I'm searching for a German word for suspension, referring to music theory. Suspension as in suspended harmony.
A suspension (SUS) (sometimes referred to as a syncope) occurs when the harmony shifts from one chord to another, but one or more notes of the first chord (the "Preparation") are either temporarily held over into or are played again against the second chord (against which they are nonchord tones called the "Suspension") before resolving to a chord tone stepwise (the "Resolution").
I've tried several dictonaries, none of which seem to have a translation that is used to refer to that specific phenomenon. Is there a German word for that? If not, how could you describe it using as less words as possible (in German)?
