Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

These six world premiere recordings present one of percussion's greatest masters in a panorama of works by leading composers of our time. This remakrable journey through sound and rhythm includes electronics such as the dramatically funky climaxes to Bruno Mantovani's Le Grand Jeu, a dreamy musical halo around metal isntruments in Marco Stroppa's Auras and Jean-Claude Risset's sound illusions in Nature contre Nature. Peter Eotvos's Thunder is a unique quest to explore the potential of a single bass timapno, while Philippe Hersant revisits Berlioz, Schuber and Gounod in his Trois petites etudes. Rene Leibowitz's Three Caprices were among the first works written for solo vibraphone.
