The ‘even’ sonatas are all coming together.  Find myself consumed with No. 4 – so Bartokian, a quirky first movement, a slow movement that is one long slow-burn toward red-hot intensity, releasing into a three-subject fugue that weaves its themes in and around each other in impressively masterful and intriguing ways.  Very, very cool.  Have caught my neighbors humming these tunes in the elevator.   Nice.
