Haydn Sym 103, double variation 2nd movt is an interesting case. The opening C minor theme introduces what may be regarded as a melodic Lydian fourth although tonally the latter stems from an applied dominant. For the ensuing C major theme, Haydn retains this Lydian fourth colouring, now harmonizing it with a common-tone diminished triad.

Hi everyone,
I'm looking for classical and romantic pieces that feature modal pitch collections, such as the lydian mode used in Beethoven op. 132 and Chopin op. 24 no. 2. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks very much!
