Daughtrey, Nathan

Medium/Advanced Concert Percussion

10 Players

The work opens rather mysteriously with fragments of the tune thrown about the ensemble and echoes of the bodhran (a traditional Irish drum) emulated by a dampened bass drum. A raucous drumming section ensues and gives way to the first full presentation of the reel. What follows is a series of melodic, rhythmic, and harmonic transformations of the Irish tune – some quite playful, some beautifully melancholy, and some majestically resolute.

Instrumentation: Percussion 1 (Bells, Tambourine) Percussion 2 (Chimes, Snare Drum, Xylophone) Percussion 3 (Vibraphone, Temple Blocks) Percussion 4 (Vibraphone, Bongos, Congas) Percussion 5 (4-octave Marimba, Medium Concert Tom, Tam-Tam) Percussion 6 (4.3-octave Marimba, Medium Low Concert Tom) Percussion 7 (4.3-octave Marimba, Low Concert Tom) Percussion 8 (5-octave Marimba, Low Concert Tom) Percussion 9 (Wind Chimes, Suspended Cymbal, Small China Cymbal, Sandblocks, Triangle) Percussion 10 (Bass Drum, Tam-Tam)
