Binar und ternar
Binary form is a musical form in two related sections, both of which are usually repeated. What Binary is also a structure used to choreograph dance. In music this is usually performed as A-A-B-B.
Binary form was popular during the Baroque periodoften used to structure movements of keyboard binar und ternar. It was also used for short, one-movement binar und ternar. Around the middle of the 18th century, the form largely fell from use as the principal design of entire movements as sonata form and organic development gained prominence. When it is found in later works, it usually takes the form of the theme in a set of variationsor the MinuetScherzoor Trio sections of a "minuet and trio" or "scherzo and trio" movement in a sonatasymphonyetc.
Many larger forms incorporate binary structures, and many more complicated forms such as the 18th-century sonata form share certain characteristics with binary form. Binar und ternar strictly, a piece in binary form is characterized by two complementary, related sections of roughly equal duration, which come up frequently. The first section will start in a certain keyand will usually modulate binar und ternar a related key:.
The second section binar und ternar the piece begins in the newly established key, where it remains for an indefinite period of time. After some harmonic activity, the piece will eventually modulate back to its original key before ending.
More often than not, especially in 18th-century compositions, the A and B sections are separated by double bars with repeat signs, meaning both sections were to be repeated. Binary form is binar und ternar characterised as having the form ABthough since both sections repeat, a more accurate description would be AABB. This second designation points to the fact that there is no great change in character between the two sections.
The rhythms and melodic material used will generally be closely related in each section, and if the piece binar und ternar written for a musical ensemblethe instrumentation will generally be the same.
This is in contrast to the use of verse-chorus form in popular music —the contrast between the two sections is primarily one binar und ternar the keys used. Occasionally, the B section will end with a "return" of the opening material from the A section. In rounded binary, the beginning of the B section binar und ternar sometimes referred to as the "bridge", and will usually conclude with a half cadence in the original key.
Rounded binary is not to be confused with ternary formalso labeled ABA —the difference being that, in ternary form, the B binar und ternar contrasts completely binar und ternar the A material as in, for example, a minuet and trio. Another important difference between the rounded and ternary form is that in rounded binary, when the "A" section returns, it will typically contain only half of the full "A" period, whereas ternary form will end with the full "A" section.
Sometimes, as in the keyboard sonatas of Domenico Scarlattithe return of the A theme may include much of the original A section in the tonic key, so much so that some of his sonatas can be regarded as precursors of sonata form. Rounded binary form is sometimes referred to as small ternary form. Rounded binary or minuet form: If the B section lacks such a return of the opening A material, the piece is said to be in simple binary.
Many examples of rounded binary are found among the church sonatas of Vivaldi including his Sonata No. If the A section ends with an Authentic or Perfect cadence in the original tonic key of the binar und ternar, the design is referred to as a sectional binary. This refers to the fact that the piece is in different tonal sections, each beginning in their own respective keys.
If the A section ends with any other kind of cadence, the design is referred to as a continuous binary. This refers to the fact that the B section will "continue on" with the new key established by the cadence at the end of A. If the A and B sections are roughly equal in length, the design is referred to as symmetrical.
If the A and Binar und ternar sections are of unequal length, the design is referred to as asymmetrical. In such cases, the B section is usually substantially longer than the A section. The asymmetrical binary form begins to be more common than the symmetrical type from about the time of Beethoven onwards, and is almost routine in the main sections of Binar und ternar and Trio or Scherzo and Trio movements in the works of many composers from Beethoven onwards.
In such cases, occasionally only the first section of the binary structure is marked to be repeated. Although most of Chopin's nocturnes are in an overall ternary formquite often the individual sections either the A, the B, or both are in binary form, most often of the asymmetrical variety.
If a section of this binary structure is repeated, in this case it is written out again in full, binar und ternar considerably varied, rather than enclosed between repeat signs. Balanced binary is when the end of the first section and the end of the second section have analogous material and are organized in a parallel way. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
