Understanding how composers construct music phrases helps us when memorizing music. Playing pieces by heart helps us to release our artistry. When performers are not restricted by having to constantly read notes while performing, they can focus on expression in a completely different way. But first comes first, we need to make use of the best academic resources in order to organize the music in our minds. William Caplin’s “Music Forms” is maybe the best source of information.

WKMT and Juan Rezzuto have released this “Concept Guide” -summary- about Compound Themes. Compound themes are commonly found in the Classical music literature. Caplin explores and explains the particularities of the Compound Sentence and Compound Period. The compound basic idea (c.b.i.) can be seen operating in its full expression within the frame of the compound themes.

 

We specially recommend this article to adult piano students.
