My friend Phillip has brought this to the fore once again, and there
have been many updates of this sonata since this early post.
All five movements are now available on www.DavidSosnowski.com
All movements are now rendered with the fabulous Garritan Authorized
Steinway, of course!
All the best,
At my newcomer's stage of technical inexpertise, I must be out of my mind to attempt a piano piece with the GPO -- the piano being undoubtedly among the intrinsically most difficult instruments to record and reproduce well. Even in my prime, this piece was, in places, an absolute nightmare to play properly; and I am likewise challenged in interpeting it well in an electronic medium...
Let me know if I got this anywhere close to right, my friends!
(UPDATED 4/12/05, fourth movement added)
May I note that, with a composition of this kind in a sometimes brash modern idiom, I am a bit concerned that some of the sense of it will escape without the preparation of the prior movements; however, I expect the fine ears hear will manage.
