Small Binary


Short Answer

  1. the small binary does not bring a return of the basic idea following a contrasting, intervening unit
  2. these letters, which have a specific meaning in relation to the small ternary, do not represent the functional relationships of the small binary
  3. eight
  4. a unit that, following the weak cadential closure of an antecedent, brings a return of the basic idea and a contrasting idea, but does not close with a stronger cadence
  5. following a contrasting middle, the final phrase of the small binary is structured like a consequent, except that its initial 2-m. idea is not the real basic idea of the theme that opened the binary
  6. submediant (VI)
