Samuel Jones' Piano Sonata, composed in 1961-62, received its world premiere on October 17, 1963, in Alma, Michigan in a performance by the composer at Alma College where he was at that time a member of the music faculty as well as music director of the Saginaw Symphony. Since then the sonata has been performed by pianists Bela Szilagi, Lois Lines, Henri-Paul Sicsic, and others around the country. The work has especially been championed by the great pianist and pedagogue, John Perry, who has performed it numerous times in this country as well as in Europe, introducing it to a new generation of pianists.
