Piano Sonata No. 4 (solo piano)
by Carl Vine (2019)
This work comprises three movements performed without a break. The first, Aphorisms, is a string of concise, linked but contrasting musical ideas which don't need to be part of a larger argument, coexisting in common isolation. The second, Reflection, is generally softer and slower with meditative moments perturbed by darker material. The final movement, Fury, portrays relentless and unfocussed anger that, even when catching its breath, wastes little time before reverting to unbending belligerence.
