Wow, Richard ! This is an absolutely perfect addition to the sonate. The dreamy and tranquille character of this is a fantastic contrast to the other two movements. Congratulations on the completion of the sonate.
A perfect fit with its colleagues, Richard... and
one of your most interesting and intriguing
movements in its spectral dreaminess and
tranquility. There seem almost to be echoes
of Camille Saint-Saëns overlooking some of the
thinking in it... and perhaps a little influence
from Mr. Elgar.
Well, David, Saint-Saëns is possible, but Elgar would be extremely unlikely since I hardly know his music, whereas Saint-Saëns has long been one of my favorites. In my house, we refer to his music as "Camel Music".
