Taught by Professor Robert Greenberg | 43 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Music & Fine Art Courses
In Lectures 23 and 24 we examine sonata-allegro form, but first, we observe the life and personality of the extraordinary Wolfgang Mozart. We discuss the many meanings and uses of the word "sonata." The fourth movement of Mozart's Symphony in G Minor, K. 550, is analyzed and discussed in depth as an example.
