[Joe Monzo]

In 'common-practice' harmony, modulation refers to a change of key.

A modulation is distinguished from a tonicization in that the latter gives a more temporary feeling, while a modulation provides a clearly established arrival into the new key, usually for a somewhat extended period of time.

Modulation is ordinarily used in 'classical' music to delineate various different sections of a particular form, especially sonata form.
