"Deuxième Sonatine" (Second Sonatina) for piano Opus 10 (Henry Lemoine - Combre, publisher)

June 2022

Maurice Journeau composed four sonatinas for piano, his own instrument, probably because this way of writing seemed attractive to him. The "Deuxième Sonatine" (2nd Sonatina) Op. 10 was written in Biarritz on April 1925. The work, full of a brotherly tenderness, was dedicated by the composer to his younger sister. So it is a graceful, gentle piano piece endowed with a very lively atmosphere.

In three movements : "Allegretto piacevole" (3'00") - "Andante" (3'30") - "Scherzo" (5'00").
