[Smt-talk] Seeking deceptively resolving applied dominants.

Doesn't the Schubert given below actually go first to a pure tonic, then
added flat seventh, and also to a pure IV, then through 5-6 exchange to
ii6/5. Thus:

V7 - (4/2) - I6 -V6/5/IV - IV -ii6/5 - V6/4-7/5/3 - I

Derived from:

V7 - (4/2) - I6-b5 - IV5-6 - V6/4-7/5/3 - I

I can certainly see why you would read it your way, but the difference may
be significant in this case (and it may point to some difficulties in
compiling statistical data through roman numeral analysis).

Thanks for the examples!
