I took a music appreciation class about 6 years ago, and one of the parts I really enjoyed was that our book outlined popular pieces and their forms (such as the sonata form in Mozarts 40). The book would highlight the exposition themes, if it repeats, how the development starts etc etc...I'm wondering, is there another book that has detailed analysis of various pieces and forms like that?
I have numerous theory books I study, but I think I need help in applying it (music forms). Listening and saying "ohh, that measure is apart of theme 1 too" or "that's the bridge," seems like it takes practice, and when you don't have a resource there to say "that's correct" it's kinda daunting.
For example, I'm looking at Mozarts Piano Sonata 1 (K. 279), and while the development seems like it's pretty easy to spot (2:23?), ...what's the exposition doing!?! Is that first 4 measures a "theme" ..or does the theme start at 8 seconds in, with the 16th notes with the left hand? I have the sheet music, and I'm looking at this youtube video of it:
It would be really great if someone starts a week music form analysis series .
