This sonata by Wolfgang Plagge is a difficult work that places many demands on the performer.  He/She must have a strong sense of rhythm, a solid high range, and good endurance.  The piece contains numerous sustained phrases, large leaps, and several hemiolas; moreover, the somber mood of the work can be emotionally taxing for both the performer and the audience.
