Over the last several months as I have learned this Sonata, I have developed a great appreciation for it. To my mind, there is not a weak section in the entire piece; and for those looking for “red blooded organ music,” look no further.
The last two movements produce a great dynamic range (be warned).
The page long fourth movement, Recitativo, includes snippets of the main theme of the three previous movements. Then the fifth movement, beginning with a Choral, is joined by a Fugue, declamatory restatement of the Choral, cadenzas, trills, the Tuba, and then the 32’ Bombarde, bringing the work to a rip roaring conclusion. I hope you enjoy it.
