Excerpt from Primer of Musical Forms: A Systematic View of the Typical Forms of Modern Music By Form in Music is meant the characteristic shape which a musical idea assumes through the operation of its individuality in Rhythm, Melody, and' Harmony. Form has reference to the length of a piece as a whole; to the extent and variety of its subdivisions; to its modulatory structure, its characteristic rhythms, etc. In short, as Lobe says, to all those peculiarities in which different pieces of music appear unlike each other.
