Fantasy Sonata for Flute & Piano Published by Southern Music Company USA.

The Fantasy Sonata by John Carmichael, edited by Roger Armstrong, is both challenging and romantic. The slow, florid first movement has two motifs that eventually unite toward the end of the movement. A deep chordal accompaniment, with a lyrical melody line on top, lends
atmosphere to to the second movement, and the third movement is enjoyable and cute. ……..The piano part contributes contributes immensely to this composition.

(Carmichael’s) tuneful and poised Fetes Champetres borrows 16th and 17th century French dance forms in a manner akin
to Ravel’s Le tombeau de Couperin or Poulenc’s Suite française. The smiling outer movements (‘Passepied’ and ‘Rigaudon’)
frame a ‘Berceuse’ of exquisite grace.

addition to the saxophone recital repertoire. Emerson Edition
