Sonata 3 for piano : capsules / Don Kay.

Library shelf no. 786.2183/KAY 4 [Available for loan]

Work Overview

The initial idea for this single movement work was to make a series of short, self contained ideas, somehow linked, but also breaking-out, as it were, analogous to pods of seeds bursting when ripe. As the piece grew, the numerous ideas juxtaposed and recurred, sometimes identically and sometimes developed or transformed in some way. The overall form also complied, I felt, with certain traditional principles, hence the title, Sonata, subtitled capsules.
