A lovely original work, perfect for recitals.
Review: "A delightful piece by English composer Martin Yates, whose eclectic style is fast earning him popularity. For studios, colleges, conservatories and professionals." - New Issues September 1994
Review: "Interesting and refreshing Sonatina in three movements. A lively first movement with some technically challenging passages interspersed with a lovely lyrical melody. The second movement states 'like a French Chanson' and provides a charming tune before another lively movement to close, again with some faster passages covering the whole of the instrument. Probably suit a strong post grade 8 student upwards and should not pose too many difficulties to get together with the piano part which is clear to read and not too demanding. The second movement would work well on its own as a concert item." - Dr. Rachel Smith DMA, MA, BMus (Hons), FTCL - March 2013
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
