    Default Chopin black keys

    Please could someone advise on bars 8 and 84 and 85 of this piece. Firstly is a cadence present of any type in bar 8? Secondly does the piece end on a perfect cadence. Thankyou.

    I found it. Yes bar 8 is the end of the consequent phrase (bars 5-8) that complete the opening period (bars 1-8). I would call it a half cadence since it ends on the V of vi and is preceded by ii. Yes, you could say it ends in a PAC (perfect authentic cadence) as there are a series of root position V and I chords alternating and then the I chord is drawn out with filigree until it ends on a tripled root.
