Quarter-Tone Dissertation

Example 3.15

Alois Hába, Suite für vier Posaunen, Mvt. III, Allegretto scherzando, melody, mm. 1-7

The melody that opens the third movement strongly outlines B-flat; the movement itself ends on a chord with a root of C-quarter-sharp, a secondary pitch which features prominently in this melodic excerpt.
