Fun Facts:

  • No one knows where the nickname for Mozart’s “Kegelstatt” Trio came from. Describing the place a game named skittles is played (similar to a bowling alley), the trio’s nickname was probably applied by a publisher 80 years after the piece was composed.

  • The Jet Whistle takes its curious title from the effect at the very end in which the flutist blows air directly into the instrument to produce a rushing, whistling sound reminiscent of a jet engine.

  • “The main movements [of Micro-Concerto] are full of fussy descriptions of how to play some hand-held ‘toy’ just so. This micro-management of small muscle groups, and the fact that the concerto soloist is accompanied by the smallest orchestra imaginable, suggested the title.” -Steve Mackey
