From the Publisher
In the spirit of the great 19th-century opera fantasies for woodwinds, Michael Webster has created a concert trio on the the many great arias form Puccini's Madama Butterfly. However, as the name implies, Sonata Cho-Cho-San is not the typical virtuosic operatic potpourri. Rather, it follows the plot, resembling a sonata mirroring Puccini's use of recurring and developing themes. Webster makes the most of the winds as versatile performers - equally suited to deliver Puccini's beautiful vocal writing, and to ornament and embroider the poignant themes in symphonic style.
