PICCOLOWORKS
NATALIE SCHWAABE (piccolo)

This is a superb collection of modern works for piccolo - most with piano but not all, and wonderfully performed to show the piccolo's full range which is wider and more varied in tone than many realise.

This album is proudly co-produced with Bavarian Radio.

“The soloist Natalie Schwaabe, piccolist and flutist in the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, plays quite captivatingly, brilliantly virtuoso and with perceptible playfulness. She is accompanied by Jan Philip Schulze. This program with modern music for piccolo, or piccolo and piano, is easy listening, providing mostly even really good entertainment.” – Remy Franck (Pizzicato)

“An album featuring the piccolo — known as the screaming twig or Ak47 for its ability to cut through the loudest orchestra — might be something that you never think you'd need, but this is a decent, if idiosyncratic, album. The pieces featured range from the ethereal to the almost-jazz and ... there is little to suggest a screaming twig.” – Jeremy Condliffe (The Chronicle)
