On Wings of Song by Eric Ewazen
Concerto for Piccolo & Orchestra or Wind Ensemble
Arranged for Piccolo and Piano Reduction
Duration: 20:00

Mendelssohn's classic art song, “On Wings of Song,” set to the poerty to Heinrich Heine, provided the inspiration for the music. The sublime melody has become part of the repertory of musicials of every type – flutists perform the vocal line with the original piano accompaniment, pianists perform Liszt's transcription for solo piano, and violinists play Heifitz's setting for violin and piano.

The text of Heine's love poem describes the power of melody to transport a pair of lovers to a magical garden. The senes of music soaring through the skies made a wonderful image, and is so appropriate to the soaring nature of the piccolo. This piece was written for and dedicated to piccoloist Jan Gippo.

I. Over distant, murmuring waves
II. Under Serene Moonlight
III. All Earthly Cares Entwining
IV. Shall Fade Away in Dreams
