9780521027410: Mozart's Piano Sonatas: Contexts, Sources, Style

Mozart's piano sonatas form a richly diverse and significant part of his instrumental output and span much of his mature composing career, thereby representing a microcosm of the composer's changing style. Part I examines the contexts in which the sonatas were composed and performed, and reviews likely sources of influence. Part II concentrates on the genesis of the sonatas and the sources, which reveals important information about Mozart's compositional process. In Part III the musical style is studied from the standpoint of rhetoric--a discipline featured in numerous contemporary aesthetic and theoretical textbooks on music.

From the Back Cover:

Mozart's piano sonatas form a richly diverse and significant part of his instrumental output, and span much of his mature composing career, thereby representing a microcosm of the composer's changing style. Part I examines the contexts in which the sonatas were composed and in which they were performed, and reviews likely sources of influence. Part II concentrates on the genesis of the sonatas and the surviving autographs, which reveal important information about Mozart's compositional process. In Part III the music is studied from the standpoint of rhetoric - a discipline featured in numerous contemporary aesthetic and theoretical textbooks on music - and proceeds through an investigation of the nature of the musical ideas (the inventio), followed by a discussion of formal design (the dispositio) and finally a consideration of the elocutio (style, or expression), which attempts a detailed rhetorical analysis of several extracts - ranging from the construction of themes to whole movements. The resulting picture affords a cross-section of Mozart's compositional strategies.

Review:

"Performers and scholars who have spent years in the companionship of these sonatas will find Irving's study a useful entry point into their sources and recent critical literature." Michelle Fillion, Notes
