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.
