Fifty years separates the composition of Larry Sitsky's first Sonata for Solo Flute (1959) and The Pied Piper, Sonata No. 5 for Solo Flute which was composed in Canberra in April 2019. This work alludes to the Medieval German legend of the Rat-Catcher of Hamelin, while his other four sonatas refer to an Oriental source. The Pied Piper contains internal sections labelled by the composer as A, B, C, and D, which each have their own individual character that is maintained throughout the composition.
