Format: Paperback
I cannot believe that no-one has written about this book here before. Perhaps because it is a classic, it might be taken for granted. But I have found myself re-reading the section on Mozart while playing through a handful of the concertos, and relishing once again Rosen's vivid powers of communication. This is the sort of musical analysis that obviously arises from a deep love of, and a deep enjoyment of music, and contributes generously to it.
Rosen's own personality, immensely knowledgable, enthusiastic and intellectually rigorous make one long to feed him a first class dinner in return for the pleasure of his company over the years.
There is a warning: Rosen's books require some ability to be able to read music, and a general familiarity with the music. But 'The Classical Style' and 'Sonata Forms', despite their slightly academic titles, are some of the most companionable books known to me.

I have been reading this book for years, over and over. Like with all other books by Charles Rosen,you learn a lot about music with it. But not only about the music by Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven as the title would suggest, but about any music, becouse here you find a way of looking to music wich helps you to understand a lot of things.
Of course, many of Charles Rosen points of view have been discussed over the years. Sometimes the critics may have some reason. But in general, Rosen's insights are deeper and subtler than anything else you may find in the music literature.
I would recommend this book to anyone interested in music.
