I don't know anything about music theory but I am a fanatic when it comes to listening to classical music. For a while I have been curious about a type of chord progression which is very common in classical music but not heard in other types of music. It seems to be very common in Baroque music and seems to get rarer as we move to classical and the romantic period. I can't really describe it. But I can give examples and hope that someone knows what I am talking about.
Usually in a composition, the progression occurs twice but I do have an example below (by Bach) where it occurs three times.
My question is what is this progression or technique called?
I will provide the youtube links and the time intervals where they occur since they can occur multiple times in a video.
Vivaldi - Pick any composition and it will have it at least twice. Here is his "Winter".
First occurrence: 1:08 - 1:20
Second occurrence: 2:50 - 3:02
Vivaldi - Stabat Mater Dolorosa
First occurrence: 1:47 - 2:06
Second occurrence: 4:50 - 5:02
Bach's Trio Sonata # 6 in G - BWV 530 - Vivace
First occurrence: 0:52 - 1:11
Second occurrence: 1:49 - 2:08
Third occurrence: 2:51 - 3:11
I also have the sheet music for this which I am uploading with the chords highlighted.
Measures 49 through 52, I wouldn't call them part of the chord progression as I know it. But then again Bach was a true master and he also has an artistic license. So he is allowed to violate the pattern that I am thinking of. Similarly, for measures 97 through 100 and measures 149 through 152.
Mozart - Piano Concerto # 21 - K.467 - First Movement
First occurrence: 5:15 - 5:27
Second occurrence: 10:44 - 10:55
I am uploading the sheet music for this one too. I am not uploading the entire movement. Just the pages which have the chords I am talking about. The focus is obviously on the piano here.
Then a few more minutes of the piano concerto...
Franz Schubert - Impromptu # 2 in Eb - D.899
First occurrence: 0:28 - 0:34
Second Occurence: 3:22 - 3:30
Uploading the sheet music with only the chords in question.
A couple of minutes of piano...
Schumann - Kreisleriana - Op.16 - 07 - Sehr Rasch
Two back-to-back occurrences: 0:15 - 0:30
