A concluding section of a movement of music, added to enhance the movement's sense of closure. Codas are not a standard part of the form, but are added as composers see fit, especially to the first or last movements of symphonies.
(Ital. for tail.) : Closing section of a movement , coming after whatever materials are required to conclude the form (the recapitulation in a sonata form, for example). A coda can consist of few summary chords or many minutes' worth of reopening old arguments: usually it is something in between.
(COE-dah) From the Italian meaning â€œtailâ€. Originally a section of a movement added at the end as the last musical thought in the composition. However, in the symphonies of Mozart, Haydn and especially Beethoven, the coda came to have integral formal significance, becoming at times a second development section.
literally, in Italian, tail. A coda is most common in Classical and Romantic period music after the composer has finished with the expected form of the music. A codaâ€™s function is generally to provide a strong conclusion to the work, giving the piece a grander sense of finality. It can, however, introduce new musical material, as we sometimes see in Beethovenâ€™s works, or in the 2nd movement of Brahmsâ€™s Ein deutsches Requiem.
(1) A portion of a tune which seems like a tail, or extra measures, added to the last A section. It is repeated for every chorus, however. (2) An ending for a tune, used only once after the final chorus. There is often confusion in written charts as to whether a coda is 'every time' or 'out-chorus only'. Some charts, to save space, are written so that the tune appears to have a coda, but it's really just a normal part of the tune.
(COE-dah) The last musical thoughts in a composition; in strict formal terms, a piece might contain exposition (which sets forth the principal themes of the work), development (which uses that material in new and varied fashions), recapitulation (where the principal material is restated almost verbatim), cadenza (for a last-minute vocal improvisation, sometimes based on the early materials in the work), and coda (where one last little idea is put forward by the composer).
The Coda is a series of emphatic cadences that create a sense of finality in the movement. In Beethoven's Ninth, Coda's also act as "Second Developments" whose lengths sometimes rival or even exceed the other sections.
Coda is an album by English rock band Led Zeppelin, released in 1982. This album of out-takes from various sessions during Led Zeppelin's twelve-year career was released two years after the group had officially disbanded, following the death of drummer John Bonham. The word Coda, meaning the final passage of a musical structure, was therefore chosen as a suitable title.
Coda (Italian for "tail"; from the Latin cauda, see below), in music, is a passage which brings a movement or a separate piece to a conclusion through prolongation. This developed from the simple chords of a cadence into an elaborate and independent form. In a series of variations on a theme or in a composition with a fixed order of subjects, the coda is a passage sufficiently contrasted with the conclusions of the separate variations or subjects, added to form a complete conclusion to the whole.
Coda is a Rock en EspaÃ±ol band from Mexico, formed in 1989. The band had a lot of success in the early 90s, releasing four albums in the meantime. In the late 90s, the band suffered several line-up remaining together through them.
