About Sonata
The Op. 4 Sonata, except for some transcriptions, was the first work Kodály wrote for cello, while taking some cursory cello lessons. The Sonata was followed by the Op. 7 Duo and the Op. 8 Solo Sonata. In these three works Kodály revolutionized writing for the cello. Op. 4 opens with a brooding first movement, primarily lyric in content, which is followed by a dance-like second movement. The Sonata is strongly romantic in approach and is infused with Kodály's usual usage of the Hungarian language. When performed well, it calls for silence rather than loud cheers.
