Sonata for Flute and Piano composed by Giancarlo Aquilanti (b. 1959-)
Written for Flute and Piano
Includes score and parts
In the past few years, I have been attempting to be as Italian as possible in my music. In my latest compositions, I have been trying to use tunes, chords, and contrapuntal techniques that go back to my childhood and to my first compositional studies. In fact, the first movement of this composition is in a classic sonata form. After a short introduction, two contrasting themes are presented, developed, and replicated. In the second movement, “La Melodia Barocca” I tried to write what one would call a “beautiful melody.” The last movement is a typical ABACADA rondo form.
