Microsonatina (2007)

This miniature was a commission by Jan Lehtola, who had asked a number of composers, including myself, to write only two bars of music for harpsichord. These bars were to be performed and discussed at a contemporary music seminar held at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki. There was no specification other than to write two bars. I have therefore used the upper and lower lines of the keyboard staff to form independent sections. Each section corresponds to a part of the sonata form (1st subject, 2nd subject, development and coda) which appears when the sections are arranged in the correct order.
