Recapitulation (music)

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Reprise ( French reprise 'resumption' ) denotes in music in a more general sense the repetition of a formal part (see, for example, Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach , Sonatas for Clavier with changed reprises Wq  50 [1758–59]) and in a narrower sense the Resumption of the beginning ( English recapitulation ), u. a. in three-part forms (ABA) or in the sonata main clause form .

In the 18th century, the term was used for the repeat sign itself.
