Classical-era Form—Rondo Form

Lecture no. 22 from the course: How to Listen to and Understand Great Music, 3rd Edition

 Classical-era Form—Rondo Form

Taught by Professor Robert Greenberg | 48 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Music & Fine Art Courses

This lecture continues the examination of Classical instrumental musical form with a discussion of rondo form. We discuss the antecedents of rondo form—the French rondeau and the Baroque ritornello (or refrain) form. In a Classical rondo form movement, the rondo theme is the central musical element, not the departures from that theme. Movements by Beethoven and Haydn are demonstrated as examples.
