    “Lovely nostalgia”

    This lovely Sonata by the rather forgotten British composer Alan Ridout will feel a little nostalgic if you are a fan of tonal music. The Overture is fast and ebullient with a mix of cascading runs and rhythmic drive allowing the both instruments to shine. The beautful Serenade has a soulful melody over a flowing accompaniment which would be stunning in any situation, and the closing movement unusually starts with theme in the piano before the flute joins in for the six contrasting variations. This is destined to be standard repertoire and definitely worth investigating.
