The 2nd orchestral sonata was written in 2020 and was recorded as part of the Orchester*stücke project. In the same year I was able to win a final place in the National Band Association / William D. Revelli Memorial Band Composition Contest with the work. In 2022 the piece took first place in the composition competition of the World Association for Bands and Ensembles in Prague, where it was premiered.
