With not so much as a single wasted note in this entire composition the twentieth sonata is an object lesson in the qualities of composition which characterised the very best of the High Classical period. Elegant, confident, expressive and profoundly musical, the grande sonata composed for his childhood mentor Bernhard Romberg and redolent with the influence of his other teacher Beethoven, still has the capacity to transport us into the sound world of an exciting musical age, an age that ushered in the Romantic era in no uncertain terms.
