D. Loeb: Four Preludes for solo piccolo (Volume II) were written in 1986 as continuation of his experiments of four different shinobue (Japanese traverse flute) flutes he acquired in 1982 and composed the first set of Six Preludes.
The other sets of Preludes for solo piccolo were composed in 1994 (Preludes Vol. III), and in 1999 (Preludes Vol. IV).
David Loeb (1939) is and American flutist and composer. Born in New York, he initially studied music and painting. Later he studied composition at the Mannes College of Music in New York and Yale University. Additional studies of Japanese traditional music with Shinichi Yuize made a big impact on Loeb, leading to various compositions composed for Asian instruments, often combining them with historical (viols) as well as contemporary instruments (flute, cello, guitar).
Having studied Japanese transverse flutes (shinobue, kagurabue, and komabue) led to Loeb's first performance in 1983. In addition to many unaccompanied performances, he has also played in various chamber contexts, and also as a soloist with orchestras, chorus, guitar ensemble, percussion ensemble, and with ensembles consisting of Japanese instruments.
Overall, fifteen of his compositions (mostly for piccolo) are published by ALRY.
Since 1964 he is a faculty member of Mannes College of Music. From 1973 until 2000 he taught at the Curtis Institute.
