SFHRMTX Classical ( 1750-1825) Sound: The piano and the string quartet and an expansion of the orchestra. Form: New genres such as the symphony and string quartet. New emphasis on musical form: for example, sonata form, theme and variations, minuet and trio,rondo, and first-movement concerto form. o Sonata Form: his form got its name from being used as the first movement of most piano sonatas of the Classical period. Consisting of three sections— exposition, development, and recapitulation—it was also used for the first movements (and sometimes final movements) of almost all Classical symphonies and string quartets. o Exposition: The exposition of a sonata form presents the primary themes and keys of the movement. o Development: the development “develops” the primary themes of the movement. o Recapitulation: the recapitulation brings back the primary themes and home key of the movement. o Coda The coda, or “tail,” of the movement is a sub-section that re-emphasizes the home key and that generally provides a dramatic conclusion. o Theme and Variations: Theme and Variations form consists of the presentation of a theme and then the variations upon it. o Minuet and Trio: found in many Classical symphonies and string quartets stems from the stylized dances of the Baroque Period. and then followed by the MinuetA section: A B A for short.da capo, meaning to the head, at the end of the B
