This initial sonata was sketched in 2000 as a tribute to Franz (Schubert, of course, a long-standing favourite of the present composer) whose Sonata No.9, D.575 (last movement, whose theme was etched on the composer's memory ever since he heard it on the wireless in his teens) is quoted at the end. The latest revision (22 Jan. 2016) has corrected numerous errors and maladjustments and adds a short concluding passage under the poetic heading "Envoi", as a kind of salutation.
- The whole collection of sonatas is being revised under a new title : Sonates-tableaux and each movement separated when necessary (Feb. 2021)
