Sonata for Short Attention Spans (Two Flutes)
Sonata for Short Attention Spans (Two Flutes) by Gary Schocker (b. 1959), Published by Theodore Presser, Includes piccolo part, flute part, and and piano score.
Composed for the Dutch piccolo virtuoso Peter Verhoyen, Sonata for Short Attention Spans is a rarity in the repertoire - a concert trio for Piccolo, C Flute, and Piano. The "short attention spans" in the title refer to the brevity of the outer movements; the work is weightier than a sonatina, yet a bit short for a sonata. Sonata for Short Attention Spans is full of Schocker's beautiful lyricism and rhythmic surprises. The premiere performance is available at YouTube. For advanced performers.
