A highly programmatic work, depicting a pilot in the Second World War who, having been shot at, crossed the Pyrenees and almost was in safety when an engine failure launched him to his death. He fell on the village of Peña, Navarre, who on 11th November 1943 were by chance celebrating their saint day. His grave is maintained to this day. This sonata of four movements depicts all the trajedy, for those that read Spanish there are considerable notes offered in Spanish.
