 Symphony No. 45 (Haydn) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It is in the key of F-sharp minor, and is one of Haydn's better known works from this period.
It opens a manner typical of Haydn's Sturm und Drang period, with descending minor arpeggios in the first violins against syncopated notes in the second violins and held chords in the winds.
The movement can be explained structurally in terms of sonata form, but it departs from the standard model in a number of ways (just before the recapitulation, for example, new material is introduced, which might have been used as the second subject in the exposition in a more conventional work).

 Key signature
Subsequent additional sharps are added on C, G, D, A, E and B. For key signatures with flats, the first flat is placed on the B line, with subsequent flats on E, A, D, G, C and F. There are 15 different key signatures, including the "empty" signature of C major/A minor.
Baroque music written in minor keys often was written with a key signature with fewer flats than we now associate with their keys; for example, movements in C minor often had only two flats.
For example, if a one-sharp key signature is placed at the beginning of a piece, every F in the piece in any octave will be played as F sharp, unless there is an accidental.

 B-flat minor - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
B-flat minor is a minor scale based on B-flat, consisting of the pitches B-flat, C, D-flat, E-flat, F, G-flat, A and B-flat (harmonic minor scale).
Domenico Scarlatti wrote just two keyboard sonatas in B-flat minor, K. 128 and K. B-flat minor is the flattest key he ever used for a sonata.
In the German language, the pitch B-flat is called B, so B-flat minor is called B-moll.

Prelude and Fugue a 3 in E-flat/D-sharp minor The E-flat minor prelude is paired with a fugue in D-sharp minor.
Prelude and Fugue a 5 in C-sharp Minor Bach rarely used the key of C-sharp minor; his best-known work in this key is the Adagio from the Violin Concerto in E major.
A prelude in E-flat minor from the CBWF was at Bach’s disposal, as was a previously composed fugue in D minor.

 Music Theory-Scale
The melodic minor scale in its ascending form smoothed out the offensive interval by sharping a second tone-A B C D E F-sharp G-sharp (A)-and, needing no leading tone in its descending form, retained the descending natural minor scale-A G F E D C B (A).
The major and minor scales that have dominated Western music since about 1650 are, strictly speaking, two modes of the basic diatonic scale: the major mode, exemplified by C D E F G A B (C); and the minor mode, exemplified by A B C D E F G (A).
By the late 19th century, because of the ever-increasing use of sharped and flatted tones, Western music was based not on diatonic scales, but on a chromatic scale: 12 tones within the octave, all a half-step apart-C C-sharp D D-sharp E F F-sharp G G-sharp A A-sharp B (C).

 Key signatures: what are all those sharps and flats?
The relative minor is A minor, meaning that it has the same key signature as C major – no sharps and no flats.
(A to C is a minor third.) E to G is a minor third (C to G is a fifth), and G to C is a fourth.
An accidental is a note that’s written with a sharp, flat, or natural sign in front of it to indicate that it’s different than what’s in the key signature.

 C minor
C minor (abreviated Cm) is a minor scale based on C, consisting of the pitches C, D, E-flat, F, G, A-flat, B and C (harmonic minor scale).
In the Baroque, music in C minor was usually written with a two-flat key signature, and some modern editions of that repertoire keep it that way.
Since Beethoven's usage, C minor has been associated with heroic struggle, with the quintessential work in the key being Beethoven's Symphony No. 5 in C minor.

 Musical Insights Vol. 1 - Warren Gooch - Tonal Axis in Ravel's Sonatine: A Macro-Analytical Discussion
Also, the passage marks a shift in secondary tonal centers from "flat" keys (B-flat minor, F minor, E-flat minor) to "sharp" keys (B minor, A major, C-sharp minor*), as shown in figure 3.
Recall that this passage consists of oscillating E and A-sharp chords, which indeed DO frame the tonal axis at the interval of a minor third.
Together with A-sharp, E adds substantially to the structure of the movement, and for this reason, its inclusion in the tonal axis can be justified.

 Music Theory Notes
The relative minor scales are built on the sixth scale degree of the major scale and retain the same key signature.
Example: a-sharp is played by the same piano key as b-flat; d-sharp is the same piano key as e-flat; and g-sharp is the same as a-flat.
is a pattern of sharps or flats that appears at the beginning of a staff and indicates that certain notes are to be consistently raised or lowered.

 DRAM - View Note for Sonata in A minor, Op. 37: I. Molto Allegro - Database of Recorded American Music
The first statement of the refrain is in A minor, the first couplet is in C-sharp major, and the next ver­sion of the refrain is in A-sharp minor, a variation on the first featuring invertible counterpoint.
is as follows: Theme, in C-sharp minor Aeolian mode, a slow march; Variation 1, F major Mixolydian mode, rather quicker; Variation 2, C minor Dorian, slow and pensive; Variation 3, E major Lydian, a minuet; and Variation 4, C-sharp minor Phrygian, a barcarolle.
This is especially noticeable in the connection between A minor and B major in the exposition, and from B major back to A minor via a different route, from the exposition to the development.

 Basic Chords on the Mountain Dulcimer
This particular fingering may also be used as a B minor chord, because it has the root on the middle string, and the minor third of the chord on the bass and melody strings.
The minor triad has a root and a fifth are the same as in the major triad, but the third is, naturally enough, a minor third instead of a major third.
Minor chords are shown with a small m after the chord letter, Em, or F#m, for example.

 Twentieth Century Pitch Theory:
All B-flats in all octaves are members of the same pitch class; A-sharp and B-flat are members of the same pitch class.
The identity, or size, of an interval expressed as a number of semitones without regard to (1) spelling, (2) octave compounding, or (3) inversion; the minor third C-natural
", etc. In tonal music, spelling counts; there is an enormous functional difference found in tonal music between B-flat and A-sharp.

 D major
Its relative minor is B minor, and its parallel minor is D minor.
Even so, the clarinet in B-flat is still often used for music in D major, and is perhaps the sharpest key that is practical for the instrument.
There are composers, however, who in writing a piece in D minor with B-flat clarinets, will have them change to clarinets in A if the music switches to D major.

Like the traditional pitch-class names, the traditional names of intervals are also biased by notions of tonal context; for instance, in tonal music, a minor 7th (say, C up to B-flat) and an augmented 6th (C up to A-sharp) are different intervals.
The perfect 4th and perfect 5th are said to be "inverses" of each other, as are the minor 3rd and major 6th, the major 2nd and minor 7th, and so on.
Since such contexts are absent in non-tonal music, however, enharmonically paired intervals are also now equivalent: both a minor 7th and an augmented 6th are simply counted as an interval of 10 semitones.

 Jazzcorner's Speakeasy - A Minor Happy Tune?
Jewish music is full of minor tonalities in songs played at a fast tempo, creating a joy tinged with something less joyous, in my opinion, a very nice complexity, but with happiness being dominant.
And of course, many songs are written with changes that go from a major to a minor to a major all in the first 4 measures.
I wish I could remember who said this because I know it was someone of great prominece, but that someone once said, "B-flat is not the same note as A-sharp." A great statement to illustrate notes in context to other notes.

However, the note name B-sharp is necessary in certain instances such as the key of C-sharp major where B-sharp is the seventh note (leading tone) or A-sharp minor where B-sharp is the second note (supertonic).
This pitch has no solfggio representation because the actual pitch is the same as the tonic or eighth note (C) in the fixed do system.

 Berg: Analysis Four Songs, Op. 2 No. 1 and 2
The key signature of e-flat minor is elusive, but can be explained in the context of the opening of the next song of the set (in a-flat minor).
The first few measures can be analyzed using traditional chord descriptions: the d minor in measure 2, followed in 6 by b-flat dominant 6/5, and in 7 a b-half diminished 6/5.
The chord on the downbeat of measure 5 (d with a minor 7th and both a major and minor third) will recur often in the piece.

 MTO 10.4: Walter Everett, Making Sense of Rock's Tonal Systems
While the Introduction, for instance, does actually sound the triads, B-flat minor - A - C-sharp, the string lines allow this to be heard as a simple C-sharp major chord whose third and fifth are ornamented by a normally resolving chromatic augmented fourth, as shown in the two parts of the Introduction.
Both sequences--that in descending fifths and that in descending fourths--should be heard as chromatic functions, involving the use of notes from outside the scale, sharps in the applied-dominant case, and flats in the double-, triple, or quadri-plagal example.
Examples in the pure minor are far less common than major-mode songs, but they may be found in such unexpected places as Ozzy Osbourne's "Revelation (Mother Earth)." With few if any deviations from classical harmonic and contrapuntal norms, the tonal relationships basic to this music are certainly amenable to a standard Schenkerian treatment.

A to C is a minor third and A to C-sharp is a major third.
Thus it is difficult to impossible to suddenly jump from the key of C (no sharps or flats) to the key of E (four sharps) or even A (three sharps).
Thus A to B-flat is a minor (small) second and A to B natural is a major (large) second.

To get the second note with a minor chord, one moves 3 half steps up; the third note is derived by moving 4 half steps up from there.
Write a program that reads the input file of individual notes and either the word, “major,” or “minor,” and outputs the three-note combination for the appropriate major or minor chord based on each note.
Again, the bottom note is the chord name, and if the bottom note is a C, for example, the chord is called C minor.

What we do is, we take the sharps or flats of whatever key we are in and notate them at the beginning of the staff.
Sharps are added and notated on the staff in the following order: F-sharp, C-sharp, G-sharp, D-sharp, A-sharp, and E-sharp.
In the case of our Db-major key, at the head of each staff is placed a flat(b) sign on the B line, the E space, the A space, the D line and the G line.

 Chopin's Preludes in Opus 28
It seems to settle down for a while, then it mutates into B Minor, and then the harmonies get really out of whack, with naturals and sharps in the treble, and a discordant C double-sharp in the bass, even in the same two-note chord with a C natural.
A note in a chord with a C sharp and an A sharp is written F double sharp, but later it is written G natural.
It sounds unsettled and growly; then it settles down into the sad harmonies of A minor clashing against a clanging F natural in the treble, and it finally ends with a plaintive solo and a couple of concluding chords.
