Death Whistle: Music for Solo Piccolo

"It takes a brave soul to consider playing the piccolo and a person of questionable character to love it" Nicole Chamberlain.
The piccolo, with its piercing high notes, has a reputation for being one of the most obnoxious instruments in the orchestra. But the instrument has so much more to offer, and flutist Melanie Walters will explore the playful, expressive and colourful sides of the piccolo in this 60-minute recital.
Featuring Chamberlain's tongue-in-cheek 2019 piece 'Death Whistle', the program will also include works by Kaija Saariaho, Carla Rees and more!
"This highly original program was superbly played by Walters, whose command of the tonal possibilities of this underrated instrument is truly exceptional" ★★★★★
