One Summer: Sonata for Flute and Harp
- Highly recommended
The musical equivalent of important extracts taken from a diary. For colleges and professionals.
Review: "A three movement substantial work for flute and harp, suitable for the concert platform. This would suit advanced students and professionals looking for a new work by a British composer. Although I haven’t performed this work yet myself, it would take some getting together and practice on both parts due to the tricky rhythmic passages and time changes in places. However it is a lively and accessible work, without being too heavy or chromatic, which would be suitable for the average classical audience and make a valuable addition to the repertoire. The slow cantabile feel of the second movement provides a contrast to the more busy and lively first and third movements. I look forward to scheduling this into a concert in the near future." - Dr. Rachel Smith DMA, MA, BMus (Hons), FTCL - May 2013
Review: "One Summer was composed for the British flute and harp duo of Anna Noakes and Gillian Tingay. This is a very technically and musically difficult duo sonata." - Suzanne L. Moulton-Gertig University of Denver in Notes, March 2000
