Lunchtime Concert - American Flair

American Flair


Elder Conservatorium Wind Orchestra
Luke Dollman
Amelia Wang  flute*

Lowell Liebermann arr. Keiichi Kurokawa Piccolo Concerto Op. 50*
Bernstein Symphonic Dances from Westside Story

A staple of the twentieth-century piccolo repertoire, Lowell Liebermann’s entry into the genre is an exquisite piece of modern music with a wide array of influences and an accessible harmonic style. Leonard Bernstein’s Symphonic Dances from West Side Story synthesize everything great about the original score – jazzy licks, Latin dance rhythms, complex modern harmonies, and operatic melodies.
