sonata    : [sən'ɑtə]
Sonata \So*na"ta\, n. [It., fr. It. & L. sonare to sound. See
{Sound} a noise.] (Mus.)
An extended composition for one or two instruments,
consisting usually of three or four movements; as,
Beethoven's sonatas for the piano, for the violin and piano,
[1913 Webster]

Note: The same general structure prevails in symphonies,
instrumental trios, quartets, etc., and even in
classical concertos. The sonata form, distinctively,
characterizes the quick opening movement, which may
have a short, slow introduction; the second, or slow,
movement is either in the song or variation form; third
comes the playful minuet or the more modern scherzo;
then the quick finale in the rondo form. But both form
and order are sometimes exceptional.
[1913 Webster]
