Concerto for Multiple Percussion and Wind Ensemble
Score and Parts
Osmosis, in its simplest explanation, is liquid moving through solid.
The ensemble in this concerto represents liquid form while the multiple-percussion, made up of the absorbent materials in the percussion family: wood and skin, represent solid form. The music in the ensemble weaves in-and-out of the percussion sounds often imitating the thematic material first introduced by the soloist. Performing on twenty-two instruments, including timpani and marimba, the soloist must maneuver in creative ways providing a visual element that only adds to the excitement of the music.
