This Piano Sonata – George Benjamin’s first published work – was written between 1977-78 whilst he was studying in Paris with Olivier Messiaen and Yvonne Loriod. Written in three contrasting movements, the work develops one theme throughout a dizzying 22–minute span, exploiting the instrument’s contrasting registers, its resonance and its precision and range of attack, with spectacular panache.
