Reddy completed sonata for piano early in 1979 when he was a student at the Royal College of Music, London, where he studied composition with Anthony Milner. He played the work several times in concerts in England, South African and Zimbabwe between 1979 and 1985, during the course of which several recordings were made. (See elsewhere on this site.) The original manuscript is lost, and all that has survived is a photocopy pasted into Reddy's performance books (from which he played his works in concert). This 20-page score is missing pages 3-4 and 8, which have been reconstructed, and the whole sonata typeset, for this new performing edition of his music. (Suggested corrections to this score would be most welcome, via the Contacts page.) It is a Webernesque serial composition in three movements (meant to be played without a break and written with consecutive bar numbering): an Allegretto in sonata form, a Theme and variations that incorporates a mini slow movement and scherzo,  and a final 'fugue in three voice groups' written on three staves.
