Piano Sonata / Elizabeth Younan.

Work Overview

This work is in three movements. Each movement explores a small musical motif which wholly permeates the work. There is no underlying story or explicit program; however, the musical structure and trajectory could certainly imply a journey from darkness and anxiety to light and joy.

Movements are to be played with little breaks in between.
