonic. Bach follows these conventional standards, yet he is able to invent music in such a way that his counterpoint is able to reflect interest and attention in his melodical ideas. Starting from the beginning, the Menuet spells out a G major chord. Bach has spelled out tonic explicitly, to ensure the performer and listener understands the tonal key as well as presenting irrefutable evidence of G major’s presence. For the most part, scalar passages are used to transition to the end of the first half. It is not until the second half until a shift in tonality occurs. Not only does the G-sharp in measure eleven signify a modulation to A, it demonstrates the need to move forward. Bach carefully crafts the shift…

    like typical setting but it actually has very interesting setting. For the standard setting of string quartets are 4 movements. First movement is usually in sonata form and fast movement in the tonic key. Second movement is slow movement and in a related key. 3rd movement is Minute and trio in the tonic key and the last movement (4th movement) is usually Rondo form or sonata form in the tonic key. However, the sequence of movements of this string Quartet is not matching with this traditional…

    Culture can be reflected and represented through people's traditions, beliefs, values and religions. A dominant culture is when the majority of people in one area such as a country, a city or an island follows the same culture. For the minority group, they need to think if they should accept or reject the dominant culture. Prior to reading Mister Pip by Lloyd Jones, I did not realize that dominant culture could impact people and society in a negative way. However, after seeing majority of white…

    • 3 Pages

    I feel like my dominant listening style is an action oriented for many reasons. One of which is because I am interested first on what will be done, what actions will happen, when and who will do them. My favorite question is, 'so what' which is an aspect of a task oriented person. I look for plans of action, like clear, crisp descriptions and answers. I love structure, bullet-points and numbered action items. It helps me keep me organized, which I like to believe I am (no matter what my mom…
