Recorded on the CD A Touch of Tango
The first movement of the Sonata for Flute and Guitar merges the classical sonata form with the fugue. The theme of the opening fugue is also the first subject of the sonata form. If the form is classical, the rhythm and the harmony are related to the characteristics of the Argentinian tango. The second movement is a Milonga where two simple melodies are put together above an ostinato rhythmic cell of four equal notes. The third movement is a whirling 'perpetuum mobile', interrupted in the middle by an episode in which the flute and guitar play a melancholy melody. The flute part is highly virtuoso and requires the player to use circular breathing.
