Catalogue Number: 01K088
Description: The early (1963) sonata is a bold and instantly likable specimen of the genre, conventionally laid out in four movements, with a lively, discursive opening movement, a wistful andantino and more serious, recitative-like lento ad an energetic and forceful finale. The Fantasia develops a theme from Beethoven with a nod to minimalism, in one of the composer's most appealing and popular works. Ida Bieler (violin), Nina Tichman (piano).
