About SoNotas

The title of this piece can be viewed from two perspectives. On the one hand, it is a sort of play on words on the term sonata, in that the formal structure of this piece follows the same line in the 3 movements (fast – slow – fast) characteristic of the sonata form.

On the other hand, SoNotas, in my interpretation, means that a musical piece is an expression of the human experience around the physical object called sound. In the Portuguese language, separating the word SoNotas leaves us with the expression «só notas», only notes, notes alone.

Let us not speak of technical questions and details and instead concentrate on the «sonic matter», in this case as produced by the tuba and the piano, which we know as music.
