Gareth Farr: Fifty Fifty (Solo Percussion)
This work is published for performance or study. This work is published as a saddle-stitched performance score booklet for performance and study.
Pint-sized yet power-packed, Farr’s for solo bongos was composed at the request of Dame Evelyn Glennie as part of her 50 for 50 project. Farr injects a range of playing techniques into this 50-bar work — drumsticks and a mini maraca come into play alongside more conventional hand and finger work in articulating rapid-fire passages that twitch with tumbling accents. Rhythmic subversion even dominates the more spacious snatches of time, making this work an enjoyable challenge for accomplished percussionists.
