Pioneers of Percussion

Mumford Theatre, Anglia

United Kingdom

Joby Burgess percussion & electronics

Three musical cultures clash in these rarely heard and pioneering percussion pieces. The loud, muscular music of Xenakis contrasts with Takemitsu’s meditative stillness and Morton Feldman’s ‘anti-percussion’ is softer still – with fingertips playing woody almost weightless sounds ‘like dust in the breeze’. A magical experience.

The concert lasts approximately 50 minutes.
Presented in association with Anglia Ruskin University

Toru Takemitsu : Seasons
Morton Feldman : The King of Denmark
Iannis Xenakis : Psappha
