Program Notes


This multiple-percussion solo is subtitled "Eight Musical Paintings," each of which is inspired by a painting by Andreas Felger. Included with the music are the eight paintings for inspirational purposes. It is suggested that slides of the paintings be shown to the audience during the performance. (The slides may be ordered from an address given in the score.) This composition is the collaboration of three individuals: artist Andreas Felger, composer Bertold Hummel, and percussionist Stefan Eblenkamp, who first performed the work. Twenty-seven percussion instruments are required to perform the work, ranging from snare drums to vibraphone to stones. Each musical painting is different from the other, but the vibraphone provides a continuous music color. The pieces are not necessarily filled with technical demands but musical demands. It would take a mature performer to realize the full potential of the eight "paintings." - John Beck, December 1999[1]
