The Sonate, Opus 17, for cello and piano was first published around 1878, when Le Beau was 28 years old. She adheres to classical formal structures; her romantic impulses are soaring melodies, key changes that are occasionally stark, and a rhythmically propelling piano part that borders on virtuosic. This edition includes a reprint of the original piano score and a newly engraved cello/viola part.
This edition of piano music by American women composers of the late 19th century presents seventeen works by fifteen composers, examples of music of a transitional period in the development of American music. The collection covers a spectrum of musical styles, from works by virtuoso pianists such as Amy Beach to works in the popular styles of the day.
A mesmerizing and compelling work, Romp has the effect of luring the listener in with the playfulness implied in its title only to take us on a brief intense and driving excursion. Melodic echoes of Milhaud and Copland play against Alexander’s subtle and surprising rhythms.
