Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

The "Liebermann Piccolo Concerto" and its stylistic elements
by Glaser, Christie, M.M., California State University, Long Beach, 2014, 33; 1527939
Abstract (Summary)

The Liebermann Piccolo Concerto is a three-movement piece that is twenty minutes in length. This work displays virtuosic capabilities of the piccolo not commonly explored by composers. Typically, the piccolo has been viewed as an auxiliary instrument in ensembles to make a specific melodic line more easily heard above the group in contrast to the more typical soloistic role of the flute. Lowell Liebermann's goal in composing this piccolo concerto was to highlight the musical qualities of the instrument beyond its loud and high-pitched capabilities. This project report explores the unique stylistic aspects of Liebermann's piece and how it differs from previous writing for piccolo.
