Gerhard Frommel rejected pre-war Nationalism and Schoenberg’s dodecaphony, finding his voice in individuality and tradition. His piano sonatas are rooted in Romanticism and allied to the expressive plasticity of Stravinsky and Hindemith, articulated with vitality and tenderness in No. 1, sparseness and clownish grotesquerie in No. 2, and the sensual impressionism of No. 3.

“the First Sonata has a somewhat impressionistic, almost French feel, whilst the Second is much more reminiscent of Prokofiev than Stravinsky. Both works then surprise with their sudden Schubertian turns...[Blome's] previous acquaintance with Frommel lends her interpretations here all the more authority - she is assured, sensitive, communicative.”
