Abstract:

In "What is Sonata Form?", Leonard Bernstein analyzes the principles of form in music, pointing out that the sonata form is really an expansion of the basic three-part form found in popular tunes and in the dacapo aria. He discusses the basic key relationships of the sonata form, with musical illustrations. Includes excerpts from Symphony no. 41 "Jupiter" (Mozart), Piano Sonata in C Major (Mozart), Classical Symphony (Prokofieff), "And I Love Her" (Lennon & McCartney), and Carmen (Bizet). With Veronica Tyler soprano.

In "The Sound of an Orchestra", Bernstein illustrates the principle that the sound of an orchestra is not always the same, but must express the characteristic styles, textures, and colors of the music of different composers and nationalities, throughout all periods of music history. Includes excerpts from Symphony no. 88 (Haydn), Symphony no. 1 (Brahms), Iberia (Debussy), L'histoire du Soldat (Stravinsky), An American in Paris (Gershwin), and Rodeo (Copland).

In "What Is a Mode?", Bernstein defines a mode as a special kind of scale with the half tones and whole tones in different places than found in major or minor scales. He traces the use of modes from ancient times to contemporary popular music and includes musical examples which are performed, analyzed, and discussed. Includes Fêtes (Debussy), "Polonais" from Boris Godunov (Mussorgsky), and "Danz on" from Fancy Free (Bernstein).
