Charles Tomlinson Griffes was a prominent American composer of the early 20th century, known for his distinctive and eclectic musical style. This Sonata for Piano was composed between 1917-1918 and revised in 1919, presented here as a reprint of the original publication by G. Schirmer from 1921. An introduction by award-winning pianist Xiaoya Liu in both English and Chinese provides some insight into the life of Griffes and the history of this wonderful sonata.
