The Type 5 Sonata
Mozart's Concertos (Solo and Larger Expositions: Solo 1 + Ritornello 2)
In a Type 5 sonata the initial solo entry is a dramatically charged moment: the orchestra hands over the beginning of the task to the soloist, who will be spotlighted in most of what follows; and the soloist is expected to respond to what the Ritornello 1 has already made concrete. There are two options that a soloist can use, and a good example of the first option is in Mozart's concertos' first-level-default procedure, wherein the Ritornello 1 comes to a full close with a final caesura and the soloist enters by sounding the opening of the R1:\P theme in the tonic. In this kind of concept the soloist announces themself by accepting the initial idea of the Ritornello 1. The other option of the soloist is to enter with new material, preceding the onset of R1:\P with links, bridges, and prefaces.
