DESCRIPTION

I performed these pieces in the final exam of my Master’s degree in Classical and Contemporary Percussion at Codarts. My idea was to combine known compositions such as Zivkovic’s “To the Gods of Rhythm” or Klatzow’s “Dances of Earth and Fire, with more recently composed ones such as Geoffroy’s “And You And I…” or Perez Tedesco’s “Petra”, the latter being the world premiere that day. The audience experienced a wide range of percussion compositions written within a span of 30 years, witnessing versatility in technique and interpretation in percussion performance. Hence the title: “Faces”.
