The symphonies of Antonio Brioschi : aspects of sonata form

  • The article investigates tonal, thematic, and textural aspects of sonata form in the movement structures of twenty-six symphonies from the 1730s and early-1740s by the Italian composer Antonio Brioschi (active ca. 1725–ca. 1750). It discusses expository events as well as aspects of development and recapitulation of the musical material. In addition, the article provides an account of the major eighteenth-century manuscript source of the works—a French collection known as Fonds Blancheton—and considers some general stylistic characteristics of the music.
