For quartet percussion

NEXT PREMIERE IN 2021: TEATRO REAL DE MADRID, April 11, 2021

Instrumentation

Percussion 1: 1 resonance metal (high Re tone, cue crotale), bass drum, 3 tom-toms* (high, medium, low), snare drum, bongos, one cymbal 14″ above the snare drum.

Percussion 2: 1 crotale tuned in Re, 3 tom-toms* (high, medium, low), hi-hat, snare drum, splash cymbal, bongos, one cymbal 14″ above the snare drum.

Percussion 3: 1 crotale tuned in Re, 1 semiresonat metal (cue anvil), 3 tom-toms* (high, medium, low), hi-hat, china cymbal, snare drum, one cymbal 14″ above the snare drum, jam block medium (or medium wood).

Percussion 4: 1 tuned tube in RE (cue tubular bell), 3 tom-toms* (high, medium, low), bass drum, bongos, metal guiro, one cymbal 14″ above the snare drum, jam block low (or low wood).

* Observations. It is important to differentiate the tuning of each player’s tom-toms differently between them. In the second movement, percussion 4 needs a string bow to rub with the crotale (re). It is important to differentiate the use of different drumsticks between the parts of the work. Especially in the first and third part, it is convenient to use drumsticks with the ball with a larger diameter, preferably made of wood.
