Sonatina, BV257
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Between 1910 and 1921 Busoni wrote six Sonatinas totalling nearly fifty minutes. They show him composing first in his radical idiom and, from 1915 onwards, in the much more approachable style that, in 1920, he would call Junge Klassizität (‘Young Classicism’), by which he meant ‘the mastery, the sifting and the turning to account of all the gains of previous experiments and their inclusion in strong and beautiful forms’. The first Sonatina (1910) presents a theme followed by seven variations, with a virtuoso section featuring double notes using the whole-tone scale.
