Sonata, Opus 11B composed by Asger Lund Christiansen (1927-1998)
Edited by Toke Lund Christiansen for two flutes and piano
Includes score and parts
Duration: 14'20″ 

“The Sonata for flute and piano, opus 11B, by my father, Asger Lund Christiansen was in July, 1982 written for and dedicated to the great master Jean Pierre Rampal.  The sonata was first performed (1982) by Rampal.  Initially (1978), the three movements were composed as a trio-version (Opus 11A). Nevertheless, the composer came to prefer, without doubt, the present flute and piano version. Sonata, Opus 11B consists of three movements, Allegro, Lento-ma non troppo e dolce, and Allegro con brio.  The first movement is shaped in classica sonata form.  The succeeding and calmed Lento opens with a piano solo, likely inspired by J.S. Bach, and the entire movement puts the listener in a contemplative dreamlike mood.  The finishing and vigorous Allegro con brio is a kind of Rondo.  After a number of fast changes in memter the music develops to a longer section of 5/8 in molto vivace.  This simple dance is based on an original Danish folk tune.  The composer, like Carl Nielsen, often found inspitation in the national treasure of medieval melodies. In 1972 he finished his work on a large number of folk melodies released for voice with piano accompaniment.” -Preface by Toke Lund Christiansen
