Here are some of his very best pieces. The first piece is by far less contemporary than he normally is, but nevertheless genius. The last one is the most uplifting and the second is just good fun. ... re=related ... re=related

That etude is the most beautiful Sorabji piece I have yet heard. The etudes have the benefit of not being overlong and are maybe his best work. I thought at first the Habanera was feasible for an amateur, but before long Sorabji let rip again... I wish I'd find a performance of 'In the Hothouse' which is one of the fwe Sorabji pieces that look (at least on paper) manageable. I've been toying with it but have no idea how it sounds...
