Kapustin composed his second Piano Sonata, op.54, in 1989, and it is the longest of the sixteen he has written to date. A hugely extrovert work, it combines many disparate stylistic elements into a carefully controlled structure: a vigorous first movement, a muscular scherzo, an unhurried and dream-like Largo and an explosive perpetuum mobile with a remarkable time signature. The confidence and ebullience of this Sonata are evident from the first bar to the last, as an uninhibited performance will amply demonstrate.
