It sounds as if this might be a school assignment, so you can't expect =
us to
do this for you. But just to give you a little start: the opening tonic =
is C
minor, then the second subject (the horn theme) is in the relative major =
Eb major, which essentially lasts to the end of the exposition. You =
identify the development, when you would expect many key changes to take
place, but remember that in this period a key change is not established
(whatever the accidentals seem to show) until there is a cadence in the =
key. So go through the bass line looking for perfect cadences. And you'd
expect a return to C minor towards the end of the movement.

Subject: [kl] Analysis Question

I was wondering if anyone can help me analyze Beethoven's fifth symphony
first movement. I am just at a loss with all those key shifts. Can =
be so helpful as to point out to me as to where I can check where all =
important key changes take place? Thank you so very much in advance.
