Sonata for Flute, Viola and Harp
Written in 1915 by French impressionist composer Claude Debussy, The Debussy Sonate features flute, harp and viola. This unique combination has inspired composers and lead
to a greatly expanded repertoire. The Debussy Sonate is the centerpiece of Sunday’s program. The concert will also feature a new work by Emmy award-winning composer Bruce Broughton, as well as, the viola and harp Fantasy Sonata by Arnold Bax.
We have commissioned about 140 new works for flute, viola and harp – including 2 triple concertos and one piece for chorus, organ and trio. Because we also created a publishing company to disseminate new works for our combination (and other contemporary music) much of this repertoire is being performed all over the world by many artists. Much, if not all of this music, will be new to the audience. I will be speaking to the audience throughout the performance and helping to guide them through the music to highlight what is so magnificent about it all! –Marcia Dickstein
