Dance (Akhnaten Scene 3)
Knee Play No.4 (Einstein On The Beach)
Satyagraha - Conclusion, Act III
The Sonata consists of piano transcriptions from the trilogy of "portrait" operas of Philip Glass, Einstein on the Beach (1976), Satyagraha (1980), and Akhnaten (1983). The result is an unusual sense of time travel as the unmistakable rhythmic identity of Philip Glass is temporarily viewed through the looking glass of the 18th-century sonata cycle.
