Sonata No. 12, in F Major (K 332)
Allegro ; Adagio ; Allegro assai
THE Twelfth Sonata in F is a favourite work at the music lesson, and many pianists who rise to distinction retain their affection for it.
The FIRST of its three Movements opens with a flowing melody that might have been written for a soprano to sing, and this vocal quality appears in all its tunes.
It is still more evident in the SLOW MOVEMENT which follows (although the imaginary soprano in this case would have to be an adept with her high notes).
The THIRD MOVEMENT is more a matter for fingers to deal with. It swings and rushes and jumps along, musically speaking, with a pretty exhilaration from beginning to end.

THE ÆOLIAN PLAYERS: JOSEPH SLATER (Flute),
ANTONIO BROSA (Violin), REBECCA CLARKE (Viola) and GORDON BRYAN (Pianoforte) MOZART wrote over forty Violin Sonatas, most of them marked by an extreme simplicity of texture and a daintiness .that has been lost in later works of the same kind. Two of the forty nro in the key of E Minor, and each of those consists of two sections only. MAX REGER (1873-1916) is one of the comparatively few modem Composers who have kept largely to classical models. His music has power and is closely woven; indeed, the thickness of texture and the richness of harmony amount sometimes to stodginess. Roger's works total nearly a hundred and fifty-a remarkable output for a man little over forty. Piano Solo, ' Hymn to the Sun' Rimaky-Korsakov (New Concert Transcription by Gordon Bryan)
