Possibly the most disputed feature which even keeps theorists in a dilemma, on Brahms’s second piano concerto, opus 83, is the formal structure of the last movement, Allegretto grazioso: “Sonata-rondo or sonata-allegro?” An interesting case at this point is the existence of a similar dilemma on sonata-rondo itself. Yet, there have been theorists formulating the form in a large range of diversity as well as some disregarding the existence of the form. Such a frame forms the launchpad of this study and an analysis suggesting the formal structure of Allegretto grazioso precisely is aimed.As a result of the analysis consisting of five main dimensions and detecting every single unit from phrase to section on each layer thoroughly, the following main results have been carried out:• The movement is not a sonata-allegro, but a sonata-rondo.
