This book provides a clear introduction to the musical forms and structures that have been used by composers from the 17th century onward. Dealing first with the terms phrase and cadence, it extends from simple binary and ternary forms to cover all the principal classical forms - sonata from, varied types of sonata form, rondo form, the concerto, air with variations, and so forth - with analyses of key works.

Launceston GB Intermediate Level Pianist
May be used as a companion to Book III, ABRSM Aural Training in Practice and is useful for those preparing for the Aural requirement of Grades 7 & 8 practical exams.
Whilst the academic rigour of this book is a welcome and essential element, it may prove a little challenging for some students.

Customer Rating This was recommended to me to help with the ABRSM G7 and 8 aural tests. I'm only a third of the way through but I'm finding it really interesting and helpful. It might be a tough read for children unless they are really keen - not so much because it is difficult to read but there is a lot to take in and it is perhaps best used in combination with listening to some (mainly piano) music.
