Quick Overview

Peter Schickele answered a commission by Woodstock Chimes with this second Sonata in two movements. Scored for five percussionists, the Sonata No. 2 focuses primarily upon the mallet instruments, using somewhat unusual techniques, and incorporates a beautiful section using four different wind chimes (Woodstock Chimes, of course). Premiered at the 6th annual Woodstock Guild concert in Aspen, Sonata No. 2 has been recorded by the Nexus Percussion Ensemble on the CD Drumtalker (Nexus label).
