van Leeuwen, Ary - Sonatina in the old style for 3 flutes
Ary Van Leeuwen's Sonatina In the Old Style for three flutes was dedicated to his dear colleague Leonardo de Lorenzo. Van Leeuwen (1875-1953) was a Dutch solo flutist who played in the Berlin Philharmonic, Philadelphia Orchestra, and Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra among others. Van Leeuwen told Leonardo de Lorenzo that "this was written with his compliments and best wishes in exchange for an old compliment of yours over thirty years ago." Lorenzo writes that this piece is "a charming composition, and not too difficult."
