Composer notes: "My first sonata for piano, best be described as neo-impressionist, was inspired by two of my favorite piano composers, Ravel and Debussy. The first movement, Prelude, is actually in a loose sonata form, with a cascading development section climaxing in an augmented 7th chord that defines the work as a whole. The second movement, Song and Dance, consists of a lively jig bookended by slow reflection and transitioning straight into Movement 3, a toccata-like ride full of forward momentum that threatens to derail with occasional atonal interruptions. The final movement returns to the style of the first, this time emphasizing the Lydian mode, giving a sense of hesitance, as though the piece itself is reluctant to end.".
