Figure 24: String Quartet No.1, bars 16-20, with pitch reduction at the bottom stave.

The pivotal degrees are designated by white noteheads, the fluctuating ones – by black noteheads. The alterations employed are given for each fluctuating degree. (Definition for Fluctuation is available in Chapter 1.2.)

NB: In this example I have respelled some accidentals back to their original instances (which were respelled in the score for players’ convenience at a later stage) to give the original harmonic structure, as initially composed.
