Percussion

It was an interesting Friday for music. I was very excited about the first piece of the evening because it was the first time I had ever heard a concert for percussion. When we entered the auditorium the stage was ready with some instruments I can’t name but they looked like xylophones or probably marimbas and a variety of drums and cowbells (yes I believe that really is the term!) In Any case I wondered how anyone would be able to get round to play them all, but the percussionist did, he moved really quickly round the group playing them. It was so different and really exciting especially when he began to vocalise. That was so unexpected. Although it was difficult to understand the piece it was absorbing and I would certainly like to hear more. He’s on Instagram and seems to be very busy with concerts in Europe and Japan. The piece we heard was by Dorman
