    This is not the same Sonata as the 2-Piano one from the '50s but a compact 1918 work I had never encountered on records. While still showing some traits we recognize as Poulenc's, it is short on wistful melody, but seeks to shock with repetitive rhythms and dissonances...

    in the manner of Stravinsky or early Hindemith.
