Piano Sonata No. 2, Op. 31
Dianne Goolkasian Rahbee
Rahbee’s Piano Sonata No. 2 is an appealing piece in the contemporary genre. Its wide-ranging expressive array is filled with fervor. The sonata’s untraditional tonalities allow the advanced student to experience a broader sense of musical expression. The first movement is rhapsodic in nature, the second is a playful scherzando, the third is warm and emotionally expressive, and the last movement is exciting.
