Notes & Reviews:
Metier's top line release for 2015 is this program which may be the first 'music DVD' devoted to contemporary percussion works. More than that, it has been produced with stunning graphics and visual enhancements as well as 'straight' video of the performances thanks to the work of top Danish movie director Christian Holten Bonke. The program includes the most iconic of modern percussion classics, 'Psappha' by Iannis Xenakis, together with his much more recent 'Rebonds'. Works by Henze, Donatoni and Ferneyhough utilize wide ranges of tuned and unturned instruments, while the pieces by Jodlowski and Globokar use different materials altogether. Even for the non-percussion fan, the film is one to watch again and again. Mathias Reumert is one of Europe's foremost percussionists, having been awarded the DanishMusic Critics' Prize for 2015.Notes & Reviews:
