Silver Sonatina

A celebratory sonata with three contrasting movements.
Wilson, Jeffery
Oboe & Piano (+ opt. Flute)
7 minutes



This elegant and concise sonata was written to celebrate a silver wedding anniversary. It has three contrasting movements:

I. Improvisation – a lyrical and slightly enigmatic introduction to the work.

II. Romanza – a fuller and more spacious movement exploiting the sax’s mid-range. The optional flute is the instrument of the female half of the ‘silver’ couple.

III. Rondo – a bright presto in 6/8, puntuated by more assertive 3/4 bars. Short passages move (optionally) into the altissimo range.

The E-Edition PDF bundle includes the oboe part, a piano accompaniment and an optional flute part.
