The Sonata for Flute and Piano was composed during 2004-2005 in Hampton, Virginia for Lori Shipley. The piece was written in a very undoctrinaire style–free of any “isms” that one might think of. The first movement is very aggressive, while the second movement is quite contemplative and dramatic. A concluding third movement is playful and reflective. The movements are to be performed attacca.
