OK then, but we need to add Concord Bridge to the list. On April 19,1775 500 American militiamen engaged and defeated three companies of British regulars on the first day of the American Revolutionary War. :)

Quote:
Did Ive compose more than one Concord Sonata ? :P


I mean their are four movements. On youtube they are all broken up so I thought it was sonata(s)

Hawthorne

The Alcotts

Thoreau

@ Alexander

I'll have to look into the Masques and the Métopes, sounds interesting

Haha I was just pulling your leg about spelling. I know well the movements of this juggernaut Sonata, having tried in vain to play them.
Never even once made it through Emerson and Hawthorne :oops: The Alcotts is manageable, and so is, with a bit more determination, Thoreau.

Alexander,
I just listened to Op. 50 No.3 again. I was wondering if it recalls for you what it recalls for me: strains of a mix of Scriabin and Bartok?

Not quite. Although I do think that early Scriabin, early Szymanowski and late Chopin have a lot of common ground. Thanks for listening again.
