Piccs on the Peaks for Piccolo Duet or for Piccolo and G Treble

by Carmen Marulanda. Commissioned by Flute Specialists, Inc. to premiere at the 2022 National Flute Association Convention as part of the showcase “The Highs and Lows of Harmony Flutes”.


In writing Piccs on the Peaks, Carmen Marulanda begins with a playful allegro section which is quite cheerful and catchy. The piece then transitions to a cumbia which utilizes the smoky low register of the flute to match the unique sound of the treble flute for a contrasting middle section. Trills and percussive articulations add to this communicative section which envisions a gathering of people. Piccs on the Peaks then returns to the opening motif to end with a happy, upbeat finish.
