High Art (Piccolo Alone)
Piccolo with optional Toy Piano. Composed in 1983 for the flutist Robert Dick, High Art employs some of the special performance techniques introduced in Dick’s pioneering study, The Other Flute: A Performance Manual of Contemporary Techniques. A virtuoso study for the “coloratura” instrument of the woodwind family, High Art is a wonderful showpiece for an advanced player. The brief toy piano part, though optional, adds a nice touch of oddball color to this striking display piece.
