This study provides the theoretical grounding for the appearance of the altered recapitulation in Haydns sonata form and proposes methods for analyzing these recapitulations. In the course of the study, the realization grew that the ability of the retransitional dominant to create a turning point in the motion of the progression is a crucial factor in the formation of altered recapitulation. Achieving this dominant forces the progression toward completion. Consequently, delaying this dominant causes a redistribution of areas of tension and relaxation and opens up new possibilities for the elaboration of the large form.
