This sonata is my very first large composition for piano solo. Romanticism, horror and fate expressed in the story of Edgar Allan Poe could not fail to inspire an 18 years old pianist and composer. The outstanding characteristic of the whole piece is the stressed use of the keyboard low register that conveys the dark color of Poe's text.
