Description

In Latin, “omnes trio” literally translates to “trio for all.” In her piece Omnes Trio, Andrea Venet expresses this notion of equality within the medium of percussion. She achieves this by scoring the work for a homogeneous set of instruments: a shared concert bass drum, a set of bongos for each player, and 2 opera gongs for each player. Similarly, a large portion of the musical material is homogeneous, where all three players are playing running 16th notes and splitting accents. Equally aggressive, drummy, and lyrical, the combined result is one hundred percent captivating!

This piece is dedicated to the University of North Florida percussion department class of 2021.

Instrumentation

Drums (bongos (3 pair), bass drum (shared between all players))

Cymbals & gongs (6 graduated opera gongs, 1 low gong or tam-tam)

Reviews

Have you ever purchased a moderately obscure instrument and wondered to yourself, “When am I ever going to use six graduated op- era gongs again?” Well, the time has finally come to dust off your old “Trio per Uno” setup! Andrea Venet has provided the percussion world with a great piece for this iconic setup. While in many ways these instruments cannot help but be reminiscent of their instrumental forebear, the work stands as a unique challenge well worth the investment.

In one succinct six-minute movement, Venet manages to conjure equal parts “drumminess” and lyricism by providing a work that often features a driving sixteenth-note pulse that dances back and forth between simple and compound meter. “Omnes Trio” has a healthy balance between meeting and defying expectations and is full of little gems to demand the attention of performers and listeners.

The engraving is immaculate, and the inclusion of a digital copy, for the score and parts, provides the added confidence of missing parts being only a click away. This medium-advanced work is a great addition to the libraries of any advanced high school or college percussion libraries and is sure to provide an added spark to your next percussion ensemble concert.
