John Williams' first song EVER?

Recommended Posts

I read that John Williams composed his first song in 1951, when he was 15 years old. Supposedly, it is a piano sonata. Are there any recordings of this song (even short clips), or any sheet music excerpts? At the very least, can anyone describe how it sounds?

I don't think even Williams remembers how it sounds.

a) In 1951, Williams was 19;

b) a Piano Sonata isn't a song;

c) Williams did wrote music and arrangements prior to 1951, but this was his first serious piece;

d) I wouldn't be all too surprised if the score to that work don't even exists anymore... and if it does exist, Williams most likelly won't care about it. This is just a student piece.

Actually, i would use my whip, after placing my hat, firmly in my head, hence avoiding the broken glass. :lol:
