About this work

This neoclassical sonatina is a tribute to several compositions with the same title and proportions, composed mainly in the 20ᵗʰ century. The most obvious reference is, of course, Ravel’s sonatina, but I also had in mind less famous pieces by various Soviet and French composers.

The genesis of this piece was unusually rapid, being written between late November and early December of 2021.
