Allegro moderato; Scherzo — Allegro vivace ; Andante moderato —Allegro moderato
COMPLETED in 1926, this Sonata is in three movements. The first is in the usual form with two main subjects, the first a flowing tune, and the second a rather more rhythmic theme. The second movement, Scherzo, is in the unusual time of 15-8. The Trio, the traditional middle section, is in slower form, and after the return of the first part, there is a reflective Coda, the movement ending with the unexpected return of the first subject. The last movement, less strictly in conventional form than the others,
. begins with a slow expressive melody. A minor section of rather gloomy character follows, and after the first subject has returned, a recitative passage leads to a new section, rising to a big climax. Then the same recitative brings us to the final part of the movement, based on what has gone before.
The attentive listener will hear how the first subject of the first movement, as well as the theme from its transition section, are interwoven at intervals throughout the Sonata.
