Inversions of the Dominant 7th

#63 Sonata - Beethoven



  1. What is the chord progression for m1-3?

  2. Which measures are the same as m1-3?

  3. Where are the cadences and what type are they?

  4. What is the phrase stucture of this excerpt?

#64 Sarabande - Rameau



  1. How many voices are there in this excerpt?
  2. What are the squiggly things called? Are they all the same? How are they meant to be played?
  3. Analyze the harmonies. You will have to think carefully here because of the way the voices overlap at times. Make sure you account for every sounding voice when you try to analyze a chord. Take each bass note and figure out what notes are sounding in the other two voices. In some cases, the tenor voice moves on the off-beat, creating a chord tone for half of the beat and a non-chord tone for the other half (or sometimes actually creates a new chord possiblitiy). So you must look at every 8th note beat to really see what's happening.

#65 Trio - Haydn

  1. What key is this in? Hint: don't rely on the key signature only!
  2. Which two instruments play the same melodic line? Are they in the same octave?
  3. Analyze the chords.
