This was my second complete piano sonata. (my forth if
you count two student pieces.) In it I attempted to
recreate traditional Sonata Allegro form by, amongst
other things, strengthening the weight of the second
half of the form. (Thus, for example, the first true
modulation to the dominant only comes in the
recapitulation. There were many other changes).
This was the culmination of a lot of work that was
started after reading Charles Rosen's "The Classical
Style" many times.
Others have told me they thought I was successful in
what I set about to do, which was to revitalize the
form for today's era.
I hope you enjoy.
Warning. The piano part is quite difficult and taxing.
This is not an easy piece.
