1. Minuet
2. Elegy
3. Toccata

Built almost entirely on a three-note motive, Sonata is dark, emotional and expressive. After the understated first movement, Minuet, the second movement Elegy is also initially restrained, finally breaking free and opening into a dramatic climax that spans the entire range of the instrument. The wild Toccata closes the piece with a rush of notes.
