For many music lovers, the piccolo is the “little sister” of the flute. In the orchestra, it usually appears when an upper register needs to be added to the orchestral masses (as in the thunderstorm in Beethoven’s “Pastoral” Symphony), or when it is a matter of presenting very special timbres (in Tchaikovsky’s “Nutcracker”, for example). However, many music lovers are unaware of the fact that the piccolo was (and is!) also seen by numerous composers as a solo and chamber music instrument, and has therefore been the subject of numerous interesting compositions. To change this, Haika Lübcke, solo flutist in the Zurich Tonhalle Orchestra, has recorded a varied programme that allows the piccolo to show off all its facets, nuances and expressive possibilities in a fascinating way. Works by Daniel Schnyder, Jan Novák, Bohuslav Martinů, and others.
