Free variations on an imaginary theme
The Sonatine III draws on one of Bach's Chorales: ''Verleih' uns Frieden gnädiglich'' (Mercifully grant us peace). By freely using, integrating, fragmenting and constantly developing thematic references to this Chorale in a rich variety of ways the work exposes an extract of the original Chorale at the end, and in the Chorale's tonic key of G major. In a way the Sonatine can be considered as a set of free variations on an imaginary theme.
