About 2nd Sonata
The second tempo also exposes a dialectic similar to that of the time before it with regard to the maleand female principles, this time immersed in the frenzy of the Presto. It is a tour de force with
fortissimi where a theme appears to guide the composition at a certain point and will be proposed in two different and opposite ways in an alternating and dialogic way. In the first version it leverages upwards as in the search for an answer. In the second, in its variation, it appears subdued and resigned. The piece will end by turning off in the lower region of the instrument before the chord in forte. We can rightly believe that this Sonata anticipates the evolution of its composer after a few years. A fascinating, involving and deservedly famous composition by Scriabin.
