Sonata for Flute and Piano, Op121 (1977)
- Recommended edition
From the Publisher
Dedicated to Sir James Galway, who gave the first performance in 1977 at New Hall, Cardiff, this Sonata for Flute and Piano is in three movements.
The composer writes, "there are so many works for flute which are solely vehicles for instrumental virtuosity that I have attempted to write a piece where the musical element is more to the fore. Although this is a virtuoso work with a particular virtuoso in mind, it endeavours to be as interesting musically as I can possibly make it."
Performance duration (approx): 15'
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
