Measure 9 of the Moonlight- Going from Couch to Concert Hall One Measure at a Time

Uncategorized Nov 17, 2020

Moving on. Measure 9 is a bit of a relief.

The harmony is E Major, with a slight shift to e minor as you move to measure 10. 

I love this piece because the shifting harmonies remind me of the shifting colors of a vibrant sunrise or sunset. 

Color changes are significant, but it is difficult to pinpoint the exact place where bright salmon pink changed to a velvety midnight blue. 

Beethoven often changed harmonies by moving one key.
