Sonata for flute and piano was written in 1995 for the late Tallon Perkes, first flutist of the San Antonio Symphony. I had the pleasure to work and perform with him in various occasions. This sonata was written and dedicated to Tal. It is very exciting to finally have a recording that does justice to this virtuosic composition. Spanish flutist Robert Alvarez and Ukranian pianist Kseniia Vokhmianina did a superb recording last year and I am extremely pleased by the high level musically and technically of this recording. This work is a true Duo and it demands very high skills from both the flute and the piano. Other works in this recording are also first time recordings and include works by Mike Mower, James Rae, Daniel Sánchez Velasco, José Elizondo, Gonzalo Casielles and Pablo Aguirre. The sonata has four movements and is published by Alphonse Leduc & Cie. The recording of this Sonata will be released on June 3, 2022 during “The Whirlwind Tour” in Europe, with with performances in Europe: Madrid (June 3 and 7), Mallorca (June 9 and 10), Zurich (June 12), Montesilvano (Italia) (June 15).
