Has anyone played the Arnold Sonatina? It is one of my favourite pieces, I was wondering if you like it as much as I do. I especially like the third movement, which is really fast... I really like fast music.

Yeah, I absolutely loved that piece when I was studying it. I liked the 3rd mvt the best, but I think the first is the hardest actually. Oh, actually the third is also really hard to perfect. I don`t particularly like the 2nd mvt that much, but its a good contrast.

Here is another recoding of the third movement, I don`t think its anywhere near as well played as the other site, but the tempo, I think is better. http://www.musicalwebdesigns.co.uk/real.htm

yeah i love this movement too. Thing is I`ve only played the first movement but I have heard the third one. The first one is great i love the sequencey bits and the runs. The third movement sounds pretty cool but really hard! Whats the second one like.

The second movement is slow, and flowing, to give contrast to the first and third movements. Its very relaxed. Its in compound time. The middle section of it is louder, with the clarinet coming in on the 3 quaver beat - a wierdish rhythm. The 2nd movement is supposed to be the easiest movement, but I play it the worst out of all 3 coz i don`t like practising slow pieces much. I`m better at fast pieces.

I played this piece a while back in a recital. Its great fun and should be played like you`re a crazy person. Its got all kinds of quirks (the 2nd movement`s strange tempo marking is a good example). The trick is to not play the 2nd movement too slow - if you do, the whole movement doesn`t really fit in with the other two which have this `mad as a march hare` kind of feel. I love the last movement - particularly in the unison shot chords with the piano. Hard to co-ordinate to make it REALLY effective though.

I also love this piece, I find that it is a brilliant opener for a recital and gets the audience really excited. The only problem is by the time you get to the third movement it is hard to muster up enough energy to give it the drive it needs - good one for stamina!

Yeah, loved the piece as well. I`m playing the first movement as an opening to a recital at the end of the month. Loved the fast semi quaver passages and contrasting dynamics - good fun to put with the piano anyway ! Hardest part to master is the passage before E - nightmare !! Need to write some programme notes for it fairly soon so if any one has any suggestions please help!
