Regarding his Sonata for Piano: Lasker, Mark Lackey writes: "In composing a large new work for solo piano I wanted to write something original, something that felt honestly my own, that would still be appealing to pianists who love the great Romantic tradition. In particular, I found myself reflecting on Chopin and Liszt. Their works still stand as models, in a way, not only for having forged a pianistic style that is technically and sonically idiomatic, but for constructing beautifully balanced forms.
"I sought to express a similar formal balance, and a certain measure of technical virtuosity, with my own melodic sense and harmonic palette, my own underlying tonal logic, and with a beat that is at times obsessive, or irregular, or exuberant.
"The unusual subtitle 'Lasker' refers to the Lasker Summer Music Festival in rural North Carolina."
