Notes & Reviews:

The Los Angeles Percussion Quartet is back with The Year Before Yesterday, the follow up to their critically acclaimed and Multi-GRAMMY® Nominated album Rupa-Khandha (DSL-92150), which wide spread praise for the performance and aural presentation. This time the ensemble has teamed up with a new set of composers to expand the sonic landscape incorporating everything from traditional percussion instruments to found and created items (and even some triggered electronics). This album expresses not only a vast array of sonic colors, but also displays a vast range of emotional depth, moods, characters, and compositional styles that are only rivaled in variety by the wide dynamic range of the instruments themselves. The Year Before Yesterday is truly a treat for both the music lovers and audiophiles alike. Rupa-Khandha, LAPQ's seminal album pioneered a new level of sonic achievement in 2012 as the first 7.1 surround-sound high-fidelity recording of percussion chamber music. The quartet's recorded performance was praised by Neue Musikeitung for presenting "the entire color-spectrum of global percussion instruments intelligently and with great competency," while Percussive Notes hailed LAPQ's commitment towards "championing composers of thought-provoking and uncompromisingly intelligent music". The album received multiple nominations in the 55th GRAMMY Awards, including the prestigious category of Best Chamber Music/Small Ensemble Performance. This, their second surround sound album with Sono Luminus features works by Shaun Naidoo, Eric Griswold, Nick Deyoe, Isaac Schankler, Joseph Pereira, and by PAS Hall of Fame member William Kraft.
