The principle and importance of classical Sonata Form is aided with keyboard examples on an eighteenth-century traveling square piano. We move to Vienna for a discussion of opera and the reforms of Gluck, before looking ahead to the Romantic period through the music of Schubert and Weber. Hosted by Alan Hacker, lecturer of Music at the University of York. The recordings are performed by Peter Wilson, Associate Director of London's Lyric Theatre Hammersmith.
