Six Preludes for solo piccolo
D. Loeb: Six Preludes for solo piccolo (Volume I) were written in 1982 as result of acquisition and experiments of four different shinobue (Japanese traverse flute) flutes.
The other set of Four Preludes for solo piccolo was composed in 1986, Preludes Vol. III in 1994 and Preludes Vol. IV in 1999.
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.
