"Allegro Moro" is the first movement of my Piano Sonata
No.3 "Mondana"; also it may be performed as a
standalone concert piece, and I encourage pianists to
play it in that way. The title refers to the
Spanish-Arab influence on this piece. But there's
more... much more. It's a blend of jazz harmonies,
latin rhythms, bluesy motives, free counterpoint,
virtuosity, evocations of Bach and Chopin, and of
course the melodies with said Spanish-Arab flavour, all
within an emotionally charged sonata-form of tremendous
intensity. An explosive cocktail which is only possible
because of the freedom of 21st century music. A
powerful piece from beginning to end. The sheet music
is highly detailed, with complete fingering and pedal
marking. The tempo indication is 'Feroce con violenza'
(Fierce with violence).
