Notes & Reviews:

This unique and fascinating programme features concertante works for piccolo and orchestra. The Piccolo Concerto by Lowell Liebermann was first performed and recorded by James Galway, and gained international fame. Liebermann is one of America's most frequently performed and recorded living composers. The New York Times said of him: "As much as a traditionalist as an innovator." The two contemporary works by Carla Galante and Alessandro Cavicchi, which are receiving here their first recordings, are written for and performed on the new MINI instrument by the famous flute builder Nagahara. It boasts improved dynamic contrast, better blending capabilities and an extended range. As a bonus, this release ends with a transcription of Mozart's Oboe Quartet K370, for piccolo and strings.
