Musical Theme type: The period

The Period is one of classical music’s more stable theme type. It is characterised by a weak cadence and a returning basic idea.

The phrases involved, called “antecedent” and “consequent” respectively, have a very similar structure. The main difference between each other is harmonical.

The most important elements of the period are the basic idea and the consequent idea. The basic idea is the same discussed in the sentence while the contrasting idea is a particular feature of the period theme.
