27. Other Luminous Things: Sonatina for Flute, 8.56

Other Luminous Things: Sonatina for Flute (composed July 2013) is a short sonata for Piano and Flute duet. It is a vigorous serenade to the shimmering textures and brilliance of the flute’s silvery timbre and fleeting dexterity. Rhapsodic and heavily designed with exuberant, celebratory evocations, it is 9-minutes of irrepressible energy and eclecticism. It bubbles with poetic colorful utterances, twittering, and rapid arpeggios of contrasting stark dissonances with cool, stirring passages. It is aggressive, vivid, dazzling and effectively convincing.
