Sonata #1 for flute and piano

The sonata #1 for flute and piano was composed in Russia in 2001. I was a student at the Music Academy and Kiril Volkov, my teacher of composition, told me to orchestrate the piano part. He said "...the piece is very good. The piano part is so intense as if you wanted more than a piano can give. A piano is just a piano. Make a concerto for flute and orchestra of it." Then, I told him I would compose a concerto, but this sonata would remain a duo. It was one of the final pieces for my diploma at the Academy.
