Reviews

This ensemble for eight percussionists is written in a rhythmic groove found in much pop music of the '90s.  It only takes about four minutes to perform, yet each member of the ensemble plays important solos or motive patterns.  The two keyboard parts are written for bells and xylophone, but each player also doubles on tom-toms.  Drum textures include snare drum, four toms, three timpani, and muffled bass drum.  Additional colors include triangle, cymbals, hi-hat, and temple blocks. 

The piece opens with a solo introduction on closed hi-hat, and the hi-hat is the core throughout the piece.  The rest of the piece consists of solo breaks by the players, who react to motives or ideas from each other.  This is definitely written for young players, but the rhythmic drive and patterns will be of value to more advanced players as well.
