"During two years of study in Rome, with Petrassi at the Conservatorio di Santa, I had scholarships to attend the famous summer school at the Academia Chigiana in Siena. During the second one in 1955, this sonata was composed in the space of ten days and performed by the New York pianist Leonard Mastrogiacomo (first two movements) and his fiancee Eleanor (last movement). The same two pianists performed the work in Rome shortly afterwards."

The Sonata has been performed by Gordon Watson, Malcolm Binns and Margaret Kitchin on the BBC.
