Detail

Description

My Concerto for Piano and Percussion Orchestra was composed for percussionist Robert McCormick, who first suggested that I write such a piece, and pianist Eunmi Ko, who plays my solo piano music with imagination, grace, and understanding. The choice of a percussion ensemble as the orchestral partner to the piano is also a natural one for me, offering clarity and precision that suits my musical temperament. There are three movements, I. Dark and mysterious, 2. Flowing, but not too fast, and 3. Rapid and light. The six percussionist perform on an array of instruments that include drums, cymbals and gongs, wooden instruments, shakers, and mallet percussion instruments.
