Sonata for Flute and Piano : flute with piano
by Harry Sdraulig (2014)
The Sonata for Flute and Piano was completed in September 2014
and is dedicated to my partner, flautist Kim Falconer.
With this piece, it was my intention to compose a work of virtuosic demand for both instrumentalists, full of contrast and containing a wide variety of expression to give the performers an opportunity to showcase the breadth of their musicality.
The work is in four movements. A mysterious, introverted Prelude precedes a humorous, flickering dance, entitled Badinerie. The third movement, a more expansive and outwardly expressive Romanza, is followed by the Finale: a fast, virtuosic show-piece to round off the work.
Instrumentation: Flute, piano.
Duration: 13 min.
Contents note: Prelude -- Badinerie -- Romanza -- Finale.
Dedication note: Dedicated to Kim Falconer
