This six-minute piece was written in 1976 for my undergraduate Senior Composition Recital. This is a new edition. The works three movement are:

I. Allegro capriccioso DOWNLOAD THE SOUNDFILE
II. Risoluto DOWNLOAD THE SOUNDFILE
III. Scherzo DOWNLOAD THE SOUNDFILE

The premiere performance was given its first performance in its first version at my undergraduate Seniro Recital. This is a thorough revision of the earlier piece, making use of some of the things I have learned in the intervening years. This SONATINA was and remains a tidy little piece in a freely atonal idiom focused on invention and motion that employs both thematic and athematic development and cross-referencing, metrical modulations, and instrumental idiomaticism. There is even some formal manipulation and reference between movements, later a typical element of my work not only within pieces but between compositions.
