Program Notes

Nightsongs was commissioned by trumpeter Harold Lieverman for a recital at Carnegie Hall. It is one of the very few pieces composed specifically for flugelhorn solo and features the dark lyric qualities of the instrument. It can be performed on symphonic programs with a large string section, with chamber orchestra strings, or in recital in its piano version. It can also be performed equally as well with either clarinet or trumpet solo and in this recent arrangement for flugelhorn and wind ensemble by Chuck Dotas.
