A Piccolo Celebration (2002) by Carson Cooman
For Solo Piccolo
A Piccolo Celebration (2002) for solo piccolo was written for and is dedicated to Dolores Zdancewicz, in celebration of her new piccolo.
The work begins lyrically and expansively. After melodic development of the initial ideas, and extremely fast and rhythmically riving section emerges. Another lyrical/slow section interrupts this, but this time mateial from the opening is combined along with material from the fast section. A final fast section then occurs, bringing together all the material and driving towards the conclusion.
