Program Notes

Review

Anthony Cirone has adapted 50 etudes from his widely used Portraits In Rhythm snare drum book for multiple percussion setup in a text that is a welcome addition to the percussion literature. Each of the short, one-page studies contain a wide variety of rhythms, meters, meter changes and metric subdivisions that would form the groundwork of any percussionist's education. The rhythmically challenging pieces, now combined with the element of multiple-surface performance, will add another dimension to students' repertoires. One important feature of the book is the single setup required for all of the etudes: four toms, bass drum, bongos, five temple blocks, three woodblocks, three cowbells, two cymbals, triangle and gong (although not all pieces use the entire instrument list). This feature would allow a teacher to permanently assemble the setup and instruct many students on different etudes simultaneously. Each piece is musically sound and efficiently orchestrated, with stick choices and recommended stickings included. Cirone has, once again, provided the percussion world with a musically useful vehicle for instruction and performance situations. Good high school or college students would nd this book challenging and rewarding for concert or recital situations, as several movements could be combined to form a suite. - Terry O'Mahoney, April 1997[1]
