Flute Sonata (Flute and Piano)
Composer: Somers, Paul
Flute Sonata (Flute and Piano) by Paul Mack Somers, Published by Theodore Presser, Includes flute part and piano score, Duration: 14:00.
A 70th birthday present for his wife, Somers' Flute Sonata is a three-movement work in A-B-A fashion. The second movement, originally scored for bass flute, was recast for C flute to retain cohesion of the Sonata as a whole. (The middle movement has also been extracted as a solo for bass flute and piano, Dark Lake - 494-03140.) The finale ("allegro energetico") is a dynamic and punchy romp to a satisfying conclusion.
