Hot Salsa by Thomas Schudel
For Piccolo and Piano
Duration: 3:00

Hot Salsa was written for a talented young performer, Gwyneth Bergman. I wanted a piece that had a bit of a challenge for the young piccolo performer and that had an interesting part for the pianist. The title was suggested by my wife, who is a wonderful flute and piccolo performer, as sometimes titles are harder for me to come up with than the music. Hot Salsa seemed to capture what I was after - thus the name. The staccato-like opening should be contrasted by the lyric middle section with a return of the bouncy main theme for an exciting ending. - Thomas Schudel
