Matthew Arnerich 

​Composer

​​  Sonata-Fantasie no. 2  ​​

Sonata-Fantasie no. 2, in D major

Dedicated to Rae Chouinard 


The second sonata in the Sonata-Fantasie Trilogy.

Composition started in 2011 and completed in 2013.


Where the first sonata is ruthless and uncompromising the second is introspective and graceful. An air of resignation and self reflection permeate the entire movement. 


A particular imagine was in mind during it's creation; a journey of solitude through the snowy mountains of the Sierra Nevada in winter.
