ID: m11607
Language: English (en)
Summary: The overall destiny of a piece of music--how the ending relates to the beginning--is a crucial dramatic and expressive feature. In a strong roundtrip, the music returns with strength and security to its origin. In a weak roundtrip, the return is incomplete, ambivalent or insecure. In a one-way progression, the music ends in a far different place than it began.
