The two works brought together somewhat arbitrarily in this album are like the reflection of a very agitated, very fecund period, when the word of a great philosopher or a great musician carried weight that is unimaginable nowadays. The word ‘sonata’ covered multiple meanings for Dukas who explained himself during his revision of Scarlatti’s works: neither he nor Jean Barraqué gave it that of an academic study. Beethoven’s teaching, said Monsieur Croche, ‘was not to preserve the old forms […] We must look through windows open to the sky.’
