Misc. Comments

This is a segmented sonata, its four movements being, like its predecessor, conceived independently. Its scope is particularly ambitious and up to a point, programmatic. The layout is on the regular two staves, but three are occasionally necessary, particularly in the Toccata movement, hence its title (very indirectly referring to The Day of the Triffids). The first movement was strongly revised in Dec. 2018, using Sonata 9 as a model (audio separation of both hands), not the other movements which have remained with their audio unity (which is not always in favor of clarity), but with an occasional third staff thrown in.
