Sonata by Claude Debussy
Originally for violin and piano – arranged for flute and piano by Denis Bouriakov
With haunting compositions such as Syrinx and Faune, it is no surprise that Claude Debussy is many flutists’ favorite composer. The Sonata for Violin and Piano (1918) is a deep 13-minute work in three movements — a wide-ranging exploration of both modernism and the luscious beauty that infuses all of Debussy’s music. This edition in the key of G minor by Denis Bouriakov includes alternate fingering tips for special veiled colors, and insights into his interpretation of Debussy’s magical effects.
