    Looking for First Phrases that Begin with a Dominant Chord

    Hello, all. I'm looking for examples of initial musical phrases that begin with a dominant chord. When I posed this question to myself, my thoughts turned immediately to Chopin's Op. 28, No. 7, and then to Schubert's Op. 50 (D. 779), No. 19, but I'm wondering what other gems might be lurking out there in our collective memories. Since I'm thinking of this in the context of introducing basic concepts to college freshmen, I'm primarily interested in the most straightforward examples with clear phrasing.

    I'd greatly appreciate any leads you might offer.
