Liebermann composed the Sonata for flute and piano, Op.23 in 1987 as a commissioned piece by the Spoleto Festival in Charleston, South Carolina. The work, performed at the festival in 1988, was dedicated to flautist Paula Robison who premiered it alongside pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet. Liebermann’s Sonata for Flute and Piano won Best Newly Published Flute Work by the National Flute Society in 1989 and has become a standard in flute repertoire.

In the first of two movements, Lento con rubato, the flute and piano begin their mysterious atonal dialogue in a slow opening motif. Supported by the melodic and linear harmonic structure of the piano, the flute leads the journey in varying free time tempos, weaving out of pedantic quiet passages into brooding forte transitions, gradually returning to its slow opening theme. A stark contrast to Lento con rubato, is the second Presto energico movement that commences in a fury of effervescent zeal and escalates through a flurry of non-stop triplet-runs. Grounded by octave baseline melodies, the movement swiftly rises to a conclusion that leaves you breathless and gasping for air.
