Tim Adrianson - Flanagan Piano Sonata: Message Board

Tim Adrianson's Comments

I knew William Flanagan as the Classical music critic for the HiFi Stereo Review magazine, to which I subscribed in the 1960's and early '70's. As a composer, he was best known for his songs, but he did write an early Piano Sonata in 1950, when he was 26. Frankly, I find some of the compositional thought pretty awkward and labored, but there are lots of beautiful lyrical moments that quite clearly forecast his gift for song. As a parenthetical comment, he was well known in the Gay NYC circles as Edward Albee's partner, from the late '40's to the late '50's, when they elected to part ways.
