Abstract [en]

The golden ratio is occasionally referred to when describing issues of form in various arts. Among musicians, Mozart (1756–1791) is often considered a master of form. Introducing a regression model, we carry out a statistical analysis of possible golden-ratio forms in the musical works of Mozart. The model allows for statistical hypothesis testing and comparison with similar compositions by another master composer, Haydn (1732–1809), of the same epoch.
