January 22 – Sonatine by Dutilleux

Sonatine by Henri Dutilleux

French composer Henri Dutilleux was born on this day in 1916. He was not a prolific composer, but his works show great craftsmanship and attention to detail. He did not include anything he wrote before WWII in his list of works, including theSonatine for flute and piano. Despite his disavowal, the work remains one of the most popular works in the flute repertoire and is beloved by performers and listeners alike.

Performed by Zach Warren, flute (USC ’17)
