Product details

The sonata is in three movements. Allegro begins with a dramatic piano broken chord while the cellist introduces the theme which is built on a strong rhythmical motive. The piano echoes this theme in octaves. This movement is antiphonal with both instruments alternating between introducing the thematic material and then supplying the answer.

The second movement marked Lento sounds like a plea for help created by repeated two note slurs over a semitone played firstly by the cello and then the piano.

The jolly and light-hearted third movement (Allegro) opens with a cheeky sequence played by the piano which, this time, is echoed by the cello. The character of this movement reflects Holland's cheery and welcoming manner.

The sonata is technically challenging for both instruments and is a good example of a work for a duo rather than some of Holland's other works which favour the instrument while the piano is given merely an accompaniment rather than an equal part to play.
