Now available in paperback for the first time, William S. Newman’s monumental “History of the Sonata Idea” is the indispensable standard work on the subject for the student, teacher, performer, and music lover. Each volume deals with the historical evolution of the form and the contributions of both major and minor figures of the period, and includes music examples, notes, and comprehensive bibliography.
The Sonata in the Baroque Era explores the first appearance of the term “sonata” as an instrumental title in the sixteenth century to the virtual end of the thorough-bass practice, around 1750.
