Program Notes: Say Can You (2020) is a nod to American fife and drum music. The piccolo’s opening melody represents the question: What does it mean to be patriotic in the 21 st century, while the accompanying electronic drum sounds suggest a mood of organized chaos. Soon, the piccolo wails through a series of glissandi, conveying a sense of desperation or angst, until it’s finally restored to it’s virtuosic strength and ability.
Say Can You is a companion piece to Homeland (for solo flute), a work that explores the concepts of home and country.
Commissioned by The National Flute Association for 2020 Piccolo Young Artist Competition.
