Japanese Tone Poems for Solo Piccolo
- Highly recommended
From the Publisher
David Loeb's Japanese Tone Poems for piccolo alone collects particularly evocative Japanese works from his ouevre - Nightcolors (P-15), Piccolo Perspectives (P-21), and Snowsounds (P-24), unique in their vivid portrayal of ancient mountainous forests, winter scenes, and ekphrastic musical descriptions of images inscribed on woodblocks and ceramics; a double-set of tone poems, perhaps. Despite the name, this collection also includes two works that use Dutch and Korean imagery, due to their tight integration and relation to Japanese sources and Japanese musical ideas.
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
