Harald Genzmer composed this Flute Sonata at the suggestion of Dr Peter Hanser-Strecker, Chairman of Schott Music. On 7 November 1999 Genzmer sent it to SMI with the words: "I enclose an entirely new sonata for the flute. I have been careful to avoid the problematic areas for the flute: there are no harmonics, no very high or low notes, and so on. I have really enjoyed working on it, and make no secret of the fact that I am very fond of the piece."
A rewarding piece for playing in concerts and competitions; well suited to the instrument and imaginatively composed.
