(musTh211) Assignment 11: Augmented Sixth Chord Analysis

Due Friday 9/28:

Wkbk: p. 282, #7 (Schumann, “Die Beiden Grenadiere,” Op. 49, No. 1)

  • There is a recording available on the Naxos Music Library (search for “Schumann beiden grenadiere”, ignore the “did you mean…” message, and pick the first result). This excerpt interrupts what would be the second verse.
  • This excerpt includes modal mixture, several modulations, and augmented sixth chords.
  • Begin your analysis in g minor, although it modulates away fairly quickly.
