Sonatine for flute and piano composed by Valerie Coleman
Duration: c. 12'
Valerie Coleman's first work for flute and piano, WISH was inspired by a poem of the same name. WISH is a dramatic tone poem for flutist and pianist alike, depicting the “Middle Passage” in which Africans were trafficked across the Atlantic by tall ship to be sold into slavery. Coleman's 12-minute sonatine serves as a powerful recital work, expressive and with thrilling impact.
