This research project is a brief analysis of the formal structures of five sonatas and performance suggestions for the G minor piano sonata of Wilhelm Stenhammar. This paper explores aspects of piano performance, such as the basic technical approach, interpretation suggestions, as well as examinations of pedaling, possible fingering, dynamics, and articulation. Selected aspects of texture, harmony, melody, rhythm, and form are discussed as they relate to the interpretation and performance of the G minor sonata. This paper also provides an approximate assessment of level of difficulty and serves as a guide for teachers, students, and musicians who are interested in the discovery and presentation of piano works which are not included in the traditional concert repertoire.
