    Transformation Sonata - the whole thing

    Well, with the uploading of the middle movement, Transformation Sonata is now complete. This movement is a strong contrast to the other two, more energetic movements.


    Transformation Sonata II (Andante tranquilo}


    Previous:

    Transformation Sonata I (Toccata)

    Transformation Sonata III (Presto - Allegro)

    Done with GPO Steinway, naturally.

    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.
    Kind Regards

    This fits perfectly.

    The gentle mood and the simplicity of this movement enhances the other two, A great contrasting movement.

    Well done

    I peaked at the 1st and third movements and this is a great second movement.

    It goes in a very different direction but prepares you for the third movement.

    A very strong work.

    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.

    Much enjoyed!

    My best,

    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".
