Moonlight Trapped in the Sonata Form?

How can we explain the immense popularity of the sonata for over two hundred years? What makes it so satisfying, so complete?

Well it depends where in the music you are at.  Apart from the bassoon, I also heard french horn, oboe, bass fiddle, violin and flute. Then the entire orchestra joined in, including the tympani or kettle drum.

Hope that helped.


Cheers
