These three composers created works that are a hybrid of other forms of music. Join Al Carmen Guastafeste, educator, pianist, and entertainer for an in-depth look at these classical piano composers and learn and experience through live performances, the sonata, rondo, sonatina and the themes and variations of each composer.
