Claude Debussy – Sonata for Flute, Viola and Harp: make music part of your life series


Classical Music  Classical Music
Doriot Anthony Dwyer, flute.

Burton Fine, viola.
Ann Hobson, harp.

– Pastorale. Lento, dolce rubato.
– Interlude: Tempo di Minuetto.
– Finale. Allegro moderato ma risoluto.

Syrinx, for Flute solo. Doriot Anthony Dwyer, flute.

The Sonata for flute, viola and harp (French: Sonate pour flûte, alto, et harpe), L. 137, was written by Claude Debussy in 1915.
The first performance was a private one at the home of Jacques Durand, Debussy’s publisher, on December 10, 1916 and the first public performance was thought to be at a charity concert on March 9, 1917 (Walker, 1988). However, Thompson (1968) reported a performance of the sonata at London’s Aeolian Hall by Albert Fransella, H. Waldo Warner and Miriam Timothy on February 2, 1917 as part of a concert otherwise given by the London String Quartet.
According to Léon Vallas (1929, cited in Walker, 1988), Debussy initially planned this as a piece for flute, oboe and harp. He subsequently decided that the viola’s timbre would be a better combination for the flute than the oboe’s, so he changed the instrumentation to flute, viola and harp

today’s birthday: Jesse Owens (1913)


Jesse Owens (1913)

Owens was an African-American track-and-field star famous for his performance at the 1936 Berlin Olympic Games, where he claimed four gold medals in the presence of Adolf Hitler and Nazi leaders, who had hoped the games would promote their idea of racial superiority. Though hailed as a hero, Owens faced segregation upon his return to the US, even suffering the humiliation of having to use a freight elevator to attend a reception in his honor. How did he earn a living after the Olympics? More… Discuss
