Debussy writes about this Sonata in a letter dated December 11, 1916:
“The sound of it is not bad, though it is not for me to speak to you of the music. I could do so, however, without embarrassment for it is the music of a Debussy whom I no longer know. It is frightfully mournful and I don’t know whether one should laugh or cry – perhaps both?”
This piece is so much fun to perform – especially with Travis and Elena. Every time I perform this piece it reveals new layers – my favorite kind of chamber music.
