Description

"Performed at several concerts during the course of Bauer's lifetime, including a WPA Federal Music Project concert in 1936 in New York and a program devoted to her music held at New York's Town Hall in 1951, this three-movement work is Bauer at her best. The first movement, Allegro appasionata, develops its striking opening theme through a lushly impassioned harmonic landscape; the more restrained second movement, Sarabande and Variations, projects a quiet dignity and overarching sense of precise compositional control; and the evocative third movement, Scherzo—Allegretto giocoso, is alternately humorous and poignant, propelled by Bauer's vivid rhythmic imagination."
