February 22 – Eight Pieces by Lowell Liebermann

Lowell Liebermann was born on this day in 1961. Beloved by flutists for his many works for the instrument, Liebermann’s Eight Pieces for Solo Flute provide vignettes of different musical styles rendered into his unique compositional style. The fifth piece, titled “Hongroise,” is perhaps inspired by Hungarian dances. Josh Stine, the flutist featured on the recording, is a Junior in the Bachelor of Music degree program at USC.
