ArtistsGrace Francis (piano)
Brahms’s Third Piano Sonata Opus 5 is a remarkably original work – already, in its five movements, seeking to burst the bounds of the customary four-movement structure, which the first two Sonatas had essayed. Indeed, the Third Sonata is Brahms’s largest work for solo piano and already exhibits a profound unification of the emergent Romantic movement within classical forms – an extraordinary achievement for the young composer.
Liszt’s Sonata is arguably his masterpiece for the piano – a work of such newness of utterance, so original, such a creative achievement as this work represents must have crystallised those contemporaneous divergent schools of thought which was to lead to a virtual war of words between what one might call the traditionalists and those who epitomised the ‘new music’.
