DVOŘÁK Sonatina in G Op.100 for flute and piano

 

Flautist Juliette Bausor's engaging programme has a distinctively American character. Dvořák’s Sonatina, presented here in an arrangement for flute and piano that the composer made himself, is a work of many influences, including Czech folksong, American Indian song and Negro spirituals, and the slow movement was directly inspired by Dvořák’s visit to the MinnehahaFalls near St Paul, Minnesota. Dedicated to his children, Dvořák wrote of this attractive piece that “adults should (also) amuse themselves as best they can.” The American flavour continues with flute pieces by Aaron Copland and Samuel Barber. Copland described his work as intended to be “direct in expression and grateful for the performer”, fitting the instrument’s “songful nature”, while Barber’s Canzone is a lyrical ‘song without words’.
