I. Largo, II. Allegro vivo,
"The Sonata in Baroque Style is a piece of music which reflects the musical realities of our day. In it are the influences of several styles of musical thought representing the choices urged upon a contemporary performing musician by a culturally self-conscious society. It can be diffecult for a musician to decide what kind of music, old or new, "artsy" or "earthy", is right for him or her. This unique dilemma of our time was the idea motivating the creation of this piece. It is a serious attempt to wed styles and to break down the prejudices which have, to date, forced them apart." -from the Foreword by the composer, ca. 1978
