Amlin, Martin: In Memoriam C.D.H.
for Piccolo and Piano (or Strings)
Carl David Hall was piccoloist of the Atlanta Symphony for 32 years and a dear friend to all his colleagues. In 1999, the NFA commissioned Martin Amlin to compose a piccolo concerto for Carl to premiere at their annual convention. Today, Amlin remembers Carl Hall with this 4-minute poem, a microcosm for flute and strings (also to be premiered at the NFA's 2016 convention), published here in a setting for piccolo and piano. For advanced performers.
