Sonata No. 4 in G minor for Piano, di Wilhelm Sctenhammar, edited and fingered Paolo Scafarella.
The Sonata in G minor (1890), rediscovered at the National Museum in Stockholm in 2008, is one of the Swedish composer Stenhammar’s most successful works.
The first movement, Allegro vivace e passionato, opens with a two-chord motto followed by a pattern of triplets. Although feverish and Dionysian, the writing – as is also the case in Stenhammar’s symphonism – is never overloaded.
