Sonata for Flute and Piano
The first movement in a dance-like duple meter features broad-ranging
melodic lines for the flute with some polytonal colors and chromatic scales
as seasoning. Contrasting episodic materials recur in later movements in a
quasi-rondo shape though the work is other than a formal rondo.
second movement is an adagio, with a pedal based on the dominant
minor of the work as a whole. Interplay between triple and duple rhythms in
this slow tempo appear as it an improviso.
short change of character returns in a 3/4 adagio, as simple successions of
chords in parallel make the base over which the flute adds various melodic
a return to some elements and textures from the opening movement, a short
fughetta ends the work in an energetic up tempo.
