Theodore Antoniou (born 1935) Celebration XV 

Celebration XV (2009) is a quartet written for a rather unusual instrumental ensemble (flute/alto flute, alto saxophone, violin and piano). The piece has three distinct sections. Like most of Antoniou’s works it has a virtuoso character and at the same time makes use of some idiomatic instrumental techniques.  The piece was dedicated to the neoPhonia New Music Ensemble and was premiered on March 16, 2010 in Atlanta, GA.

Cesar Franck (1822-1890) Sonata in A major

Cesar Franck’ s Sonata in A major was a wedding gift for his friend Eugene Ysaye, the renowned Belgium violinist. It is considered one of his finest compositions. Franck recognized the validity of performing the violin sonata on the flute so he published a flute version of the sonata. The transformation, which required only minimal alterations to fall within the flute’ s register, submit perfectly to its color and temperament establishing its importance within the flute repertoire.
