Composed for the Dutch piccolo virtuoso Peter Verhoyen, SONATA FOR SHORT ATTENTION SPANS is a rarity in the repertoire – a concert trio for Piccolo, C Flute, and Piano. The “short attention spans” in the title refer to the brevity of the outer movements; the work is weightier than a sonatina, yet a bit short for a sonata. SONATA FOR SHORT ATTENTION SPANS is full of Schocker's beautiful lyricism and rhythmic surprises.
