Sonata No. 12
• technically very demanding
• composed in 2001
• jazz infused modern style
Classical virtuoso jazz: Nikolai Kapustin (born 1937) is an excellent jazz pianist, arranger and composer. His piano sonatas are released for the first time by Schott Music.
The 12th Sonata from 2001 is technically very demanding. The two-movement work has already been recorded on CD by the composer himself and Carlo Levi Minzi. This is ideal for pianists who are looking for works between modern and jazz that sound like highly skilled but well-composed improvisation.
