Overview

This substantial survey of the British piano sonata is a revision of the author's dissertation (with Peter Dickinson, we are not told where). The history of the genre, its reception, the psychology of its composers, and its national influences are analyzed for the period from the 19th century through 1945. The main text is illustrated with examples of the music, as well as substantial use of quotes from the composer and other contemporary sources. Several appendices follow, with transcriptions of interviews with several composers, a catalog of piano sonatas, and a discography.
