The High and the Mighty by : Michael Daugherty
Commissioned by the National Flute Association; The High and the Mighty has become a staple of the piccolo repertoire. The work is inspired by the years following World War II in America (1945-1961); when air travel was considered luxurious and glamorous. The work is in two movements - the first features a soaring; lyrical tune that is flutter-tongued; the second begins with an angular cadenza that is followed by a robust high-altitude bossa nova.
