lyrics

Anthony Whittaker about his piano piece "Micro-Sonatina":

“This short piece for solo piano derives from motives found in the first movement of Beethoven’s Sonata for Horn and Piano Op.17. Inspiration for the work came from playing the accompaniment for the composer’s eldest daughter, a horn player, who had been studying the work.

The piece exploits recognisable traits of Whittaker’s established style such as quartal harmony and jazz influences, whilst also deliberately employing some traditional Classical devices at cadential points en route, paying homage to the early 19th Century.”
