Look at the quotation below (figure 1) from the work of Mozart – the Sonata for Piano (K.283) in G major. The chords used by Mozart have been annotated below the stave. Complete the bass part by adding chords including:
Bars 7-10 have been included as well as the last chord, this is, the tonic chord in bar 16. The chords in bar 93-10 demonstrate a perfect cadence in G major.
Now look at how Mozart filled the bass part with the same chords.
Notice the difference between the block chords and the quaver movement in Mozart’s work.
Notice how Mozart uses rests and inverted chords.
Once again, Mozart uses rests and inverted chords.
