  • Schumann: Tonality
    • No.1
      • G major
      • Modulation to E minor
        • Bar 12
        • Resolution to tonic is surprisingly avoided.
    • No. 3
      • B minor
      • Modulation to G major
        • Bars 9-10
      • Emphatic dominant preparation
        • Bars 15-16
    • No. 4
      • Key wavers between E minor and G major
      • E minor is suggested by initial 1-Vb progression at the start
        • Chromatic lower parts blur the sense of key
      • G major is established in bars 3-4
        • Continues to imperfect cadence
          • Bar 8
      • 'Schneller' (faster) section starts at E minor
        • Confirms with cadence in bar 9
          • Continues to C major in bar 12
            • Accented B in bar 12 wrenches the key back towards E minor
      • Transient Modulations
        • Via secondary dominants
          • A minor in bars 21-22
          • B minor in bars 23-24
