    This week’s MMM may be a bit more challenging than usual. I worked in a French composer many of you probably haven’t heard of, who wrote what I think is the most beautiful flute sonata of the 20th century. In addition, I was forced into 6 Down, who’s a not-very-well-known rapper and thus gets a perhaps less-than-helpful alternative clue after the music-related one.
    Here’s a link to the flute sonata, which is filled with sinuous, gorgeous lines and delightfully dissonant harmonies, as well as a third movement against which my best efforts barely made a dent: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C2dXTfjYPbE&ab_channel=olla-vogala
