What features of Corelli's 'Trio Sonata in D' illustrate that this piece was composed in the Baroque Era?
- Clear Binary form with 2 contrasting, repeated sections (A bars 1-19, B bar 20-end)
- Last movement of a 4 movement Sonata da Chiesa
- Gigue influences - use of 6/8 time signature gives strong dotted crotchet pulse, allegro tempo
- Fugal influences - use of 'subject' (bar 1 vln 1) and 'real answer' (bar 3 vln 2)
- Use of Tonality to emphasize Binary structure (modulations to dominant in A section and more modulations in B)
- Mixture of triadic (first beat bar 1), disjunct (bar 42 vln 1) and conjunct (bar 28-31 vln 1)
- Use of sequences (bar 28-31 vln 1) <-- descending sequence
- Fugal influences and consequently imitative.
- Diatonic and functional
- Functional harmony…
