The 20 graduated solos in Michael Udow and Chris Watts' The Contemporary Percussionist require from 2 to 12 instruments and are ideal for recital or solo festival. The comprehensive introduction provides essential information for performing today's multi-percussion solos.
"Unlike any other instrumentalist, the Western percussionist is expected to perform on virtually an unlimited range of instruments either singly or in a multiple instrument set-up. At times, composers request rapid shifting from one instrument to another which often requires diverse performance techniques. The multiple percussion solos contained in this text will assist the performer in developing techniques and concepts necessary to perform music of the past, present, and future. It is our intent that several of these solos may be selected and performed as a suite for multiple percussion and used as recital repertoire".
