Tune of the Day: Allegro vivace by Paul Merkus

for flute and piano

Today's piece is the third and final movement from the three-part “Sonata per flauto e pianoforte” by our guest composer Paul Merkus from the Netherlands.

The playful flute melody with many staccato notes is mostly accompanied rhythmically by the piano, whose part contains, towards the end, more and more answers to the flute's motifs. This way, both instruments proceed towards a festive high point, that is closed by a remarkable cadence referring to the one that concluded the first movement of the sonata.
