Piano Sonata in B flat major, Hob XVI:2


The crisp opening movement of Sonata No 2 in B flat major makes witty play with the skittish little triplet figure first heard in bar 2. The slow movement is a florid, often chromatic G minor Largo full of broken, sobbing phrases, the finale an elegantly proportioned minuet enclosing a haunting syncopated trio in B flat minor.

from notes by Richard Wigmore © 2012

Le pimpant mouvement d’ouverture de la nº 2 en si bémol majeur fait de l’esprit avec la frivole petite figure en triolet entendue d’abord à la mesure 2. Le mouvement lent est un Largo en sol mineur fleuri, souvent chromatique, tout en phrases arpégées et sanglotantes; le finale est un menuet élégamment proportionné, cernant un lancinant trio syncopé en si bémol mineur.

Français: Hypérion

Der forsche Kopfsatz von Sonate Nr. 2 in B-Dur spielt geistreich mit der lebhaften kleinen Triolenfigur, die erstmals in Takt 2 erklingt. Der langsame Satz ist ein reich verziertes und vielfach chromatisches Largo in g-Moll voll zerrissener und klagender Phrasen, das Finale bildet ein elegant proportioniertes Menuett mit einem synkopenreichen b-Moll-Trio als Mittelteil.
