Sonata in E minor, for piano ("Grand Sonata") (incorporating the BACH motif)
[Berlin: Schlesingersche Buch- und Musikalienhandlung, 1911]

 

1911

The final movement really is what Godowsky called it, "Retrospect." It brings together not only themes from the earlier movements, but also works in compositional techniques favored in past eras - a Baroque-like largo, a fugue on B-A-C-H, a funeral march featuring Dies Irae.
