Two concerti on two different instruments with Greater Columbus Community Orchestra, Olev Viro, conductor. Ester Magi is an internationally recognized Estonian woman composer who is celebrating her 95th birthday in January. Lowell Liebermann is a living American composer who has written a beautiful showpiece for the many colors and characters of the oft neglected piccolo. Soaring, sweet, melancholy lyricism, poignant pianissimos coupled with the majestic, heroic, and high flying circus act.
