Sonata for Flute and Piano (2005)

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.
