    I recommend this piece to any intermediate or advanced flutist! The phrases seem to just glide over the accompaniment. Such an incredibly beautiful and captivating piece.

    This sonata is one in which I feel like I am flying the entire time. The very lyrical lines are a staple in almost all of Ewazen's writing, and fits so beautifully in this piece. The piano accompaniment to the flute is just perfect, and with the swirling rhythms...

    and continuous flow of melodic lines, this Sonata is enrapturing for the audience as well! It's just a wonderfully written sonata!
