Programme notes

This three-movement Sonata was composed for flute & harp, written for the Arabesque Duo (Russell Gillespie & Lauren Scott) and recorded on its debut CD ‘Sonata’ in 2002, the world premiere being given by Clare Southworth and Lucy Wakeford at St. Johns Smith Square, London in 2003. Subsequently recorded by Clare Southworth and Lauren Scott on 'The Bad Tempered Flute - the flute music of Andy Scott' (Nimbus Alliance NI 6156), the Sonata has proved extremely popular in the flute and harp world, most recently being recorded by the German ‘Queens Duo’ on its CD The Art of Imagination.

The composer has worked in conjunction with saxophonist Gillian Blair since 2011, creating an alto saxophone part, which was premiered in the saxophone and harp version at the World Saxophone Congress, St.Andrews, Scotland in July 2012, by the Polaris Duo (Gillian and harpist Elinor Nicholson). Since then the Polaris Duo has performed the work extensively and recently filmed a performance of the Sonata.
