5.0 ZENA BELL (Pianoforte)
A LTHOUGH she is only in her eighteenth year,
A Miss Zena Bell has already made a name for herself. A native of Widnes, she studied in London, and at the age of fifteen won the coveted Trinity College Gold Medal, creating a record by getting the highest number of marks ever obtained in the British Isles for that examination.
COUNT WALDSTEIN, to whom Beethoven dedicated this Sonata, was an early and warm friend of the Composer.
The Sonata, written when the Composer was thirty-four, is a work of grandeur, but, in spite of the big scale on which it is laid out, it is actually in only two separate Movements.
The FIRST MOVEMENT is tumultuous music.
Chiefly it consists of rapid repeated chords, abrupt, curt little phrases, and surging waves of sound. With these is contrasted simple, tranquil melody.
