The Sonatina Project
Danny Holt, Piano

Today’s Program

Danny Holt’s program traces the history of the sonatina from the 18th through the 21st centuries, highlighting an eclectic array of composers–many of whom are unknown to even the most ardent classical music fans. Shining a spotlight on lesser-known composers is one of Holt’s passions, and this program does exactly that, using the genre of the sonatina as a jumping off point.
