Daniel Dorff's Sonative de Giverny is the first solo composition for piccolo and piano in the great tradition of the French School of Ravel, Gaubert, and Roussel.  Giverny requires the piccoloist to perform with a beautiful, shimmering sound and an assortment of vibratoss; a big, rich low register; and a third octave transparency created through the mastery of controlled fortissimo.  All the French attributes of clarity and subtle dynamics are now being asked of the piccolo, and Giverny will become the landmark composition for expressive French piccolo playing.  Giverny now becomes a musical standard which other composers must attain.
For piccolo and piano
