Program Notes

premiere: 1984, Rothenburg ob der Tauber, Germany, Bernd Kremling, soloist


This two-movement work calls for a variety of percussion instruments including: bongos, tom-toms, temple blocks, five cymbals (one with rivets), a cup chime (cup gong?), chimes, gong, tam tam, vibraphone and snare drum. Although the setup is not small, the "choreography" demanded by the music is fairly easy. The first movement begins as the piano starts a pianissimo ostinato with a light tam tam roll for accompaniment. The trumpet and vibraphone enter with long tones over the shifting rhythms. These tones compress to the peak of the movement before the original texture returns for a quiet ending. In contrast, the second movement is a fast rhythmical vivace with changing meters. The percussionist mainly performs on drums and cymbals as the work progresses. Hummel incorporates an interesting trio cadenza as all three instrumentalists play jointly in free notation. The percussionist concludes the cadenza alone before the movement recapitulates to the main theme and a strong ending. The percussion part in Trio is not too difficult, as the music tends to feature the trumpet and piano while the percussionist adds timbre contrast and rhythmic drive. Due to the nature of the piece, Trio will probably be programmed by trumpet players rather than percussionists. - Mark Ford, February 1995[1]
