Abstract

This work is a three-movement sonata conceived in the traditional classical forms of sonata-allegro, song, and rondo, but using a greatly broadened definition of tonality. While the movements are rooted in B, E, and B, respectively, the resources employed to establish, maintain, and develop these tonal centers include many other techniques in addition to traditional functional harmony.
