Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'This book packs a lot in and is highly recommended for the careful reader.' Music Teacher

'This volume seems particularly relevant to first-year undergraduates, who will surely fall upon its jargon-free vocabulary and crystal-clear layout with delight … as a history of works called sonatas, this keenly-focused study is essential reading.' The Musical Times

'5 stars: In this outstanding book Schmidt-Beste covers every conceivable aspect of sonata history.' Classical Music
