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

Snoopy

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.
