Quick Overview

Universal Edition's New Study Score Series now includes a 20th century mastwork by Friedrich Cerha, the Concerto for Percussion and Orchestra. "The concerto is a thrilling sonic spectacular, as such things are predisposed to be. By the late 1990s, when it was written, Cerha was no longer concerned with his status in the avant garde, and the piece is full of rich, chordal textures and clear rhythmic drive that sound more of the early and mid-20th century than its end. He seems to have delighted in writing a big virtuoso concerto for soloist and amply employed orchestral forces, and the range of percussion timbres and textures put to the service of the music is astonishing." - Liner notes, Records International recording
