The sonata for flute and piano tries to combine traditional types of musical form with the tonal language of free atonality.
The longing Adagio begins with an expressive exposition of the thematic material (ABA’), develops this material in a playful centrepiece and ends with a recapitulation in terms of a flute and a piano solo.
The jovial Rondo consists of 3 rhythmical thematic parts – each with interchanged roles – and of 2 meditative verses which discuss the interval of the minor third. A fanfare-like introduction and a thematically related coda build the framework.
In the Scherzo, two cool polymetrical scherzo parts are contrasted by a trio and a coda which lead the listener into new sound spheres.
