Program Notes

Sonata Allegro was originally written for orchestra in 1949 as Williams' master's thesis at the Eastman School of Music. He transcribed the piece for band an later used much of the material dor A Southwestern Overture for orchestra. The wind transcription remained unpublished until 2012.

The form sonata allegro was popularized in the Classical period. It consisted of three main sections: exposition, development and recapitulation. Williams' Sonata Allegro can be dividied into two large sections, an exposition followed by a recapitulation with a coda. Within each larger section are three thematic areas. Rather than including a development section, each theme statement is followed by a development of that theme.
