Row for Piccolo and Laurence Trott by Jacob SternFrom the Collection of Laurence TrottFor Solo Piccolo"ROW is a serious, expressive piece. Its structure is very clear. It is brief and to the point. These qualities must be heard from the first bar. The pulse need not be rigid; rather, allow the time necessary to make the phrases clearly lead to their points of greatest tension. This music is about tension and release of tension. That is the reason for the flutter-tongued notes. They must be played as the culminating note of the crescendo: we flutter-tongue because we cannot intensify anymore without fluttering." - Laurence Trott
