Irwin Bazelon: Fourscore John Cage: Third Construction Lou Harrison: Concerto for the Violin with Percussion Orchestra Eugene Kurtz: Logo I Christopher Rouse: Ku-Ka-Ilimoku J. (Billy) Verplanck: Petite Suite Gabriel Dionne, J. Riely Francis, Christopher Rose, Richard Skains, percussion One of the greatest contributions of twentieth-century American composers is the (re)emphasis of percussion. Drawing upon three fairly distinct roots-Asian influence, jazz and related Afro-Latin forms, and the experimental music movement -American composers have rediscovered percussion’s importance in relation to other global musical trends. A virtual “percussion renaissance” has influenced much of the contemporary composition since the composers on this disc began their work. The wide-ranging colors and textural possibilities of a percussion quartet are vividly displayed on this eclectic program of new and standard works for various combinations of mallet and percussion instruments.
