Publisher Details :

In 1977 the OU Percussion Orchestra and Ensemble embarked on a project that developed into a national model for the encouragement and development of new music for percussion ensemble.  The OU Percussion Ensemble Commissioning Series regularly engages outstanding composers to write works for this medium.  The Commissioning Series is responsible for the creation of some of today`s staples in the percussion ensemble repertoire.

     In 1983 the University of Oklahoma funded the establishment of the OU Percussion Press, a non-profit extension of the percussion area. Through the Percussion Press, the commissioning series compositions plus other works expressly written for the OU Percussion Orchestra and Ensembles have been made available for purchase and performance by the world`s leading percussion ensembles. The Percussion Press` catalog numbers more than 50 works, all published in a non-profit venture as a service to the profession.

Programme Notes / Performance Details :

Curled Dimensions by Lynn Glassock is a mammoth eighteen-minute work for percussion ensemble that will challenge the best of players. Glassock`s keen use of orchestration really brings out all the rhythmic and harmonic nuances inherent in the piece. Curled Dimensions was awarded the second-place prize in the Michael Hennagin Composition Contest in 2000.
