Sonata for two pianos is an eclectic, rytmical piece, full of energy, with strong influence of neoclassicism, jazz and composers such as Stravinsky, Bernstein or Poulenc. It was orginally written for the pianist Dubravka Vukalovic and me to be played as a Conservatory chamber music project. It is crafted in three standard movements - I. Allegro vivo: After short introduction based on chordal interval that will be repeated throughout the work, movement is based on imitations of two themes (first syncopated theme and tuneful second one) with constant motorical flow in sixtheen-notes. II. Adagio molto espressivo: A romance inspired by very personal touch of a moment. A sentimental first part is continued by quasi-improvisando first pianos’ cadenza which ends with abrupt cluster. The romance atmosphere comes again, followed by a sort of rythmical game between pianos in E-minor, ending in ppp. III. Allegro assai: Lively, humorous and fresh movement, very often based on jazz idiom. The main childish-like theme passes through different transformations and finally growing to augmented choral-like Coda in D-major marked "Adagio maestoso".

The work was premiered at the International Summer Academy Mozarteum in Salzburg (Austria) on 1st September 2006.
