So I'm revising Electric Counterpoint by Steve Reich for mocks and I need some help.

So some sources say that the tonality is E minor with modulations to C minor.

But some sources say that it is G major and Eb major!!

Help, which one is it?!

(imo it doesn't really sound minor, but I'd like to be certain!)

E minor and C minor - The tonality is ambiguous until the basses come in and affirm the key as E minor.

Trust me- E minor was the correct answer in a mark scheme.

It starts off in E minor, modulates to C minor in bar 74, returns to E minor in bar 82, modulates again to C minor in bar 90 and then finally returns to E minor at bar 98.

Trust me, I'm staring at the Edexcel textbook as I type this

Saw this thread in the latest discussions and was one of the first results to come up when I searched "music GCSE" so I thought I'd post it here...

I took my final IGCSEs in summer 2012 though my school chose to do GCSE music (idk why) so I made a summary table for all the set works which you can find here: http://getrevising.co.uk/resources/g...condensed_info
-you have to create a free account to download it though.

I got an A overall, but got 81/90 on compositions and 88/90 for performances. It was the listening paper that brought me down, unfortunately.

Don't hesitate to contact me if anyone's got any further questions
