The Sonata in the Baroque Era explores the first appearance of the term sonata as an instrumental title in the sixteenth century to the virtual end of the thorough-bass practice, around 1750.

Now available in paperback for the first time, William S. Newmans monumental History of the Sonata Idea is the indispensable standard work on the subject for the student, teacher, performer, and music lover. Each volume deals with the historical evolution of the form and the contributions of both major and minor figures of the period, and includes music examples, notes, and comprehensive bibliography.
