Piano Sonata in B (1944) played by Ruth Bridburg
Franz Reizenstein's Piano Sonata in B, one of his most important compositions, was written towards the end of the war. It is a powerful and dramatic three-movement work; an unusual feature is that, in the Rondo-Finale, two of the themes are treated fugally throughout. It makes considerable demands on the player's technique: the composer gave the first performance in London in 1945 and has since performed and broadcast it in several European countries. Tonight it it being broadcast for the first time to listeners in this country. D.C.
