Sonatine in E minor, Op 52 No 1
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The sonatina in E minor, Op 52 No 1, is the first of a set of two composed in 1880. It is quite formal in style, following obvious models from the Classical period, with a ‘Tempo di Menuetto’ as the middle movement. Both sonatinas were probably composed primarily as instructional pieces intended for students of intermediate ability, and in such a capacity, would be a welcome addition today, especially in view of their melodic interest.
