Einojuhani Rautavaara - Piano Sonata No.2 "The Fire Sermon"
« on: February 01, 2021, 06:34:09 PM »
Hey guys! I'd love to share with you this recording my girlfriend made. I hope you like it as much as I do!

In this work, Rautavaara puts together utter craziness, brutality, defiance and a hint of mockery. As the composer describes it, this sonata portrays a "repeated and frustrating struggle", with a tension always building up which ultimately collapses.

-Mozart k.311.
-Bach P&F 17 BWV 862.
-Prokofiev Romeo & Juliet suite(complete).

I love Rautavaara; this is a great piece, and she plays it beautifully. She brings out the beautiful lyricism in the lyrical bits just as well as the crazy in the crazy bits.
