coda (It.). Tail. Orig. a section of a movt. added at the end to clinch matters rather than to develop the mus. further. However, in the syms. of Mozart, Haydn, and especially Beethoven, the coda came to have integral formal significance, becoming at times 2nd development section and sometimes containing new material. Later composers have increased and extended this tendency.
