  Could adventurous music have a new home at ICA? - The Boston Globe
The theater's debut musical event took place Friday night: a double-bill under the title of "Classical Mashup." The first half was given over to the pianist Bruce Brubaker playing Haydn sonatas while composer Nico Muhly, on laptop and electronic keyboards, commented with sampled sound.
The stage is 2,500 square feet, large enough to accommodate, conceivably, a new music band or a chamber orchestra.
All of the music on Friday night was amplified so it was impossible to evaluate the space's natural acoustics.

 Baroque Period [M.Tevfik DORAK]
Composers began to write music specifically for a particular medium, such as the violin or the solo voice, rather than music with interchangeable or no idioms that might be either sung or played by almost any combination of voices and instruments, as had previously been the case.
In the late Baroque music, a rich interchange and interpenetration of idioms is observed, i.e., transfer of lute ornaments to keyboard or vocal techniques to violin.
Because the music was not quite tonal, the power to sustain a longer movement was lacking, and in consequence all forms were on a small scale.

 Sonata - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The sonata da chiesa, generally for one or more violins and bass, consisted normally of a slow introduction, a loosely fugued allegro, a cantabile slow movement, and a lively finale in some binary form suggesting affinity with the dance-tunes of the suite.
The sonata da camera had consisted almost entirely of idealized dance-tunes, but by the time of Bach and Handel such a composition drew apart from the sonata, and came to be called a suite, a partita, an ordre, or, when it had a prelude in the form of a French opera-overture, an overture.
The piano sonatas of Scriabin would begin from standard forms of the late Romantic period, but would progressively abandon the formal markers that had been taught, and would usually be composed as single-movement works; he is sometimes thought of as a composer on the boundary between Romantic and modern practice of the sonata.

 Sonata (music) Summary
The sonata da chiesa, generally for one or more violins and bass, consisted normally of a slow introduction, a loosely fugued allegro, a cantabile slow movement and a lively finale in some such binary form as suggests affinity with the dance-tunes of the suite.
The style is still traceable in the sonatas of the later classics, whenever a first movement is in a uniform rush of rapid motion, as in Mozart's violin sonata in F (Kochel's Catalogue, No. 377), and in several of Clementi's best works.
The role of the sonata as an extremely important form of extended musical argument would inspire composers such as Hindemith, Prokofiev, Shostakovich to compose in sonata form, and works in traditional sonata structure continue to be composed and performed.

 Beethoven and the Moonlight Sonata| Beethoven Sonata in C sharp minor op. 27 no. 2
The Moonlight Sonata was composed in the summer of 1801 in Hungary, on an estate belonging to the Brunswick family.
Consequently, the main musical theme of the first part becomes very elaborate in the second part, and the second motif of the main theme will be encountered in the first theme of part III.
The Moonlight Sonata was written in 1801 and today, more than ever, it remaines one of the most popular pieces of piano music in history.

A sonata is an instrumental composition performed by one or two solo instruments; including cello, piano or violin.

 Musical Forms - Sonata
A piece of music, almost invariably instrumental and usually in several movements, for a soloist or a small ensemble; or a structural principle, the sonata form.
In addition to those of Corelli, Handel and Bach, the 22 sonatas of Purcell are outstanding among the trio type (though the cello part is sometimes independent of the continuo).
The break with tradition is evident both in those sonatas by Bartók, Stravinsky, Poulenc and Hindemith which look back to a much earlier age and in the piano sonalas of Barraqué and Boulez, which have no links of form or genre with any previous Sonatas.

Some have suggested--with no truly supportive evidence--that Beethoven wrote the Moonlight Sonata as a "portrait" of the "ferne geliebte." Probably not--but here are two seperate and equally moving performances of his most famous composition for solo piano.

The Sonata for Trombone and Piano was a featured work at the 2001 International Trombone Association Festival in Nashville, TN where it was performed by Lawrence Borden (principal trombonist for the Nashville Symphony) and Polly Brecht (Assistant Professor of Piano at Middle Tennessee State University).
The Sonata is a large three-movement work cast in a more-or-less tonal style.
The overall character of the music might be described as 'neoclassical.' Nevertheless, there is a definite (but subtle) influence of jazz and rock styles.

 Artur Schnabel - Music Downloads - Online
Artur Schnabel was very reserved about his own music, hardly any of it being heard during his lifetime; he referred to himself as an "amateur composer" and to composing as a "sport" and due to the difficulty of most of his works, performances were relatively rare.
His Notturno of 1914, a setting of a Richard Dehmel poem for contralto and piano was not performed until 1929 at festivals at Weisbaden and Amsterdam, and like much of his work was irritating to the conservative music critics of his day.
The Sonata for Solo Violin remains one of Schnabel's most astonishing works.

Beethoven wrote the Moonlight Sonata (Sonata No. 14 Opus 27 No. 2) for the Countess Giulietta Guicciardi, one of several female piano students Beethoven was to fall in love with.
Unfortunately the beauty of the piece did not have the desired outcome (marriage), as Beethoven was to remain a bachelor all his life.
The title Moonlight Sonata only became popular after Beethoven's death, after the music critic and poet Ludwig Rellstab had likened the piece to the reflected moonlight on Lake Lucerne.

The Concord Sonata is one of my favorite works, and I think it is not only perhaps the greatest American work but I can't think of another 20th century work that matches the scale, complexity, and beauty of this work.
On the other hand Stravinsky once was asked to describe the perfect piece of music and his answer was Ives's "Decoration Day." He must have been studying the score because perfect performances of it haven't been common.
