Lecture no. 4 from the course: The 23 Greatest Solo Piano Works

Mozart—Piano Sonata in C Minor, K. 457

Taught by Professor Robert Greenberg | 46 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Music & Fine Art Courses

In realizing the expressive scope of his keyboard compositions, Mozart single-handedly enlarged the scale, virtuosity, and importance of the piano sonata. Track Mozart’s rise as a keyboard prodigy and his transition from the harpsichord to writing music specifically conceived for the piano. Through the great C Minor Sonata, grasp his lyric, operatic use of the piano; rich melodic variety; dynamic contrasts; and expressive extremes that look toward the piano music of the 19th and 20th centuries.
