Topic: Sonata rondo form


  
  Rondo at AllExperts
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.
Although now called rondo form, the form started off in the baroque period as the ritornello form, coming from the latin word ritornare meaning "to return", indicating the return to the original theme or motif ("A").
A common expansion of rondo form is to combine it with sonata form, to create the sonata rondo form.

Thus, you can explain the movement as a sonata rondo with the form described as ABACADABA, in which AB is the exposition of a sonata form, ACAD is the development section, and AB is the recapitulation, followed by a varied return of the A theme and then a coda.

This form, although it sometimes attained fairly considerable dimensions in the 18th cent., is unsuitable for very long pieces, since the variety offered to the listener is almost entirely confined to details of treatment and the element of key, the thematic material employed throughout being the same.
A tendency towards the evolution of simple binary form into compound binary form may be observed in some of Bach's movts., but its first real exploitation is connected with the name and fame of his son, C. Bach, and the further exploitation and elaboration with the names of Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, and their contemporaries.
