Written in 1986, “on the roofs of Paris” the Sonata received its premiere at the Floral Park in Vincennes. It has since entered the flute sonata repertoire. The composer writes: “Youth’s smile, the intoxicating artistic stimulation of Paris and the endless colors of a Parisian Spring, all assisted me in writing what I consider to be my most pastoral work to date. Immersed at the time in the song literature and piano works of Debussy, Fauré, Poulenc and Duparc, I became fascinated with the idea of blending the linear compositional thinking I had learned from Bach and Brahms with the more fanciful, mosaic approach to musical structures I had found in the music of the French composers.”
