enharmonic intervals

views updated

enharmonic intervals. Those intervals which differ from each other in name but not in any other way (so far as modern kbd. instr. are concerned). For example: C to G♯ (augmented 5th) and C to A♭ (minor 6th). Hence enharmonic change, the change of a note in a part, e.g. from D♯ to E♭.
