Twoseater for Piccolo (or Flute) and Piano
- Staff Pick
“This is different!”
There's plenty of entertainment to be found in this piece and advanced players with a love of contemporary techniques will love it. Wind tones, timbral trills, jet whistles and plenty of flutter-tonguing all deliver a quirky and impertinant character which bounds along with loads of energy. If you'd like to play something completely different on the piccolo this would be a very good place to start!
From the Publisher
A duet as diverse as a trip with a good or trusted friend. Funny, entertaining and spontaneous moments, as well as quiet or exciting and rocking ones, make this shared experience unforgettable. Tilmann Dehnhard‘s duet for piccolo or flute and piano takes the audience on a musical ride with a mixture of traditional and contemporary playing techniques, which are comprehensibly explained in the introduction.
The title itself shows that in a “two-seater” both partners must complement and rely well on each other. The duo has to precisely master curves, highs and lows, which are embedded in contrasting tempi, articulations, rhythms and dynamics. In a moderate level of difficulty, both instrumentalists will be able to show different sides of themselves and their instruments. Therefore, this piece is not only effective for the stage, but also impresses in competitions as a solo piece for flute with piano accompaniment. It is guaranteed that the four-minute journey will leave audiences with more than one smile on their faces.
