My background has been in writing \'pop\' (a broad term) music and I\'m now attempting to compose some \'classical\' pieces. I\'ve looked at the scores for several Beethoven Symphonies and Piano Sonatas but I haven\'t been able to relate it to anything like \"verse, chorus\" or \"AABA\".
Although many of the Beethoven pieces are in sonata form they are at the same time quite different in terms of form.
I\'m sure sonata form means more than fast movement, slow mvt, fast mvt. So can anybody help a \'pop guy\' understand the construction of classical music? Thanks.
