Tweet (Piccolo Alone)
Tweet (Piccolo Alone) by Daniel Dorff (b. 1956), Published by Theodore Presser, Includes piccolo part only.
Inspired by enthusiastic early birds outside the composer’s window, Tweet was the perfect answer when Dorff needed a unique musical idea for solo piccolo. Commissioned by Lois Bliss Herbine, who will premiere it at NFA 2011, Tweet’s commission fee was gardening lessons and a carload of transplants from Herbine’s garden to the composer’s yard. For advanced piccoloists. Dur.: 4’30”
