Solo for Percussion

description

Solo for percussion is a colorful piece build around 7 pitches on the vibraphone. These pitches are introduced one by one and surrounded by Chinese tom toms, chimes and metal sounds. Gradually the number of pitches increases until in the end a poetic arpeggio of all pitches prevails.
