About Sonata

Celebratory mood

Cast in four contrasting movements, the first is highly festive and rhythmic with much inter-play between trumpet and organ. The second, a sleek scherzo, features fanfare-like trumpet calls over a constantly-changing luxuriant bed of pulsating harmonies. The third is a 'vocalise' for trumpet. The final movement is based on a recurring 'ground bass' or 'passacaglia'. The mood is celebratory and the festivities of the first movement brings the Sonata to an energetic and jubilant end.
