  Rondo - LoveToKnow 1911   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
RONDO, a musical form originally derived from the rondel in verse; as may be seen, long before the development of instrumental forms, in some of the chansons of Orlando di Lasso.
The sectional rondo was modernized on a gigantic scale by Brahms in the finale of his G minor Pianoforte Quartet, Op.
In fact, the true criterion of a rondo is, as with all real art-forms, a matter of style rather than of external shape.

 Rondo - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Rondo, and its French equivalent rondeau, is a word that has been used in music in a number of ways, most often in reference to a musical form, but also in reference to a character-type that is distinct from the form.
A common expansion of rondo form is to combine it with sonata form, to create the sonata rondo form.

 Ainge Relishes Landing Rondo in Draft | Celtics.com
Rondo thought there was a chance he'd be drafted by the Celtics, but he never really knew it would happen until it actually did.
While Rondo didn't have a fantastic season, Ainge's rankings didn't change by the time June rolled around, and after some wheeling and dealing, the Celtics got their man, acquiring his draft rights in a deal with the Phoenix Suns, who selected him at #21 for Boston.
But Rondo's calling card is his speed, and Ainge expects that it could make him a "special player" in the NBA thanks to the way the game has shifted to an emphasis on perimeter and pick-and-roll play.

Haydn began composing rondos in the early 1770s; examples are found in his symphonies, string quartets and piano trios.

 Rondo Hatton - Biography - Moviefone
A fixture in B-movies of varying quality from 1943 until his death early in 1946, Hatton was a victim of the glandular disorder Acromegalia.
Alas, by the time it was completed, Hatton's health was failing and it wasn't until eight months after his death that the movie opened in theaters; by then, a nervous Universal had sold the film to the Poverty Row outfit Producers Releasing Corporation rather than issue it directly.
Rondo Hatton was never more than a cult horror star in his own time, but during the 1960s and 1970s, with the booming interest in Universal's classic horror movies, he began attracting the interest of scholars and horror movie buffs.

 Rondo "The Creeper" Hatton
Zappa liked to identify himself (and his band) with ugly people, and Rondo Hatton was an ugly film actor of the 1930s and '40s, who suffered from a disease called acromegaly, and thus looked a bit odd.
Rondo may very well have been exposed to chemical warfare agents, but this would in all likelyhood not have given him the special type of brain tumor that causes acromegaly.
Rondo was not really the "ugliest man in movies" even in the 1930s - the movie FREAKS from 1932 sported an all-star cast of real-life side-show attractions, with various deformities and handicaps.
