Half way through our Journey....

A Piano Sonata can range anywhere from six to fifty minutes and to go beyond that is really stretching the envelope. Why would anyone write out a sonata that comes in just under three hours? Andrew Violette as a répétiteur spent hours at the piano playing for modern dance companies and it was there he learned to concentrate and develop the muscles and calluses necessary to play for extended periods of time.

One the Piano this Sunday part two of Andrew Violette's 7th Piano Sonata, with the composer at the keyboard we cover movements 7 through 13. Colorfield 1, the 11th movement is not to be missed!

The Piano this Sunday afternoon at 5 on KPAC and KTXI
