This latest work in the Piano Sonata series from this composer is particularly ambitious in terms of length, which is why the 5 movements should be called segments, and are presented separately. They can therefore be performed individually. The distinct titles of each segment allows this to be done with greater facility. With regard to the 'recording' of this work, like the other composer's works, the sustain pedal is hardly ever notated, for audio compatibility reasons (in Finale, the pedaling is notoriously difficult to control), let alone the practical reasons that impelled Debussy for instance to relinquish the practice. The composer always pens his scores without any clear plan in mind, so that the end product is instinctive. The last stage of his practice consists in adding interpretation marks which also serves as an overall check. Despite this precaution, errors subsist, a source of great frustration for the composer, who is then obliged to continually revise his creations.
