The piccolo is the most ideally suited of all modern orchestral instruments to continue the association between instrumental music and bird song. Not only does it play comfortably in that range in which so much bird song occurs (600 to 4000 cycles per second), but the natural qualities of its sound - clarity, brightness, penetration are the same words associated with bird song. Also, like song birds, its sound is capable of far more power than one would expect from such a small sound source. The music on this CD is clearly identified with birds but none of the pieces aim at imitation, except in passing.
