Description:Sonata-allegro form, is a musical form typically used in the first movement of classical works. It is derived from the binary form of the Baroque era of music, developed further through the works of the Mannheim school, and gained prominence in the works of Joseph Haydn, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and Ludwig van Beethoven. The word sonata is also used to refer to a stand-alone instrumental work on a relatively large scale. A work in sonata form can be divided into three sections: the exposition,development, and recapitulation.
