The most interesting aspect of this movements is that Haydn intentionally returned to the theme of the Sonata in C-sharp Minor, Hob. XVI: 36. However, the new movement includes two independent episodes, one in the tonic and the other in its relative minor. The Adagio movement is rich in ornamentation.
Listenlearnanddo’s also wrote on his blog, “Bach was particularly good at writing a special case of imitative counterpoint: the fugue” (Listenlearnanddo). This shows that Bach really was proficient at composing fugues. Bach had hundreds of pieces in the form of a fugue. Some of the most famous are Toccata and Fugue in D minor, Fugue in G minor, Well Tempered Clavier, and The Art of Fugue. What shows his mastery is the how musically all his fugues are.
The piece begins with a solo and consists of much more choral and instrumental material. In the whole piece, Mozart relies on the orchestra to provide life to the text and mostly uses the strings and woodwinds to present this piece, while relying on the percussions and the timpani to provide effect for forceful motions. Overall, influence can be noticed from artists such as Bach and Handel. This piece, even though left unfinished made a mark in history as one of the most beautiful pieces ever written during the Baroque/Classical era.
Furthermore, the rhythm expands from monody (solo accompanied by instrumental), to bizarre rhythm by the presence of accents which was accompanied by the bass part.

Mozart also added to the symphony by contrasting memorable lyric themes in full sounding orchestral settings. “The elements in the formation of the early classical style are in short, periodic, articulated phrase. Articulated, periodic phrasing brought about two fundamental alterations in the nature of the eighteenth-century music: one was a heightened, sensitivity to symmetry, and the second was a rhythmic texture of great variety, with the different rhythms not contrasted or super-imposed, but passing logically and easily into each other” (Rosen 58). The classical characteristics didn’t appear one by one, but at different times during this important period in history. The classical era, with the progress of the classical music, at times was, irregular.
He had unprecedently composed sonatas for the cello which in combination with the piano opened the era of the Classic-Romantic cello sonata. In addition, his sonatas for violin and piano became the cornerstone of the sonata duo repertory. His experimentation with additions to the standard forms likewise made it apparent that he had reached the limits of the high-Classic style. Having displayed the extended range of his piano writing he was also begining to forge a new voice for the violin. In 1800, Beethoven was additionally combining the sonata form with a full orchestra in his First Symphony, op.
Mozart also added to the symphony by contrasting memorable lyric themes in very full sounding orchestral settings. To satisfy the middle-class amateur, classic composers supplied a ton of new chamber music for all imaginable combinations.

After 1765, the string quartet began to increasingly dominate the chamber music field. Unlike the concertos of the baroque period, the classic era mainly emphasized the solo concerto.
It is clear that Haydn had a strong influence on the composition of these works. In fact, Mozart once claimed: "I have learned from Haydn how to write quartets" (Berger, 286). Nonetheless, Mozart's unique personality and technical mastery are also apparent in these works. This paper will discuss the ways in which Mozart's "Haydn Quartets" are similar to the string quartets of Haydn. Haydn and Mozart represent the classical style in music, which was popular during the late eighteenth century.
Both of these men had the more reserved style of the Classical era before it even began, and they influenced three of the biggest names of this era: Beethoven, Haydn, and Mozart. Johann personally met Mozart in London, and greatly influenced his concertos for piano. Meanwhile, Haydn and Beethoven were both influenced by the sonatas of Carl Bach. All three of these musicians, at some point in their life, studied in the city of... ... middle of paper ... ...ions as the modern string quartet, or the standardized mode of the symphony instantly recognized today?

Of all of the musicians who ever lived Debussy (1862-1918) was known for his originality and adventurous style. His influences soon spread throughout the Western world. He, before long, became a "superstar" in Europe, North America, and Asiatemporarily breaking the public's fascination with the monolithic composers of the classical and romantic eras. Because of Debussy's moving compositions Impressionism soon spread into churches, schools, ballrooms, along with respected theatres and concert halls. Although Claude Debussy was an amazing orchestral composer, his works seemed to agree most with the piano.
