DescriptionOrchestral study score. This work was commissioned by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. It was first performed on 23 April 1997, by Stewart McIlwham and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by the composer. The three movements should be played without a break.The piccolo may have obvious limitations as a solo instrument, but Davies is not one to shirk a challenge. What he does is to play with the stereotypical modes of the instrument, so that the military ´´pipe and drum” effect is hinted at near the beginning of the third movement, while the jaunty manner is recalled at the close of the first, but as through a veil. A potentially comic partnership with the bass clarinet is also dignified when the two instruments engage in meditative dialogue in the second movement. Solo part and piano reduction on sale. Conductor´s score and orchestral parts are available on hire.SonglistPiccolo Concerto

Piccolo Sheet Music With Lettered Noteheads Book 1: Michael Shaw
What every aspiring trumpeter needs as they move to the piccolo trumpet is a book that provides them with playable studies within a narrow range to work on all of the treacherous terrain around doubling on the smallest brass instrument. Studio Etudes does this perfectly, and Rolf Smedvig articulates the value of this book perfectly. Read his foreword below, and then get a copy of the entire book sent to your door.´´Studio Etudes” is a book that centers on all the most important aspects of music. The understanding of phrasing, rhythm, articulation and musicality are the focus of this book. These etudes are excellent for the young musician as well as for the most advanced virtuoso. I have found that when on tour as a solo performer, with a quintet or with a full orchestra, these studies give me all I need to stay in shape.´´Studio Etudes” can be used for transposition practice as well as for piccolo playing. This book written by my father, who not only was my first teacher, but who also understands completely the problems facing contemporary trumpet players. Rolf Smedvig, Empire Brass Quintet.
