Program Notes

Concerto for Piccolo and Wind Ensemble (1992) was written for Susan Greenberg, former flute and piccolo with the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, and was premiered at the Twentieth Annual National Flute Association Convention on August 23, 1992 in Los Angeles, with the composer conducting the orchestra.

The three-movement concerto was written with the intention of exploiting the instrument’s entire range, as well as its full technical and expressive capabilities. The first movement features the virtuosic technical capacity of the piccolo, while the aria-like quality of the second movement highlights its lyrical abilities. The last movement is energetic and joyful, and again highlights the virtuosic prowess of the instrument and soloist
