Author: by William E. Caplin
Published at: Oxford University Press, U.S.A.; Revised edition (December 28, 2000)
ISBN: 978-0195143997

View on Amazon

Building on ideas first advanced by Arnold Schoenberg and later developed by Erwin Ratz, this book introduces a new theory of form for instrumental music in the classical style. The theory provides a broad set of principles and a comprehensive methodology for the analysis of classical form, from individual ideas, phrases, and themes to the large-scale organization of complete movements.

It emphasizes the notion of formal function, that is, the specific role a given formal unit plays in the structural organization of a classical work.

11. Beethoven's Piano Sonatas: A Short Companion

Author: by Charles Rosen
Published at: Yale University Press (July 28, 2020)
ISBN: 978-0300255119

View on Amazon

Beethoven’s piano sonatas form one of the most important collections of works in the whole history of music. Spanning several decades of his life as a composer, the sonatas soon came to be seen as the first body of substantial serious works for piano suited to performance in large concert halls seating hundreds of people.

In this comprehensive and authoritative guide, Charles Rosen places the works in context and provides an understanding of the formal principles involved in interpreting and performing this unique repertoire, covering such aspects as sonata form, phrasing, and tempo, as well as the use of pedal and trills.

In the second part of his book, he looks at the sonatas individually, from the earliest works of the 1790s through the sonatas of Beethoven’s youthful popularity of the early 1800s, the subsequent years of mastery, the years of stress (18121817), and the last three sonatas of the 1820s.

Composed as much for private music-making as public recital, Beethoven’s sonatas have long formed a bridge between the worlds of the salon and the concert hall. For today’s audience, Rosen has written a guide that brings out the gravity, passion, and humor of these works and will enrich the appreciation of a wide range of readers, whether listeners, amateur musicians, or professional pianists.

It was in his monumental 12 “London” symphonies, composed between 1791 and 1795, that Haydn shaped the early form of the symphony and set the standard for later composers. According to the New Grove’s Dictionary of Music and Musicians, the appeal of these works stems from their stature as “grand” symphonies, embodying a “broader presentation of musical ideas” and “themes and motifs of a basic simplicity and immediate appeal.”The present volume contains the last six symphonies in the series, including the lively “Military” Symphony (No.

100), the delightful “Clock” Symphony (No. 101), and the world-famous “London” Symphony (No.104). Scores included in this volume are Symphony No. 99 in E-flat Major; Symphony No. 100 in G Major (“Military”); Symphony No. 101 in D Major (“The Clock”); Symphony No. 102 in B-flat Major; Symphony No.

103 in E-flat Major (“Dumroll”); and Symphony No. 104 in D Major (“London”). The attractive qualities of these works have made them perennial favorites with musicians and concertgoers for over two hundred years. Now music lovers can study and enjoy the elegant structure and polished orchestration of these enduring masterpieces in this authoritative full-score edition.
