This phrase serves as a transition to the second theme, where modulations often occur. It can be divided into two groups: group 1 from measure 27 to 34 and group 2 from measure 35 to 50. The first group features broken V chords that establish the C minor key.

Beethoven Piano Sonata No. 8 in C minor, Op. 13, 1. Grave - Allegro di molto e con brio

Snoopy

From 11th measure, The first theme of exposition begins in c minor. The theme consists of 8 measures which can be divided into two parts. The upward motion in the first 4 measures is tensive while downward motion in the following 4 measures is relaxative. This motif is developed by imitating X and Y of introduction part. While the first theme maintains on the pedal point tone of tonic, the melody of upper voice is going upward chromatically, then going downward with harmonic changes.

Beethoven Piano Sonata No. 8 in C minor, Op. 13, 1. Grave - Allegro di molto e con brio

Snoopy

The theme is introduced in the first four measures in C minor. This part creates a sequence consisting of an antecedent phrase and a consequent phrase. The antecedent phrase moves from the tonic to the dominant chord, while the consequent phrase proceeds in the opposite direction. The repetitive dynamic fp is characteristic of Beethoven’s music, used to create the effect of a sudden reversal. This passage gradually ascends and modulates to G minor in the third measure. Then, it expands and prolongs the motif until another modulation to E♭ major through short and strong rhythms.

Rachmaninoff Prelude in G minor, Op. 23, No. 5

Yumin_Kim

The winter street where snow falls, and the wind blows gently, coldly. Within the chilling embrace of the heart, memories, frozen over time, subtly flow out in a lonely melody. Shadows of love and tears of parting intertwine like ice, resonating with a cold sound in the flow of life.
Emotions concealed in the darkness transmit with a frozen echo, and time gradually approaches silence in the midst of darkness.
