Schocker, G - Sonata for Short Attention Spans
2018 NEWLY PUBLISHED MUSIC COMPETITION RESULTS
Composed for the Dutch piccolo virtuoso Peter Verhoyen, Sonata for Short Attention Spans is a rarity in the repertoire - a concert trio for Piccolo, C Flute, and Piano. The "short attention spans" in the title refer to the brevity of the outer movements; the work is weightier than a sonatina, yet a bit short for a sonata. Sonata for Short Attention Spans is full of Schocker's beautiful lyricism and rhythmic surprises. The premiere performance is available at YouTube. For advanced performers.
