Description

As the title suggests, Scott Fairdosi’s Deleclusiastics is a tribute to the famed French percussionist and composer, Jacques Delécluse and his indelible collection of snare drum works, Douze Études pour Caisse-Claire. In his piece, Scott quotes thematic material from etude number 1, a piece of standard repertoire for percussion pedagogy, auditions, juries, and recitals. These themes are brilliantly woven into a stream of challenging rudimental gestures but still recognizable to anyone who has played the original. In doing this, Fairdosi has blended both rudimental and concert styles masterfully. As such, this piece can be performed on a concert snare drum or a marching snare drum.


Instrumentation

Concert or rudimental snare drum

Reviews

This 3-minute work for solo snare drum pays tribute to the first etude from Jacques Delecluse’s Douze Etudes. Rather than focusing on the re-existing material, Fairdosi provides enough to recognize while tastefully interweaving some killer rudimental gestures.

The engraving is beautifully done and easy to read; I especially appreciate the attention to polyrhythms (ratios are used rather than messy brackets). While the reference recordings are performed on concert snare drum, I think that it would be very hip on marching snare drum. The performer should be comfortable playing rapid pssages at a wide spectrum of dynamics while maintaining control and quality sound production. This would be suitable for any students who has advanced rudimental chops, as well as the convert-style finesse to execute the etudes of Delecluse.

I have no doubt that this solo will be seen at many solo and ensemble festivals, as well as presented at countless juries and recitals. Kudos to Fairdosi, as this work pays wonderful homage to Jacque Delecluse, while adding awesome spice that will entice performers and audience members alike.
