Analyzing Classical Form

An Approach for the Classroom

William E. Caplin

  • A modern theory of musical form, one that has already proven itself as highly influential within the music-theoretical communities of North America and abroad
  • A highly systematic and comprehensive approach that leads the students from a mastery of simple formal structures through to the complexities of complete full-movement forms
  • Includes four hundred musical examples, whose audio content can be streamed online from the book's companion website
