Keith Gates: Music

Sonatina for Flute and Piano


Sonatina for flute and piano was dedicated to Judy Hand, Gates' colleague for many years at McNeese State University. His collaboration with her was so strong that the Sonata for flute and piano is inscribed "another one for Judy". The Sonatina was a winner in the National Flute Association's Newly Published Music Competition.

Wayne Hedrick wrote in the guestbook of the website:

"I know Keith through his contributions to music for the flute. His Sonatina and his Concertino are true masterpieces. The Sonatina is on par with the Poulenc Sonata and grows in popularity. The Concertino is arguably the finest composition for flute and wind ensemble in the literature."
