Notes & Reviews:

This disc of the percussion music of Michael Colgrass written between 1951 and 1957 includes conversations with the composer on each of the works.

American Record Guide, November/December 2012
Patrick Roulet leads the Towson State University Percussion Ensemble for Three Brothers and performs in all the other pieces; in accordance with Colgrass's wishes, he also used calfskin heads when possible (percussion instruments usually use plastic heads now), which result in a much richer, lyrical tone in the pieces. Roulet is also a passionate advocate for this music and a very persuasive interpreter.
