Emma McCartney

from Central Senior High, performing Sonata for flute and piano, Movement 1 Allegro Gracioso composed/arranged by Francis Poulenc.

Audio isn't available for this submission.

Artistic Statement

I chose this piece because it is my favorite thing to play. The first few notes grab the listener's attention, and set up a light, fresh, playful atmosphere. Poulenc wrote an equally exciting piano part as well, which makes it so much fun to perform!
