Recently, Nathan Martin and Graham Hunt have questioned whether vocal sonatas have any formal connection with instrumental sonatas. In my paper, I adopt Martin and Hunt's philosophy by placing formal considerations on aria sonatas and I define the minor-key Prinner as a modification of the Galant gesture defined by Robert Gjerdingen. In minor-key vocal expositions, the transition will appear to be missing, with the gap between the primary theme and secondary theme filled in with a link. These links are frequently used to amend the harmonic non sequitur between the primary and secondary themes and are used to transition in a "hyper- efficient" manner. Recognizing these gestures as transitions allows us to connect better with Nathan Martin and Graham Hunt's previous work on links in order to create Prinner transitions.
