About this title


"The Sonata in the Classic Era is one of the great achievements of modern musicology. . . .I cannot recall any book in recent years that can equal it for its erudition, its strictly scientific method, and its amazing completeness. It will stand for many years to come as the unsurpassed text on its subject at all universities of the old and the new world." —Denes Bartha, University of Pittsburgh

"A major scholarly structure of which not only [William S. Newman] but all of American musicology can be proud of. . . . It will be permanently indispensable to teachers, performers, libraries, and students. It is unique and epochmaking." —Jan LaRue, Musical Quarterly

"Newman is perhaps uniquely equipped, if not positively fated, to produce a thorough history of the sonata." —Eugene Helm, Notes

"The thoroughness with which Newman has approached his research problem reveals a degree of dedication which has made all of us the grateful benefactors of a definitive volume filled with interesting and valuable information, bibliographical, statistical. historical, and descriptive." —Alice Mitchell, Piano Quarterly
