Abstract

Coda can be described as “the part added to the end of a piece or a movement to strengthen the feeling of ending” and one of the most important forms that coda used in effectively is the sonata-allegro form.In many sources, the common belief is that Beethoven is “the first composer to design coda as fundamental element of sonata-allegro”. Despite many characteristic qualities that makes Beethoven codas worth examining, there are few studies on coda analysis in literature.In this study, it’s aimed to examine both the internal structure of a Beethoven coda and the organic bond between the coda and the movement it belongs to. For this purpose, an analysis consisting of four dimensions, including length, harmonic structure, citation and function, is carried out on the coda belonging to the first movement of Opus 7, E-flat Major Sonata, selected from the composer's early piano works, with the help of an original coda analysis method.
