Piano Sonata No.2 (Mechanical Mirrors) is a 4 movement work contracted into 2 movements with a short break between 1 and 2 only. The 1st section is followed by a number of transitional ideas culminating a series of glissandi which bring back the opening material. The 2nd section/2nd subject/2nd movement is a theme and variations, slow and contemplative at first then doubling in speed by a process of halving the note values then halving them again. The 4th section in march tempo concludes with a fortissimo climax recalling earlier ideas.
Duration: 16 min.
Contents note: 1. Allegro moderato ma con fuoco -- 2. Adagio -- 3. Turbulent -- 4. Tempo de marcia moderato.
