Abstract:
Analysis of the wind concerto finales reveals characteristics of several different concerto forms. Mozart incorporated ideas from the French Rondeau, the Baroque Concerto Grosso, and the Classical Sonata. His early concertos seem to favor earlier forms and ideas, and his final concerto exemplifies a more advanced Classical form. This research has revealed style relationships between forms of the Baroque compositions and Mozart's use of Rondo form in the finales of his wind concertos. This places historically Mozart's wind concerto Rondos between the Baroque Concerto grosso and the fully developed Rondo of Beethoven and Haydn.
