The title literally means "stolen sonata", a reference to numerous quotes that occur along the way.  Some were intentional, some were discovered after the fact, but all are a tribute to music and musicians of the past.  The work was originally composed to be played entirely on the C flute.  Upon consulting with knowledgeable flute performers, alternate parts for alto flute and piccolo were written in as options for the 2nd and 3rd movements.
