Description: Hiding behind the innocuous title Sonatina is a 40-minute piano transcription by the composer of a one-act ballet from 1927. Full of stylized dances and heavily influenced by Stravinsky and Falla, one can guess at the marvelous orchestral colors the young composer likely conjured (and hope that one day we will hear them in their original form!). Mirian Conti (piano).
