Programme Notes / Performance Details :OVERTURE FOR PERCUSSION (2003) by Howard J. Buss. This colorful, vibrant percussion quartet was composed for Juan Ponsoda and the OSA Quartet de Percussio’ of Spain. It is an exciting romp through vigorous, yet intricate passages. Each percussionist performs on several different instruments and all have significant solo passages. Percussion distribution: Perc. 1: Xylophone, 2 suspended cymbals & bongos; Perc. 2: Vibraphone, tambourine & tom toms (5); Perc. 3: Marimba, chimes (tubular bells), 2 suspended cymbals, tam-tam & temple blocks; Perc. 4: Marimba, timpani (3) & 2 suspended cymbals. This is a great concert opener. “A traditionally oriented quartet with a lively Polynesian/Oriental flavor, its contrapuntal melodies overlap and dovetail beautifully, as gracious cymbal swells connect each phrase and change of instrument.”- Percussive Notes. (6’) Grade V. B384 Recorded on the Capstone Records CD HOWARD J. BUSS:MODERN available from Brixton Publications at http://www.brixtonpublications.com/percussion-4.html#recordings Sound file may be heard on the Brixton Publications website at www.brixtonpublications.com/percussion-4.html
