|Sonata no. 1: A challenging nine-minute, single movement concert work for piano. With the emotive content of a hero's journey, the structure of this dramatic, intense work recalls classical sonata-allegro form. Inspired by late 19th and early 20th century tonality, the exposition and recapitulation are based on functional harmony, while the modulatory development explores earlier themes using the overtone scale.
Difficulty: concert or university level pianists, or the most advanced high school players.
