Origin Of The Name





The fully developed Sonata-allegro form is the
design in which the classic overture and the first movement of the
symphony, sonata and concerto are usually framed. The student must be
careful not to confound this musical form with the complete sonata of
three or four movements. It is not to be called the sonata form, but
the sonata-allegro form. It is to one movement only, generally the
first one, which is (or was) very commonly an allegro tempo in the
sonata and symphony, that the present design refers; and its name,
sonata-allegro, is derived from that old historic species of the sonata
which consisted originally of but one movement, generally an allegro.
