This sonata is dedicated to flutist Timothy Hagen. In 2011, Tim premiered one of my scherzos for flute and piano:
he liked it but thought it was too short, and commissioned me to write him a sonata similar to that. I took this literally
and based the sonata around that scherzo (it is the 3rd movement).
