#237 Sonata Form Redux

Sonata form is one of the oldest composition structures in classical music but it’s being rediscovered, and in many cases re-purposed, by contemporary composers.

What is the lasting appeal? We’ll play music by four composers looking to the past for formal inspiration. This episode also features a tribute to David Maslanka who passed away shortly before the taping.

Hosted by Seth Boustead
Produced by Sarah Zwinklis
