Sonata in f, Op120 #1 by Johannes Brahms
Arranged for flute and piano by Emmanuel Pahud
I. Allegro appassionato
II. Andamte un poco Adagio
III. Allegretto grazioso
Flutists will enjoy this arrangement of Brahms’s “Sonata Opus 120, no. 1” in F minor, as they can present their instrument’s full range of tonal colors. Throughout four movements of different character, the flute is in intensive dialogue with its instrumental partner. In a singing, sensitive, tender, dance-like, cheerful and thoroughly humorous manner, both instrumentalists present romantic compositional art in its most perfect form. Listeners will thus experience a lively performance on stage.
