With the same authority, insight, and unique ability to bring music to life on the printed page that he brought to his Guide to Chamber Music, Melvin Berger gives us an indispensable guide to the sonata form. Comprehensive, analytical, and historical, including descriptions in nontechnical language of over two hundred of the best best-known sonatas, Guide to Sonatas is designed to help all music lovers−casual listeners, experienced concertgoers, performers, conductors, or teachers−deepen their understanding and enhance their enjoyment of the classical repertoire.
