In The Classical Style Charles Rosen does a marvelous job characterizing the music epitomized by Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven. Of all the formal principles that have defined any period, the elements of classical style are perhaps most amenable to formal analysis.

In The Classical Style Charles Rosen does a marvelous job characterizing the music epitomized by Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven. The classical period is principally characterized by sonata form and tonality. We can agree with Sir Donald Tovey that we do violence to compositions by interpreting them as if sonata form constitutes a set of binding rules rather than a post-facto abstraction of what the masters of the classical period actually did.

This outstanding book treating the three most beloved composers of the Vienna School is basic to any study of Classical-era music.

In The Classical Style Charles Rosen does a marvelous job characterizing the music epitomized by Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven.

Of all the formal principles that have defined any period, the elements of classical style are perhaps most amenable to formal analysis. The classical period is principally characterized by sonata form and tonality. We can agree with Sir Donald Tovey that we do violence to compositions by interpreting them as if sonata form constitutes a set of binding rules rather than a post-facto abstraction of what the masters of the classical period actually did. Nonetheless, the principles of tonality may be expressed with an intellectual clarity which is more elusive when characterizing, say, a canon or polyphonic mass.

This is a reflection of the ideals of the classical period, whose audiences delighted in elegance and structural economy. Classical composers highlighted the structural contours defining works by emphasizing modulation and calling attention sectional boundaries with an intensified emphasis cadence. Elegance of structure was taken by the classical masters as an end in itself, and their harmonies glide on a framework they trace and enact. That is in itself a large part of the game of classical composition.

An understanding of the classical period is not only relatively easy to acquire, but of central importance to understanding nearly all subsequent composition. With the arguable exceptions of minimalism and some wings of the avant garde, nearly every important composition in the Occident since Haydn is either tonal or a reaction against tonality. Tonal harmony is the very foundation of our music theory to this day, and understanding its history and development can open up a deeper understanding of everything from Verdi to Schoenberg to Robert Johnson to Kylie Minogue.

Rosen makes all of this remarkably evident and comprehensible in dazzling prose that astonishes the reader with his insight on every page. I'm not a musicologist and browsed through a lot of the close passage analysis that comprises a big chunk of the book, but I still got my money's worth many times over.

An excellent look at the music of the classical era by focusing on the music of the three most influential composers of the period. A large focus is the combination of Mozart's symphonic and operatic styles: each can be found clearly in the other. An excellent resource for anyone studying music of the Classical period.

A history centering on sonata form written by an eminent scholar and pianist. I read much of as an adjunct to Jonathan Biss's MOOC from the Curtis Institute on Exploring Beethoven's Sonatas. It's well written, but challenging reading. Advanced knowledge of musical form would be helpful.

I own everything Charles Rosen has written. The original Classical Style was one of my first books. I have had the great good fortune to have worked with him as a conductor. He was a great man and this expanded version of his earlier masterpiece should be in your library

For me anyway. I find it really difficult to get through a few pages at a time because there is so much there to reflect on. Sometimes, he is a little redundant so it becomes easier to get the gist. More often, I find myself researching beyond his text and then returning to continue on. One real plus is how the author consistently includes contrasting opinions and often recognizes that, ultimately, he has learned from their insights.
I purchased this book as a reference for a class I plan to teach and will find this rich resource my bible. He has written several books on other periods of music history, and I'd look into them without hesitation.

I bought this as a gift for my husband. He is a musician and music conductor. He enjoyed it very much as he loves to compare the old masters and their works.
Cordabor
Gave it as a gift to a professional cellist. He told me he found it not only informative and useful, but also an enjoyable read.
Yes! It is a very good book. A bit technical at times.
