Sonata for Flute and Piano was composed in 1978. The work was written for, and premiered by flautist John Lagerquist.
The Sonata is in three movements, marked "lively", "dolce e legato", and "with spirit." This work was one of the first compositions created after the composer had completed her Doctoral Studies at the Hartt School of Music and was "on her own." Thus, there is a special exuberance and freedom in this music.
