Works for Organ
Sonata in D-flat Major, Allegro
Padre Antonio Soler (1729-1783) wrote over 120 keyboard sonatas as well as six organ concertos. These are a few of his most popular sonatas, arranged for organ. Intento is a magnificent fugue that builds to a thrilling climax after 250 measures of glorious counterpoint. Allegro Spiritoso is a witty character piece with lots of Spanish flavor. Sonata in D-flat Major, Allegro is a favorite piece with audiences because of its fanfare-like figures, arpeggiated flourishes, and a flurry of repeated notes.
