“Excellent repertoire for starter piccolos!”
These seven lovely little vignettes are just the thing if you're starting out on the piccolo. All are moderate in both range and technical challenge so you can concentrate on really getting to know the instrument. Cecilia McDowall is a flute player herself so she knows just how to make the piccolo sing out over the supportive accompaniments. The style is mostly gentle and the harmonies quietly quirky. By the River and Cantilena have lovely melodies to enjoy, March and Reel Music feel traditional, Gospel Song,and Swingtime are more jazz-influenced and Cafe Anglais is a stylish Waltz. Short, useful and very enjoyable!
