Capriccio for Percussion

  • Instrumentation: 8 percussionists

  • Duration: 3'

 

Program Note

Written in 2010 in Hyde Park, Massachusetts; revised in 2013. This is a raucous three minutes for eight percussionists playing nearly twenty instruments.  Polyrhythms, canons, and metric modulations abound; this piece eschews the basic ostinato and treats each player like a soloist.
