Þ The Classical Style: Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven Ú Download by ☆ Charles Rosen This was an absolutely fantastic read Rosen s depth of knowledge and enthusiasm for his subject s truly engaged this reader as he deftly put into words some of the magical and mysterious elements of the great music of Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven.
Rosen s material covered very few biographical details He focuses entirely on the inherent value each piece of music had While it was impossible to cover the pieces of these masters comprehensively, his observations did provide an in depth look at how they fit into the classical scheme Rosen perfectly captured the classical paradigm that all three masters worked with and how they each managed to make it their own He also corrects the historical idea that there were classical rules that each composer broke Each work provides its own expectations, disappoints and finally fulfills them.

A classic about the classical style in classical music Nice prose, combines technical analysis with musical insight well Already tempted to reread it This book was brilliant I highly recommend it to all musicians Charles Rosen is an amazing musicologist Not only does he have a lot of insight into music, but he is able to express himself with a great deal of intelligence and clarity His understanding of the classical style is inedible From this book I have gained a better understanding not only of Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven, but also of music in general I now know why these three composers are considered to be among the greatest In addition, my whole understanding of sonata form is much deeper and complete than ever before In fact, my sense of musical structure has been greatly enriched Reading this book is pretty much the equivalent of a really good advanced college music course, without being Truly mind expanding A book I have gone back to again and again partly because I didn t fully understand it the first time that I read it Rosen makes academic musicology accessible to those who are curious but untutored, however you do have to put the book down sometimes to let you brain have a rest On occasions, as when writing about the pastoral style in Haydn s symphonies, he can become quite poetic I wish he would write about what the music might be expressing a little often rather than just tonic dominant technicalities, but still a magisterial opus.
