Description: Loads of tiny attractive pieces (only one is longer than three minutes) from the famous author dating from the period when Bowles considered himself primarily a composer (1937-46) with one larger-scale work standing out: the 13-minute sonata for two pianos of 1947, still referring to popular American music but much more modern in harmony, metrical invention and technical, rhythmic and ensemble demands. Invencia Piano Duo.
