For flute and piano, Duration 7:00. 16 pages. In Greek mythology, Daedelus was an inventor who created wings from feathers and wax, so he and his son Icarus could escape Crete by flying away. While Daedalus flew wisely, Icarus flew too close to the sun and he fell to his death as the wax melted. Composed for flutist Julietta Curenton, Harberg's Feathers and Wax soars with a contemporary jazz-inflected flavor.

For solo flute. The Wild Nightingale is a solo beatbox flute work based on the French folk song "Rossignolet du bois," which means, "The Nightingale of the woods." The second line of the song, "rossignolet sauvage," which translates to "wild nightingale," was the inspiration for this solo. Wild Nightingale uses phonemes to mimic the song's French text, while trills and virtuosic passages imitate the sounds of the nightingale. The incorporation of beatboxing transforms this traditional song into a new, wilder variation.

Liebermann wrote an emotionally charged Elegy to clarinetist Jon Manasse's late father, Dr. Gustave Manasse, a man who had spent a lifetime in the field of clinical psychology in pursuit of non-pharmacological therapies for the developmentally disabled. The Elegy begins in plaintive reflection, then passes through an extended section of increasing tension-and-resolve before a reprise brings the piece to a wistful close. The premiere in 2013 was by Jon Manasse (clarinet) and Jon Nakamatsu (piano). The composer has also made this arrangement for flute and piano available. For advanced performers.
