:? #endquote# Rondo is a form/formula/plan that composers use to compose pieces of music. Rondo consists of 3 sections: A, B, and C They compose themes for each section and repeat them in this order: A-B-A-C-A-B-A A perfect example (and a listening delight :) ) is the 3rd Movement of Beethoven's Piano Concerto No.5 in E-flat Major. But he also utilized characteristics of Sonata Allegro form towards the end (coda). The piece (being a piano showcase) also has a cadenza at the very end. Hope this helps! -J #endquote#
