Sonata #2 for Flute and Piano by Eric Ewazen
For flute and piano
Published by Theodore Presser Co.
Duration: 21 minutes

Ewazen's second sonata rides on cosmopolitan sparkle inspired by a party atop Atlanta's Hilton Toweres, looking down at the city with live jazz in the background in celebration.  It is bold and dramatic, shimmering with light, bouyancy, and drama – reflecting the Atlanta skyline from high up in the sky.

The first movement has quickly shifting rhythms, large leaps, and gestures that jump and cascade virtuostically, with low, bell-like piano chords offsetting brilliant flute gestures that rise and fall. The second movement provides an opportunity for the listener to relax and dream, to be transported to Elysian fields as the flute sings gentle melodic figures with the piano providing a subtle, ringing arpeggiated accompaniment. The final movement bursts with joyful life and energy, with the prominant, bright Lydian mode informing the celebratory, playful and once again virtuostic musicl gestures in both instruments, bringing the work to a rousing and exhilarating finale.
