CLASSICAL OPUS no.81

Miklos Rozsa: “Piano Sonata in A Minor”

ミクロス・ローザ – 「ピアノ・ソナタ・イン・Aマイナー」

 

TIME COMMITMENT: 6 minutes

This monochromatic and elegant sonata appears alternatively contemplative and cosmopolitan.  More directly lyrical than the other Hungarian greats of the past century, Rozsa is too often derided for his Hollywood scores.  He may, indeed, be bathing us in traditionalist tonality, but his romantic flare-ups are bold, honest and somewhat irreverent.

A REFLECTION

I think it rains

That tongues may loosen from the parch

Uncleave roof-tops of

the mouth, hang

Heavy with knowledge
